Apologies – we’ve had an upgrade!

We have to apologise for the lack of Minutes on the Parish Council page.

WORDPRESS, the site’s ‘Content Management System’ has given geddington.net an upgrade.

We didn’t ask for it and it appears that there are one or two glitches in the new system and putting Minutes on the Parish Council page is one of them. It will only put Agendas in the Minutes column, no matter what I do.

In the meantime, the best thing I can do for those who wish to read the missing Minutes – June and July – is to put them on this Post. They will be in a .pdf format, so you will need to click on each one separately.

Sorry – can’t find where to upload .pdf files to this Post. The obvious choices haven’t worked. Bear with me as I will keep trying.

Swish & Shop Evening

Fund-raising with a difference, at least it is for The Samuel Lee Charity, so here goes:

All the details, all the phone numbers, all the people to contact, all on the poster below!

Geddington Youth Club

Our Blue Blanket has found a Home

Members of the Knitting Club
have found a home
for their first completed blanket.

.

Knitted in co-ordinated colours of blue, grey and white, the members took the opportunity to donate the blanket at the weekly coffee morning at the newly built Westhill Park Residential & Dementia Care Home, which overlooks the A14.

Whilst there, the club members also took the opportunity of touring the Home and saw the blanket in situ, or more precisely, in the Cinema Room, which, of course, provided a photo opportunity.

Now, where will the red blanket find a home . . . . . ?

Knitting Club Thrives

Geddington Knitting Club continues to thrive with a lively group attending every Friday morning at Cafe Oak, 10 – 11.30am.

Nicky Brice, creator of the knitting club, reports: “It’s been wonderful to see so much activity around the tables with informal crochet lessons as well as knitting our own projects and making our fabulous blanket.”

 

“We’ve already have enough squares to complete the next blanket (see below, where it’s under construction here) and a possible third, and we also have a Christmas project in the pipe-line – more about that nearer the time!”

 

 

 

 

The GKC is a free, weekly event, where all are welcome whatever your ability so please feel free to pop in any Friday for a coffee and a chat. It would be lovely to see you.

Walking Netball in Geddington

There’s something new going on in Geddington….

A casual conversation about playing netball at school and remembering how much it was enjoyed, led a group of ladies to consider the idea of setting up a Walking Netball group within the village.

The starter session held in April was planned as a fun session but we soon found that age had not dimmed our competitive spirit or our sense of fun!

Sessions now run every Wednesday afternoon, supported by local  coaches, at Geddington Primary School . The rules of Walking Netball are slightly different and the sessions take account of our very wide ranging levels of fitness and experience. We usually spend the hour building up our skills through fun routines and then follow it up with a ‘match’ where we try to apply those skills.

Walking Netball girls

It is great fun and has given us a chance to meet up with others wanting to improve their fitness and do something a bit different. England Netball have been very supportive and are helping us to gain some community sponsorship to enable us to continue through the winter.

You don’t have to be fit; you don’t have to be old; you don’t need to have played before and you don’t have to know the rules, but you will need a sense of humour and a pair of trainers to take part.

We would love to see the group grow and would invite anyone who might be interested to get in touch for more details or just come along and see for yourself how it is done.

Every Wednesday;  5:30-6:30pm in term time  Cost £3 per session
