Litter Pick success …

… thanks to the volunteers who turned out on Saturday morning (29 Feb) having faith in the weather  forecast that the heavy rain would cease by the 10am start – which it did.  We only had one shower, and we ended in near-sunshine.

Numerous bags of litter were collected and stacked up for Amey to collect.

It is just a shame that it is necessary to do this.  Why can’t the litter louts put their cans, crisp packets and sweet wrappers in the litter bins?  There are plenty of them around.

Litter Pick is still on …

The weather forecast indicates that the rain should clear by 10am, so the Litter Pick will still go ahead.  Meet at 10 in the car park behind the Coop.  There remains a risk of showers so wear boots and suitable clothing.

Village Litter Pick

This Saturday 29 Feb.  Meet in the car park behind the coop at 10am. We have all the equipment that was bought last year, but you can bring your own. Please help. Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Village Clean-up

Saturday 29 February is the date for our next Village Clean-up with the intention of doing those areas that were inaccessible last summer due to undergrowth.  Meet at 10am in the car park behind the Coop.

Further details will be published on the Bagshot Society page.

Meet your Councillors

… and get answers to the questions that concern you.

Our annual “Meet the Councillors” Q&A session was held on Wednesday 22 January. The meeting was well attended and productive.

A fuller report will be published in the near future.

 

Orthodox Hotchpoch

Did you know that there is an Orthodox Christian  monastery just down the road at Brookwood?

The Saint Edward Brotherhood is a small monastic community established in 1982. Their church is the resting place of the relics of Saint Edward the Martyr – murdered King of England.

The Bagshot Society welcomed Fr Alexis from the Brotherhood to talk about, and answer questions on, the Orthodox Faith, the role of icons, and the Saint Edward Brotherhood on Wed 23rd October.  His informative and amusing talk was well received by a large aufdience.
