Editor’s Letter...

Anyone for a mince pie? Or are you all full up? I hope Christmas Day went without a hitch! However, according to all the big Supermarkets Christmas TV adverts this year, that’s almost an impossibility! I was late to learn this new trick but I have banked it for next year, book your online shopping slot well in advance by ordering a minimum order then amend before the delivery date! I feel liberated, no more rushing through those packed aisles for me. What ever you have planned to celebrate New Year, I hope you have a good one, and all the very best wishes for 2013. The deadline for the February issue for advertising and articles is Wednesday 16th January. The February Arrow will be delivered from Friday 25th January 2013!

Happy New Year Michelle Sidebottom

Campaigners for lower speed limits near schools have launched a petition. Caroline Flint joined councillors and parents at Edlington Hill Top Primary School to launch the campaign. Caroline said: “The response from parents today was incredibly positive. The worry about safety was widespread – one parent even described how she was knocked over. At Edlington Hill Top lorries and cars come over the brow of the hill and are at the school before you know it. One parent talked about how difficult it is to cross when the crossing attendant isn’t there because of the speed of vehicles.

“So far over 30 schools and half of the parish councils in this constituency support reducing speed limits. I hope this petition is promoted widely and spurs the Council into doing something to improve road safety near schools. Action by Doncaster Council is long overdue.” Copies of the petition have been sent to every school. For more information on the Speed Limit campaign or to sign the petition online go to carolineflintdonvalley.com. Copy of the petition can be downloaded from the site. PHOTO: 20mph Now! Caroline Flint and Edlington & Warmsworth councillors joined parents to demand action over speed limits.

The weather was kind and a good number of all ages came to St Mary’s Christmas Fayre on 24th November 2012. The grotto was as lovely as ever and thrilled a good number of children. There were new games to play, superb cakes and treats, raffles, tombola, lunches and snacks; in fact plenty for all! £3200 was raised and, despite the economic situation, this was even more than the good result last year! A big thank you to all who came and to those who helped organise and run the event. Money will go to the Church Roof Appeal as work is still on-going.

News, News, News, News, News, News.. A Jigsaw Puzzle Library is held in the Stable Room, St. Mary’s Church on the 2nd Tuesday of each month and has been running since September by June Spencer and myself and has created quite a lot of interest. We have over 200 jigsaws which we hire out for £1 each and to be returned the following month. Tea, coffee and cakes are served for £1 and many folk come along for a browse round and to enjoy the company. All monies raised is to be donated to St Mary’s Church Roof Appeal. Here are the dates we are open: Tuesday 8 January, 12 February, 12 March, 9 April onwards. 10 – 12 noon. June and I also organise the Parish Luncheon Club held at the Newton Arms on the last Thursday of the month. This was a new venture started in January this year expecting around 20 folk but 37 turned up and each month numbers have increased to 45/50 and it is a huge success! It is surprising the comments we hear from people –the enjoyment of sharing a meal with many new friends – particularly those living on their own. The dates for the lunch are as follows: Meet at the Newton 12 for 12.30 and bookings are made in advance by telephoning either June 785759 or myself 782776. Thursday 31 January, 28 February, 28 March, 25 April and thereon. Both these events are part of our “Out Reach in the Community”. Non-profit making and purely run on a voluntary basis. Everyone is welcome.

Knit and Natter group We are delighted to welcome some new members to our Knit & Natter group at Warmsworth Community Library. We are still hoping more people will join us so please come along if you are able. The group meets each Thursday between 1.00pm and 3.00pm in the library and tea, coffee and cakes and biscuits are available. We urgently need donations of wool, so please, no matter how small, drop in what ever you can! Kind regards Tony Wormley

Warmsworth WI is now open. We meet at Warmsworth Community Centre on the first Thursday of each month 7-9 pm. New members are always welcome.

WARMSWORTH

CRICKET CLUB

To start this month’s update, I would just like to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year, from everyone associated with Warmsworth Cricket Club. Christmas is a busy time for everyone and that is no different for us, with plans being put into place to ensure that the Christmas celebrations go off with a bang! There is plenty to look forward too, with the children’s Christmas party just around the corner and the school disco planned for New Year’s Eve. We are always looking for new members, both playing and social, so if you are at a loose end over the festive season, or fancy a quiet pint one night, pop down and give our club a try. Reasonable prices, live football being shown and a warm and comfortable setting, what more could you want! Onto cricketing matters, and the Indoor League have reached their break in the season, and don’t have a game now till early January. The teams form has been up and down throughout and the lads have a win record of just fewer than 50%, not a bad effort from a young team competing in a competitive league. Keep up the good work in the New Year chaps. Just as a final point, we would like to welcome our new groundsman Doug Swann to the club. Doug has been working on sports pitches for many years and we are sure he will do a great job over the coming seasons at Warmsworth Cricket Club.
