Good News! New Team set to continue take over the running of the Pop-Up-Pub events. Those of you who were at the final event under the ‘existing management’ will have heard Roger Bartlett inform you that he was well advanced in putting together a new team to continue with the Pop-Up Pub events. We are delighted to inform you that the new team is in place and future monthly events are being planned on the third Friday of each month.  The first of these will be in time for the community to celebrate Christmas together and will take place on Friday 16 December at Marwood Church Hall as usual.

 

Malcolm Higdon, Chairman, thanks all those who have supported the events over the years and particularly the team who have run them - Terry Casey, Annemarie Shillito, Kevin Marsh and Steve Hattley. Also thanks to our regular helpers; Chris, Liz and Kim Neville and Stuart MacAllister.

 

He wishes Roger and the new team all the best for the future and hope that the support continues. Marwood Matters thanks Malcolm for his huge contribution to these very poplular community events.

Marwood Poor Lands Charity (including Ackland's Gift)

              A small annual income is obtained from the lease of 7.5 acres of land in Marwood.  Due to the continual social change, the reasons for applying for grants has changed, but the basics are similar; e.g. assist with the relief of sudden distress, sickness or infirmity; assistance with special payments; and now, particularly at this time, as a result of the Coronavirus.

                  If you wish to apply, or know someone who you think is eligible (please ensure you have their permission) contact: Malcolm J Measures (Trustee and Clerk to the Charity)  e-mail: marparco2@live.co.uk
