Other News

Next Meeting: 6th April 2020 at 19:00 - details to be confirmed

Corona Virus Corvid19: Some of our committee meetings will be cancelled or delayed as a result. The April meeting is still due to go ahead but is dependant on Government directives and current legislation. We will post information as it is available. (Link to Government guidelines)

Roy Garner: We are sorry to announce the death of Roy Garner who passed away at the age of 92. Roy served as clerk to the parish council for nearly 50 years from 1960 until his retirement in 2009. During his tenure he saw the population of the parish expand considerably, the building of the Marston Ferry Road, the demise of many of the local pubs, as well as many other local events. In respect of his service to the council, the new pavilion in Boults Lane was named "The Roy Garner Pavilion", as he played a major part in helping fund the project with his prudent budgeting and sage guidance. Our thoughts are with his family at this time.

Messy Church: Church Hall in Elsfield Road expected on Sunday 21 June from 10:00 till 11:15 (dependent on current situation) - all welcome and it is free - there are fun activities, refreshments, music, crafts, for all ages - contact the church office for more information or just turn up

Litterpick: thank you to all our volunteers who joined us on Saturday 29th - we are hoping to do another event a little later this year

Other Events: Please let us know if there are any events in Old Marston for the whole community as we can advertise them here
