A Happy New Year from the Creaton Walking Group!

We hope to see you out walking with us this year. Already 2019 has got off to a flying start with 2 walks in January: the traditional New Year’s Day walk which blew away the cobwebs from the night before and the regular monthly walk. It was good to see the changing seasons close up and to search for tiny signs of spring!

If you enjoy exploring our beautiful countryside on foot, meet at the lychgate at 10am on the second Saturday of the month. Walks are circular and about 8 miles in length, finishing with an optional pub lunch. The next walks are on:

Saturday 9 February

Saturday 9 March

Creaton Village Shop

The Village Shop has had a busy time of late and the members of the Management Committee like to keep everybody on their toes and not least Patsy Hollingum the Volunteer Director. Always on the look out for people to help the shop to function,  this time Patsy is on the hunt for volunteers to help keep the place looking spic and span.  

This job doesn’t require till training, just a little elbow grease. If you are a willing worker and could give a thorough clean to shelves and hard-to-reach corners like the skirting boards, please get in touch. Patsy says that ideally, we need people who could work a couple of hours a week, in half hour or hour-long sessions on Sunday mornings or early on a week day.

Behind the counter the wonderful team of helpers serve customers and Patsy is always looking for more volunteers to swell the numbers—the shop is open about 70 hours a week!.

Students over the age of 14 can cover post-school or college slots, and also help out at weekends. The upper age limit is 120, so if you fall into that age bracket and would like to help, please get in touch with Patsy.

Or, you could ask in the shop and speak to the volunteer who serves you to get the low-down on working there, straight from the horse’s mouth. It is a great way to support the community and it’s fun. Shop serving sessions are 2 hours long, or longer if it fits in with your day. The timetable allows for great flexibility.

For more details please ask in the shop or contact Patsy on 07876 690348 or email her at

A massive ‘thank you’ from the Creaton Singers for your support during December and for your charity contributions.

The Singers were delighted to sing at Welford Christmas Tree Farm adding to the festive atmosphere.

Then the annual singing on the Village Green took place followed by a carol concert in the

Village Hall.

Many thanks to everyone who came and supported us and a huge thank you for the generous donations of gifts and £151.16 to buy toiletries for the Food Bank.

The Food Bank were most grateful, especially as toiletries are often forgotten about when people so generously give. Delivering the items to the Food Bank was a stark reminder of how lucky we are and how we are all just one step away from needing the Food Bank ourselves. Thank goodness for the people who run Food Banks.

The Creaton Singers wish everyone a very Happy New Year and look forward to performing for you again soon.
