Christian Aid

Christian Aid

Our Normanton on Soar fund-raising Afternoon Tea at the Village Hall has had to be cancelled – just at a time when Christian Aid needs to support poorer countries worldwide who are battling Coronavirus, providing basic things such as soap, clean water and medical supplies.

Therefore, as Government advice allows us one daily exercise, Normanton’s fund-raising event this year will be a plant sale outside two houses in Main Street – Iain & Beth Cumming (Number 7) and Barry & Gill Hilsdon (opposite the school).

Please donate any plants you can by leaving outside the gates of these houses. And to purchase any plants please leave a donation in the collection box. Do remember to stay at least two metres from anyone else that isn’t from your household.

Also, each year, a team of volunteers distribute donation envelopes to houses in the village. As we can’t do that this year, Jenny Drury in Sutton Bonington, has set up a Just Giving page for our two villages, to enable online donations. If you can help this very worthwhile cause, please click on:

Thank you so much.

Using our Churchyard

Due to Coronavirus, St James Church is temporarily closed.  Some people are using our Churchyard for their daily walk and quiet reflection & prayer, and they are very welcome to do so – it is a lovely peaceful place by the river.  Please keep at least 2 metres apart from others who may be doing the same thing or merely walking through the Churchyard.

Ditches are for water, not rubbish

Ditches are for water, not rubbish

Please - don't dump rubbish in drainage ditchesThe Parish Council has received various reports that garden refuse is being tipped into the drainage ditches in the village.

This is unfair to farmers and riparian landowners who are held responsible for the upkeep and free flowing of the drainage ditches by the Environment Agency and it then becomes their responsibility to remove the garden refuse.

Because of the recent increase in heavy rain the Environment Agency are now paying more attention to the condition of the drainage system and anybody found to be tipping rubbish of any sort will be treated as fly tipping and dealt with through the courts.

The Plough Inn

The Plough Inn

The Plough Inn (Bar and Restaurant) has beautiful river views, offering customers and guests delightful sights and scenes of the immediate area. The garden leads to the river and has moorings for boats.

The pub was, historically, a coaching inn and dates from the 17th Century. Truly, a warm greeting awaits – on this occasion by Darrell. The décor and ambience portray peace and relaxation.

Wines/drinks have something for all palates and gift vouchers are available – now there’s a thought! Parties and events can be easily arranged and accommodated, especially with the Plough having an attractive function room. Wedding receptions are a speciality and very popular, with the peaceful, venue setting..
