Help Wanted….

We are looking for volunteers to help us build the Claxton & Sand Hutton Website into something the villages can be proud of.

Specifically, we need the following

  • Moderators : to look at any contributed articles and pictures and make sure they are suitable for publication according to the editorial guidelines. We may also introduce a discussion forum in the future which will need a moderator.
  • Helping Hands : are you web-lierate? if so we’d like your help in showing your friends and neighbours (especially the elderly) around the site and helping them to make the most of it.
  • Subject Experts / Correspondent : are you an expert in some area (e.g. Science, History, Sport) – then we’d like your help as a guest editor or contributor.
  • Reviewers : been to an event recently? : then write a review and tell us what you thought.
  • Clubs and Societies : Do you run a local club or group? If so we’d like to help you make the most of the site to promote your organisation to the villages and the outside world. We’ll provide hands-on training and support.
  • Kids : What would you like to see on the site? We’d love your ideas and help.

Whether you have a few minutes or several hours a week to help us out it would be most appreciated. You don’t need to be a technical whiz – all training will be given and help will be at hand if needed,

If you are interested in getting involved or would like more details drop me a line (Andrew Fawcett) amfawcett@gmail.com or give us a call (01904) 468020.

Village Hall Committee Appeal!


Your Village Hall belongs to YOU– it is the only community space in the two villages of Sand Hutton and Claxton.  The Village Hall is the venue for a range of activities ranging from WI and Green Finger Tips Gardening Club to the Village Show, Folk Evening, Bowls Club, Mother and Toddlers, Heritage Group, Women in Harmony, SJ’s Nursery, Film Nights and the Christmas Party.  The Village Hall Committee is responsible for;

  • overseeing the use of the Hall
  • implementing the Hall’s future strategy to include new activities and refurbishment of the fabric of the building
  • allocating resources from its reserves
  • dealing with maintenance of the Hall and grounds including on occasion actively helping with these tasks
  • coming forward with new ideas on how the Hall can be used more frequently

One members of the Committee, Helen Lyall, is leaving the Committee altogether and Linda Spaven and David Brewer are stepping down as Officers, all after many years service, at the AGM in April.  We are therefore looking for new Committee members.  Linda has been responsible for Village Hall bookings and we need therefore in particular one of the new members to take on this responsibility.

Committee meetings are held every two months.

Why not come and ASSIST us to help keep the Village Hall the centre of the community?

If you wish to assist please contact Pete Tidball either by phone (01904 468470) or email (petejtidball@gmail.com)
