March 2018 Update
We are really excited to announce that our first Play Rangers session for some time will be held on Wednesday 11th April 10 am - 4pm on Bredon Playing fields. We're pleased to say that this has been funded by ourselves thanks to the Tesco grant we were awarded. This will be a fabulous day and will take place outside, whatever the weather. There will be lots of activities available, all completely free of charge. All welcome! If you can't make it on the 11th, there are plenty more sessions coming up over the summer, dates to be confirmed.
Another date to save is Saturday 23rd June for this years ‘Bredon’s Big Day Out’. Work is well under way with organising this, and it promises to be a brilliant day out for all the family. If you are interested in holding a stall, we are now taking bookings for this. Please email Andrea at Andrea.email@example.com for more information or to reserve a space. As you may already know, this year we are working with Bredon Hancock’s Endowed First School to help them celebrate their tercentenary (300 year anniversary). So, in addition to the fabulous stalls, demonstrations and games, the school are planning to have a parade through the village from the school to the playing fields, followed by activities including maypole dancing and singing from the children. Inside the hall there will be historical displays reflecting the changes over the years, from the school's beginnings as a blue coat school for 12 pauper boys, to the modern school it is today. For further information please contact Lindsay Barton by email at Lindsay.firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are due to do another prize draw for our 200 club members in the next few weeks. If you would like to be in with a chance of winning £50, we are always looking for new members. Membership is just £10 a year and is used to help fund activities and maintenance of the playing fields. For further information, or to join up, please contact Ruth Odell on 772114 or e mail email@example.com.
We have been aware for a while that the bark underneath the wooden climbing structure is very low. The good news is that the Parish Council have agreed to get this replenished. If you notice anything in the park that needs attention please contact us on the above email, use our Facebook page or contact the Parish Clerk (Timothy Drew) on 01684 773984.
There is a new pathway from the park, along Eckington road, which connects to our lovely rural footpaths. This is particularly beneficial for dog walkers, but please remember that our four-legged friends are not allowed on the playing fields.
Overall, we're looking forward to a busy and fun packed few months. Be sure to follow us on Facebook or check out future issues of the Parish magazine for updates.
