A big ‘Thank You’ to all who took part in the village tidy up. A very successful turnout on a day when the weather was much kinder to us than last year. As always, the soup, bread and cake was a very nice end to the chore.
A reminder that all volunteers are welcome to this years spring clean. Meet Village Hall at 10.00am and afterwards Wesleyan House for hot soup and home made bread!
We are informed that Paul’s vegetable trailer has been stolen and that he may not be able to visit Alstonefield on a Thursday afternoon for a couple of weeks or so, while things are being sorted out. He fully intends to start up again as soon as possible
Following the fantastic turn-out on a rainy spring day last year, we have scheduled this year’s Spring Clean for the morning of Saturday 26th March 2011. All volunteers are welcome and should convene outside the Village Hall at 10.00am. Bin bags will be provided. Hot soup and bread at Wesleyan House for helpers afterwards!

‘Hello, I wonder if you can help me please, ? Last night, Saturday 18th September ’10, a 4×4 vehicle reversed into my parked vehicle, a light blue Honda sports car at my home address, 1 Church Lane, Alstonefield, causing damage to the bodywork. My house is on the road leading down to the church and a line of vehicles were parked on there from early evening until approx. 9.30 pm (The 4×4 owner had the vehicle parked from before approx 7.00pm to 9.30pm) and I am assuming they were attending the concert that was being held at St Peters Church. Unfortunately, I do not know the full details of the vehicle that caused the damage other than it was a 4×4 in a ‘ Royal Blue ‘ colour, without the spare wheel on the rear door type possibly and the part registration may have been FD06 ???. It was the last car parked in the line on the right hand side facing the church and I would be very grateful if anyone could provide me with any information in order I can make contact with the driver, I am sure the incident happened inadvertently and the 4×4 driver is probably unaware that damage was caused to my vehicle. If any residents have any information regarding this incident, would you please contact me either on the above email ddress or alternatively on my mobile number 07766078369. I realise this is probably a ‘ long shot ‘, but any information you can provide me with would be very helpful. Regards Brian Curtis
