A monthly roundup of events provided by Bury Parish Council.
The Summer Solstice last Friday brought with it some long awaited sunshine leaving the village looking as beautiful as ever. Sarah, who manages the village hall bookings has kindly planted up a small herb garden in the planters in the car park. Thanks to all those who nurture the wildlife in their gardens.
Councillor numbers go from strength to strength with more interested residents coming forward this month. We currently have one vacancy available on the council and continue to welcome interested volunteers. For those not wanting the responsibility of joining the council, there are numerous vacancies available if you’d like to help, from recording visual safety checks at Bury Green and The Wharf to simply weeding the paths around the Village Hall.
One such volunteer to mention is Bob Trent who continues to give his time very generously updating and maintaining our website. Thank you Bob for all your hard work in this area, it’s greatly appreciated. Thanks also go to Rosemary Trent, who, after nearly eight years as Clerk to Bury Parish Council, has now stepped down. Rosemary has always been dedicated and passionate in her role particularly with local planning issues. Rosemary fought to maintain our Post Office links and often went above and beyond, always making herself available to answer questions from residents around the village. The Council would like to thank her for all her hard work and want to wish her well in the future.
The village hall continues to be a well used space. Over half term we had a wonderful group of Brownies stay on their residential. They always enjoy the village and surrounding countryside. We are always open to such groups, so please do recommend the hall. All the information is available on the village website.
The village hall committee continue their hard work maintaining and caring for our community space. The hall is now 44 years old so a schedule of ongoing maintenance has been drawn up ensuring the building is not only kept safe, but also an up to date and very useable space.
Finally, a quick reminder that our Post Office continues to operate on Fridays 1.15 – 3.15pm and continues to be well used. Please continue to use this valuable service. Don’t forget the Village Hall is available for bookings for parties or classes and is very cost effective for residents. Bookings can be made directly through the booking form on the website. For more information about work parties, volunteering and footpaths, please contact Hannah Rosalie on 07875 660119.
