Message from the Clerk at Finchingfield Parish Council:
“We are experiencing an increasing number of people simply leaving their bottles on the ground surrounding the bottle banks in Finchingfield.
I am placing a notice in our parish magazine urging people to place their bottles in the actual bank and not simply leave them on the ground surrounding the bank, I am assured by those reporting this that the banks do indeed have plenty of room in them to accept more bottles, our street cleaner regularly visits the area and puts the bottles into the bank.
Could I request you do likewise and urge your residents visiting the banks in Finchingfield to please ensure they place their bottles in the banks. Obviously I have no way of knowing whom the culprits are or indeed whether when they visit the banks they find them full”.
For a couple of hours on Bank Holiday Monday morning the 60s came to the village hall when we hosted the breakfast stop for the Essex and Herts Scooter Club. Approaching 100 Lambrettas and Vespas, some over 50 years old pulled up outside the hall so that their riders could enjoy coffee and bacon rolls and a good chat. All went fantastically well, local residents helped by keeping the parking area clear and the trustees of the hall plus some other helpers kept the food and coffee coming making a useful sum towards the ongoing hall refurbishment programme. Several of the scooterists said it was the best breakfast stop they had ever had and we hope to welcome them back another year. Thanks to all involved.
A message from the Office of the Crime Commissioner for Essex:
The National Rural Crime Survey is currently open for responses, closing on Sunday 10th June.
What you may not be aware of, is that if there are over 600 responses from Essex we will be able to access local county data from the survey, but if the responses from our county are under 600 we will only have national data to use. We are therefore very keen to try and ensure that we reach 600 respondents – and we are a way off that at the moment.
Could I encourage you, please, to share the link and promote the survey to your contacts and networks (including family and friends!) in the final 2 weeks. The survey can be completed by individuals, organisations and businesses, and can be promoted in a variety of ways, including e-mail, websites, newsletters, social media and word of mouth.
The survey can be accessed here: http://www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net/research/internal/2018survey/
Previously our music events have been mostly rock and roll but now for something completely different. On Sunday June 24th at 6.00pm we will be welcoming the East Anglian Single Reed Choir for an evening of light classical music together with a Pimms and Prosecco bar and strawberries and cream. Come along! Tickets are only £10 and available from Mair (01371 850620) or by emailing email@example.com. (For those who don’t know, and I didn’t, a single reed choir is an ensemble of various types of clarinet and saxophone)
