Rural Crime Week of Action


Rural Crime Week of Action

Sunday 6th – Sunday 13th October

The National Rural Crime Network is supporting the Rural Crime Week of Action being organised by the National Police Chiefs’ Council and forces across the country.

The aim of the week is to put the work being done to identify and tackle rural and wildlife crime in the spotlight and encourage more support for the efforts ensure communities across rural Britain are safe and feel safe.

Julia Mulligan, Chair of the National Rural Crime Network, said:

“Rural communities are too often ignored by those in positions of power because they’re hidden from view. I hope this Week of Action allows us to shine a light on the issues they face with crime and anti-social behaviour challenges just like any other part of the country, but also being more vulnerable because of their isolation and distance from support services of all kinds.

“Despite the passionate and professional police officers who serve communities day-in, day-out, we need government and all national organisations to better understand, represent and stand up for the 10.3 million people who live in rural areas.”

The National Rural Crime Network’s last national survey in 2018 examined the true state of crime and policing in rural communities. Its findings can be seen at www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net/survey.

New Year’s Eve


NEW YEAR’S EVE

Saturday, 31th Dec, 9pm – 1am

We are planning a Village Hall disco evening to see in the New Year.

Why not come and join village friends and acquaintances and bring friends if you’d like to.

From 9pm onwards for an evening of nostalgic music of the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s.

We’d like several volunteers with a penchant for DJ’ing to put together a playlist each of their favourite disco party music which they will then DJ to the assembled party-goers – no getting off lightly – you will be Dj’ing your choices. There will be snacks available for those that feel they didn’t have enough dinner before they came and then a glass of fizz at midnight.

If the weather permits we may be able to conga round the car park and have our own outdoor rendering of Auld Lang Syne.

This will be a ticketed event to help us gauge numbers and it will be nominal cost. If you are able to contribute some nibbles then please let Lynne or Helen know. Contact Lynne (lyn225@hotmail.co.uk) or Helen (cullens135@gmail.com) to reserve tickets.

Welcome to 2020 Walk


WELCOME TO 2020 WALK

New Year’s Day – we are planning a gentle 2-5 mile walk which will be led by Paul Kitson (of “walks 100 miles at a time, Kitson”) which will start from the Village Hall at about 11am.

Please bring your dogs as it will be largely footpath and bridleway walking. We’ll be stopping at a surprise location either en route or towards the end of the walk where we hope to have a bonfire and drinks/nibbles.

For those that don’t want to do the walk you would be welcome to meet at the bonfire venue to join in and indeed to volunteer to help with the drinks. Vouchers should be purchased in advance for those that would like drinks so that we can properly cater. Contact Helen Cullen (cullens135@gmail.com) or Lynne Kitson (lyn225@hotmail.com) for more details.

There will be an alternative inclement weather plan.

Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale


Stamford Shoestring’s next production is:

BLUE STOCKINGS

by JESSICA SWALE

A pre-Christmas treat!

Don’t miss this chance to see what promises to be a highly entertaining and thought- provoking evening. 

Shakespeare’s Globe was packed to the rafters when Blue Stockings was first produced in 2013. Currently it is performed by theatre companies up and down the country and is hugely popular.

Girton College, Cambridge, was one of the first colleges in Britain to admit women.

The year is 1896 and Jessica Swale’s lively play tells the story of Tess Moffat and a group of ‘first-years’ determined to win the right to a degree. Their story is followed over one tumultuous year as they encounter the many hurdles in their way – the class divide, misogyny, and the university opposition – not to mention the distractions of love. Finally, the whole issue is put to the vote…

Love or knowledge: which would you choose?

In performance at the Stamford Arts Centre Theatre from:

Tues 3-Sat 7 December 7.45pm – tickets £10 (£8)

Box Office: 01780 763203 www.stamfordartscentre.com (An amateur production by arrangement with Nick Hern Books)
