We are desperately looking for 2 or 3 keen, energetic volunteers to help with fundraising to build a slide in the children's play area in Tommy's Close. Around £5000 additional money is needed.
Unless someone comes forward to help, it will take a long while to raise the money required as we rely on donations from functions such as the Vintage Fayre and this year's BBQ. However, this money will only meet a small proportion of the cost. More »
Some of you will be surprised by the high cost or question why we need a slide at all. Cost is down to the fact that the slide must be safe and well made to stand up to robust use. With regard to why we should build it; well it was suggested as something that would add to the fun of the play area for those who use it for their children or grandchildren and there was no argument with that!
Money could be raised through collection of voluntary donations and / or through running enjoyable social activities. But we need some volunteers to take this forward.
For those of you who don't know, Tommy's Close is the field between King Edwards Way and the Manton Road. It is a registered charity run by unpaid trustees on behalf of Edith Weston and receives no money from the council to keep it repaired, cut the grass or install new equipment. This all comes from donations.
Please think about whether you want a slide and whether you can volunteer to help raise the money needed. Please don't rely on someone else to volunteer because they probably won't.
If you want to talk to me about this, just pick up the phone.
Thanks, Malcolm March

The aching limbs of soldiers from 2 Medical Regiment were soothed by the knowledge that their cycle ride has raised more than £9,000 for Blesma.
The 20-strong team of medical personnel completed a 546-mile cycle ride through three countries from their previous base in Germany to their new home at St George's Barracks in North Luffenham.
The medics, mechanics, clerks and physical training instructors who all serve with 2 Medical Regiment took on the challenge to mark the Regiment's re-location from Haig Barracks in Hohne, Germany. More »

Coming up soon is the new website for the village. This will replace the existing one as there is a requirement from the Government that all Parish Councils have one. It has to comply with certain standards and all documentation that is created by the PCC to be stored.
The decision to opt for this particular product was based on ease of use for visitors, simple editing for nominated contributors and an on line diary for events that effect life in the village. More »
Please be patient. There will be errors and we hope that our occasional readers will keep us on our toes.
