Parish Council Family Fun Day on the Millennium Green: Remember to mark your calendar NOW for the Fun Day launch event on Saturday 28th May! There will be many stalls and activities for everyone - especially the children. Please donate any unwanted Christmas presents for Tombola Prizes or to the White Elephant stall! We would also welcome any fabric remnants for bunting etc. The success of the day relies on the help and participation of many volunteers. If you can spare a few hours beforehand or on the day please contact Jan Mayling on 740880 or Shirley Taylor on 740551. The Parish Council website is parishes.lincolnshire.gov.uk/Tallington where more information can be found.
My apologies to the people who expected the Parish Council meeting to be held on 18th January. Unfortunately I did not learn of the changed date until after the Towers and Spires information had been sent in.
Flying the Flag: The flag was flown on Christmas Day by Ann Needham to celebrate Noel's 70th Birthday and again on 27th December by the Needham family to celebrate Aunt Iris's birthday. Please remember that you, too, can Fly the Flag to celebrate any occasion by contacting Wally Knox on 740268 - the cost is only £5 which goes towards the running costs of our Village Hall.
Post Office: Remember the Post Office is open every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon between 2 and 4pm in the Village Hall to anyone wishing to use it. Please try to, as your custom could make the difference between it staying open or - dreadful thought - our losing it.
