HANNINGTON HERITAGE GROUP

“Away with the fairies"

talk by Kevin Varty at the Village Hall on Wednesday 18th September at 7:00pm. 

In 1917, at the height of the Great War, two girls from Cottingley in Yorkshire took photographs of fairies. These photos came to light in the 1920’s and caused a sensation. This is the story:

We welcome Kevin Varty back to the village to present his enigmatically titled talk.  Non-members welcome for a nominal entrance donation of £3.00. Refreshments provided.

Further date for your diary is Talk by Derek Blunt, “County of Squires and Spires” November 6th, at 7:00pm.  All welcome and entrance donations will be forwarded by Derek to the Air Ambulance Service. 

Further information: - contact Fiona Smith 01604 781332

WHALEBONE "TOTALLY PLUCKED"

Tickets are available for Whalebone on Saturday October 26th at 7 30pm.

Steve and Char, the amazing guitarists from Whalebone, are back to give another evening of brilliantly played original pieces as well as many cleverly arranged covers of rock and pop classics.

Phone Chris on 781850 for tickets. Leave a message if she's out saying how many you would like and your address and she'll put them through your door.

DOG FOULING

Regrettably, it has been brought to the Parish Council’s attention, yet again, that some irresponsible dog owner is not cleaning up the mess left by their pet.  In particular, on the main footpath through the village, around the area of Main Street/Red House Lane and down Orchard Close. There is no excuse for this behaviour so PLEASE, PLEASE clean up after your pet as we are sure you would not appreciate this left outside your own doorstep.  Many thanks for your assistance in this matter.

 

ALLOTMENT VACANCY

There are currently three allotment spaces available for anyone interested. Price is £18 per year for Hannington village residents or £23 for those outside of the village, subject to a refundable £50 deposit. If you are interested, please contact Caroline Tel: 01604 781631

 

A GENTLE REMINDER TO ALL VILLAGERS, WHO HAVE PROPERTIES THAT ARE ADJACENT TO THE PAVEMENT/ROADS

Now that the schools have returned after the summer break, to enable the school children to walk safely to and from the bus stop, the Parish Council would like to take this opportunity to ask all villagers who have boundaries adjacent to, in particular Main Street and Walgrave Road that all overhanging vegetation is cut back.  This will enable pedestrians to walk safely on the footpaths rather than in the road.  Many thanks for your assistance in this matter.

 

 

 

 

FIREWORKS

Please, when intending letting off fireworks in your gardens at various times of the year, that you give consideration to neighbours who may have pets in your locality. Not all pets are tolerable of fireworks and it can cause problems short and long term, if they know in advance they can make preparations. Thank you.

 

. HANNINGTON VILLAGE HALL

The Village Hall is available to hire. .The charge is £6.50 per hour (subject to a minimum charge of £13.50).  For further details and bookings please contact Maureen Souter (781486).
