The Voice, Walking Activities, Xmas Gifts

Dear All,

There has been an extension on the Advent Windows, due to the circuit being very popular. This means that they will continue to be illuminated until the 1st January 2021 and not 24th December 2020, as was originally planned.

Please find attached a leaflet informing you of the many activities which you can take part in during the Christmas season. Many of you may have received this in your letterbox in the past few days, but please forward to friends and family who may be interested.

Also attached is the Christmas edition of The Voice to keep you up to date with everything that is going on in the village.

Still available for sale are wooden items that our Shed Group have made, be they snowmen, reindeer, Christmas trees, bowls. Ideal for a handmade Christmas gift. You will find their stall at 7 Chisholme Close, (number 14 on the Advent Window trail).

My I take this opportunity to wish you all a very peaceful Christmas and a safe and happy year ahead.

With kind regards

Dear All,

Please see below a message from Pritesh Patel and attachments for the latest information on COVID-19.

Good Morning All,

I hope you are all keeping well. I just wanted to take this opportunity to send the last update of 2020.

I’ve firstly attached the most recent Bury weekly update which has a variety of information including case rates, vaccine updates, testing information and various other borough updates.

I’ve also attached a couple of ‘images’ which detail some of the mental wellbeing support that is available during the upcoming festive period through the Getting Help Line.

Kind regards

Pritesh

Thank you from our local charities

Dear All,

There is so much good work going on in support of those in need this year, which has proved to be very difficult one for many more people. Your support is very much appreciated.

Porch Boxes collection on Saturday 12th December

Thank you so much to everyone who donated to the Tottington Christmas collection for Porch Boxes. We received a massive 1865 items. Many local people will benefit from your generosity. Once again, thank you. 🎅🏻🎄

Diane

Just a reminder that it is Brandlesholme Community Foodbank, NOT Porch Boxes,  who are collecting egg boxes and shopping bags. Thank you.

The Little Fir Tree Appeal

You may remember a few weeks ago I sent a link for Just Giving, which has been set up by a few community groups (ourselves included) to support our local Foodbanks to deliver a ‘Christmas Food Box’ to those in need. This has enabled those of you who are unable to take goods to foodbanks yourself to make a donation on line.

I am pleased to report that £945 has been raised so far and wish to thank you for your support. Should you still wish to donate you can do so on this link   https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/little-fir-tree

One of the community leaders has been in touch with the publishers of “The Little Fir Tree” and has some of these books for sale at the price of £9.95. They have agreed that £5 of each sale will go towards our funding for local foodbanks. If you are interested in buying a book you can contact Rob from the Rammy Men Group on the following link  https://rammymen.org then click on ‘Little Fir Tree Appeal for more information.

Urgent request for Teenage Christmas Gifts

Please see attached flyer for more detail on how to support this worthy cause.

With Best Wishes,

Next Woodland Management

Hi Folks,

Paul Robinson is unavailable next Friday, so we have agreed to meet up on
Friday 18th December.

The plan is to meet at 10am at the Station Road entrance to Greenmount
Sidings and to clear the path from The Hub as far as we can towards
Tottington.

Hope you can join us.

In previous years we have gone to The Hub for a coffee and a chat on the
last event before Christmas. Let us hope the restrictions change and we can
do something, but…

Hope to see you then,

All the best,

Alistair
