Scrooby Parish Council

Tony Smith

Hi Graham,

I am not sure how you can do this but we need to put the Notice of the Parish Council Elections on the website.

Also we have created a two page recruiting document to engender more support and/or new councillors to come forward.

I have enclosed both notes as pdf files and wonder if you could put them on the Home page somehow so as to create maximum impact.

Many thanks for your assistance. Best Regards

Best Regards
Tony Smith
Clerk - Scrooby Parish Council.

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

In the aftermath of World War II, Juliet Ashton forms an unexpected bond with the residents of Guernsey as correspondence between her and members of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society takes hold, with them sharing their experiences of Nazi Occupied Guernsey. When her idea for a book about their experiences during the war is suggested, Juliet goes to visit the island, making lifelong friends and taking life changing steps on the way. This book is told by way of the letters, and as the reader you become enchanted by the writers of them and the love Juliet comes to feel for each of the Islanders; Dawsey, Amelia, Isola, Eben, Kit and Elizabeth. A beautiful story of love, friendship and the sadness of friends lost.

Scrooby Neighbourhood Action Plan - Next Steps

Tony Smith

The SNAP Steering Group offers its many thanks to all those who came along on Friday, 22nd February 2019 to hear the outcome of the Call to Sites phase of the SNAP plan. Whilst the consultation did not produce any specific sites we could commit to the way forward was agreed to be policy driven to manage the future development requests, a good way of working.

The next step is next week for the Steering Group to agree on the 1st Draft Plan document, content and wording. Once that is done the 1st Draft SNAP Plan will be released for all parishioners to consult over a 6 week period.

So please remember a lot is being done behind the scenes and you will be invited to join in again very soon.

You can see clearly the medieval fish ponds between the manor and the railway (the series of large depressions in the grassy area at the top centre of the picture).

Hester Benjamin: Adventures of a Pilgrim Daughter

Jennie Robbins

Scrooby's own Jennie Robbins has published a book for children; a story of friendship, love and adventure, set in Scrooby, England, at the time of the Pilgrim Fathers. A work of fiction for young teenagers based on historical events in the year 1607.

Hester and Mercy are as close as sisters; nothing can come between them. But events are about to shake their peaceful village life to its roots and change things forever. How will their friendship survive when they are forced apart by their families and their faith?

You can buy the e-book for Kindle on Amazon.
