Edwinstowe High Street Christmas Event - Book Your Stall

21st September 2017

The 2017 Edwinstowe High Street Christmas Event will take place on Thursday 23rd November from 4.30 pm until 7.00 pm.

The Parish Council invite you to participate by having a stall. This is a terrific opportunity to promote your organisation and, with a little creativity, ensure a successful event for the community and for you.

As last year we plan to extend the event for the full length of the High Street by positioning Santa’s Grotto at the top by the Royal Oak. There will be live music and street entertainers along the High Street. We are inviting local organisations and craftspeople to participate and plan to have more stalls and entertainment to keep building on last year’s success. This can only happen with your support and by working with businesses and the local community we hope that everyone will take part. £15.00 will secure the stall and where possible, you will be given preference in where this is located.

21st September 2017

Holocaust Memorial Day (HMD) takes place on 27th January each year, and is the day for everyone to remember the millions of people murdered in the Holocaust, through Nazi Persecution, and in subsequent genocides in Cambodia, Rwanda, Bosnia and Darfur. On HMD we honour the survivors of these atrocities, challenge ourselves to work to end discrimination and prejudice, and pledge to help create a safer, better future.

The theme for HMD 2018 is ‘The Power of Words’ It recognises that spoken and written words from individuals, corporations, community organisations or the state, can have a huge impact, whether good or bad. The theme for this year explores how language has been used in the past, and how it is used in the present day. Guidance on our 2018 theme is available on the HMDT website.

Farm Owners & Landowners Beware

14th August 2017

The Environment agency are warning farm owners and landowners to be aware and not become a victim.

There are teams of criminals that operate in the area who will offer cash to store waste on your land. They promise to come back and remove it but won’t and you’ll be left with waste that may contaminate your land. What’s more, you’ll probably have to pay to have it lawfully removed.

You may be committing an offence by allowing waste to be stored on your land without the relevant permissions which could leave YOU liable to prosecution.

For more details on what you should do if someone approaches you to store waste on your land click the link below.
