Mrs Deborah Ongley, Beckley Main Street

Bank holiday Monday was the Friends of Beckley Church grand summer fete. Thank you to every body who work hard setting up on the day, giving up their time to help raise money for this village charity.

The subject of loud music has been brought up in conversations in the village. Villagers seem to be suffering especially in the summer when the windows are open. Also sound travels so you may not have any neighbours but it may be heard further than you think. No one minds the odd party, but loud music all night is just not fair on anyone. Please think about the volume before you dance the night away!

Beckley horticultural society is holding their autumn show on Saturday 21st September. All exhibits must be delivered to Beckley village centre between 10-11am. Doors will be locked and the Judging will take place. Doors are open again at 2pm. Then you can have a look if you have won. Stay for a cup of tea, coffee and homemade treats, Rons raffle and then the prize giving!
