BIG LITTER PICK WEEK

 

We would like to thank John Fisher and Eileen Smith for their sterling effort litter picking round the village, Stoke Lane and Manor Lane during litter picking week.

 

 

 

 

HALLOWEEN

 

What a great response to the Pumpkin trail round the village.  This is something that I think will bring a little normality to Halloween this year.  In order to keep track on those wishing to take place, please can you confirm your house name/number (possibly street name too) to the following email address shelfordpumpkins@gmail.com.

Once I have collected all addresses, I can then email you the trail list back for your little ones to have.  I would suggest that the cut-off date, so I can finish the sheet, would be 29th October.  All those participating need to do is leave a pumpkin(s) or decorate your garden, and if you wish, to leave a bowl of sweets for those to help themselves.  Another suggestion is that for safety, parents of those whose children are taking place can provide their own children with sweets, that when they find a pumpkin then they reward the children by putting a sweet into their bag.

 

Finally, please remember on the night to stick to the social distancing rules and use sanitizer before and after collecting sweets from anyone else's bowl.

 

Thank you so much!

BONFIRE NIGHT AND FIREWORKS CELEBRATIONS

 

Due to most formal events not taking place this year, there may be an increase in private celebrations.  With this in mind, please be aware many dogs, cats, horses etc are frightened by the noise associated with fireworks.  If you are planning to have a bonfire and fireworks, please let you neighbours know in order that they can protect their pets.  Thank you.

 

 

 

CORRECTION TO PREVIOUS EDITION OF NEWSLETTER

In the item submitted by Mr Roger Cook in the April edition, there was an error in the wording.  It should have said that he was walking up Manor Lane, not Water Lane.  Apologies for the error.

 

 

MICK UNWIN

 

Sadly, on Friday 1st May, we learnt that Mick Unwin had passed away following a long illness.

 

Over the years Mick had played a huge part in our community serving as Chairman of the Parish Council, being an integral part of the Shelford Feast committee, organising the very successful bi-annual Street Market, and generally giving his heart and soul for the good of the village.

 

I’m sure you will all join in sending our condolences to Angela and their family, and giving our thanks for the impact Mick had on ourselves and our village.
