Admin: The latest newsletter is the correct one in spite of the date showing above as 8th May!
[07:48:29] Adrian Dale:

Have just delivered spare tulips to Brockfield House in Stanwick. They care for people living with dementia and like any sensory items that they can use to engage with residents. They’ll be helping some of them arrange the displays. Thanks Chris and Elaine!
[07:55:33] Resident023:

That is a very lovely thing to do! Well done Bloms and AD.
[08:02:13] Resident038:

Such a wonderful idea. 🌷🌷🌷
[08:05:11] Adrian Dale:

[08:06:41] Resident023:

Wow - been trying to get that stuff for ages!
[08:47:20] Brenda Elldred:

Adrian your podcast with the last post recording was also broadcast in our street, Nightingale Way in Higham for the 2 min silence- so thank you - it brought our neighbourhood together.
[08:48:46] Resident019:

Please could someone tell me what time Lancaster farm shop opens
[08:51:12] Resident097:

When its open 😉😂😂 But i told you that already
[08:53:40] Brenda Elldred:

Thank you Dudley - prayer is the essential discipline of our Christian lives and as you rightly say we also need to listen to the answer. Being still is an art we need to practice. Letting all thoughts and anxieties go and just sit still. Our Monday service offers that help to sit and listen. Anyone can join us through the evening podcast or on the website around 7pm.
[08:56:16] Resident052:

Hi Cathy Facebook page indicates 09.00 (approximately) hope that helps I know depending on Farm work it does vary slightly 👍
[08:57:54] Resident019:

Thanks for a great Podcast Dudley! You are absolutely right about the forgetting to listen to God's answer or not noticing when the answer is given to us often in slightly different ways to what we were asking for! Great music too 😃🎼

Hi would like to ask a question on behalf of a village resident who’s not in WhatsApp.

Can anyone recommend an exterior house painter. Whole outside of house plus windows as they are currently wooden. Although if anyone can recommend a replacement window firm locally that they have used she is considering getting them replaced if the price is right. Thanks.
[12:01:51] Resident055:

Replacement windows Higham windows speak to Justin
[12:02:13] Resident072:

I shall leave everything on the doorstep with names attached. At Redwood Raunds Road. Thank you all 😘

[13:13:35] Adrian Dale:

Ok just planning van run. There’s lots of stuff so could you help me by labelling things with the name of the recipient- just a piece of paper under it would help. I know where everyone lives. I’ll be starting at Lorraine’s with the plants and pallets if they’ll fit.
[13:13:58] Resident073:

Pallets are gone 😊
[13:19:01] Resident131:

How many gallons of alcohol to day can he do would be a better one to work out ... im game when the pubs open if you are !!
[20:02:45] Adrian Dale:

Lol ! They never question my three wine/beer carriers a week in LIDL as I am classed as a needy shopper!
[20:44:19] Resident127:

Hahaha!! Can't wait till the pub opens, if I had a pound every time someone said "the pubs good" I wouldn't have to pay for a drink for 6 months!

Party central down at the airstrip again, it’s an absolute joke. We cleaned up as we went through and now we are picking up cigarette packets
[21:31:04] Resident101:

Was just a couple of girls in an Audi there last night when we walked through on our walk.
[21:40:00] Resident131:

Yes, they are there again plus 5 other cars. Am trying to ring police but been on hold for ages and then told to leave a number for a call back. I even asked the girls nicely to please take their litter home with them. I wonder if their parents ask why they are out during lockdown. Never usually makes me cross but it has this evening.

A6, I just don’t understand it. I wanted to shout at them today that “this morning I put flowers on the grave of an airman from another Country who died for your freedom, just please go home it’s really not too much to ask”. But I didn’t, I would have only got upset and they are really not worth it.
[22:24:03] Resident127:

Don't upset yourselves, you can't account for those that have been brought up with little to no respect, try gentle persuasion and if that fails it's not worth getting involved with, just hope age assists them

Unfotunately a lot of todays society are too engrosed in their own little world to see the bigger picture, History to them is what happened last week, Education is something they picked up from the crap they read on facebook. They have no care for anyone or anything other than there own selfish existence
