What's On

The Hill

New village email newsletter service launches.

An occasional informal village email of forthcoming events for your entertainment and information, has been organised by Tim Nicol. It is currently sent directly to about 80 email addresses that have subscribed to the service.

The idea is to extend the reach of the email to as many villagers as possible, so that all village events are well supported. If you are not signed up as yet, you can use the 'subscribe' feature, as shown below. It’s very easy to use.

It would also be very neighbourly if you would inform close neighbours without email of what's going on, maybe by printing a couple of copies of the email, and dropping them through their letterbox?

This is all in no way intended to replace the excellent "News and Views", which we hear from Felicity is still going strong, and will no doubt, complement the Village Website, and hopefully keep villagers up to date on various events across the village. So why not sign up today??

Suggestions collected by the first Friday in the month will feature in the following PC meeting, be discussed, actioned and the outcome will be published online, in WOTH and N&V.

Village Survey

We ran a survey of the whole village in September to get as many opinions and views as possible to help the Parish Council and the Hub Management Team plan for the future. We had a great response- over 40% of households completed the questionnaire. The results are available to view [Here]

Churchyard Extension Development Update
 
The Friends of the Church group is working on a plan to develop the new Churchyard extension area to include a “Peace Labyrinth” as a central feature. The plans, which have been shared with the village, the PCC, and with the Diocesan Advisory Committee (DAC), have been developed with lots of help from skilled villagers like Ken Rawson and Butch Baker, and the whole project is being very ably co-ordinated by Pat Firth with help from Robert Woodfield and myself.
 
In the run-up to Christmas we had a very encouraging meeting with the DAC and have put together two substantial applications for Grant funding from the Augean (Landfill) Fund and the East Northants Communities Fund. We have had help from volunteers at CIPS, who are taking a real interest in the project and providing some very useful advice and meeting facilities, and Stamford College have also offered to help with construction and general volunteering.
 
We now wait to hear if our applications have been successful.

A PLEA TO THE CANINE OWNING COMMUNITY


New dog fouling signs have been erected around the village in the last week and it has been noted that some have already been removed from their positions. It is imperative that dog owners clear up after their dogs for the benefit of all, particularly for families with small children. It has also been reported that some aggressive dogs are being allowed to free-run in areas where dogs are regularly walked. If anyone owns a dog that is intolerant to other dogs or aggressive in any way, we ask you to be a responsible owner and that you keep them on a lead when walking. The local dog warden will be alerted to dogs and their owners who appear to pose a risk to others.

TourdeSands 2017:

E2E Ride

                           

This is a charity bike ride from Easton on the Hill, through all of France and Spain until they reach Elviria, which is 8kms east of Marbella. Hence the name, "E2E".

 

In total, this is a leisurely 1600 miles. However, they are not doing this over a long weekend. It will take a month. That's around 30 days, averaging approximately 50 miles a day.

They will be joined along the way by friends old and new, who will choose which "Stage" of the ride they want to ride.


You can download the day-to-day schedule here.



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

Save

Easton Garford School



Stop the closure of Easton Garford School


Peterborough Diocese Educational Trust (PDET) have just informed us that they want to close our village school. This has just been communicated a number of weeks before the end of term. Their proposal is to bus our little ones to the other side of Stamford!


Many villagers will have seen the story in today's Mercury about the future of the School. There is also an active Facebook group, started by Ian Scrivens, called "Save Easton Garford School".


If you wish to join the campaign and sign the petition, here are the details:
