Some fantastic news for the Village, Robin Skailes of Cropwell Bishop Creamery has advised us that there is now a defibrillator installed up at the diary which has been registered with the ambulance service.

It is available for our residents to use in case of an emergency by simply calling 999, the ambulance service will then give you the code to get into the defibrillator unit and take you from there.

The defibrillator is placed under the balcony on the outside wall of the dairy building so as you go up the drive it is just off to the right slightly facing you mounted on the outside wall.

The Parish Council would like to thank the creamery for this facility being open to all of our residents.

Rotary Club – 19th November 2014

This morning David Barton and Gerry Thompson from the Rotary Club visited school to present every member of Year 5 with an Illustrated English Dictionary. The Rotary Club is an organisation who raise money to help eradicate poverty and disease mostly in Africa, but also to help with projects nearer home such as providing school children with dictionaries. They have over 35,000 clubs world-wide with a membership of 1.2 million people and so we are very grateful that they help our pupils in this way.

Tree Planting to Commemorate Centenary of the First World War – 12th November 2014

Tree Planting  untitled

To commemorate the centenary of the First World War members of the School Council and Mr Palmer joined the Parish Council and Cllr Gordon Moore to plant a tree at the Old School. The tree is a Cherry Bird Watereri and is sited in the far left-hand corner of the grassy area beside the Old School.

The Councils hope this living legacy will serve as a reminder of the sacrifices made for our freedom for many years to come.

Boys Football – Wednesday 15th October 2014

Congratulations to the boy’s football team who won their football match against Sutton Bonnington School 6:0 in the Small Schools Cup.

Cropwell Bishop played Sutton Bonnington on Wednesday night. Sutton kicked off and had a good start until James did a fantastic through ball to Kye which ended up in the back of the net. James had a clearance/shot which had an awkward bounce then skimmed the crossbar. We came close to 2 – 0 but Louis, with a banger of a shot, hit the side netting. Also Daniel came close from a free kick but the keeper tipped it on the crossbar.

It was half time and John gave us a few tips. We went back on and Joseph scored from a tight angle to make it 2 – 0. There were various opportunities for both sides until Daniel nutmeged the keeper to make it 3 – 0. After a while, Sutton was caught on the break and Cropwell won a free kick near the half way line. Daniel took it and it was a low ball then Henry tapped it the other way so the keeper couldn’t reach the tap in. 4 – 0 Cropwell.

Kye had a brilliant run down the left wing Daniel crossed it in and Kye hit a spectacular volley in to the top corner. It looked like Cropwell had got it in the bag but then in the last 40 seconds Daniel extended the lead to make it 6 – 0. Eventually Connor blew the final whistle, Cropwell had won.
