18 October 2020Remembrance Service, Otterburn - 8 November, 2020
Given the Coronvirus pandemic the Remembrance Service this year will have to be a bit different to ensure social distancing.
The service will held outside on the area next to the church, starting 10:30. Elaine Ryder will be doing much of the set up but due to other commitments is seeking some assistance on the day before the service begins.
Elaine is looking for 3 or 4 people who can help on the morning to act as ‘guides’ to those arriving to:-
- ensure the car park is kept for disabled badge holders only
- guide people onto the grass in a socially-distanced way, reminding them to wear a face-covering, and pointing them to programmes and donation buckets
- guide wreath-bearers to seats at the front, from where they will leave to go across to the hall
- welcome the cornet player and guide him to his seat.
If you are available and able to assist please can you contact Elaine on 01830 520212 or at firstname.lastname@example.org

17 September 2020Elsdon village green bonfire / fireworks cancellation
At the recent Elsdon Parish Council meeting the Parish Councillors made the decision that sadly the bonfire & fireworks event on Elsdon village green would have to be cancelled this year.
The decision was made following the most recent government social distancing instructions.
The event has run for many years, always on 5 November, and is popular with many from the local communities. Unfortunately with the increasing level of Covid19 cases the Councillors were concerned about the health and safety of local residents and have decided to cancel the event until 2021.
