The Group will meet on Wednesday, June 28 at 7.30pm in the Windmill Inn. Parishioners are welcome to come and comment. The Plan will soon be put out for a six week public consultation when all interested parties will be able to formally comment and make representations, which must be considered when finalising the plan for submission to DDC.
The Plan needs to include photos representing the landscape of the Parish that should be protected. Please take time to have a look at the website: https://badbyvillage.com/neighbourhoodplan/have-your-say/and select six photographs showing Badby in its setting or make any other suggestions you may have on this topic in the reply box on the website by Friday, June 30.
Badby School will hold the traditional Rose Day on Saturday, June 24 from 1-4pm.
Sue Blundell and her family are walking the London Shine Night Walk Half Marathon over the night of Saturday, September 23-24 to raise money for Cancer Research.
You can help by donating and sharing a slice of cake and a cuppa with them at Badby Village Hall on Saturday, July 1, from 11am until 3pm.
Donations can also be made now, directly, at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/teamrackpack2017
It’s not often that material for replacement bell stays falls into a churchyard!
Geoff Pullin was amazed to find a whole ash tree had fallen in the gales on Tuesday June 6 and Paul Green has kindly donated straight pieces for use for future stays! The tree fell such that it did no harm to the house, churchyard, church or tombstones thanks to the gusty wind coming from the north. Its companion tree was also felled on June 8.
The next meeting will be taking place on Monday 12th June at 7.30pm in the village hall. Documents required for the meeting are the agenda, the draft minutes from June and a finance background paper.
On Wednesday evening (June 7), Kilsby Guides visited our church tower. From 6.30pm there were the sounds of young voices emanating from the louvres and later on, the sounds of random chiming of the bells by the Guides, prior to normal practice from 7.30pm onwards.
A reminder that the WI is moving to St Mary’s Church by kind permission of the Revd. Sue Faulkner on Thursday, June 8 because the village hall is in use as a polling station.
From 7.30pm, a fashion show of delightful clothes, to suit all, supplied by Wanda Fashions of Dunchurch.
New members and visitors are welcome.
