Meeting cancelled

The Parish Council meeting due to take place this evening (Monday 4th September) has had to be cancelled as, unexpectedly, only two of the councillors were able to attend.  The quorum required to hold a meeting is three.

There is still a vacancy on the Parish Council to be filled by co-option and, if that place had been filled, it probably would not have been necessary to cancel the meeting.

Friendship Club and Maisemore loss

Jane Evans, Friendship Club Coordinator, writes    
On behalf of the members and helpers of the Friendship  Club, I wish to send our sympathy to Terry Yardley and his family following the death of Marion his wife. She was a Godsend to the village of Maisemore and beyond. Always reliable, she never let anyone down, nothing was too much trouble. She was a talented cook, dressmaker, friend to everyone, and a Secretary to many Committees etc, etc. Her family will miss her, and the club already miss her laughter and fun. 


However, in her usual efficient way, she had asked her friend and fellow helper Mary Payne at the Maisemore Riding for the Disabled if she would take her place cooking for the Friendship Club. Mary has proved to be the ideal person and we are very grateful that Marion arranged this transition for us.
    
In recognition of the help and involvement of Marion's life - of which I have mentioned only a few things, some 200+ people attended her funeral. The Friendship Club cooks provided the food with help from members of the Maisemore Riding Club plus others. She will be greatly missed, and always remembered, with love.

Excellent Fete!

Maisemore Fete on Monday raised £2397.65 to be split between Church and Village Hall funds.  That's over £200 more than last year.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make it a success and to everyone who came along and helped achieve such an excellent result.
