March Newsletter 2015

Firstly Web Updates

I have posted this newsletter a little early but it was convenient for me to do now rather than later. The site is now getting a few more hits in relation to village hall hire. Hopefully this will increase the revenue made by the hall. There is now a calendar and access links directly on the home screen. This will allow visitors to access the booking faster.

If you wish to discuss anything with the Postwick readers then by all means select the post and scroll to the bottom of the page. You can then make comments / suggestions or general chat. See the right hand column for the latest comments made. If it is general chat then just click on the latest Postwick newsletter heading. It doesn’t have to be newsletter related.

Postwick Coffee Shop

Postwick Coffee Shop is on Tuesday mornings at the Village Hall between 10.30 and 12.00 noon. All welcome.

Glass Recycling Bank

Despite now being able to place glass bottles and jars in the grey recycling bins the village is keen to raise funds by the continuing use of the large bottle bank at the Village Hall. Please consider this in planning your recycling, it does raise £53 per tonne.

Village Hall Noticeboard Advertising Fees

Please could anyone who wishes to advertise on the noticeboard contact Jane Hancy(see below) in advance of placing or removing notices. A charge of £5:00 for 3 months display will be charged where appropriate. Information notices and those directly involving the use of the Hall will not incur a charge. Where notices have been placed without prior knowledge these may be removed.

Mobile Library

The mobile library stops at the village hall on alternate Tuesdays throughout the year, from 11.05 to 12.00 noon.

February Newsletter 2015

Postwick Hub Work

Shock news!  Oaks Lane still closed!  Rough estimate for reopening date at present: late March/early April. From the Hubworks Newsletter: “On the A1042 at the junction with Oaks Lane safety barriers have been installed in preparation to start excavation of the existing carriageway down to the new finished road level. Further significant traffic management will be required during the first few months of 2015 to enable the construction of the new roundabout with the first phase being the installation of single way working controlled by two way traffic lights which will be manually controlled during the peak period.”

Postwick Coffee Shop

Postwick Coffee Shop is on Tuesday mornings at the Village Hall between 10.30 and 12.00 noon. Why not come along for biscuits, cake and a chat?  (And some coffee?) N.B. Our Community Police Officers also usually put in an appearance here, so this is an opportunity for villagers to raise any issues informally which may concern the police.

Mobile Library

The mobile library stops at the village hall on alternate Tuesdays throughout the year, from 11.05 to 12.00 noon.

Please support the Library Bus, and you can always call in at the hall for coffee & cake and a chat (as above).  Forthcoming dates: 10/2; 24/2; 10/3; 24/3; 7/4; 21/4; 5/5; 19/5.
