Both a warning and a request please…. The local police have visited St Mary’s and made several recommendations on how we try to deal with the repeated damage occurring there… and you may also be aware that the Cricket Pitch hand-roller recently ended up in the Hall Spring Dyke that runs between the cricket pitch and St Mary’s. As part of suggestions to discourage damage both footfall at St Mary’s and taking a photo of, or just noting any suspicious vehicles (number / make /colour) or obviously out-of-place visitors would be welcomed… anything that can reasonably be done to link damage to people/vehicles. Trying to ensure that opportunities for vandalism are reduced by our own community action is most welcome, although carries the usual message of please not putting yourself at risk in doing so.


Regrettably the past week has also seen a spread in anti-social actions down into the village too…. A horse box trailer has been stolen from the village and last night (Wednesday night) there was an attempted horse-theft from the centre of the village, although by report the horse thankfully won the struggle and remains local… and it’s also not that long since a village lock-up was broken into as well. Again, the same request please, if you see obviously suspicious activity and/or vehicles please flag it up to the police via 101, or if it’s happening right in  front of you clearly 999 is appropriate.


The more we can do to “have a presence” around the village the more chance there is of persuading “The Unwelcome” to desist or stay away!


Many thanks, and stay safe,

The Royal British Legion's 100th Anniversary 2021

posted 29 Apr 2021, 11:01 by Peter Cadwallader

On Saturday 15th May 2021, the Royal British Legion will be marking its centenary year and we hope you will join us in celebrating this exciting milestone.

Throughout our history, the work of the Royal British Legion has left a deep-rooted legacy for generations to come and we remain dedicated to our mission of creating better futures for all those who have served and continue to serve with the British Armed Forces.​ 

The Royal British Legion was formed in the aftermath of the First World War to fight for the rights of those who had given so much and who came back to so little. Today, we continue to stand with the Armed Forces community and challenge injustices to ensure all those who have served and sacrificed on our behalf get the fair treatment and recognition they deserve.​ 

As we reflect on our achievements over the last 100 years, we know they are not ours alone. The Royal British Legion has always been supported by an extensive network of volunteers, members, fundraisers and partner organisations who share our passion for bringing people together to support, commemorate and celebrate our Armed Forces community.​  An enormous amount of hours have been spent over many, many years with volunteers helping to collect during Remembrance and for our annual Poppy Appeal.  We would like to pay our sincere gratitude to every single person who has sold or bought a Poppy or contributed towards the Appeal over the years.  Without their support, we would not be reaching our milestone this year.

Throughout the decades, the Royal British Legion has evolved and adapted, responding to the changing needs of the Armed Forces Community and reflecting the modern-day society in which we play an important role. As we face our next chapter, we are inviting a new generation to be part of our future and continue our vital work.


For any enquiries about the Royal British Legion such as volunteering and fundraising or if anyone would like to do an activity to mark our centenary, please do get in touch with Mark Smith at msmith1@britishlegion.org.uk or call 07920 378588.

Further information regarding the availability of Lamp Post Poppies will be sent out shortly.

 Many Regards

WEEE-cycle this Christmas

image of fairy lights

Have your fairy lights lost their twinkle?

If you're getting the Christmas decorations ready for going up and discovered that the lights are more faulty than fairy remember to take them to your local recycling centre rather than putting them in the kerbside bins at home folks.

Don't forget you can recycle broken electrical or old electronic items you no longer need at our recycling centres too, from electric toothbrushes, old hairdryers, kettles to phone chargers. These products all contain valuable components that can be reused and/or recycled so keep them out of the bin!

Did you know?

Image of recycling bin

Powered by nappies?!

In Nottinghamshire after your rubbish bin is emptied by your local Borough and District Council, the waste is taken to an Energy Recovery Facility (ERF) and used to make renewable energy...

...Which is pretty awesome and helps us to create more sustainable energy!

What happens to my waste and recycling?

Try something different with your leftovers

Buying only what we need and using up all of what we buy is a great way to keep food out of the bin and reduce food waste.

Similarly if you have been able to grow your own fruit and vegetables, ensure you freeze, swap or donate any surplus.

Whilst making bubble and squeak is always a good option, leftovers don’t have to be dull. We've got lots of yummy seasonal recipes to help you use up those leftovers!

Be a freezer hero

Image of person with open freezer

Using your freezer is a great way to minimise the number of shopping trips you have to make. It’s also a fantastic way to extend the life of a whole range of foods that might otherwise go to waste.

We all know that meat, pizza and ice cream can be frozen, but there may be a few foods that might surprise you! Eggs, milk, bread, even cheese – in fact, almost anything can be frozen.

Don’t forget to label and date whatever you freeze to avoid any unidentified frozen objects.

Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme

posted 30 Nov 2020, 02:01 by Peter Cadwallader

Nottinghamshire County Council have invested £750,000 in order to help deliver high-speed broadband to the most rural parts of the county. The £750,000 investment is to support the government’s ‘Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme’ which delivers subsidy to rural homes and businesses without access to high-speed broadband to help deploy a full-fibre network. Under the scheme residential premises are eligible for up to £1,500 and small and medium sized businesses are eligible for up to £3,500 through a registered supplier when part of a group scheme. The Notts top-up doubles the value of the voucher, meaning rural residential premises are eligible for up to £3,000, and small and medium sized rural business are eligible for up to £7,000. For further details on the scheme and to see if your property is eligible please visit www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/top-up or contact the team at enquiries.broadband@nottscc.gov.uk
