🏃‍♀️🏃🏃‍♂️

Just testing the water.

Would anyone in Ashdon be interested in going for an (occasional) cross country and / or road run locally?

Not a race ( around 8.5 mins / mile) not a marathon (usually between 5 and 9 miles) and most certainly no pressure - just getting out and keeping fit around the beautiful Ashdon area.

If interested please comment on here we will message you back…

Please see attached pictures from All Saints Church.

They advise that their collection was for EACH (East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices) and that “ we normally do presents but this year they asked for money due to Covid also a lot of the children there need specialist toys. We had Elaine a EACH volunteer come and talk to us this morning so we thought it would be a nice instead of having a collection people could take an envelope and place their money in there and hang on the tree.

This hopefully explains the reason for the envelopes on the tree..”

Put in an envelope to EACH and drop into the church, or The Vicarage Radwinter Road or Robert Gardner’s Meadowside,Church End. Thank you.

Do we just come up to the church to donate?

This is equally important in Ashdon. We have had reports of several “near misses” due to people walking in the road, in the dark, whilst wearing dark clothing and with no lights or hi visibility clothing.

Please take care and ensure that you can be seen…To Be Safe on our roads you need to Be Seen. If you are out walking in poor daylight conditions wear or carry something light coloured, bright or fluorescent. When it’s dark, use reflective materials which can include arm bands, jackets and footwear. If you are out walking with very young children please keep between them and the traffic and remember to hold hands.

And we have a near miss nearly every time we walk to school in our hi vis jackets and with lights in the winter months. People driving through the village ( many living in the village ) need to slow down and give a wide birth to walkers instead of worrying about getting mud on their tyres!!!

Maybe the footpath discussed or Street lights or a suitable speed calming mesures might work instead of asking pedestrians to adapt their behaviour.....

As a regular driver through the village and someone who lives in Ashdon I def think that people walking their dogs or not on footpaths should really think about the high vis or lights. I do not speed. The speed limit is a limit not a target but even still at 20mph you could seriously hurt someone who is walking in the road and is NOT visible. This isn’t a dig at people it’s a post to raise awareness to walkers to say you CANT always be seen and to take responsibility for your safety. Twice this week I have seen people walking up the road or walking their dog in the road and you really can’t see them until you are nearly on top of them . Thanks to the parish council to raising awareness of this by posting xxx

And also when riding bikes please. Drivers want to drive safely. I know some drive really fast (probably not from the village as they don’t seem to know the road/bends you can’t see round/lack of footpaths/thin footpaths judging by how fast they go) but those of us that try to drive safely want to see you all xx

I just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone in the village who came to the Wreath Workshop night to raise money for the school PTA.

We raised over £550 which is incredible! A much needed kickstart to our fundraising efforts after two very difficult years.

This money will go towards new technology and supporting class trips and events.

A huge thank you from myself - Elly’s Flower Studio / PTA Treasurer!
