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??

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.

What's On The Hill

January 2017

Can you spare 10 minutes?


Easton on the Hill Parish Council owns and operates two mobile Vehicle Activation Signs (VAS) which help reduce vehicle speeds and improve the safety of our roads.

These devices require battery changes every two weeks. The Parish Council is seeking volunteers to help with this task. It takes about 10 minutes per VAS but the volunteers assisting with this will need a ladder and the batteries to take and charge for 24 hrs prior. Please contact the clerk if you are available to be added to a rota.


Thank you

GALA planning



It’s time to start planning the 2018 Easton Gala, due to be held, as usual, over the late May Bank Holiday weekend, Friday 25th to Monday 28th May.


Last year’s events were a great success and we’re looking to keep this great village tradition going and at the same time keep it fresh and inviting.


We start the planning in January and invite representatives of all interested village organisations and anyone who can help in the planning and organising to attend the first planning meeting on Monday Jan 15th at 7.00pm in the Blue Bell.


We’re particularly interested to see some new volunteers this year and to appoint a new co-ordinator for the whole event. I’ll chair the first meeting but not necessarily all of them!


If anyone would like to discuss what’s involved in co-ordinating the gala, by all means drop me a line or give me a call. A full briefing is available!
