Village Heritage Displays

The Village Hall could become the setting for a permanent display on the heritage of the village. Tom Cave, Chair of the Parish Council is trying to track down a number of trophies and certificates that were awarded to Worlaby over the last century. Many of these were held by the late Nan Machin, who would produce them for Village shows. He recalls some being on display in the Old Chapel, many years ago.

There were certificates that recognised the Village contribution to 'Warship Week', together with some relating to raising funds for Spitfires and the like during the war. There were also a number of shields and cups that were awarded for sports events and horticultural efforts. The Recreation Committee agreed with his suggestion that it would be nice, if they are retrieved, for them to be located in the Village Hall as a display on the Village heritage.

These would be alongside the more recent 'Best Kept Village' awards and the many achievements we hope to get in the future. We’d love to hear from you if you know where any of the trophies and awards may be stored, or if you have something relating to the history of the village that may be suitable to be put on display. Please contact the Parish Clerk, Deb Hotson.

WOW! We now have a staggering 86 members and some of them are coming from other villages too! Word is getting round.
Although we still have the traditional 'pub games' going on, we plan to do something really special for our August gathering.
With help from some of the J.W. people, we are hosting a 'hog roast'.  Yum yum! Everyone is welcome but it will be first come first served I'm afraid.  If the sun is shining we would like to put on a village game of cricket after the hogroast. We welcome ANYONE that would like to play. It would be nice to see some younger (30 somethings and 40 somethings ) show the old school how it's done! The teams will be random with men and ladies playing. Whites not needed as this is only a friendly bit of fun.
The J.W. Night will start a little earlier at 4.00 pm and the cricket will hopefully start around 6.00ish Let's hope the sun shines.

 

Complimentary tea/coffee available. If you like something a little stronger then please bring your own. We are hoping for a nice warm evening so we can sit out and enjoy the sunset.

 

One lucky J.W. member will win the free prize draw so if you want to be in it, come along to one of our nights and put your name down. I think we will leave Sept and Oct as a surprise for now but do look out for the posters in the village notice boards advertising what we are doing. The fish & chip van will be back for these.

 

Remember.....last Friday of every month. Usual start time of 7.00 ( except Aug when 4.00 onwards) FREE admission

Give it a try! you might be pleasantly surprized.

North Lincolnshire Rural Broadband Rollout update

Business Support
We’ve now provided over 1000 hours of FREE business support to local eligible businesses since the programme started in July last year.  Why have we done so many hours so far? Many of the businesses we support for free continue working with us and attend our workshops, even after they’ve completed the 12 hours required to obtain their free mobile device (currently a Microsoft Surface). We believe that shows how much our service is valued.

 

Have a look what other businesses have gained from our support. This month we’ve added case studies from ‘Lindsey Lodge Hospice’,  ‘Woodworx’ and ‘AP Robinson and Co Accountants and Business Advisors’ to our webpages.

 

If you’d like more information about the FREE business support we offer and eligibility criteria, please visit our webpages, or give Darren a call on 01724 297752. There are no catches. We are funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

 

SuperfastBroadband

 

First “live” cabinet ready
Fibre broadband via the Northern Lincolnshire Broadband project has arrived ahead of schedule! The project runs in four phases. Phase one was due to start this April and finish in September, but all involved have been hard at work making things happen much sooner than planned. The first cabinet went live on Friday 14 March, on Swift Drive in Scawby Brook. Many others will soon be ready too. Keep an eye on our webpages to keep up-to-date. Once upgraded, shop around for the best deal for you as BT have to let other internet providers use their network.

Don’t worry if you haven’t or don’t see your local area on the list. The roadshow will continue throughout 2014 and into 2015. We’ll also be out and about on evenings and at some weekend events. You don’t have to live or work in the named area to visit the roadshow bus.
