Diary Date - May Day Celebrations - Monday 5th May 2014 - Stafford Orchard - 12:00 noon
The Village Events Group is to organise a bumper event this year with a Punch and Judy show, Small Pets Competition, Dog Show, Duck Race, Fairground Rides as well as entertainment on the Performance Area and a choice of refreshments. It will also be working with the Old School Trust to make this May Day an opportunity for villagers who voted to save the Old School back in 2008 to take a look around the building. Newcomers will also be welcomed and anyone who would like to see what is planned for the future. There’s going to be a Grand Hopscotch Competition in the playground just like there used to be 100 years ago and a chance for children to dance around the maypole or have a go at Morris Dancing. We’ll be giving prizes for the best dressed dancer or hopscotcher dressed in 1914 costume.

Plant a Poppy for the 100th Anniversary of the Beginning of World War One
Poppy seed is now available free of charge at the Parish Office for planting throughout the village. You can scatter seed on any lightly raked soil from April to June and, as long as you don’t allow the area to dry out, you should see seedlings start to appear within 10 days. If you’d like a succession of poppies, sow seed at intervals until June. Call in and collect some seed from the Parish Council between 10am and 1pm or watch out for more free packets at Bradleys……….. they’re on the way.
Short stay parking - Station Road Car Park
Borough Councillor David Slater informed the last meeting of the Parish Council that work is about to begin on the short-stay parking spaces on the Station Road Car Park. The spaces will run along the Station Road frontage and will be monitored by the Borough Council’s traffic wardens. The measure will discourage all day parking there and freeing up spaces for shoppers and visitors to the doctors.
If you have any queries about any of the above items, please contact Christina, our Parish Clerk.
