Removal of Play Area fencing:-

It is the intention of the Parish Council to remove the wooden fencing which surrounds the infant and toddler play area on the village playing field as it is in poor condition and could cause harm. The design and construction of the fence no longer complies with current guidelines on best practice for the provision of playground fencing. There is no requirement in law to provide fencing since the play area is well away from the road, therefore, the Parish Councillors have reached a decision to remove it.

If anyone has any particular questions or concerns, please telephone the parish clerk on 01485 518409.

Stanhoe Village Screen:-

Monday 14th October 7:30pm – ROBOT & FRANK (12A) comedy.

Set in the near future, Frank, a retired jewel thief, is given a robot carer by his son who finds it difficult to care for him from a distance. This is essentially about us oldies coping with new technology. At times very funny, charming and moving but with tragedy just below the surface. A deliciously inventive comedy. A crowd pleasing joy. DATE for your DIARY: Fri 15th November 7:30pm – Love is all you need (15) (romantic drama) Tickets £5 on the door to include a complimentary drink.

And finally (with thanks to the Wikipedia website):

  • October is commonly associated with the season of autumn in the Northern hemisphere and spring in the Southern hemisphere where it is the seasonal equivalent to April in the Northern hemisphere and vice versa (mind you as I write this September feels more like winter!)

  • October is also very commonly associated with Halloween in western world
