Thank you…

It’s the end of another very hot, sunny and successful Wakes. We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. We really want to keep these events going and we can’t do it without you so a big THANK YOU from the Carnival and Recreation Committee to everyone who helped out and joined in. Especially those who gave up so much of their spare time to keep everything going – you know who you are.

If you have any suggestions for next Wakes or a village event please get in touch with us at lucywigley@googlemail.com. We would also really like new members to join our small Committee so if you are interested just drop me an email or have a chat with one of the Committee members.

Here’s till next time…..

We just don’t know… but every second counts.

It’s great to see so many people enjoying Wakes tonight, but please spare a thought for anyone requiring urgent assistance.
It was difficult for me to drive through the many parked cars tonight due to inconsiderate parking.
An ambulance would struggle and a fire engine could not get through.
This made me think tonight as I was due to join Sue responding for the ambulance service.
Please consider parking when publicising or arranging any large scale events.
Thank you
Helen P

Subject to final approval at the next Parish Council meeting the Village Bonfire and fireworks will take place on Parson’s Croft on Sunday 5th November from 6pm.

There will be a bonfire, best guy competition (£5 prize), fireworks, raffle and refreshments.

Due to insurance costs and health and safety requirements we will be holding a raffle and have donation tins located around the site; please donate so we can continue to provide these events in the village. Please note that our insurance states that people must not bring their own fireworks to the site, this includes sparklers.

The bonfire site is the same as last year and is clearly visible so please bring along any dry wood, logs or dead branches but DO NOT bring anything with metal and nails such as mattresses, pallets or sofas.

Thank you and see you there!

Any questions please email Lucy at lucywigley@googlemail.com

Wakes over for another year…

As Wakes week draws to a close for yet another year the Carnival and Recreation Committee would like to give a massive thanks to YOU for attending and supporting our events. It has been an absolutely cracking Wakes (helped by the gorgeous weather) and we couldn’t do it without support from the Sycamore, Legion, Odd Fellows, fair, Notts DA and those unsung heroes (you know who you are) who do all the little jobs behind the scenes such as keeping our lovely village clean and tidy. We love you all for it and without it we couldn’t keep the events going.

See you all next year – now for the detox (after the glass of rose i’m just drinking!)
