Garden club's trees legacy in SImonstone

Education SundayAn Education Sunday service will take place on February 6th in St Peter's Church, Simonstone, at 10 a.m. The children of St Peter's School will tak part and perform various duties connected with the service. This will also be a family communion service and as usual coffee, tea and biscuits will be served afterwards.

Garden clubWith the agreement of the parish council all funds that remained when Simonstone Garden Club closed in June, will be spent in the following way: Trees will be planted on land below the Stork Hotel car park, near or in School Lane, in the lay-bye/car park at the rear of Railway Terrace.

The trees will be planted in the next planting season and while being good for the environment, will hopefully bring pleasure to villagers for years to come.

The secretary of the former Simonstone Garden Club, Mrs M. Kelly, sends her thanks to members who supported the club over its last few years wishes them all a very happy New Year.
