Here is the latest news from our Spaldwick Facebook feed:
There are currently 3 members on the Spaldwick Social Group - all of us work full time, and have children at home.
We have just had an emergency meeting and have sadly had to agree that with only 3 of us on the committee we are unable to put on any events for the Spaldwick community. This includes the fete (pencilled for 11th July), scarecrow week and
Santa’s sleigh and singalong at Christmas.
We are devastated by this, as we have worked very hard to build these village traditions & value the amazing sense of community at these special events.
However we cannot do it without more committee members.
If you value these events, then the only way we can put them on in future is to get more support from you, the villagers.
We need a min of 8 people - one specific role that we need is treasurer.
We will be making the final decision on Sunday 23rd Feb

SPALDWICK NEWS UPDATE:
Since taking on Spaldwick News in September 2018, it's always been my intention to make the newsletter self-financing through getting sponsors onboard - and, when reserves allowed, returning some of this to the village.
I'm therefore delighted to say that we're now in a position to do exactly that! So...Here's who will benefit:
*St James Church, Spaldwick- £50
*Spaldwick School - £50
*Playtimes (lighting fund) - £50
It takes many hours of hard work, but everyone involved with Spaldwick News volunteers their time for free (including myself) - I'm really grateful for the work that our Distributors and Contributors do...and, of course, our AMAZING sponsors!
Thanks again for the positive feedback,
Please share with anyone who might be interested!
St James Spaldwick Restart Celebration and Consultation - 4pm Sunday 2nd February:
Since he arrived in the village the Rev Philip Howson has been working with local enthusiasts to re-think how your community’s church can best be developed to become a thriving Parish church which is enjoyable, relevant and accessible to the whole community. A good church is not simply a nice building, it’s an energetic community serving and supporting everyone, and we want it to be the best it can be for you.
So please do join us to hear our plans, tell us what you‟d like from us and how as a community you can help us get there. Spaldwick is a very young village, so please do bring your children so they can have their say too. Refreshments will be provided.
If you can‟t join us on 2nd February, please feel free to get in touch by following us on Facebook and commenting, emailing email@example.com, or directly with Philip at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling his office on 01480 869081.
