QUEEN’S 90th BIRTHDAY CELEBRATIONS TO BE HELD IN JUNE 2016

We hope the whole village will want to celebrate Her Majesty’s 90th birthday and are suggesting a picnic on the recreation ground in June.

To make an event like this enjoyable for all we need a committee of volunteers to make it work.

If this is of interest to you and you feel you could help please contact:

Clerk to the Parish Council
Serendipity, Coltsfoot Green, Wickhambrook, Newmarket, Suffolk  CB8 8UW
Tel: 01440 821861
E-mail: parishclerk@wickhambrook.org

Sunday 20 March 2016 at 11 a.m. to meet at the MSC car park

Village Notices

Grit Heaps
During recent winters the help in spreading salt/grit and clearing snow and ice from pavements was greatly appreciated. We want to build on this support so we are prepared for the severe weather during the coming winter. We hope that those that have assisted in the past will continue to do so and that those who have not yet participated will consider their involvement this winter. In past winters the public were concerned that if they helped to clear snow they may have been liable for third party claims. Suffolk County Council can confirm that anyone who clears snow from outside their own or someone else's property would only be liable for an accident if their efforts actually made the pavement less safe than it was with the snow and ice undisturbed and as a result somebody is injured. Where Town and Parish Councils keep a list of the names of their volunteers then these people would then be covered under the terms of the County Council's insurances for public liabilities.

If you are able to volunteer please contact Roger Medley, Clerk to the Parish Council, 01440 821861.

Bury Road playground
The small playground on Bury Road in the Clopton area has been the responsibility of Havebury Housing. Havebury does not have the expertise within the organisation to check and maintain the play equipment on a regular basis and have suggested that the small fenced area be gifted to the Parish Council.

New equipment, swings, a rocker cum see saw and safety tiling, has been installed and a RoSPA certificate has been issued. The handover will take place in the near future.

We need someone who lives locally to inspect the area on a regular basis, say once a week, and note if there is anything of concern. If that person is willing to give a verbal report at the Estates Meeting, held on a Tuesday every second month, so much the better. The next meetings are on 10th April and 12th June. Monthly playground inspections will be carried out by Borough staff and an annual visit will be made by an independent professional. Any volunteers? Please contact the Parish Clerk on 01440 821861 if you are willing to give it a try.
