“Men in Sheds”

A project which works to fight loneliness in later life with the help of carpentry has been launched in Burton. “Men in Sheds”, a project originally launched by Age UK, sees men aged 60 and over meet and socialise while learning woodwork skills and renovating old furniture.

Horninglow and Eton Parish Council has now launched a “Men in Sheds” project in a shipping container in St Luke's Park for both men and women over 50 years old, feeling lonely and who would like to learn woodwork. Councillor Clive Keen, chairman of Horninglow and Eton Parish Council and organiser of the Men in Sheds project, said that several men and women from the area have already signed up to take part. The 69-year-old said: "This is all part of trying to reduce the loneliness and isolation of older people in our community. I hope that people will come along and learn how to repair things like tables with a broken leg, or reupholster chairs, and then put this furniture back into circulation for people who have not got very much".

Councillor Keen will be teaching people woodwork at the shed as he worked at a wood yard in Burton for six years before he retired in 2007.

Highway defect reporting - the Staffordshire County Council Hightways call centre is no longer accepting e-mails as a way of reporting defects.  Please ring 0300 111 8000 or use the ‘Report it’ page, where photos can be attached,  or the ‘Mystaffs’app page with separate links to download the app through Google Play store of iTunes. Once reported this goes straight to the system ready to be directed to the correct team without going through the call center.

There are 18 miles of public paths/bridle ways in the Parish of Anslow.  Volunteers to help keep these passable and also volunteers to help collect roadside litter are being sought by the Parish Council

Police Contact Advice:

Telephone 999 in an emergency where there is a danger to life or a crime is in progress.

We should like to express our sincere thanks to Councillor Bob Fraser, Councillor Simon Gaskin and Councillor Duncan Goodfellow for funding the village hall £500 each towards cavity wall insulation.

We should also like to acknowledge a grant of £1,000 from Western Power Distribution Community Chest which has helped fund the installation of uVPC doors to the kitchen and one of the main double door exits.

These energy efficient measures will hopefully make the hall more comfortable for users and reduce our carbon footprint.

Congratulations to HM The Queen in her 90th year
