Two litter bins are being bought by the parish to try and tidy up the village. They will shortly be placed at either end of Wrights Lane.
The Sunday before Christmas saw a lively group of adults and children carolling their way through the village with a variety of both traditional and modern Christmas Carols. Ably led by some experienced songsters, any shortfall in talent was more than made up for in enthusiasm.
On arrival at the village hall, carols were sung around the tree and there
was a delightful and impromptu rendering of “Christmas Chopsticks”
by the children.
Seasonal refreshments were served; mince pies, coffee and sherry for the adults and chocolate log and juice for the children. Needless to say, some indulged in both desserts!! (Names supplied on request.)
It was a fun-filled couple of hours and hopefully, next year, the singing
(and turnout) will be even better.
Traditions, old & new
The Village Hall was, for the first time in living memory, booked for a
New Year’s Eve function. Cridling
Stubbs was certainly the happening place to be as the New Year was seen
in with gusto.
much-voiced concern is that some pet owners are allowing their pets to
cause a nuisance by fouling the footpaths around the village. A new set of signs will soon be on display and dog owners are
asked, again, to take heed of the legislation.
