What can we do with our village telephone box?

What can we do with our village telephone box?

We have a shiny renovated telephone box, complete with gold painted crowns! The question is: what useful role can we now give it? People have suggested an information point, where we could display posters and have stocks of e.g. the newsletter, flyers for events and other literature. Perhaps it could have a dual purpose with a book swap? Your ideas are welcome, although we might be looking for volunteers for any storage/shelving units etc that might be needed! Please email us at ashtonuhillcommunity@gmail.com or post/message us here.

Reverend David Lewis

Good morning everyone. Very sad news that the man who died earlier this week near Ashton was Rev David Lewis, Rector of Elmley and associated parishes including ours. Please see statement below from the diocese. The Parish Council, on behalf of Ashton, send our deepest condolences to David’s family.
 
Dear all,
 
I have now been authorised to release the following short statement ahead of a formal statement from the Diocesan Office.
“The person whose death was reported in the Evesham Journal on 10th September and who had died suddenly in the area of Ashton under Hill, has now been confirmed as being the Reverend David Lewis, Rector of Elmley castle, with Bricklehampton and the Combertons, and Associate Priest in Overbury with Teddington, Alstone and Little Washbourne, with Beckford and Ashton under Hill.
A formal statement will be issued shortly by the Bishop of Worcester, and in the meantime our thoughts and prayers are with David’s family during this difficult time”.
This statement has been agreed with David’s immediate family and can therefore be used to inform people of this sad news.
My personal love and prayers are with everyone affected, and please feel free to contact me at any time should you need any support or prayers.
Warmly,
Allison.
Reverend Allison Davies
Vicar of Eckington, Defford with Besford and Associate Priest for Overbury

Roadworks Playing Fields Lane 9th Sep

Western Power Distribution need to carry out work on their underground cable network on Playing Fields Lane. They will need to trench across the lane as per the attached plan, therefore vehicular access and egress to residential  properties and the recreation ground may be fully or partially restricted during this period. They will provide cover plates for excavations where possible.

The date will be 9th September for the excavation works (with reinstatement typically completed within two working days). This will temporarily block access to some residents and WPD will write to those affected to keep them informed.

10th Run Around Supper Report 2019

10th Run Around Supper Report 2019

Apologies for the delay in writing this post, but we wanted to let you know that the 10th Run Around Supper raised almost £1,500 this year. Thank you so much to everyone who contributed and supported the event – it’s very much appreciated.

The money is being distributed between the First School and Barney’s Fund.

Barney’s parents are putting the money towards a new ‘off roader’ for Barney (called an All Terrain Delta Buggy) as he is outgrowing his existing one and no longer sits comfortably in it. This is essential for those everyday pleasures that we take for granted, like going up the hill and enjoying our wonderful surroundings. A new buggy means that Bev and Andy can continue to take Barney on country walks to find horses – Barney’s favourite thing! They can also push it on the sand when they go camping and access places that would be difficult and dangerous in a wheelchair. Bev and Andy focus on the positives, making everyday count and creating happy memories – and your contributions really help them to achieve this.

Thanks again for all your support.

The Run Around Supper Team
