With the weather heating up in July, especially when it goes above 40 degrees (!!!) it is quite tiring being outside working, but like the stalwart troupers they are, our Volunteers are still going out every week working hard to keep our area neat and tidy.

The ‘Palm Troopers’ are out cutting back the overgrown trees, the Ground Workers are out mowing, watering, weeding and Joan is doing a marvellous job pruning the roses (at 7.30am!) in the Memorial Garden, on a Monday and they are looking lovely. Alan continues to look after the Post Room (which he does over the weekends) and I am sure all of us on Camposol A appreciate his efforts. We will not be having any ‘blitz’ clean ups during August, but these will start again in September when the weather is cooler.  

The ground surrounding the new Play Area has been cleared by the Council.  We are told that the Mayor is planning an official opening, but we do not have a date for this as yet.

We are sad to say that Rob, who many of you know and have passed at the top of the stairs for many years on Market Day, has ‘hung up his hat’. We are very grateful to Rob for all his hard work over the years.

We will be doing a Bucket Collection at some of the music events being held at Cat’s Bar on a Thursday afternoon and possibly a Raffle once a month.  We are grateful to all of you who contribute at these events which helps with our running costs.

Our Library will remain open through the summer months and is open from 10am-12.30pm.  We have a large selection of books for you to choose from.

I have been asked to remind you that if you have any large items to be collected by the  rubbish collectors could you leave these outside the bins the day before the collection dates which are the 1st and 16th of the month.  This will avoid the streets looking untidy for weeks at a time.

We are planning some social events for later in the year and these will be posted as soon they are finalised.  

Enjoy the summer and we thank you all for your continued support.
