Memories are made of this

One of the worthwhile tings of Facebook is that from time to time it reminds you of things that you posted some years ago.  Apparently on the 10 February 2013 I posted the following comment on Facebook.

Maureen and I have been to the Dragons Head for Sunday Lunch and a couple of bottles of Pinot Grigo. I am now reading a Michael Connolly book (on both my Kindle and my computer) whilst listening to Dvorak’s “The Bartered Bride”. This is what retirement was supposed to be about.

Apart from Maureen taking the last Tunnock’s Teacake from the Kitchen cupboard.”

Pete, Dave, Mary and Roy.

The picture brings a few tears to my eyes.  It’s seeing a youthful Roy Williamson and Pete Crane, when his hair still had colour.  Also two sadly, and much loved, absent friends. I suspect the photo was a little before 2013.

PC Vacancy – A reminder

On the 17 January I posted on this Blog the information that during the course of January’s Parish Council meeting it was announced that  a vacancy for a new Parish Councilor is likely to occur, due to impending retirement in the near future.

The PC have the power to co-opt a replacement during the intervening period before the next Parish Council Elections in May 2021.

A guide to the role, duties and importance of Parish Councilors, entitled Community Engagement can be viewed at this link.

The duties are not onerous, meetings are only held every two months, in Whittington Village Hall on a Monday evening, and the PC would like to hear from anyone prepared to become engaged in this aspect of local democracy.

Anyone who would like to look further into this opportunity should contact, in the first instance, either:

Gillian Hodgson, Clerk to the PC; email: gillianhodgson6@gmail.com; Tel: 015242 21814
or
Colin Hall, Vice Chairman; email: sellethall@hotmail.com;
Tel: 015242 71865.
