Easington - Down Your Way

Have your say

Seed Pods Little Helpers were out again planting Polyanthus in two of the Seaside Lane planters. They have also started on the 10 raised beds on the garage site with four being planted up with more to come. The volunteers from the Easington Community Garden, who are undertaking the plant and bulb planting, are asking parents to ensure that all their good work does not go to waste, to stop their children running over the planted flower beds. Next spring they will be nice and colourful and help the aim of the group which is, “To make Easington a Better and More Colourful Place to Live”. If anyone wants to be a Little Helper then you should either join the Easington Colliery in Bloom group or the Easington Community Garden. No experience or trowel necessary.

A New Year’s Eve Soul Night will be held in Easington Colliery Social Welfare Centre on December 31. Tickets are £5 on the door.

A Family Nativity and Christingle Service will be held in St Mary’s Church onThursday at 6pm. A Candlelit Service with communion will be held at 11.30pm.

Easington C of E Primary School thanked all those who purchased a biscuit towards the Toilet Twinning Project. They raised £53 which will be put towards twinning a toilet in school with a toilet in another country. The donation is used by Tearfund to provide clean water, basic sanitation, and hygiene education. This vital combination works together to prevent the spread of disease.

The Christingle service will be held at The Church of the Ascension on Christmas Eve at 4pm.

Planning has been approved for a SUDS pond to land to the east of Thorpe Road for Southland Management Ltd. A sustainable drainage system is designed to reduce the potential impact of new and existing developments with respect to surface water drainage discharges. This is to be put in place for future building works at Thorpe.

Pupils and parents from Easington C of E Primary School attended the Christmas Tree lighting at Seaton Holme. The blessing and countdown was by the Reverend Emma Parker and music by Bill Smithson. They all enjoyed refreshments in the Liddell Room afterwards

Residents had a lovely afternoon at Cafe Together and the Street Nativity (even the snow turned out). Thank you to everyone who helped. There were carols and crafts at the Colliery Chapel at and then journeyed up to the Church of the Ascension together for carols (led by the Salvation Army Band) and mince pies were served afterwards.
