WELCOME TO NORTH KYME NEWSLETTER

 

October 2016  Issue 101

 

 

Get wrapped up Autumn is coming!  This is an interim newsletter that I’ve been asked to compile as after 5 years Stella and Dara have reluctantly handed over the reins due to work commitments. So we are now looking for an enthusiastic editor to add a bit of “pizzazz” to this village institution. The newsletter comes out only once every two months so it is not too back breaking a job.

If anyone fancies taking on the prestigious position of North Kyme News Editor please contact any of the parish council.

 

For those who have internet you can view this newsletter as well as letters from the past at www.northkyme.com.  Here you can contact the editor with anything you think should be included in the newsletter. Or alternatively call Glynn (for the time being) on 01526 861620.

 

Parish Council

 

Position Vacant on the Parish Council

We currently have a vacant position for a councillor on the village council.  If you would be interested in filling this very worthwhile position please inform the parish Clerk by email  theparishcouncil@northkyme.com.  You must have been resident in the village for 12 months or more to qualify.

 

Play equipment for North Kyme playing field

 

We are close to being in a position of placing some much needed play equipment on the playing.  This is to be a joint venture by both village hall, parish council and local residents. As such we propose to have a meeting at the village hall Wed “6th Oct, 7:30 open to anyone who has suggestions on position of equipment, for what age, what type of equipment, fund raising etc.

Glynn Pout  (Chairman, North Kyme Parish Council)

Looks at that!!!  Issue 100 of the Newsletter.  And a great one too as it is the Summer Show time.  It would be great for it to be the biggest Show ever.  We have baking, craft, jam making, flower arranging, childrens section and the mens section.  Again this year, it is open to everybody local or from afar!  There will also be an open dog show, and we are holding a scarecrow competition in the village, put your entries out on the week of the show, and they will be judged on the day of the show!  So, no excuses, there is something for everyone!!  See schedule enclosed.

 

The Strawberry Tea was a great success, raising £155 for the Village Hall funds.  The fashion show was really well attended and that raised £220.  It is great when events like these are a success; so much work goes into these events by volunteers.  Thankyou to all who helped.

Parish Council

As many of you will know the Parish Council suffered a huge loss with the passing of Cllr Geoff Bailey.  Geoff attended meetings right until the end, this showed the determination and dedication that Geoff gave the village throughout his many years serving North Kyme.  We thank him for this; he will be very sadly missed.  Our sympathies go to Pauline and the whole family.

Signs are soon to be erected on Vacherie lane indicating that there are many pedestrians, children and dog walkers who use the lane.  Hopefully this will drum home to speeding cars and farm machinery that Vacherie lane is not a race track!

Finally towards the end of September the "Life Skills Academy” in the village will be closing it's gates for good.  It is unknown what will become of the site when it is handed back to the LEA.  We will keep you posted.

Enjoy your holidays and we hope to see you all at the produce show later this month

At last the sun is shining, and we are fast approaching the Summer Show.  We hope you have all been thinking about your entries this year.  We have as ever baking, craft, jam making, flower arranging, childrens section and the mens section.  There will be a dog show, and we are holding a scarecrow competition in the village, put your entries out on the week of the show, and they will be judged on the day of the show!.  So, there is plenty for everyone!  We have enclosed this years schedule.

 

There has been lots going on at the hall.  The medium night raised over £80, and the bingo raised over £230.  And we had a great evening in celebration of the Queens 90th birthday.  And the Wrinkly Rockers sold out!!  Thankyou for all your support for events that take place in the hall, without your support it would not be possible.  As ever thanyou to all the people that volunteer their time to ensure the hall can continue to hold events for the community.

Annual Parish Meeting.          Wednesday May 11th

 

The Annual Parish Meeting will be held this year before the AGM at 6.30 pm. The parish meeting is the time when you can come along and tell the chairman of the Parish Council what you like or don’t like about how the village is being managed.  If you have a great idea that you think the village would benefit from, then come along and tell us!  There will be soft drinks as well as coffee, tea and biscuits all provided free of charge for those attending.

 

 

 

 

Parish Council

 

We celebrated the Queens 90th birthday in true North Kyme fashion last month, the beacon was lit and the Village Hall was buzzing.  A small apology to those who turned up at 8pm to see the beacon being lit.  A decision was made to light it early as so many children had to be in bed.  The beacon was still burning at its allotted time and could be seen from miles around (well the smoke could).

 

Those of you who use the playing field will have noticed a brand new set of full sized goal posts with nets.  This was an idea suggested by the young people at the last parish meeting.  If you see around the village that we are lacking anything, or anything needs changing, then the parish meeting on Wednesday is an ideal informal forum to mention it.  Indeed at any parish council meeting, there is a window at the beginning of the meeting where you can air any issues you have.

 

Enjoy the sunshine, and if you have any ideas for organised games or activities on the playing field then get in touch, we are only too pleased to help.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

 

The 1st of February is St Brigid’s Day, and signals the start of Spring.  So that’s good news!  The days are getting lighter, the bulbs have started to flower.  We’ve had a very mild winter, which I’m sure everybody is happy about.

 

We have a date for our Village Show, 20th August.  So, get planning and planting to enter some of our multitudes of classes.  We have fruit and veg, crafts, baking, jams, wines, even a mens section! There really is something for everyone!!

 

The Christmas Craft Fair raised £37, and the Christmas Prize Bingo raised over £300 for Village Hall Funds, as always thanks to all those who contributed and helped!!

Parish Council

 

Happy New Year to you all.  At the beginning of this year I had a phone call from a village up near Lincoln. They were asking if it would be possible to come and have a look round our village hall.  They were embarking on a similar project and had been told that our hall was the best example in the area of what could be done in a small village.  All those involved, especially the committee should really proud of what they have achieved.

 

Dog Fouling

 

Unfortunately at every parish meeting we have complaints about dog fouling on Vacherie Lane, the verges and unbelievably on the playing field.  Please, please clean up after your dogs and dispose of it in the bin provided.
