Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

In 2022, Her Majesty The Queen will celebrate her Platinum Jubilee, seventy years after having acceded to the throne on 6th February 1952 when Her Majesty was 25 years old.

An extended bank holiday, from Thursday 2nd to Sunday 5th June, will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom to come together to celebrate this historic milestone.

The parish council would like to encourage people to give some ideas and suggestions as to how we can celebrate this momentous occasion in our village.

The National events include Trooping of the Colour and Beacon lighting (Thursday 2 June); a Service of Thanksgiving in St Paul’s Cathedral (Friday 3 June); Platinum Party at the Palace - The BBC will stage and broadcast a special live concert from Buckingham Palace (Saturday 4 June); The Big Jubilee Lunch (Sunday 5 June)

You can email any suggestions to us (see Contact page) or contact any councillor direct. You may even feel that a dedicated group should meet and decide the way forward. We are open to ANY suggestions.

Please support us for this historic occasion!

Vaccination Brief from Team Communications

This briefing is designed to keep you up to date with the roll-out of the Covid-19 vaccine in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
As you will all know the vaccine is administered across three different types of site: Hospital Hubs, Local Vaccination Services and large Vaccination Centres.

Give a Laptop Appeal

Last summer local BBC radio stations helped members of the public donate thousands of old laptops and tablets for schoolchildren to use across England. For those pupils, who were sharing phones at home while learning in lockdown, it made a huge difference.

There are lots of pupils that still require some help. If you have any spare laptops or tablets, please look at the following to see where items can be donated

 

Some charities can collect, wipe and share the laptops all in one; some can help take your devices off your hands to fix them ready for distribution; some are collecting donations to help fund devices for pupils; some are local to specific areas and some are nationwide, both across England and the UK.

If you would prefer to donate direct to a school, a list of Nottinghamshire schools can be found here

If you contact them direct, they may have someone working there that can wipe your item clean.
