We held our Coronation event- a Royal Picnic in the Park on Sunday 7th May on the village green. It was only made possible by the help of a number of people in helping set it all up. And the people who helped by volunteering their time to assist us on the day. The day was well supported, the sun shone which makes all the difference. The children enjoyed the bouncy castle and play equipment whilst the adults enjoyed some liquid refreshments and food. The bake a cake competition was a great success with some amazing cake creations. Which we then all consumed with much gusto! All in all a great day.
Benches for the Village Green
Three bench-tables were delivered to the Village Green on Saturday 5th March. They were donated by the Parish Council and partially funded by the Area Partnership. The benches were constructed by Peter Wright a joiner of Finghall. There to receive delivery of the benches on behalf of the community were Joan Hainsworth, Clerk to the Parish Council, Hilly Dobson, Parish Councillor, George Tomlin, Chair to the Reading Room Committee and Jeffrey Lane Committee Member and local resident. The benches will be used for picnicking by both residents and visitors alike and will greatly enhance the usage of the Village Green. They will also be of great use for community events and the forthcoming celebrations of the Queen’ Platinum Jubilee.
