SAFC season review 4 Council Meeting Information


At our recent Annual Council Meeting I was again asked to be the Chairman for a further 12 month and have agreed to undertake this role. I dearly wish to see the main tasks we have been pursuing for a number of months and years brought to fruition. These include the Wheeled/Skate Park, Library and the changes to our Community Centre. Phase 2 of the works at The Community Centre are now completed with the introduction of a catering facility in the Pavilion Bar. Whilst this facility will be fully up and running once the Library is moved we shall be launching our

Food offering in the near future. Once again this will bring much wanted revenue to pay the overhead costs of the Centre. We are to have a further Outdoor Music Event on the field in our Olympic Weekend. We are conscious of noise levels and have set up a monitoring system to ensure that it is not too intrusive to our Neighbours around the Playing Field. I hope you can come and join us celebrate the Olympic Event but if not please bear with us on the noise issue; its only on a few occasions during the year and is enjoyed by an awful lot of people.

Our desire to get some Allotments up and running in the Village is still at a planning stage, although hopefully we will be able to announce some more positive in the next month or so. This is the month of the Olympic Torch visiting Saxilby and judging by the Crowds on previous days we are going to get one of the biggest crowds we have ever seen on our Streets. Come out and support it; we are having a tidy up of the Village with the help of WLDC, so that it is a day we can all remember! WHATS ON IN SAXILBY

9th June Band Sahara & Supporting Disco

30th June Outdoor Music Event Abba Fever (Tribute band) And supporting act This is a ticketed event; tickets will cost £2.50 and will be available from the Pav Village Diamond Jubilee Project – a Lasting Legacy In 1953, the Village planted trees along Bridge Street by the side of the Foss Canal to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Sixty years later, the children of Saxilby Church of England Primary School are creating a tile mural to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of that event. The mural will be attached to the flood wall. The lifespan of the mural is over a lifetime, so the children will be able to share their efforts with their grandchildren. All 280 pupils are contributing to the project. They are being guided by Maggie Betley, one of the partners of Zoo Ceramics from Waddington, who have considerable experience in this type of project. The work began with all the children drawing a picture of their ideas of village life. Sections from these pictures have been used to create a 5metre by 1metre mural. All the children have spent three days during mid May sculpting individual tiles. The tiles were completed with a great deal of fun and mess; clay sticks to everything, including children! Following firing and glazing, Maggie has the job of mounting 280 tiles on the flood wall like an enormous jigsaw puzzle. It is hoped that the mural will be completed in time for the arrival of the Olympic Torch to the village on 28 June. The project has been led and funded by the Parish Council.

Parish Clerk Blog The grass cutting season is well and truly upon us and the wardens are out every day keeping the village looking smart and tidy. Unfortunately they are experiencing problems with cutting the grass verges when cars are parked on them. Therefore I am asking please can residents ensure that cars are not parked on the verges at any time - this is also causing damage which makes it difficult for the mowers to cut the grass evenly. The tubs around the village will be planted up within the next few weeks, we have entered into the best kept village competition again this year with judging taking place in June and July. Please help to keep your village tidy.

Saxilby Athletic Football Club Season Review 2011-2012 This season we have run teams ranging from under 7's through to men's in 5 different leagues In the Midlincs Youth League we had teams at under 7, 9, 2 at11s, 12, 13, 14 and15s The under 7's was run as a friendly league in which they performed very well, the rest of the leagues were very competitive with some strong sides throughout the county, all teams were a credit to their coaches and worked very hard getting some great results along the way. We ran two under nines teams one in the Kerry Youth League and the other in the Mid Lincs and I must congratulate in particular the Mid Lincs u9s coached by Stew Fox and John Allum who won their league after a play off with East Coast which they won 3-0 with goals from Niven Cameron, Nathan Allum and Kyle Fox . The under 18s intermediate league had a tough but good season with most the players being 16 it was a learning curve but will be stronger side next season. Men's Saturday side playing in the West Lindsey league finished mid table, but league has folded after 92 years and will play in the WJ Harrison league next season. Sills and Betteridge Sunday side secured a second promotion in 2 seasons finishing runners up in div 4 At Easter we had a trip to Spaarnwoude the villages twinning taking boys ageing from 12 to 14 year old to play in football tournament the boys did well and the dads did the village proud winning the friendship cup for the first time in 5 seasons and bringing it home ! In the next months we aim to become a Charter Standard club and move the club forward we will also be looking to get a new under7s team started any budding Roy Hodgson's in the village? interested mail Stewart on The Saturday men's side are also looking for players for coming season anyone currently playing or fancies dusting their boots off, mail Dave on or David on davidejohno@btinternet.con
