Since we erected a new flag pole some two years ago the Committee of the Community Association have been conscious that the area around the pole needed a “makeover”. The initiative was seized by Linda and Tony Hickman and a proposal was prepared for the area to be cleared and prepared for a bed of chippings to be laid. A submission was made to Helping Hands for a grant and we were delighted that our proposal was approved.
For those of you who are unaware Helping Hands is a charity shop situated in High Street and as funds allow are happy to consider making grants to local organisations. If you know of any group who is need of funds please call in and see Julie Collins, who is the Manager of the shop which is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10am until 4pm.
The shop is always looking for good quality items to sell in the shop so if anyone can help in that way Julie would be delighted to accept the items.
