Last Saturday we entertained 72 of the village’s Senior Citizens with a Scottish-themed dinner. We were delighted to have the village’s own piper, Nick Tysoe, perform for us alongside our own GVFB choir, with our renditions of Flower of Scotland, Auld Lang Syne, and I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) by the Proclaimers!
Thanks must go to Ali and his team in the kitchen for another great dinner, plus our entertainers Ruby and Steph & Tom.
On Sunday, we took our engine The Queen Eleanor around the village to see how easy it was to drive an emergency vehicle in some of the busier parts. We know the village has being discussing the difficulties the emergency services would have and we thought that we might be able to help visualise the situation.
It was by no means as busy as it has been recently and we’re happy to report that we made it through – albeit with the need of someone outside watching each corner.
That said, there was definitely one (maybe two) ‘pinch-points’ causing concern.We hope it helps the discussion and if there are other areas of the village you think it would help for us to check out, please get in touch.
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.
