Clerk - Scrooby Parish Council
O Brother, Where Art Thou?
Scrooby Community Cinema presents at 8pm Sunday 22 September 2019, O Brother, Where Art Thou? (Doors open 7.30pm) at Scrooby Village Hall.
Ulysses Everett McGill (George Clooney) is having difficulty adjusting to his hard-labor sentence in Mississippi. He scams his way off the chain gang with simple Delmar (Tim Blake Nelson) and maladjusted Pete (John Turturro), then the trio sets out to pursue freedom and the promise of a fortune in buried treasure. With nothing to lose and still in shackles, their hasty run takes them on an incredible journey of awesome experiences and colorful characters.
Tickets £4 per person on the door. Licenced Bar. Cert 12.

Scrooby Neighbourhood Action Plan - Next Steps
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.
