Holcot Parish Council has a vacancy for a Parish Councillor. The term is until elections are held in May 2021.
If you are interested in being a Parish Councillor for your community, please write a short statement of why you would like the role. Send your statement to Lisa (email@example.com). The Parish Council will make their co-option decision at their meeting on 20 July.
If you would like to understand more about the role of Parish Councillor, contact David Walker (781660) or any Parish Councillor.
On Monday evening the Parish Council decided that it is safe to reopen the playing field.
In line with the legislation, the play equipment, adult gym, table and seat cannot be used due to the risk of transmission of the coronavirus. Please supervise your children.
To ensure that this is apparent, all equipment has been dressed with ‘Caution’ tape. If the tape comes loose, please redress the equipment with the loose tape as best you are able. This will help us ensure that we can keep the playing field open. Councillor Buckle will check the tape occasionally.
You will notice that new goal posts have been installed (and monkey bars for later…). Thanks to everyone on the Friends of the Playing Field group that have led this project.
As it seems likely that the Holcot village hall will be operating in a socially distanced environment during and probably beyond October, making a packed quiz hall impossible, we have taken the sad decision to cancel our popular quiz night.
The previous Quiz nights held twice annually since October 2014 have raised £6,600 split approximately 50/50 between carefully selected charities and our lovely village hall, providing a fun night out for our quizzers.
We’ll quiz again (apologies to Vera Lynn) when conditions permit so please check this website and future editions of the Holcot Village Newsletter for announcements. Alternatively please contact us on 07808 721655 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
St Mary and All Saints Church are HOPING to hold their very popular Garage Sale on Saturday, 19th September. This is always a well supported event and we hope that as many people as possible will take part.
Please look out all your unwanted items, keep to one side and get ready for a good day!
The tennis court is now reopened but we stress that despite the Cricket Club being closed currently, it is still a place of work and is private land. Therefore Tennis Court users MUST wear gloves when opening any gate, latch or padlock.
Please adhere to the Government and LTA current guidelines. As ever, the cricket pavilion and grounds is still strictly out of bounds.
I thought that it would be interesting to collate photos of the pandemic and lockdown. If you want to take part just email a single photo to email@example.com . I’ll post them on the website for all to see.
I imagine a shot of your family, or animals, scenes, or anything generally fun or interesting. I’ll credit the photographer of course!
