Parish Plan 2012
26th May 2012
some of the "good peeps" who helped
The steering group organised a litter pick event, inviting everyone to meet on the village green and to give an hour or so to help out. The turnout was very good and with some bags, pickers and gloves we got to work. In total we wombled 12 bags of rubbish....so to all those who left their sun lounger for a while - a big thank you!!!
THE BELLS !!
Over the past few weeks three volunteers from the village have given up their time to practice the art of bell ringing, with instruction from ringers in Hinstock they have been attending the church in Hinstock once a week for an hour or so to learn the art of campanology - it has been deemed, safe for our ears. So.. coming soon (all being well) the sound of the church bells should once again be heard in Childs Ercall.
If you are interested in having a go, the group are looking to make up a rota for this, to add cover for holidays ect. send us an e.mail or just follow the bells !!!
Saturday 20th October 2012
In response to the questionnaire, many people were fairly unanimous in the desire to see a more "cared for" appearance in the village.
On the 20th October people turned up with spades, bulbs, wellies etc and got stuck in. The Steering Group had purchased over 2000 bulbs (daffs and crocus), bought with money raised at other community events and with the weather on our side, in about an hour and a half we had completed our mission! and planted up the village Green.
all that was left to do was -
tea and cake and to say....
Thanks to every one who came along and gave their time to help improve the look of our village. The plan for the future is to annually increase the amount of bulbs around the village, but for 2012 this is a great start.
