Prickwillow Village Newsletter

JUNE 2021

DATE FOR YOUR DIARY

Prickwillow Village Council are looking to celebrate some sort of a return to normality and a chance to catch up with some of your neighbours by holding a Picnic-in-the-Park on August 29. More details to follow.

PRICKWILLOW VILLAGE HALL

The Village Hall Annual General Meeting will be held at the hall on Thursday 24th June at 7.30pm.  

We are keen to attract more committee members to support the running of this key village asset – please come along if you can help or call Janet on 01353 688472.

DRAINAGE ENGINE MUSEUM

The Museum will be open again to visitors on May 30 and 31, from 12.00 to 16.00.

We will also be open on the following dates in June:

Sunday 06 and Monday 07
Sunday 13 and Monday 14
Sunday 20 and Monday 21
Sunday 27 and Monday 28

The museum trustees and volunteers have worked hard to install the required extra procedures due to Covid regulations, and as a result we have been awarded Visit England’s ‘Good to Go’.

Please come and see us, wearing a face covering (unless medically exempt).

PHONEBOX GALLERY

A seed/plant swap is operating during June; you are encouraged to leave ‘spare’ plants or seeds and take another to replace it. Houseplants are also welcome.

Coralyn is also trying to get packs of wildflower seeds for each household so we can “rewild” Prickwillow. Any bit of ground can be lightly raked and wildflowers grown.

To exhibit your work in the Phonebox please contact Coralyn via facebook or email coralyn.hobbs@sky.com or 07495954858.

CLEANER WANTED FOR VILLAGE HALL

One thorough clean per week to maintain our lovely Village Hall for local groups and bookings. Self-employed contract basis, all materials supplied.

Contact Janet on 01353 688472 for more information.
