The Neighbourhood Plan

Neighbourhood Plan

It is really important that we get the views of all villagers before the Steering Group starts to write the Ravenstone Neighbourhood Plan. Please remember to complete and return your questionnaire if you want your voice to be heard. It is essential that they are all returned by 5th September at the very latest.

Contact any member of the Steering Committee if you have any problems.

Thank you

*******************************************************


The Church now has a lovely new kitchen,
and so we can all have a look (and maybe meet with friends for a chat at the same time), there is a coffee morning at 10.30 on the first Monday of each month, (except Bank Holidays).

The next few dates are:- 1st January, 5th February and 5th March 2018

Put them in your diary, take a break from the Monday morning chores and catch up with friends or maybe meet some new ones.
Spread the word and help to make it a big success.
See you all there.

The Fete 2017

Once again we were lucky with the weather and our fete, held in such a beautiful garden, was well attended.

Thank you to all who helped and made the day such a success.

.....................................................

Rehearsals are underway for this year's service on 17th December 2017 at 4pm. Anyone interested in joining the happy throng, please give Annie a ring on 07880 728732.

--------------------------------------------

The 2016 Carol Service was held on Sunday 18th December in the Church.

Annie MacGowan, Ravenstone's answer to Gareth Malone put her reputation on the line and came up trumps again, the choir was in good voice and made an admirable contrubution to the proceedings.

Our lovely church looked even more beautiful in candlelight

There is evidence that a community was present as early as the 11th Century. The Church Tower was built in 1250 and was probably built to serve that community. An Augustinian Priory was founded about the same time.

In 1940 there were 9 farms, a Unionist Chapel, a village store/post office, a blacksmith, 2 pubs and the Church. Only the farms and the Church remain today
