The Big Dig has started

posted 8 Sep 2011, 10:32 by Lynn Miller

This week saw the start of the Back Garden digs with so far 4 gardens being offered. Many finds have been made and with all the finds now on their way to the offices for cataloging the team are having a break tomorrow to catch up and prepare for next weeks digs. 

Dr Richard Brunning has been very pleased with interest shown in the village and on more that one occasion we have found him scratching his  head in puzzlement, but given a few days we are all sure that he will be able to provide us with all the answers we need.

If you have seen the team wandering around the village this week and wondered what was going on, stop Richard and ask him they are very approachable or give him a call on

Coffee Morning

posted 16 May 2011, 07:23 by Lynn Miller   [ updated 10 May 2015, 05:12 ]

Dick Brewer would like to thank all those who came along to the coffee morning on June 4th.  Dick has just telephoned to announce that the coffee morning made in excess of £1,400. 

On a personal note I should say a huge thank you to Dick and his family and friends who work so hard to make the annual event so successful, and I am sure that Dick would like us all to remember those who are touched by S.U.R.E.

 Please note the Annual General Meeting for Lyng Parish Council will be held on Monday 16th May 2011 at 7.30pm in the Village Hall.

The reason that this meeting cannot be held at the same time as the Annual Parish meeting this year is because there have been District and Parish elections on the 5th May and 3 working days have to pass before new office holders can be elected.


Royal Wedding Celebrations

posted 30 Apr 2011, 12:51 by Lynn Miller   [ updated 9 May 2011, 14:06 ]

As April 29th approached the village all pulled together to create a celebratory day to be remembered.

The Saturday morning bunting making sessions were finished and what seemed to be miles and miles of bunting had been sewn.  Including some late nights. Thanks to all who contributed with material, marking out skills, cutting skills,sorting skills and pinning and sewing skills,  (and the tea and coffee making) who would have thought that making bunting would be so involved.  A special thanks to Ann who researched and coordinated the project .

The Saturday before the Royal Wedding an assembly of villagers took place and each group took a house and got to work to decorate.  Many thanks to all who helped in this task and risked their lives against the incessent traffic which only occassionally slowed down and acknowledged our efforts, special thanks to Ali for orgainsing, Jen, Linda, Lin and Jason and anyone else that I have forgotten to mention.

It was agreed that the gazebo would be erected on Thursday evening and we hoped for eight to turn up to help with the smooth installation of the gazebo.  Too many to offer thanks but those that I recall were Gerry, Jason, Julie, Sue, Mark, Jen many apologises to those who I couldn't remember the names of, and to Jennifer for her organisational skills, hope the shoulder is improving and of course to Paul and Shirley.

The day of the Wedding dawned bright and dry and we all breathed a huge sigh of relief.

The Rose and Crown opened at the allotted time and those waiting on the doorstep were welcomed by Paul and Shirley.  The bar had been transformed into a comfortable seating area and a large tv screen had been erected to enable all toshare in the special moments of the happy couple.  All dressed in finery then settled down to watch this special event. Lots of OOOOh's and Ahhh's later (and a couple of pints for some) the deed had been done and we all partook of the impressive wedding cake baked and expertly iced by Shirley's mum ( well done mum!) and toasted the happy couple with a glass of champagne.  It was lovely to see so many in the bar, I certainly shall not forget where I was when they tied the knot.

More to follow.... keep checking back

Great fun was had at the village hall on all hallows eve this year.  The mum's and dad's of the village all helped to give the local children an evening they would remember for all the right reasons.  Apple bobbing and doughnut chomping were the order of the day.
