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 Hub Work
Postwick Coffee Shop
Thank you to all who support the Coffee Shop and help raise funds for the village. As a result of this the Coffee Shop is planning to fund replacements for the worn out grey tables in the Hall. 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.
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: 10/3; 24/3; 7/4; 21/4; 5/5; 19/5.
Use it or lose it – the service is always under threat…
Mark Cocker Nature Talk
There was standing room only on 6th February when Mark Cocker delivered a talk on the wildlife of Blackwater Wood (adjacent to the Postwick wharf & Ferry Lane), of which he is the owner. Mark is a regular columnist for The Guardian, has his own blog and is the author of several books – the latest, Claxton: Field Notes from a Small Planet. Thank you to the Green Group for arranging this.
