Stansfield Village Hall Needs your Votes.


The Village Hall is asking for your help in voting to bag a share of Tesco’s bag fund
Stansfield Village Hall is bidding to bag a massive cash boost from the Tesco Bags of Help initiative.  Tesco teamed up with Groundwork to launch its community funding scheme, which sees grants of £4,000, £2,000 and £1,000 raised from carrier bag sales in Tesco stores awarded to local community projects. Three groups in every Tesco region have been shortlisted to receive the cash award and shoppers are being invited to head along to Tesco stores to vote for who they think should take away the top grant. Stansfield Village Hall is one of the groups on the shortlist with the money going towards the Children’s Playground Equipment Refurbishment.
Stansfield Village Hall has grants already for most of the equipment and work should be starting on the playground shortly thanks to the generosity of Havebury Housing Partnership, St Edmunds Borough Council and our own Parish Council, but your help in voting for us when you visit the Haverhill Tesco store, would help us to finish the playground without having to dig to deeply into Village Hall funds.
Voting is open in the Haverhill Tesco store in July and August 2018 and customers will cast their vote using a token given to them at the check-out in store each time they shop.
Alec Brown, Head of Community at Tesco, said: “Bags of Help has been a fantastic success and we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from customers. It’s such a special scheme because it’s local people who decide how the money will be spent in their community. There are some fantastic projects on the shortlists and we can’t wait to see these come to life in hundreds of communities.”

Groundwork’s National Chief Executive, Graham Duxbury, said: “Bags of Help continues to enable local communities up and down the UK to improve the local spaces and places that matter to them. The diversity of projects that are being funded shows that local communities have a passion to create something great in their area. We are pleased to be able to be a part of the journey and provide support and encouragement to help local communities thrive.”

No need to book, just turn up and try it out.

There have been several break-ins in the village lately, be vigiliant and be careful.

Here is some advice from Rural South Watch...

The change to GMT makes it more likely that working householders will only return home after dark. Not deploying lights and radios on time switches is to leave a clear signal to drive-by thieves that the house is unoccupied and awaiting burglary. Once thieves get to your front door and there is no sign of occupation, the outcome is almost certain.

Householders generally set such time switches after they have been burgled; but there is no need to wait to be burgled before you install 'son et lumiere' in your house!

If you are at home during the day at the edge of a village, please support your absent neighbours by reporting all unsolicited callers and cruising vehicles to 101.
