The Parish Council has been the Sole Trustee of the Millennium Green since May 2012 and is assisted in the day to day running by a Management Group. The 3 officers of that group namely Chair, Secretary and Treasurer have stood down at the AGM held last Monday and no nominations were received from the floor of the meeting. In order to help the Trustee make an informed decision on the future management of the Green if there are any volunteers to take on one of these roles could you please inform the Parish Clerk by Fri 4th August.
For further information please contact Di Hassan on 01934 876454 or Liz Greaves on 01934 838802.
Members of the Neighbourhood Watch scheme are invited to contact the Avon and Somerset Neighbourhood Watch Association and start the discussion around the fantastic opportunities they could bring to further develop the partnership between local policing teams and NHW.
Villagers had a choice of two coffee mornings early in the month, on a perfect summer Saturday.
There was a steady stream of visitors, volunteers and officials for the coffee morning launch of the community library, the first in North Somerset. Delicious home-made cakes were a popular attraction, and a range of books for sale attracted many bookworms. Library organiser Diana Hassan was officially handed the key to the premises by Andy Brisley, head of North Somerset Library Service. Also present was Mandy Bishop from North Somerset Services. The library will continue to operate on the previous opening hours, but the premises are available to local groups to hire.
Relaxing in the extensive, beautifully maintained, gardens in Paul’s Causeway, over 30 members of Congresbury Horticultural Society and friends were welcomed by hosts, David and Ann Anderson, to their coffee morning. As David is well known for his roses, which frequently grace the Flower Shows and always win prizes, there was plenty to admire among the sweeping lawns and quirky features, including hares, duck and duckling and the Mad Hatter. President Ann Gunner thanked them for a delightful morning.
