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

Monday night saw 13 cars full of treasure hunters go head to head in trying to become the Hookfest treasure hunt champions. Cars returned with bags full of treasures and lots of smiling faces, all sure that they would be on the winning team.
It ended up a deat heat on scores with the Sommervilles taking this year’s title having completed the course just .2 miles over the target of 12.8 miles. They were also the only team to find all 7 of the post boxes on route, which was a great achievement as at least 3 of them were only visible if you had eyes in the back of your head, so well done guys.
Having checked, checked and checked again that all the clues made sense and all the question papers printed I looked on in horror as a skip had appeared in the school during the day, covering part of the answer to the first clue. I did manage to fox all teams with a double faced clock much to the disgust of all ?.
All teams did really well with just a few points between all teams and £73 was added to the play park fund at the end of the night.
Thanks to all who took part and also to all for the donations of the raffle prizes. Special thanks to Andrew Thomas for going over the route with me and helping out on the night.
Be warned next time I’m going to throw in a couple of stinkers and like this time you will need eyes in the back of your heads.
Tuesday sees a coffee morning at Hook Sports & Social club starting at 10.30am. There will also be an Art Exhibition by the Hook & District Art Club where a number of paintings by the group will be on display
