Annual Parish Meeting - 28th April 2015, 7:00pm - Village Hall
The Parish Council is to try a new approach this year to get villagers to come along to the Parish Meeting. The evening is to follow a “Question Time” format providing everyone with the opportunity to ask about anything they like. Refreshments will be available and everyone is welcome. More details next month.
May Day Event - Monday, May 4th 2015 - 12:00 o’clock start, Stafford Orchard
The Village Events Group (VEG) will be organising May Day celebrations on Stafford Orchard again this year. There will be plenty of exciting new attractions including a climbing wall for the children.
There are still opportunities for volunteers to help run the community library at Rawlins. Training will be provided by the County Council along and funding and on-going support. The village has also been given a Partnership Manager to help smooth the transition to a community run facility. If you would like to get involved in keeping the library open, please contact the Parish Clerk.
If you are concerned that you don’t have a say about what happens in your village when it comes to new development, please volunteer to help to put together a Neighbourhood Plan. If the village has a plan it will give it a way to dictate where any new development goes in the future. Please contact the Parish Clerk for more details.
Elections in May 2015
If you would like to help serve your community and have an interest in village life, why not think about standing to be a Parish Councillor? There are no particular qualifications necessary, just a willingness to get involved and a desire to make a difference. There will be more news coming from the Borough Council soon to explain what is involved. Keep an eye on the village notice boards and the Quorndon website.
Quorn Old School
The Old School Trust has submitted a bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund to fund the restoration of the Old School building into a Heritage Centre. News should arrive in March 2015 about whether the bid has been successful. If you have an interest in local heritage and would like to get involved in the project, please contact the Parish Clerk.
The Parish Council has found that even the most responsible of owners are sometimes caught out by not paying enough attention to their dogs. Can I please ask that owners keep a watchful eye on their dogs when they are off lead and especially when in the park where the children play.
Did you know that you are able to advertise your event on the village website free of charge. Just go to www.quorndon.com/events/. Listing your event there will also get it on the Parish Council’s noticeboard where the calendar is displayed.
