The Parish Council has arranged a litter pick on Sunday 6 October at 11am. Equipment will be provided by DDC.

Please put it in your diaries and come along for an hour or so – we’ll have plenty of child-friendly picking too so it really is something for all the family.

16329267756 08862be84c z

Parishioners will know that a group of volunteers do all of those jobs that help the village look in great condition. They call themselves the Friends of Holcot.

The Friends meet approximately fortnightly on Friday mornings for an hour or two. They’re seeking new group members.

They are a friendly social group, and there are no commitment or skill requirements – just a willingness to come along when you can and help.

This Friday (21 June) they are meeting in the playing field to tackle an overgrown holly bush (tree!) at 10am – please come along if you can (bring gloves and any relevant tools you might have), or email Roger Gunnett ( and he will add you to the email circulation list.

After comments by Parishioners, the Parish Council ask that if you put posters on posts or notice boards that you remove them after your event.

Similarly, if you see posters from outside the Parish, please remove them once they are no longer relevant.

Thank you.
