Rampton Energy Group (REG)

“Rampton Energy Group (REG): Part of the Sustainable Parish Energy Group REG has been created to help you make informed purchasing decisions about a range of energy (and therefore cash) saving products. In addition, the group is also looking at other issues including food (and food waste), bulk fuel purchasing, energy-related grants etc. The group is open to anybody interested. Please contact

John Bateson (johnfbateson@nullgmail.com) or

John Garstang (john.garstang@nullbtinternet.com).

Details of the investigation of photovoltaic solar panels is available. Information, contacts and meeting details will be added to the village website in due course.”

(Newsletter Ed: As someone who has already been subjected to heavy pressure selling re roof solar panels I think this group will be a really useful resource for any one considering investing in this technology)

Coffee Morning: Welcome Home

In aid of Welcome Home from Hospital.

As you no doubt realise, many charities have been hit by the recent government cuts, no more so than Welcome Home from Hospital. This is a charity which supports vulnerable people being discharged from hospital , by helping with such things as shopping, light housework or taking prescriptions to the chemist. WHFH can also help clients sort out Aid Call, or a hot meals service. We are holding a coffee morning, with a bring-and-buy including cakes, in aid of this charity on 22nd Jan, and hope as many as possible can come.

Happy New Year ! Rampton Community Website is hopefully returning

Thanks to the kindness and generosity of two Rampton residents Steve Adams and Ian Spray, who are highly skilled in dark arts of computer science (!), it is quite possible that the Website could be re-launched early in the New Year. It is also hoped to retain the www.rampton.org link (courtesy David Hough).

The website would no longer be with The Local Channel, but the new Service Provider will be by courtesy of Steve and Ian.

It will take some time to rebuild the site from scratch, so initially only a few of the most visited pages will go online. Please let me know what you have missed from the old website, or if you have any suggestions, news items or events for the 2011 Diary, please let me know.

Many thanks, Trevor Millar, 10 Church End or trevormillar (at) mac.com

Village Hall News

The Village Hall Committee has raised enough money from its recent fund-raising to allow us to improve the lighting in the main hall. In the early part of February the strip fluorescent lighting will be replaced by dimmable fluorescents which will allow a much better control of light levels – bright for Art and Table Tennis, subdued for parties. We are also taking the opportunity to re-tape and skim the ceiling and have already replaced the small heater “under the arches” with a larger one. The hall will be closed for a couple of weeks, but we hope you’ll join us again soon when the work is done.
