NEW HOMES BONUS

Wychavon District Council has allocated £32,853 to North Claines parish Council.

The Parish Council would like to spend this sum on the purchase of land in the Parish.

There is to be a public meeting on the use of the new homes bonus monies for this purpose on Monday 7th October from 6:30pm to 7:30pm before the Parish Council meeting that will start at 7:30pm.

Consultation on the use of the land will be held later in the year. Information will be posted on this website.

Fernhill Heath Scarecrow Competition and Trail

Fernhill Heaths scarecrow trail and competition will take place during half term week – 28th October to 3rd November.  We hope that children and families of all ages will have fun creating and making a scarecrow to put outside their homes or in the window.

Last year saw even more fabulous and inventive scarecrows springing up all over the village. Can you help us beat last year’s numbers and make it a true invasion?

BBC Hereford and Worcester came out to make a short video and also aired the story on the radio. As a result, lots of visitors came, and along with local and families, happily and excitedly, followed the scarecrow trail around the village.

The closing date for entries is 26th October and the judging will take place on Wednesday 30th October by the manager of Fernhill House Care Home, who are kindly sponsoring the event.

Entry forms are available now and the route to take in order to see all the scarecrows will be available from the Costcutter and Spar Shops from 27th October.  Refreshments will be available at the Baptist Church on O’keys Lane throughout the day.

Christmas in the Memorial Hall – formerly Christmas on the Brum.

On Saturday November 30th from 2-4pm Father Christmas will be visiting Fernhill Heath again. He will travel around the village before arriving at his grotto in the Memorial Hall Fernhill Heath at 2pm. There will be various stalls and childrens activities in the hall – an excellent time to do some Christmas shopping. Refreshments will also be available – so keep the date free in your diary! More information will be available nearer the date and in the upcoming “Events” booklet. For further information please contact Meg on 01905 454601.
