Forget me Not Club
Mrs Betty Akers told members of her time as a nurse in Malta, showing slides.
The last meeting took the form of a celebration of Mrs Mycock's 80th birthday. The Club's harvest festival is on September 16th.
Parish Council
The proposed extra play area for small children was discussed and a site meeting fixed. It was decided not to work towards "Quality" status for the present, as there was no obvious advantage in it.
The Foolhardy Folk Circus is coming to the Recreation Ground on September 3rd.
Trees behind the War memorial need trimming, and the footpath by the cemetery is overgrown.
A large amount of correspondence was received, much of it from Government and of little interest.
Recent surfacing work by the Highways has been of poor quality; there is little point in covering holes and weeds with tar.
Plans for the new School Classroom were seen and passed.
The Sports And Social Club hiring agreement was renewed.
New Littler bins have been obtained for the recreation Ground.
A dead tree in Whittington recreation ground will be removed. The slide on Northwold Rec. is to be repaired. The trading Standards are

setting traps for the monkeys in the Old cemetery.
Village Hall
The balance in hand is 4,935. recent receipts include 1033 from the open garden day, and 240 from a bridge tournament. Applications for grants towards the renewal of the roof are to be made to Wren and the local Councils.
The Art Exhibition was a great success, raising around 600 and lots of interest both within and from outside the village.
More promises are needed for the "Auction of Promises" to be held in  October.
A special booking has been made with the North Pole to have Father Christmas visit Northwold with his sleigh on the evening of December 20th (weather permitting!).

Circus

We were delighted to welcome the Foolhardy Folk Circus for their performance under the Big Top on the Recreation Ground.
Called "The Almost ready Windmill", the performance was enjoyed by all. The trapeze acrobats were excellent, and there was some very good juggling, some very difficult. "The Chinese Pole" was a good new activity.
A fault in the speakers meant that the 'Fractured French' was hard to understand, and the 'Plot' difficult to follow. As with many events these days, the music was far too loud, uncomfortably so at times.
