Leaving a Parking Space for the village mobile Post Office

Parking Space for the village Post Office. On behalf of the village Post Van which comes to Nettlebed on a Monday and Thursday morning, can you please make sure you do not move the traffic cones placed in front of the village club (to the left). This place is reserved for the Post Office Van as it is the only place in the car park with a reliable WiFi signal (needed for card transactions). Malcolm from the club kindly puts out these cones every Monday and Thursday but recently it has been bought to our attention that people are moving these cones and parking there (thought to be dog walkers). Please, on behalf of this valuable resource please be considerate and kind. There are plenty of other parking spaces in the car park! Thank you for your time. ...

Nettlebed Art and Craft Show

Nettlebed Art Society members have taken the sad decision to cancel this year's Art and Craft Show, which was due to take place on 1st and 2nd August in Nettlebed Community School Hall. We will announce dates for next year later on when Covid-19 has abated. Meanwhile, whilst all are in isolation, there is a wonderful opportunity to be creative in preparation for 2021 so that we can put on the best show ever. We would like to thank all those who support us by advertising in our catalogue, and all of you who come and make purchases during the show. We apologise to all those charities and groups to whom we usually make a donation. Hopefully all will be back to normal next year. We can be contacted for further information via the nettlebed.org website...
