The recent drier weather has enabled the levelling and drainage ground works to progress. The drainage system has now been installed and the level area is complete except for the upper North West corner where it is still too wet to locate earth moving tractors. The embankments will be prepared and seeded next week, followed by the level area as soon as it is possible. We hope to have it all fully seeded by the end of April.
The Playground proposals and budgets have been finalized and we are hearing positive vibes with regards to the applications for Lottery and Jean Burrows funding.
A COMMUNITY BUS FOR TICKENHAM ?
Each year suggestions are invited from Tickenham residents for a project which would be of benefit to the whole village and which might be funded initially by the Jean Burrows Fund. This year an idea has been put forward for a community mini-bus. The bus could be available for individuals or organisations to hire, with an approved driver, for such things as visits, outings, theatre trips, shopping, even going to the airport – the choice is yours.
So far a small group has considered the idea but we need more information and the purpose of this questionnaire is to find out the likely support. It’s no good having a mini-bus if nobody wants to use it!! There’s obviously a lot to think about, so in order for the Parish Council to consider the proposal in more detail, we would be grateful if you would let us have your thoughts, e.g. would you support the idea in principle, would you use the bus and how often, could you help with the planning and/or be involved in running a scheme? Please respond to Vena at as soon as possible. Thank you.
Tickenham Village Field committee will be presenting another excellent and exciting evening of on-screen Horse Racing. All takings will be going towards the on-going development of the Village Field.
A VILLAGE EVENT FOR ALL
The village school would love to welcome new faces to our monthly market which is held in our village hall , school parents kindly run this voluntary event , We would love to see past pupils, parents and local villagers who like to support the village in fund raising. All money that is raised benefits every child in Tickenham School making such a difference to special day trips and treats for the pupils.
We have a wide selection of local fresh goods and gifts on offer. Refreshments and food available in the morning making it a treat to eat out on a Saturday morning whilst helping the local school.
Please support this in the village and come along we would love to see you all.
Two fantastic fund raising evenings have recently been held. A huge thank you is due to the team who gave up their weekends to shop, chop, prepare, cook and serve two bountiful suppers.
