    Dear Friends and Neighbours

    Summer is here—despite the rain! There are lots of great events in our

    villages over the next couple of months. So why not join a coffee morning

    or go along to one of the concerts advertised. Lots of local groups rely on fundraising activities to keep them going so

    please support them where you can! Have fun in the Sun and stay safe

    Safely clean your Grill or BBQ With better weather upon us, it’s important to make sure our BBQ’s are clean and ready to use. Recent research recommends never using a metal-bristled brush to clean a BBQ. This is because the bristles easily come off the brush and stick to the surface of the BBQ. Bristles stick onto the food and get accidentally eaten! As they are so thin, they’re easy to miss if they’re stuck to food, and equally as difficult for medical staff to remove from someone’s mouth! So, what are the alternatives?  Using long-handled tongs with a crumpled-up

    ball of aluminium foil, gently removes burnt-on debris

     Run the BBQ really hot for a few minutes after cooking, most debris burn up and fall off by itself.

     Use a steam-cleaner, with or without a grill cleaning product

     Clean the BBQ several times to freshen it up

    New releases for Jun/Jul 2017

    A sensational mystery bestseller that has now been released as a 13 part Netflix series . At the front of the room, facing the students, will be the desk of Mr Porter. He’ll be the last to receive a package with no return address. And in the middle of the room, one desk to the left, will be the desk of Hannah Baker. Empty. You can't stop the future. You can't rewind the past. The only way to learn the secret... is to press play. Clay Jensen returns home from school one day to find a mysterious box with his name on it, outside his front door. Inside he discovers a series of cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker - his classmate and crush. Only, she committed suicide two weeks earlier. On the first tape, Hannah explains that there are 13 reasons why she did what she did - and Clay is one of them. If he listens, Clay will find out how he made the list - what he hears will change his life forever. I must admit that when I first came across the series on Netflix I was sceptical but if there was ever a book/series that can awaken us to the impact of bullying or how are actions/ words are interpreted by others -this is it!
