Bilton news – December 5
St John’s and St Luke’s Christmas Fair: to be held at St Luke’s Church, Franklin Square on Saturday, December 7 from 10.30am-1pm. There will be many stalls including jewellery, crafts, jam, cakes and books, plus a raffle and tombola. Light lunches and lovely deserts available. Admission £1 includes tea/coffee.
Decision time: the Trustees of Woodfield Millennium Green are considering closing the Green and giving the land back to the Council. Why? Because the site is often vandalised and used as a rubbish tip or dog lavatory and local people who use the green do not help to maintain it. The trustees see no point in putting effort and money into a project that is not wanted. Anyone who would like to have a say about this should go to a meeting at Woodfield Millennium Green, on the corner of Cecil Street and Albany Avenue on Saturday, December 7 at 11am. The trustees will make their final decision at the end of the year.
Coffee morning: on Saturday, December 7 at Bilton Area Methodist Church 10-11.30am. The host this month is BIlton Area Methodist Lunch Club. All are welcome. The church is on Skipton Road with the main entrance and car park at the rear off Bar Place.
