Photographic Year 2015 – register your interest now

The Parish Council would like to make 2015 a year that we take a photographic record of Holcot, its people, events and landscapes. This is an opportunity for villagers to enjoy taking photos and establishing a story of Holcot in a single year.

The Parish Council will plan the proposed approach to this initiative over the next couple of months, but are asking for you to register your interest in participating now - this might be in taking shots, editing, collating and coordinating roles.

Please email David Walker – holcotdw{at} – to register your interest or ‘leave a reply’ below (if appropriate, noting any specific roles that you might like to take). Ideas that you have as to how we might undertake a Photographic Year would also be gratefully received!

Road safety – Back Lane

cropped-playground.jpgYou may have seen a new road sign in Back Lane prompting drivers about the playing field and children playing. Residents have been working with the County Council to consider ways of slowing down the traffic in Back Lane, particularly at peak hours where it is used as a means of avoiding the crossroads.

Some drivers using Back Lane travel at excessive speeds without regard for the risks – which include children playing in the road, the proximity to users of the Village Hall and the playing field, as well as the nature of residents houses being close to the lane.

The road sign is the first evidence of the action being taken.


Lesley Pomeroy is hoping to set up a group of volunteers who would be happy to help out their neighbours with small but useful tasks like collecting medicines, lifts to the doctor, occasional shopping or just popping in to see if all is well especially in bad weather. If enough people are interested we could meet and decide what we need to do to set it up. If you think you could be a part of this contact Lesley on 781246 or mrspom{at}
