Linton Memorial Hall – 2017 Annual General Meeting

Our AGM will be held on Thursday 15th June at 7.30pm at Linton Memorial
Hall and as usual all Linton residents are invited to come along.

These are challenging times for the Memorial Hall, with a new roof a
necessity along with a replacement kitchen and boiler & heating system
being required. We will provide an update on these projects and the
funding position at the AGM.

Refreshments will be provided and we look forward to seeing you there.

Litter pick

Anyone driving or walking along Trip Lane will recognise this picture

It is by far the worst area in our lovely village for dumping litter. We have 8 sets of equipment and are looking for anyone to give any time from now until Easter to rid our village of rubbish.

Choose to help for 30 minutes or all morning, any morning or any time to suit you! We aim to cover all our village including bridleways and country footpaths.

Please ring Parish Councillor Angela Martin to arrange.07720717412

Linton Village Green grant application..we need your help NOW!!

During March, until April 29th Linton has a grant application running in Tesco Express Collingham. Drop in and ask for a blue token, then drop it in our Linton village green box. We are applying for a grant and should we have the most tokens after this time, we win, we will have £5,000 to spend on shrubs and hedging within our newly created village green.

So remember every time you’re in store shopping, or make a special trip, and tell all your friends to help get behind this….and we can win this for the benefit of both our communities
