Joye and Michael Woodhead are collecting names and exhibits for the forthcoming Festival on May 12th and 13th.
The subject for the photographic exhibition this year is ‘Architecture’.
Joye will be collecting names of the Scarecrow exhibits too.
The Subject for the Flower Festival in the Church will be ‘Celebrations’ and Ann will very soon be twisting the arm of previous kind people who have done an arrangement for her but would very much like to hear from any willing newcomers too.
Plans are progressing nicely for the Village’s annual Well Dressing Event on the above date.
This year there will be a Family Treasure Hunt around the Village, the Well Dressing and Church Service, plus a Cream Tea event in the Village Hall - Something for everyone to get involved in!
The next planning meeting will be on Tuesday 24th April at 7.30pm in the village hall and with the format being different this year you can find out more and help plan for a great weekend!

Our Community defibrillator generously donated by British Heart Foundation is for the benefit of our Community. This would be needed in case of cardiac arrest when directed by the Emergency Services.
I personally know of 2 people (outside of Marston Montgomery) who are thankfully here today as a result of receiving CPR, within the last 14 months.
Every year 30,000 people suffer Cardiac Arrest out of Hospital. Less than 1 in 10 people survive.
In Norway where CPR is taught to all pupils in School 1 in 4 people survive.
If we achieve the same survival rates as Norway in this country we could save almost 5,000 lives every year.
Part of the agreement from BHF is to promote CPR training for the community which they have provided training kit, as per photo.
I have run a number of training sessions and am happy to put on further training /refresher covering CPR and use of defibrillator.
We have a training defibrillator provided by the village hall committee to assist training.
Alternatively, I'm aware many people receive training else where but if you would like to borrow training kit which includes DVD promoting CPR to use at home to teach family or refresh your skills it could be loaned out.
If your would like to attend hands on training, borrow the training
May we remind those who have been doing this that the Coronation Hall Bins are strictly for the use of the Coronation Hall and its related functions and not to act as an overflow for other peoples waste.
