The Parish Council would like to inform residents that a decision was taken at last Mondayâ€™s Council meeting to replace the white fence on Lyndon Green. I am sure you will have noticed that it was badly vandalised recently. In total 17 slats were broken or bent, just a week after 7 were replaced due to previous vandalism. This matter was reported to the police at the time and they are following up the matter.
Unfortunately, this does mean that your Council Tax money will have to be spent on a replacement playground fence. Whilst this is a necessary expenditure the fence and gate have cost several hundred pounds over the course of the last two yearsâ€™ due to mindless vandalism.
The Parish Council will endeavour to get this done as soon as is possible. However, funding will have to be sought to achieve what will hopefully be a vandal proof solution.
Can I suggest a wrought iron fence which would be more in keeping with the fence already around the war memorial and less obtrusive and more durable than white UPVC – many of us thought this an inappropriate choice of material for the fence when it was first put in, not least because it looked ghastly, and so it has proved to be.
A Hewlett Packard Photosmart C7180 All-in-One printer with duplex unit (allows printing on both sides of the paper). It can print photos, standard documents to A4, it is also a copier, a scanner (including film slides and negatives) and it has a fax capability. Some spare ink cartridges included as well as instruction manual and installation CD. The black cartridge has run out but you should be able to get one from Trusted PC Man or Disking. The printer is wi-fi connectable as well as USB and ethernet. The price is Â£20. Buyer to collect from Hindhead.
Well done. Sounds well dodgy. I hate looking bad not giving to charity etc. but charities really shouldn’t knock your door. Its just too impossible to know who they are and trust them. Nobody is going to check their badge for every detail and phone their head office while they stand there.
Might I suggest you also [...]
I’ve just had a visit from an extremely smiley and friendly girl supposedly collecting for the Red Cross. When I explained I did not give money to anyone at the door following a spate of ‘bogus’ collections she asked if she could come inside and use my toilet. I refused, despite feeling bad about it.
A subsequent [...]
Grayshott Folk Club broke new ground again on Saturday 14th July 2012 when BOF! were our invited performers.
Our Bastille Day Bash paid tribute to our French cousins across La Manche.
It was the first time we had featured French Folk Music, Song and Dance, Bagpipes and a Hurdy-Gurdy. We also had our youngest audience member who was about 4 months old or thereabouts. Start them young, I say!
Although we only had an
audience of 27, I believe those who did make the effort to come along were
attentive and appreciative of what was on offer. I very much enjoyed the music
and it demonstrated again just how broad a range of music we put on under the
umbrella of ”Folk” music.
think we are very fortunate in this area that we have so many
entertainment choices and opportunities available to us but it does make people
a little blase, so they don’t always make the effort to come out to somethin a little different (vive la difference!) and
then are the first to complain when things stop
won’t stop me from trying to establish a Folk Club that Grayshott can be proud
of (even if most of its residents couldn’t give two hoots) and I have plans in
place to bring the very best in Folk music from around the world (quite
literally) to Grayshott over the next six months or
think after that, I will have to review the situation because it has to be
sustainable and viable for me to continue.
I would like to pass on my sincerest
thanks to all those hard-working people from The Square Committee who put on the events in The Square
yesterday afternoon. I’m pleased we got a little respite from the dreadful weather in the
morning and that people turned out to take part in the activities that were laid
on. I hope everybody felt it was worthwhile and that they would consider
repeating the exercise in the future (although Bastille Day won’t be on a
Saturday again for a few more years).
so sorry the musicians didn’t arrive earlier but they had a horrendous journey
and they were pretty drained by the time they finally got to Grayshott. Lord
knows how they felt when they got back to Suffolk in the early hours of this
you are considering putting on something else in The Square that requires live
music, please get in touch with me and if you did enjoy last night’s music at The Social Club, please put the word
out about Grayshott Folk Club.
are some excellent musical nights coming up between now and Christmas, as listed
Again, thank you so much for
your support. I much appreciated it.
