Village Spring Clean – CANCELLED DUE TO SNOW – a new date will be published in the near future.
The Long Bredy and Kingston Russell annual village spring clean will take place on Saturday 3rd March 2018. Please assemble at the Village Hall at 10am.
It is advisable to wear stout shoes, wet weather gear and protective gloves. If you have a high visability vest, please wear it. Children are welcome if accompanied and supervised by an adult.
There will be refreshments available in the Village Hall after the clean-up is complete.
Do come along and keep the village litter-free and lovely!
Church Yard Maintenance
There will be a tidy-up of the church yard on March 24th at 10.00am, and any help with this will be greatly appreciated….however little or much time anyone has to give.
The church yard is looking beautiful with snowdrops at the moment, in some part because of the careful maintenance last year, which has allowed them to flourish.
It’s not all work, there will be refreshments available and it is a beautiful ,peaceful area to spend some time.
Easter Day falls on 1st April this year. We have a joint service with Littlebredy, taken by Archdeacon Paul. Anyone wishing to make an Easter Garden on a tray (adult of child) is very welcome to do so. Please leave it in the church with your name; there will be a prize for the best one.
Refreshments will be served after the service.
Spring Coffee Morning
There will be a Spring Coffee Morning in the Village Hall on April 21st, starting at 10:30am. There will be a plant stall, which has proved very popular over the last few years, so if you are sowing seed, taking cuttings or dividing plants in the coming weeks, any extras for the stall would be very gratefully received.
Superfast Broadband is coming to Long Bredy!
The new green cabinet serving Long Bredy residents with high speed broadband is situated near the entrance to Sands Farm. In the not too distant future this will go live. Please check https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/superfast for updates or register to be kept informed on progress.
Unfortunately, there are some residents within the parishes of Kingston Russell and Long Bredy who are not in any of the plans for superfast broadband . If you are one of these residents and are receiving less that 2Mbps, you might be eligible to apply for the Better Broadband Subsidy Scheme. This scheme provides residents with a subsidy towards the cost of installation of wireless or satellite broadband. You will be able to find more information about applying for the scheme on the website: https://www.dorsetforyou.gov.uk/broadband/better-broadband-scheme.
Long Bredy Village Hall now has a table tennis table. The hope is to organise some games, and even coaching if we have enough participants of secondary school age and older. We are especially keen to persuade adult new-comers to give it a try!
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can organise a time to meet.
