Help tidy up the village for the autumn!

The first of our autumn community working groups have been a great success. Both the bus stop and phone box look much smarter, bulbs have been planted around the village sign and some much-needed repairs have been started on the play area.

There is still more to do so there will be a further working party this Saturday 15 September. We’ll gather at the play area on the Recreation Ground from around 09:30 and we’ll focus on

  • further maintenance on the children’s play area
  • refurbishing memorial seats at the Village Hall and on the Common.

We would welcome your help, even for only an hour or two. Names in advance would be helpful (Roger Smith on 01508 538225 or or you can just turn up on the day. Tools and materials will be available or you may prefer to bring your own. Bring some refreshments for a mid-morning break!

Police news

Screen Shot 2018-08-14 at 19.56.14You can find the latest news from your local beat team by clicking Poringland newsletter Aug 18.pdf. This includes a suggestion that all householders should get into the 9PM routine. This means that each evening just before you settle down to watch Vera or whatever else might start at 9 o’clock you should just pop out and check that the car is locked, the tools are all safely in the garden shed and teh door is locked, the garage door is closed and locked and that all outside doors to the house are locked too (with you on the inside!) Apparently it’s been a great success in Florida so even though crime rates in our part of the county are low it’s a worthwhile reminder.
