Trafalgar Day - 21 October

Trafalgar Day Poster

Trafalgar Day
21st October 1805
To recognise Trafalgar Day on the 21st October, a Royal Naval Ensign will be flown from the village flag pole. Admiral Horatio Nelson led the British Fleet in the defeat of a combined French-Spanish fleet at Cape Trafalgar, off the coast of southern Spain. In one stroke, this naval action destroyed Napoleon's plans to invade Britain from across the channel. Nelson lost his life that day, 21st October 1805, but is justly immortalised as one of Britain's greatest heros.
Further reading on the life of Nelson & his heroic exploits can be found at bbc.co.uk/history/british/empire_seapower/trafalgar_01.shtml

What a turn out! At the two recent drop in sessions that were held at the Coffee Tavern to enable YOU, the Parishioner's, to shape the future of the village we had an around 225 people sharing their views and learning about what's been going on around planning in Central Bedfordshire. Even some of the residents who were "born and bred" took something away, even if it was a nostalgic view of the old village pictures around the walls of the Coffee Tavern.

We also had a return of around 340 public consultation questionnaires which is a resounding success, representing the views of around 30% plus response which is really great. We've analyzed the responses and summarized the various comments that you made and list below a flavour of the main results.
