CONSTABLE BURTON READING ROOM UPDATE
AS at 5th May 2021
With the Government’s lifting of covid-19 restrictions it is highly likely, but not yet confirmed, that the Reading Room will be able to re-open with effect from 17 th May 2021, or thereabouts.
There will no doubt be restrictions connected with this.
Repairs to the Reading Room’s toilet block are now complete.
Double Glazing. We are still awaiting planning approval from RDC.
Reading Room Committee Meeting
It is proposed that the Reading Room Committee will meet onMonday 24 th May 2021 at 6:30pm. The meeting will again be restricted to committee members only. This being the 8th Extraordinary meeting of the ,pandemic, it is to be hoped it may be the last so named. An agenda will be published in due course.
No Frills BBQ. It is proposed to hold a ‘No Frills BBQ’ on the Village Green on Saturday 12 th June, the occasion of the Queen’s Birthday Parade. Yet to be discussed by the committee but please pencil the date into your diaries.
Summer Fair. As previously published the Summer Fair will take place on Sunday 29 th August. Details are yet to be discussed by the Reading Room Committee but will be published as soon as is possible. Duck ticket sales have already started and it is highly likely that the races will be wet!
Halloween. This spooky event will no doubt be held on the 31 st October.
Other Events. Suggestions for other events are needed from the community.
Constable Volunteer Support Group
The shopping roster will conclude on Friday 14th May after 60 weeks!
‘Thank you’ seems little enough for what has been a truly tremendous effort.
While the roster has reached its ‘use by date’ the group will continue to exist to assist members of the community as and when required.
New Members. If you wish to join the group please contact Hilly Dobson. The only current requirement is that you have the WhatsApp for ease of rapid communication.
After an extremely difficult 18 months it is hoped that this and previous updates have helped to keep you all informed as to what has been happening and to what we are planning for the immediate future. Please let me have any comments or suggestions that might benefit our community.
