10 August – a very social Saturday!
Lots of people called into the Village Hall and stayed to enjoy refreshments, chat to neighbours, and see what’s going on in the villages. A wonderful display about the imminent Village Show gave a hint of the tea cosies, large marrows, necklaces, jams, veg, that even now are being prepared for the Show on 7 September; local groups and activities were on display; the Parish website team showed how to sign up for information; our Community Support Officer and Neighbourhood Watch contact were there to answer questions.
Local products were for sale from our farmers (pork pies sold like hot cakes!), gardeners and craftspeople. The predicted glut of courgettes was complemented by marvellous crops of blackcurrants, beans and tomatoes sold to raise funds to support further developments of these events. And all this made beautiful by Rachel’s incredible bunting showing her work with the Knit and Natter group.
Our next Saturday Social will be a Christmas event on 7 December.
There is now an archive of all of the past articles available on the Parish website under the ‘News and Events’ menu. You can also use the search box at the top of the page to find anything of interest on the site. The web team will be meeting again shortly, so if you have any comments or suggestions around the site and what you would like to see on it contact us here : email@example.com
We are always looking for new volunteers to help build, promote and maintain the site so if you’d like to help please let us know; and. most importantly, keep your contributions flowing!
Would anyone like to begin to order the York Press, to collect from box at my gate in the village hall car park? Please let me know if you are interested, on 468571.
Unfortunately tomorrows spring clean of the village hall has been postponed and will be reorganised during April. Thank you to those who offered to help and apologies for the lack of notice.
The Fawcett and Cussins families would like to send heartfelt thanks to their wonderful neighbours for their assistance in operation “ditch dig” this morning.
We cannot promise that we have solved Claxton’s flooding problems but we have unearthed another previously unknown land drain which we have successfully rodded and cleared. Hopefully, every little helps! Thanks also to the Thompsons for the excellent work they have carried out further down the ditch. It will be interesting to see the impact the next time we have heavy rain.
nb. It would seem that there is a considerable amount of fuel oil leaching into the drainage from somewhere on Main Street in Claxton, so it might be worth while anybody with an oil tank getting it checked out as it could be a big saving for somebody.
Many many thanks to everyone who helped.
The Parish Council Website team will be meeting on Tuesday to discuss and plan for the year ahead. So let us have your feedback please.
