Following the AGM on 23rd September, a new committee is in place under the Trusteeship and financial control of
the Parish Council. Bookings and enquiries should now go through Charles
Bainbridge 07734 email@example.com . The rest of the
committee is made up of Celia Cracknell, Sally Judd, Cameron and Amanda Thomas, Sonia Frost, Rob Picton and Martin Clark (Chair) - please talk to one of us if you have
suggestions for future developments.
As we continue to develop the outside area we need more tools for gardening as well as basic hand
tools. If you have any old ones lying around and you would like to donate them
please contact Cameron on firstname.lastname@example.org so we can arrange to pick them
up. We are looking for anything from a hammer or spade to a leaf blower and hedge
trimmer . They just need to be safe and in good working order.
Update 14 November 2023:- First, a big thank you to Malcolm for his talk in October – the evening raised just over £650 for village hall funds which was a fantastic achievement. Thank you too to all the volunteers and committee members who worked so hard to make the evening a success and to everyone who attended and supported the event.
The Winter Market will have happened by the time this edition of the Echo hits the streets of Badingham and we are pleased that it is now a shared event with the Community Café. This will be the first event using the new outside area so we are looking forward to that and to developing it as a herb garden and a lovely outside space in the coming months.
Thank you to Michael Wigan and Badingham Farms Xmas trees for donating the Christmas tree again this year and to Enterprise Badingham for organising it and decorating the tree.
