                                                          We have seen a large amount of

Annual Parish Council Meeting
At the Annual Parish Council Meeting held on the 9th May 2011 the new Chairman, Councillor Mrs
Patricia Hopkins and Vice-Chairman Councillor Ms Sian Thompson were elected.

Parking on the Hilltop
The Parish Council has had numerous complaints about the condition of the Hilltop due to cars
parking on it. The Council has written to the owners of the cars that are parked there regularly
asking them not to park there but they are still doing so. Therefore, the Council want to know what
you think, some options open to us are bollards, changing the curb or a byelaw. A byelaw could be
put in place preventing people from parking on the Hilltop which would then give the Parish
Council authority to prosecute anyone who parks there. The Waddington Residents Association
have written to Highways requesting a parking layby on the Hilltop, this is something that the
Parish Council supports but we are aware that Highways do not have the money for this and
therefore we could offer to pay part of the costs towards one.
What do you think? Please let us know.

                               Queens Diamond Jubilee Celebrations

What do you think?
Would you attend some sort of celebration?
What sort of celebration would you like to see? Maybe something for the whole family.
Please let us know what you think, the Parish Council is here for the residents of the Village.


                     Local Resident - 90 Years Young

Rector’s Retirement
On the 30th September this year I shall be resigning as Rector of this parish after nearly nineteen
years and retiring from full time ministry in this diocese of nearly thirty-seven years. Judy and
myself are moving to southwest Scotland, a place where we have holidayed through the years. Of
course it is quite a disturbing time for us, having to both move and retire and we are grateful for
people‟s understanding at this time. We have agreed that the last formal Sunday service will be on
Sunday 25th September and I understand this is to be followed by a party/lunch in the village hall. It
is still too early to say fulsome things but I hope in the coming months there are opportunities for us
to catch up with each other. Please pray for Judy and myself as we work things through.

From the beginning of October the parish will go into a state of interregnum with formal
responsibility passing to the Rural Dean, Nick Buck. This will be a time when there will be the
opportunity to sort out the best direction for the parish given the current circumstances within the

Churchwarden Jo Duffield was admitted to the office of Churchwarden on the 4th of May. This is
an ancient office within the parish acting as a kind of trustee of church life. Jo volunteered and I
hope people can give her the support that she needs to be able to carry out her task effectively. We
hope that someone else can come forward to share the responsibility.

Cluster and Deanery. Increasingly in the coming years the cluster, a local group of parishes and
the deanery, a wider administrative area of the diocese, will become important in our life as a
church. Members of the congregation attended a Bible Study within the cluster and a teaching day
on “Healing” within the deanery. Hopefully these links increase the opportunities available as well
as being supportive of one another‟s church life.

When the Lights go on Again Concert 30th April. This was a successful event in every way
thanks to the organisational abilities of the Morrison family and to the beauty of the singing of
Amanda Morrison. The event raised over £1,000. An important effect was the way that we were

allowed to engage again with the emotions of the time by the way that Amanda so carefully sang.
Thank you to all who supported the important occasion.

Christian Aid Thanks to all who supported this event. Some collectors have found that year by
year you get to know people and as people know you so they are more open to giving. The amount
given to support some of those in this world with nearly nothing will be announced when it has all
been counted.

Dr John Adam It was good to see such a large congregation come to pay their respects to this able
doctor who served for so many years in this community. People came to pay tribute to his skill as a
general practitioner and to his decency as a person. Our thoughts are with Daphne and the family.

Parish Registers
                                 We pray for those who have died
                                  John Adam and Derek Leming
              May they rest in peace and rise in glory. We pray for those who mourn.

turned out, both sellers and buyers. Our next car boot sale is on Saturday 4th June, from 10am to
1pm at Waddington Village Hall. Refreshments will be available in the hall at reasonable price. If
you would like to book a pitch, please call Colin or Shirley on 721391. The cost is still £5 a pitch,

cars to expect and plan for; we can also phone you if we have to cancel for any reason. The

Waddington Air Show. We will be having our tombola stall at the Waddington Air Show again

Vandalism. Unfortunately, we have had to report a case of vandalism to one of our car boot
advertising boards to the police. It was the one near the cross roads traffic lights and the plywood
board was broken in two, not an easy task. These boards cost us about £20 each to make, not to
mention 3 or 4 hours work. We are a voluntary charity, working for no payment to help the
community, and any acts like this take vital funds away from purchasing equipment. If you see
anyone vandalising our boards, will you please report it to our local PCSO. Although this may
seem trivial, up to now vandalism to our boards in the village has cost us £60 from our funds.
