Annual Parish Meeting – Wednesday 27th April 2022

It gives me great pleasure to invite you all to join the Annual Parish Meeting, scheduled for Wednesday 27th April at the village hall commencing at 7.30pm. 

This will be the first Annual meeting that has been allowed since Covid19 and the Parish Council are keen to hear your views / reports on how your group / organisation has managed through the pandemic and if your group / organisation has any ideas on where the parish council should be spending any CIL (Community Infrastructure Levy) money we receive and update the Parish Infrastructure Investment Plan (PIIP).

Light refreshments will be provided and it would be lovely to see as many of our village organisations and groups represented.

Kindest regards – Karen

Flower Festival and Art Exhibition 18th and 19th June, 2022

 We are holding our biennial Flower Festival and Art Exhibition in St Mary’s Church, Old Newton and the Village School over the weekend of the 18th and 19th June.  We should be very grateful if you would publicise the Festival to members of the Parish Council. We hope that many villagers will wish to be involved in what is always an enjoyable village event.

 This year’s theme for the floral arrangements is ‘Poetry in Flowers’. Should any of your members wish to create a floral display in the church, we’d love to hear from them. Louise Harbidge is organising this aspect of the Festival and can be contacted on 07768 505940 or theharbidges@aol.com

 Also, if any members would  like to participate in the Art Exhibition, please contact me on 07969 182079 or familybrooks@btinternet.com

 The Festival is raising funds for the general upkeep of St Mary’s Church which plays an important role in the life of the village
