Tour de Sands latest


It’s just 3 weeks until an army of about 70 cyclists set off from Easton on the Hill on Saturday April 22nd to take part in our epic “E2E” ride, from Easton on the Hill to Elviria in Spain.


Jerry Watson will be riding all 1600 miles with 3 friends all the way, and will be joined by the rest of the group on the first day and in “legs” along the way through France and Spain.


Many villagers have taken up cycling and are in training for this major challenge in honour of the much missed Sandra Watson. We will be relaying Sandra’s own bike all the way, with family, friends, and neighbours of Sandra’s taking turns to have the honour of riding her bike.




If you haven’t been approached by one of the riders yet, please consider donating to the Tour de Sands Charity, which will support St Barnabas Hospice and Lymphoedema Support Network.

 

Go to https://www.tourdesands.com  where there's more information on the Charity, the E2E ride, and how to donate.


We're also "live" on Twitter and Facebook now - so if you are of a Social Media persuasion, please find us, share us, like us, retweet us, etc, and help get the world out.




We’re also planning a big send-off party; the “Carbs before Marbs” Party is on the Friday 21st April from 7.00pm.


We hope to see as many people as possible there, carbo landing ready for the Grand Depart the following day. Alex will serve a 3 pasta buffet plus salad, and tickets are £12.00, of which 50% will go to the Charity thanks to Alex's generosity. Tickets are available from the Blue Bell, the Village shop, or Tim Nicol at 16 Church Street.


Special Polo Shirts and Water bottles will be on sale and there will be several opportunities to support the Charity while having a fun evening.

 

If you can’t join us on the ride itself, here’s a couple of options:




Any queries, offers of help and support, contact me - and come and see the spectacular send-off and  “Grand Depart” at 10.00 on Saturday April 22nd at the Blue Bell.

 

Thanks

Parish Council Meeting


Village Hall, New Road, Easton on the Hill
Monday, November 13th, 2017, 7pm

Monthly Meeting of the Parish Council

View the meeting agenda:tbc

Want to turn over a new leaf?

 


There will be a church clear out on Saturday 11th November starting at 10.00am and finishing approx 13.00.

 

Notwithstanding the ubiquitous leaf raking we hope to continue the Ivy clearance on the walls, tidy a few more Yews, weed some flat graves and put up some more bird and bat boxes. We’re also hoping to prepare some wild flower beds.

 

Please bring leaf rakes, loppers, bags, secateurs, samurai swords, bazookas, combine harvesters and some warm clothing!

 

There might be some decent leaf mould from previous years so if you want some bring some fertiliser bags - you can have some at a snip at one english pound per bag.

 

By then we should hopefully know if we have received an award from the Churchyard Conservation Scheme as the ceremony is on November 1st.

 

See you then.
