We should let you know that 2 people have access to edit this website. There's  two of the Councillors - Neil Hobbs and Steve Ashton.  Steve has done most of the work in designing the site, expanding it and updating it. Without his time and his expertise things would have progressed much more slowly.

The Pop-up pub has smashed it again. Thanks to your support over £2000 worth of drinks were sold making £1250 of clear profit after paying for the drinks in favour of Melbourne school funds. Thanks to the friends of the school who looked very festive in their Santa outfits

£303.30 was collected for St Mary's Church as a result of the carol singing around the village on 17th December.  This was an excellent achievement so thank you to all those who welcomed the singers and gave so generously and especial thanks to those who provided much needed refreshment en route.

Lighting the Christmas Tree: This year Eliza Hutchinson was the lucky child to switch on the lights. The carol singing was very good and well attended with mulled wine and mince pies enjoyed by everyone. £75 was raised for St Martin's Children's Hospice. Thank you to everyone who came and made the event so enjoyable.

Thank you to All who attended the Pop up Pub in Storwood on Friday 23rd. Together we have raised over £500 which is a fantastic amount and up from this time last year. 
Heather Verity has volunteered to check the accounting and distribute the funds to the two charities (Yorkshire Air Ambulance and Macmillan Nurses), so the exact amount will be published ASAP. 
Thank you again and we hope to see you on the 21st December when the Friends of Melbourne school will be taking the reins (dressed in Santa suits I hear!)

Note from Julie Nickolson regarding the Flower Festival to mark the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War;
Thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who helped and came, to the Remembrance Commemorations in the village. The church has very kindly given their share of the donations back to the fund, to go to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and The Royal British Legion. Which is amazing. So today I have had great pleasure in writing 2 cheques for £1046.70 each. Absolutely fantastic.
(An Image Gallery will be available on this website soon.)
