A big thank you to everyone on behalf of the Jubilee Team for making this a Jubilee to remember. All of the events over the three days were enjoyed and greatly appreciated.
Well – it’s almost all over now. We still have a few long term projects as shown below.
The Time Capsule will be arriving soon. Please give your suggestions to the Parish Clerk as soon as possible.
Additional benches are to be installed on the recreation ground. There is a delay as it is necessary to get appropriate ones that offer good value for money. If you or your group would like to sponsor a bench with a commemorative plaque of your choice, please contact the Parish Clerk.
We held a Songs of Praise on Sunday 7th October at St. Michael’s. This took place jointly with Atworth Independent Church. It was an extremely enjoyable, uplifting and successful evening.
Here are a few photographs of the Saturday which were kindly given to me by David Webb (Who has a picture of David on the slide?)
From the many suggestions at the very well attended initial meeting, some items have been accepted to move forward, but could take time. These are:
***Jubilee gates at entrances along Bath Road (may improve lowering of speeding traffic).Grants totalling £4,000 from the Area Board and Mark Griffiths have been awarded to the Parish Council for these. We are very grateful for this support. The gates could go up this year…..and it all started here!
***Seating and flowering shrubs at quiet end of Recreation Ground. Thank you to Kirsty at The White Hart who been raising funds towards the first bench. If you as an individual or as a group, would like to donate a bench, please contact the Parish Clerk. An inscribed plaque on the seat is acceptable.
***More daffodils. Please let the Parish Clerk (who is doing our admin) know of locations to be considered.
***Subtle illumination of the clock tower was suggested at a subsequent meeting and this is being investigated by the Parish Council.
