Residents are being asked to give their views in six consultations which are open till 23 November 2020.
Results will be collated and we will let you know about them through this website and in a future issue of the Chronicle.
The consultations are about various important matters in and around our villages including traffic and parking problems in Coxhoe and along Cornforth Lane, Quarrington Hill Churchyard and neighbourhood planning in each village. There is a page on each survey which gives more information. You can find and take part in the surveys on the Consulting our Communities page.
This year, we are not able to hold the usual commemoration events in our villages. Keeping our communities safe is paramount.
Whilst a minister will lay a wreath on Remembrance Sunday at 11:00 in Coxhoe and follow the Act of Remembrance observing two minutes’ silence, we, and many other communities reluctantly are asking you to Remember from Home, and, respectfully, please do not come to our War Memorials at 11:00.
If you wish to pay your respects, we ask people to please stagger visits across the days around Remembrance. We have worked with Coxhoe Village Hall and Coxhoe Primary School to make the poppy display pictured left, at the Village Hall, and the flagpole features a special ‘Lest We Forget’ flag. Thank you to everyone involved.
Instead, please try to display a poster and Remember from your home or your doorstep at 11.00 on Remembrance Sunday.
You may wish to recite the Act of Remembrance at home or on your doorstep at 11:00:
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
The Last Post would usually be sounded, followed by a two Minute Silence, which we ask all our communities to observe together. Reveille is then usually sounded, followed by The Kohima Epitaph:
When you go home, tell them of us and say,
For your tomorrow, we gave our today.
You can download poppy posters from www.britishlegion.org.uk.
Stay Safe, but please Remember.
Lest We Forget.

The Parish Council’s Youth Clubs have continued to meet throughout the Coronavirus crisis, with staff offering weekly online clubs with young people and a whole range of different activities on social media from sports challenges and science activities to arts and crafts and quizzes.
We are hoping to bring face to face clubs back soon, though they might look a bit different to before, as some activities won’t be able to take place and sessions will need to be pre-booked to limit numbers.
Our dedicated staff team are looking forward to welcoming young people back to the clubs. There will be more information on our website and social media soon. For more information on our clubs please look at the Children and Young People pages.
The Parish Council is to hold an Extraordinary Meeting by Zoom, to discuss Quarrington Hill Churchyard.
