The First team have had a difficult month but their last home game so them record a well deserved win in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division at home to Ipswich      Wanderers .  We eon 2-0 courtesy of goals from Jack Brame and Reece Clarke.

St. Mary’s church ‘yarn bombed’

Knitted poppies affixed to a fine net and draped from the top of St Mary's church tower showing the wisp of almost invisible net starting at the top and widening as it falls down the tower covering the whole of the porch wall at the base.St. Mary’s church, Walsham-le-Willows, has been ‘yarn bombed’ overnight in the run up to Remembrance Day, with over 5000 hand-crafted red poppies now to be seen cascading from the bell tower and over the walls .

There are also 40 poppies on display inside the church commemorating the 40 men from Walsham who died in the First and Second World Wars and whose names are listed on the War Memorial in the churchyard.

Knitted poppies affixed to a fine net interspersed with some artificial leaf much like camouflage netting and draped from the top of the tall flint and brick wall to the side of St. Mary's church.Jan Hall, who led the project with the village British Legion representative Fiona Glover, has been overwhelmed by the response to their appeal to local, talented crafters to make the profusion of poppies that have been knitted and crocheted by more than 75 individuals to mark Armistice Day and raise funds for the British Legion Poppy Appeal.

Work in the hall is progressing very well and is currently running slightly ahead of schedule.  Insulation layers are being installed to each internal wall which will be about six inches thicker once the work is completed.

An initial stage payment representing 30% of the total project cost has now been made.  The three new windows have been ordered via the Parish Council and will be installed during the week commencing 6th November.  If work continues at this rate the hall may even be available again before Christmas!

Records of the Minutes going back to 2014 have been uploaded as have the Budget Reconciliation reports that are presented to Councillors at each meeting.  At the moment these go back to the beginning of the 2017/18 financial year.

All the documents are presented chronologically and in a searchable table.

 

Website upgrade and content updates

image of blue computer mouse with the usb lead spelling out the word 'upgrade'Web site capacity has been upgraded which will allow room for expansion with more content.  Other changes to content have been made including the amalgamating of the history page into one page as the sections by date were a bit clunky.  28 History Reviews have been added into a searchable table, the rest are to follow now that all the images on the History and Walks pages have been de-linked from the old site – it has taken a while as it is a very laborious process.  If you find any images that do not load please report them for correction.

image of three dimensional letters in blue each standing to form the word 'update' with and representation of the world globe to the leftNew pages have been added for the Adventure Playground, Toad Watch, the Allotments and Leisure Gardens Association, Drama Group and Thomas-Dawson Stage School.  Many of these will be updated further as content is agreed with the group organisers.

The page for ‘Churches’ has been split into two so that there is a separate page for St. Mary’s and the Congregational Church.

The downloadable pdf’s for the Walsham Walks have now all been added and have the Walsham-le-Willows logo.  This is an example for the Hartshall Lane Walk.

Going forward it is hoped that  information will be supplied so that the Sports Club Report can be added to the web site each month.
