Hook History Society Exhibition

Please make every effort to attend this great event. An enormous effort has gone into producing this exhibition and it will be a great opportunity to learn a little more of the history of the fabulous village in which we live

Merlins Bridge Railway Bridge

Pembroke Road railway bridge replacement in Haverfordwest to be completed this weekend

Residents are reminded that essential work to replace Pembroke Road railway bridge will be completed this weekend.  

As part of the £4.25m upgrade project, over the weekend engineers will remove the existing rail track and bridge deck, which has been in place since 1937. The team will then fit a new, more resilient bridge structure and reinstate the track, as part of Network Rail’s Railway Upgrade Plan to improve the reliability of the railway.

To ensure teams can deliver the work as efficiently and as safely as possible, part of Pembroke Road will require a short, temporary closure between the railway bridge and Merlins Bridge Welfare Hall. 

The road will be closed to through traffic and pedestrians from 8pm on Friday 18 January 2019 until 6am on Monday 21 January.  Clay Lane will also be temporarily closed to all through traffic during this time.

Heating oil Syndicate

Following our item in the newsletter there has been a great response and we are looking to place our first order today. If anybody needs oil we have been given a price of 47.99 pence per litre + VAT at 5% which is a great saving on what you would pay doing an individual order. Anybody wishing to join our order please get in touch with me ASAP either by email Phil.griffiths@hookvillage.org or 07974180308

Heating oil syndicate

Would you be interested in joining a Hook heating oil syndicate?

There could be big savings to be made by joining up to form a group and ordering oil together to get a better price.

At today’s prices there would be a big saving with customers paying 49.8p per litre compared to 56.2p per litre on a 500 litre delivery

The oil market is a very volatile and prices change daily but this gives you an idea of the savings that could be made.

For the reduced price to kick in we would need to be able to order 4000+ litres at once this could be made up of 4 x 1000 litre orders or 8 x 500 litre orders it wouldn’t matter (please note 500 litres is the minimum delivery amount)

If you are interested and for more information please let me know at phil.griffiths@hookvillage.org

Hook Remembrance Service

This year sees the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War and we invite you all to attend our Remembrance Service which will be held at the Hook Miners Memorial Garden on Sunday 11th November with the service starting at 10:45am.

As in previous years the service will consist of a couple of readings and a prayer before the playing of the last post.

This will be followed by the laying of the wreaths by organisations, groups and families in remembrance of those who lost their lives.

Following the service there will be light refreshments in the club served by members of the Hook Forum.

Also on display in the club will be a collection of works created by local members of Hook Art Club.

We hope to see you all there

Village plan workshop with Planed

Don’t forget tonight is the 2nd village plan workshop with Planed.

Again it will give the opportunity for you to air your ideas of what you would like to see in the village.

Tonight’s meeting is at the Hook Sports & Social Club starting at 6:00pm. Refreshments will be provided

We hope to see you there.

Village Plan

Flyers have now been produced for the upcoming Village well-being plan which is being drawn up with the help of Planed.

Flyers will be delivered door to door this week throughout the village.

This is a fantastic opportunity to come along and voice your thoughts and ideas on what you would like to see in the village of Hook.

All ideas will be taken away and investigated before a village plan of aims and projects will be drawn up.

So if there is anything you would like to see in the village then please come along and let us know.

Our hope is that some ideas will be quickly adopted and up and running whilst any major projects and long term goals can be set as future targets.

So please come along and help shape the future of our wonderful village.

Hook Village Plan

Hook Community Council are pleased to be working again with PLANED on the Hook Village Plan.

We have arranged an initial meeting at Hook Sports & Social Club for Wednesday 10th October 2018 at 6:00pm.

The purpose of the evening is for residents to put forward ideas of what they would like to see in the village. All thoughts and ideas are welcome whether it be a fantastic new multi purpose play park or a few  daffodils to brighten up the village.

It is important that we get as many different views and ideas from as many villagers as possible so that PLANED can collate the information gathered before working with us on our updated Hook village plan.

Obviously we won’t be able to guarantee that all ideas will be implemented but we can prioritise what the village feels is needed most and set our targets from there.

This is a great opportunity to get your voice heard and we hope to see as many as possible attend.

There will be snacks and light refreshments provided free on the night

Spring/summer Black Diamond Newsletter

Hook Community Council would like to thank all those who were involved in producing, publishing and delivering the latest Black Diamond Newsletter. A huge amount of work goes into each issue of the Black Diamond newsletter and it continues to offer all clubs, groups and societies within the village an opportunity to let all residents know what they have been up to and what they have planned in the coming weeks and months. None of it would be possible without the endeavours of Jane & Geoff Hanbury who spend an enormous amount of time chasing up articles, editing and collating all this information before presenting it in an easy to read, informative publication.

If there is anybody who hasn’t received a copy there are spare copies available at Hook Shop & Post Office or Hook Sports Club. You can also read it online on the village website by clicking the link below
