Fête accompli!

Thank you for supporting us at the Geddington Summer Fete! This year, we were raising money for our marquee and trailer which you may have seen at numerous village events over the last few years. Your support will allow us to continue to support other village organisations and events! THANK YOU.

Thanks to Justin Brice for the photographs.

2020 Spring Clean

The GVFB and village volunteers today completed part 2 of the annual Geddington and Newton spring clean. Circa 30 large bags of rubbish were collected from the roadside verges and hedgerows of Newton Rd, out toward Newton Village.

Passers by and cyclists were delighted with the activity taking place and to be fair to all involved the result is fantastic. Well done to organiser Pete Faulkner, Section Leader GVFB.

School clean-up

The Volunteer Fire-bobbies have been doing their thing again! Following the “Great Storm Ciara” and the follow up from “Storm Dennis” the village school was left with quite a bit of debris to clear from fallen branches etc. The clean-up took place on Saturday morning.

James McLean (Community Officer for the GVFB) commented;

Despite a bit of equipment failure, the playground was successfully cleared.

Community Officer

“A great effort from those who answered the call for assistance from the school saw the task completed in double quick time. Despite a bit of equipment failure of pressure washers halfway through, the playground was successfully cleared.

There are a few follow up tasks, which require a bit more specialist equipment. We have promised to return and tackle these extra jobs in a few weeks.

Not included in the photo were the new C.O Colin and ex Adjutant Graeme. Thanks to everyone for their time, it is very much appreciated by the school”

Well done to James for organising the works!
