Glebe Meadow honey has been selling like hot cakes but there’s loads left. This is honey from Starston bees in Glebe Meadow and all proceeds go to supporting Jubilee Hall. The honey is delicious, local and still £4 a jar! If you would like some jars then please contact Peter Grimble on 01379 852819 or Janet Broadhurst on 01379 853480 to arrange collection or delivery. Payment is by BACS or cash.
Due to Coronavirus, the Christian Aid street collection in May has been cancelled this year.
Starston has always supported Christian Aid very generously raising thousands of pounds for worthy projects around the world.
Urgent support for Christian Aid continues to be needed more than ever in developing countries, especially where medical aid is almost non-existent to help deal with the Coronavirus pandemic.
Donations to support Christian Aid’s life-giving projects can be made through their website: http://www.christianaid.org.uk
It is hoped that future fund raising events may take place later in the year.
If anyone knows who is fly tipping rubbish at the Jubilee Hall please contact one of the Trustees. Recently our black bin was filled with bricks, concrete and even an old chimney. We put the bin in the shed to try and stop this but this morning there were two big plastic sacks of rubbish, both very heavy and both very smelly, dumped in our car park so we’ve brought the bin out again – if we going have rubbish dumped on us, better it goes in a bin but we would prefer it to stop altogether.
When you are out and about in Starston please keep to the authorised footpaths – there are maps showing all the legal paths on the village website: https://bit.ly/2xlPOgc
In this fine weather many people are getting exercise where they can but a number of people have been going off the proper paths and using farm tracks, conservation headlands and private driveways. There are plenty of authorised footpaths around so please do not trespass on private land.
