Village Hall Talks

There is a series of talks being held at the Village Hall in which speakers from the village who have a specialist skill/interest/experience, share their knowledge. There is no charge for entry.

Our thanks to the first 4 speakers:

–  Dr Sharon Croskin who began the series with a stimulating and very interesting talk on TRAUMA – the body keeps the score.
– Simon Thompson, dog handler and canine first aid trainer, who gave a talk on DOG FIRST AID, which was very informative and thoroughly enjoyed.
– Dr Peter Williams, who shared the depth and width of his knowledge and experience on  growing plants throughout A YEAR IN A WOODLAND GARDEN. Very impressive slides Peter!
– Buffy Breakwell for the COMMUNITY CHOIR WORKSHOP, which was great fun and which got us all singing confidently as promised!

Unfortunately the next talk, which was to be on the subject of
THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY, and which was due to be held on
Tuesday 24th March,
has been CANCELLED due to coronavirus.

It will be re-arranged as soon as possible. Watch this space!

Parish Plot

PARISH PLOT

Do visit this little oasis, which is situated on Church Lane near the crossroads with Breckstreet Lane and Mill Lane.  Our thanks to Roger Brook for maintaining the garden until Spring 2020. Peter writes an interesting blog called: nodiggardener.

The plot is owned by the Parish Council for the use of villagers and has gradually been reclaimed since 2005. Once the site of charitable homes for older village residents, the old fruit trees remain but only the foundations of the houses.

It has recently been taken on by Mr and Mrs Taplin and their hard work is already evident. The floor plan of the cottages has been exposed and there is a new entrance using one of the old cottage paths. There is a small area which will interest children. The next goal is a small wildflower meadow.

Please feel free to visit, wander, sit and enjoy.

If you would like to help with the maintenance of this garden, please email: seatonrosspc@gmail.com

Annual Litter pick – 18th April 2021

ANNUAL LITTER PICK – SUNDAY 18th APRIL

MEET AT THE VILLAGE HALL @1.30PM

Thank you to all those who keep the village tidy but there’s lots of litter being left on our grass verges coming into the village from all directions, which makes them very unsightly and often dangerous for animals. So please join us at the village hall @1.30pm.

We will be ‘socially distanced’ – family groups can work together. Please provide your own gloves, high viz jackets and litter grabbers if possible, but some spares will be available.

Thank you.

Village defibrillator at the Village Hall

If you need to use the defibrillator for an emergency cardiac arrest then:

  • Dial 999 and tell them the code on the box.
  • You will given a code by the emergency operator use it to open the box using the keypad.
  • Don’t forget to also ask for an ambulance.
  • Take the equipment to the emergency.
  • The defibrillator will know if the person is having a cardiac arrest, or not.
