Rempstone Thanks For Village Funding

Caption: David Walker Chairman of Rempstone Parish Council receives a plaque to mark the donation of the village defibrillator from Sue Winch of IGas Energy with Martin Fgan, secretary of Community Heartbeat.

 


Rempstone has been benefitting from the generosity of organisations working in the area. Official thanks were made during the October monthly cofee morning.

The village defibrillator has been funded by IGas Energy who operate drilling sites in Rempstone.

East Midlands Airport has also stepped in with a donation from their community fund to provide over £650 worth of equipment for the Village Hall. The Hall which was itself funded by The Big Lottery Fund with support from Rushcliffe Borough Council, has been provided with money to provide additional equipment to help with the running of the Hall. Items purchased, include recycling bins, a steam cleaner and ice making machine.

The £2,650 donation from IGas Energy meant the defibrillator could be purchased, installed and training provided by Community Heartbeat.The donation was made through theIGasEnergy community fund under a scheme to work with parishes on projects adjacent to their sites.

The machine is positioned on the wall of the Village Hall in the centre of the village and could be of benefit not only to residents but people using the busy A6006.

Have you noticed the new look Rempstone name sign as you enter the village on the Wymeswold Road?

The cast metal sign reflects the village name board erected for the millenium and positioned outside the White Lion.

It is hoped that as funding allows, further new name signs will be positioned at the other junctions into the village, clearly defining a residential area for motorists

 

 

The Queen's Diamond Jubilee

The Diamond Jubilee, marking 60 years of The Queen’s reign was celebrated in Rempstone  on Sunday, June 3, 2012.

 

The Queen came to the throne on 6th February 1952 (her Coronation took place on 2nd June 1953).

 

Rempstone celebrated with a programme of events designed for all the residents of the village their families and friends.

 

Here we look back on a truly memorable day.......

 

 

Rempstone Celebrates the Jubilee with a Packed Day of Celebration

 

 

Rain on the parade did nothing to dampen the enthusiasm of the children of Rempstone when they gathered at All Saints Church for a mock Coronation at the start of the village's Diamond Jubilee celebrations.

 

The day started with a special service of celebration in a packed church  which included the crowning of  8-year-old Isabella Savage and the dedication of two commemorative Diamond Jubilee kneelers. The newly crowned Queen  and her consort,  Jacob Taylor led a  procession through the village to the Village Hall for the rest of the days festivities.

 

Torrential rain meant that the Great Picnic had to be moved indoors and after the Loyal Toast  villagers and their families  shared the very special lunch with a backdrop of a film of the 1953 Coronation. The afternoon continued with a fun dog show on the Welfare field -by this time the rain and wind had become torrential -but dogs and their owners paraded with enthusiasm.  The  planned sports  events had to be cancelled as the field had become too slippery but the judging of the Jubilee  art competition, tea and prize giving continued back in the Village Hall.

 

After a short break the evening events got underway. One of the famous Rempstone steam engines - Endeavour had been positioned  on the Old Road throughout the day and owner Michael Beeby  cooked two sacks of jacket potatoes in the boiler of the engine.   These were served  along with an extensive buffet for supper.  Live band Main Street  from East Leake provided the entertainment with music through the six decades of the Queen's reign.  

 

The day of festivities  came to a climax with a firework display on the Welfare Field.

 

Chairman of the Jubilee committee Jill Bryan said:" The weather was one factor we could not determine but we didn't allow it to spoil the celebrations . It has been a truly memorable day from seeing the packed church and looking across the village hall and seeing so many people coming together for the lunch and then in the evening when the Hall was packed with  people dancing and flag waving with the ages ranging from children to some of Rempstone's oldest residents."

 

She added:"So many  of the Village groups and individuals  came together to make this happen and it wouldn't  have been possible without the help and support of each and everyone. A  Diamond Jubilee programme has been given  to every household and  children under 16 have each been presented with a commemorative mug as lasting souvenirs of a day when the village celebrated 60 glorious years."
