Easton on the Hill

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??

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.

GALA WEEKEND IS COMING – HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

Can you spare a couple of hours on a Monday evening for the next Gala meeting? 
The biggest event in the village calendar, work is now underway in planning this year's Gala over the May Bank Holiday (25th-28th May).

It would be great if as many people as possible could get involved and support the event - it's a great way to meet fellow villagers and have some fun along the way!
The next and final meeting is on May 21st and starts at 7pm at the Blue Bell and everyone is very welcome.

Take part in 'Easton's Got Talent'

If you're thinking of taking part in 'Easton’s Got Talent' we’d like to help with your ideas for performances.

The general theme of the weekend is “Traditions” – a kind of “back to our roots” direction.

To that end we in EATS thought it would be good to theme the evening as an Old Time Music Hall - think the “Good Old Days” – with no prizes for guessing who the modern day version of Leonard Sachs (the compere) will be!!

There’s no reason why pretty much any act can’t be adapted to that format, but hopefully this will be a helpful stimulus for your creativity.
 
We hope as many groups and individuals as possible can put an act together and make this another truly memorable evening.

Here's the weekend timetable

Friday May 25th - Northern Soul with live band; all day beer festival (which actually opens Thursday 24th).
 
Saturday 26th - 2pm 20/20 cricket match; evening Easton's Got Talent and beer festival.

Sunday 27th - noon-10pm live music and beer festival.

Monday 28th - traditional family village fete - 11am  pet show; 12 noon fete opens including traditional stalls, children's games area, maypole dancing (2pm), new hobby horse jousting (3pm) and cash prize raffle draw. Beer festival and busking tent throughout.

Labyrinth & Peace Garden

 


 

 

We’re delighted to say that work on this major village project starts after Easter. If you go for a walk behind the Church you will soon see fencing going up and equipment and materials arriving.


Local company Messenger Construction are main contractors and local stonemason Butch Baker will be building the new north wall to enclose the area more attractively. Students from Stamford College will be lending a hand and the Friends of the Church group will be organising working parties to help with the more menial tasks. A focal sculpture by local artist Michael Moralee is in hand, and the Friends committee is busy sourcing materials, benches, and interpretation boards etc.


Work should be completed in early July, and the opening to the village will be on Sunday July 29th, with an afternoon tea party and Jazz band in a marquee on the Bowls Green.


More details to follow but for now, save the date, July 29th, 2.00pm Church Service, 3.00pm opening and tea party.
