December news – Festive events & Cedric the Elf

Dear Parishioners of Breighton & Bubwith

How wonderful Bubwith looked as I walked to the Parish Council meeting yesterday evening. Despite the rain, it was heartwarming to see the effort that has been made with the Christmas scene on the green
and the many homes of those who have felt able to put up lights to celebrate the festive season. Our grateful thanks to the Real Aeroplane Club and Real Aeroplane Company for their joint sponsorship
of the brilliant tree and also to the Bubwith Elves and Parish Councillors who gave their time to make sure we have a display to be proud of.

There is yet more to come by way of festive celebrations, so may I remind you of the:

Dance at the Leisure Centre – 18th December SOLD OUT!!
Carols around the Christmas tree on the green, followed by mince pies and mulled wine at the Barn,
Chain Bar House – 19th December
Quiz night at the Leisure Centre – 24th December
New Years Disco at the Leisure Centre – 31st December

Given the most recent events with Covid-19 and the Omicron variant, we will all no doubt be watching carefully the twists and turns of National Policy and guidance. Every effort will be made to ensure safety at the Leisure Centre for these events but sadly the events may be subject to change based on any National Policy Changes that are announced.

Some progress has been made this month regarding putting seats in the bus shelters. The local bus company have agreed that it is possible, and are going to send us a quote any moment so that we can take this forward.

The Leisure Centre Committee has been successful in finding new volunteer members. Some excellent people have come forward. However, if you are also interested in volunteering please make contact with Steve Young the Parish Clerk.

The Christmas post box has already received a large number of letters to Santa and Cedric Santa’s chief elf has asked me again to remind children and parents to include a clear name and return address on any
letters as a few have been posted without!

Finally, may I take this opportunity to wish everyone a very happy enjoyable Christmas and New Year from all of the Parish Council.

My very best wishes
Chair of Bubwith Parish Council,
