With Christmas drawing closer the annual Brown Edge Christmas lights competition is in full swing. Over 60 households have joined in this year and the early favourite is (photographed here) the bungalow in Church Road. There is still time of course for more entries.
Brown Edge Parish Council are seeking views of the parish with regard to purchasing the Holly Bush via their Facebook site. This is in line with government thinking as Local Government Minister Grant Shapps recently (3rd Nov) issued a new “rallying cry” to parish councils, to safeguard struggling village shops and pubs for the benefit of local people.
Mr Shapps also called on parish councils to use National Pubs Week to start a conversation with the community about any local pubs that are under threat, and how they can be saved for the community.
So the way is clear for your elected officers to retain this registered community asset.
