Carol Singing Postponed

The GHRA Carol Singing planned for Tuesday 12th December has unfortunately had to be postponed due to the treacherous conditions of the icy pathways.

The Carol Service will be going ahead on Tuesday 19th December with the same route as originally planned.

Apologies for any inconvenience but the safety of all is our first concern.

GHRA Coffee Morning Christmas Opening

The usual crew will be opening the Small Meeting Place for the Coffee Mornings as usual (10:00 till 12:00 noon)on Tuesday December 12th, and December 19th but they will be taking a rest over the Xmas week. The 2nd of January will see the first Coffee Morning of 2018.

The GHRA Coffee Mornings are still growing, as you can see from the pictures below.

It would be great to see more of those who are usually working attend if you can on any of these Tuesdays.

Thanks for your support

GHRA November Updates

Well here we are at the end of November, and one year since the Galley Hill Residents Association was formed. From an idea Councillor Mick Allsopp had to improve the community we have come a long way in a year, and we will continue to campaign to make Galley Hill the best place it can be.

One of the GHRA projects which is coming to fruition is the bench carving, turning a fallen tree near the park into a bench for the community. An idea which started with Councillor Mick Allsopp (yes him again) who wanted to see the historic old tree remain a part of Galley Hill after it fell. With our treasurer Roy helping to get the funding from the local council, the project is well on the way to completion as you can see below.

The bench is awaiting some designs from the local school children to finish it off. In addition to the bench there will be a slice of the tree marking historic moments in history coinciding with the rings of the trees growth.

The GHRA are also keen to get the residents involved in creating a community, and are planning events for the future. One of those events is a Christmas carol singing evening being arranged by our secretary Joy Sumner along with two of our Court Reps, Sue Fitch and Kate Nicholls. They are also being supported by the St. Mary St. Giles school choir on the night. There will be posters and fliers around but here is a preview with the details.

It would be great to see some more people out there singing along with them.

Thanks for all the support from everyone over the last 12 months, and we look forward to helping improve our local area and build our community into the future.

SMSG Christmas Concert

The head teacher of St Mary and St Giles School has asked the GHRA to help spread the word about an event that’s open to all to attend.  A Christmas concert will be held at the school on Sunday 17th December at 3pm.  Free to attend. 

It would be great to see the residents of Galley Hill support the school, and even better if we could all spread the word verbally too.
