Village Litter Pick

We are holding the next village litter pick on Sunday 12th March. Meet at the green at 10.30am. We have a number of high viz jackets and litter pickers for use, but please bring gloves, and a wheelbarrow would be useful. Refreshments back at the hall afterwards. Many thanks.

Your Village Hall Needs You!

There are vacancies on the Village Hall Management Committee for anyone who would like to be involved in the up keep and running of the hall. The Committee, which meets on the forth Monday of each month, is made up of representatives from village organisations and elected members. We aim to have a maintenance morning once a month to carry our various jobs ranging from cleaning out gutters, raking leaves, cleaning walls etc which makes sure that our hall continually looks at its best.

The Committee is also responsible for organising refurbishment of the hall as required. For larger projects this involves applying for grants and other external funding. This summer the toilets will have a make over and the whole hall will be decorated inside and out. The work is not carried out by the Committee but by external contractors.

If you are interested and would like further details please contact Alison Bateson on alisonjbateson@nullgmail.com, tel: 01954 208045.

Brooks Williams returns for a fourth time to Rampton after his previous sell out appearances. The evening will be a feast of blues guitar, groove-laden songs and cheery banter.  A must for anyone who appreciates acoustic guitar playing at its best.

Ranked one of the Top 100 Acoustic Guitarists, singer-songwriter Brooks Williams writes and delivers his songs with an easy-going vocal style.  Walking the line between blues and Americana, Williams has worked stages worldwide for over 25 years, amassing a staggering back-catalogue of songs, recordings and tales.

“The masterly Brooks now proudly presents his latest solo set [New Everything], a typically classy mix of blues, raggy Americana and healthy new originals, impeccably played and sung as ever. Self-recommending and absolutely beyond criticism!” (fRoots)
