This was the last draw of the 2019/2020 200 Club year, thank you all for your support.  The 200 Club is a major part of our fund raising towards improvements to the building and we would be about to approach you in the hope that you would be willing to continue with your membership for another year.  As COVID-19 is impacting on all our lives we are postponing the start of another 200 Club year until the Government restrictions are lifted when we will contact you in the hope you will continue with your support for the village hall.
A full list of prize winners for 2019/2020 will be placed on the notice board outside the village hall.  Thank you all again.

Parish Council meetings
Due to the present health restrictions all Parish Council meetings are suspended until further notice. If Parishioners have any problems, concerns or questions please contact one of the Councillors. Any points of interest will be posted on the notice boards and the village web site.
The Annual Meeting that is scheduled for May will be postponed until a later date in the year.
Planning
New application 0237 – The Forge, Blacksmiths Lane, Newton Solney – First floor extension, rear dormer and retaining wall.
New application 0184 – Finn Broad, Bretby Lane, Bretby – wall.
 Previous application 0854 – Agricultural building at The End is still under consideration with a decision pending.
Bonfire
Due to tremendous efforts of a number of people the bonfire is finally being burnt and hopefully will soon disappear. A big thank you to all concerned.
Social Distancing
At this difficult time we must all observe the social distancing recommended by the Government. The Parish Council have received a number of complaints and concerns about people disregarding social distancing on the Recreation Field. This is not acceptable and anybody seen acting in this way will be reported to the police and action taken. If this behaviour continues the Recreation Field may have to be closed and this is something that we do not wish to impose.
Next meeting
The next meeting will be notified as and when restrictions are eased.

The Village News formally the Parish Magazine
The May edition of the Village News, formally the Parish Magazine, is now available to view on the web site http://www.thevillagenews.org.uk/. A number of hard copies of this publication will be made available to those unable to access this web site and will hopefully be delivered in due course.
It is hoped that when the present Covid 19 situation is brought under control the Village News will return to the usual format and hard copies will be made available to all. News on this topic will be forthcoming from the Editor in due course.


Hopeful it will not be long until a normal Village Hall newsletter can be delivered through your letterbox.  Until then keep safe and observe social distancing and most importantly keep smiling!!!
