/ Police Alerts
Police Connect, which is responsible for issuing
Police Alerts (Homewatch) message has recently announced
that due to the introduction of new software, a
reduced service has resulted in terms of its crime
Of the recent Police Alert messages received between
the last website update and this one, no crime within
Ashby St Mary has been reported but an unsuccessful
break-in attempt took place in mid October in the
neighbouring parish of at Cookes Road.
More Ashby History and a discovery
Marianne Grayson, nee Chalcraft, who used
to live at Ashby Rectory when
her father was the vicar, recently contacted the
parish council with some Ashby history information.
Like another Ashby resident, she had also found
an axehead - behind Ashby church - in 1975. For
more details and some photos go to the HISTORY page.
Village Hall teamwork [with thanks
to Angie Broadberry]
and Thurton Village Hall's Management Committee
is a very active group of people which has
benefitted from enthusiastic new members joining
the team at the 2015 AGM. We
have recently welcomed a second offer of painting
inside the hall by a team from Aviva and the
hallway and toilets have all been redecorated...with
our grateful thanks. Committee
work parties have also been arranged - all
for the benefit of the hall and its users.
One was to provide new bark for the children's
play area...and despite torrential rain the
team carried on regardless and as the photo
shows really pulled together!
Now we are looking forward to the future and
as ever welcome suggestions, ideas and involvement
from all who live in our villages.
