Christmas Carols & Brass Band, 23rd December 2016 - Cancellation

Just prior to the event, the Parish Council were contacted by the Brass Band cancelling the booking due to the bad weather; with such short notice the Parish Council did put cancellation notices on the Eaton Bray website/facebook pages and also asked others, if able, to let people know. Obviously with such short notice we were unable to inform everyone. The Parish Council were very disappointed with this cancellation, especially after the work that had been put in. Hopefully next year the weather will not cause any issues and the event will once again run.

Car Park Markings: Recreation Ground

The Council are in the process of painting car park marking in the recreation ground car park. Planned work due December/January.

The Council are to look into this matter further and report back their findings.
