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.
