Weather forecast…. met office

UK Outlook for Sunday 8 Jul 2018 to Tuesday 17 Jul 2018:

On Sunday much of the UK will be dry, very warm and potentially hot, with a good deal of sunshine. There is however a risk of cloudier and breezier conditions with some rain in the far north and northwest. Through the following week the largely dry, settled and very warm conditions are likely to continue in central and southern areas although some showery spells are possible, with a risk of thundery showers at times in the south and southwest. Cloudier conditions are likely in the northwest with a little rain, and with temperatures closer to normal. Towards the end of this period there may be change to more unsettled conditions across the north and northwest, but largely fine weather will probably continue elsewhere.


Finding the World Cup too nerve-wracking? Got a box of lights, bunting etc in the loft/shed that needs untangling for the street party?

Managed to untangle 10 sets of solar lights from each other while watching the football tonight. Get those boxes down for Saturday!

Penultimate planning meeting for 2018 party on Wednesday july 4th.

Hi all

The penultimate street party planning meeting is on wednesday, 8.30pm in the Coppermill beer garden. Please try to make it if you can. Things we’ll be discussing will include:

• Progress on ordering the final gazebo;

• What to do with the hay bales afterwards  – if elmfield people want any of them (for free!) after the event let us know now, otherwise we’ll have to start arranging to have them collected;

• Honesty bar logistics – bar rota, shopping list (drinks, reusable ‘glasses’, etc), bins/buckets we can use for cans etc, ice ideas for keeping cans etc cold – could people pop a couple of pop bottles filled with water in their freezers?

• Running order for the day – games, awards, raffle, djs etc;

• Re-creating the 1935 photo – we have a large version of the pic we can put in the original location all afternoon;

• Bake off update;

• Best garden competition update;

• Raffle prize donation info and ticket selling update;

• Asking if we can use neighbours bins to set up an area for recycling, food waste and general rubbish;

• Using the event to allow people to contribute ideas to local issues e.g. petition to get ‘sleeping policemen’ at each end of the road to calm traffic, ‘Blackboard’ for people to write ideas on that we can send to the council, st james big local, tfl etc;

• Update on no single use plastic and compostable plates, cutlery etc

• And more!

Any other important agenda ideas? Add them to the email list so we can check during the meeting.
