Last night (Wednesday) saw a very productive Community Council with a packed agenda.
Lucy Harold was co-opted onto the Community Council as our newest councillor and we are now back up to our full complement of 7 councillors. Welcome Lucy we look forward to working together in the coming months and years.
Dan Wynn from the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority came along to introduce himself having recently taken over as Warden covering our area. With public footpaths being one of the areas he covers, he invited the Community Council to contact him in the event of any problems with the footpaths in the village.
Mr & Mrs Wills from Hook Quay we’re also invited concerning joint access with the Community Council to land owned by Pembrokeshire County Council. It was the first time that the Community Council and the Wills’ have sat around the table over this matter and it seems both parties have been somewhat misled by PCC in the past.
We were happy to hear that Hook CP School has now received some new laptops for the use of the pupils and a date will be set for the official handover of a cheque from the Community Council towards the cost.
Hook Residents are reminded that all Community Council meetings are open for anybody to attend and any issues you may have within the village can be brought to the attention of any of the councillors at any time
All equipment will be supplied (soft ball will be used) why not come along and give it a go no experience necessary. Please let me know if you are interested. Details are on the poster. This is a free event organised by Hook Community Forum with a little help from Hook Cricket Club
Reminder that the Forum AGM and meeting will be on WEDNESDAY 30th January….Please note the change in the date.
The AGM will be at 7.15pm followed by the ordinary meeting. If there is anything that you would like to put on the agenda please let Marilyn know before Monday 21st January as she will send the agenda out during that week.
At the moment we need to find a Vice Chair. The current Chair & Secretary are willing to continue but it is in our best interests to rotate these roles, so if anyone is willing to put themselves forward for either roles please let me know. Marianne Edwards has only recently taken over as treasurer from Ann Welham.
The meetings are open to any member of the community so please pass the word around, especially as we are looking for new ideas to replace Hookfest in its current format.
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.email@example.com or 07974180308
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
There will be a meeting of the Hook Community Forum on Wednesday 7th November at 7:15pm at Hook Sports & Social Club.
The Hook Community Forum are an independent group set with the wellbeing of the village as their main aim. The hard working group is made up with representatives of a number of clubs and societies within the village and are always looking for new people to join in.
The meetings are very informal affairs with all attendees encouraged to put forward thoughts and ideas.
So please if you have an hour or so to spare come along and join in.
