Parish Council News
Please join the Parish Council in supporting this fundraising effort to develop the recreation field.
Please nominate any British women who have had a significant impact on their community, to celebrate the 100 years of their first vote. A lucky dip winner will be chosen from entries. Please send a maximum 50 word narrative, with a picture if possible, by the 23rd November to Sophie at Number 11 The Green. Langdon Lane. This is the first fund raising event for the recreation field upgrade which will benefit everyone in the village.
There will be an exhibition in the village hall celebrating 100 women who made a difference, many with local connections. Everyone is invited to celebrate and toast (supplied) women’s achievements on Friday 14th December 6.30- 9 pm. The exhibition will also be open on Saturday 15th 10-2.00pm with workshops, tea and cakes.
At both events we are hoping for donations for the recreation field upgrade which will be for all ages. For further information, ring Sophie on 07880 528004, or Rosie on 07903 330645.
Those Hard to Reach Places
The Parish Council would like to thank Ian and Christine Young for the donation of an extendable ladder for free use by anyone in the village. If you would like to borrow it please contact Tim Smith Vincent on 670767.
We Will Remember Them
This year, Remembrance Sunday falls on November 11th and marks the Centenary of the end of the First World War. All residents are warmly invited to come and share coffee at the Village Hall on the Sunday morning at 10 am and then walk down to the Lychgate for a service which will start at 10.45 am. A wreath will be laid and we will read out the names of those from Radway who fell in both World Wars, as well as the names of those who survived the Second World War and returned to the village. The congregation also hopes you will join them at the service that follows in the church.
The Church Council thanks all those that came along to the service on September 30th and the supper in the Village Hall on October 1st . This was an enjoyable evening with delicious food and the usual fun auction. The PCC would like to say a big thank you to Carpenters Farm shop for their generous discount, and to all those who auctioned, cooked and served, recognizing how much time, effort and generosity goes into making any event a success. An amazing total of £550 was raised and will be donated to an appropriate charity to be decided at the next meeting.
