Serving the communities of Abridge& Lambourne End

Welcome to the May report from Lambourne Parish Council.

The weather certainly seems nicer as the sun has been out and warm for at least the first half of the Easter Weekend.

Lambourne Parish Council Facebook Page.The Parish Council has set up a Facebook page to help keep residents up-to-date with Council news. This will share Posts on to the Abridge Community FB page but please follow and like our posts.

The Facebook page is not for people to comment about local problems and issues. It is there for information and most Posts will not have Comments switched on. If you have an issue you would like to raise with the Parish Council you can do this either by contacting the Clerk or coming to one of the monthly Council meeting which are always advertised on Facebook.

Queens Platinum Jubilee Celebrations The Beacon on the field will be lit on the Thursday evening along with others all over the country and commonwealth. Local residents are invited to the hall where the bar will be open and this ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ event can be celebrated.

On the Sunday a group of residents are arranging a big street party on the Pancroft ring. Hopefully the road will be closed off and the weather will be nice so that the kids of the Parish can have a lovely time. Keep an eye out for more details in the May Linkup and on the Abridge Community Page.

Defibrillators in the Parish The Council are trying to organise familiarisation training on the Defibrillators. If anybody knows of a trainer please contact the Clerk. Could you also email the Clerk your interest so there is an idea of how many want this?
