Blythe Bridge & Forsbrook Charity Fayre

At Foxfield Railway on Saturday 1st July 2017

This event is now in its 2nd year and the idea behind it is to raise both funds & awareness for all local charities and for the whole community from the young to the elderly and families. There are more and more groups, clubs and established organisations who need your help in maintaining their roles in the ever expanding voluntary sector. These groups, all locally based, will both be at the event to raise funds directly and / or may benefit from any surplus generated from this event.

Community Speed Watch

Forsbrook Parish Council has recently secured funding from County Councillor William Day for a community speed watch. The funding of approx. £900 has funded the equipment and training for volunteers to staff a community speed watch at certain points through the Parish. We now need approximately five volunteers who would be prepared to undertake a day’s training with the police and give up a few hours a month (maximum) in carrying out the speed watch. If you are interested could you pm me with your details and once we have training dates I will be back in touch. If in the unlikely event that we have too many volunteers I will have to choose on a first come basis.
