Thank you to local company.

Edenthorpe Sign back in place.

A huge hank you to Kane Fairclough and Michael Hope of 3 Elements construction Ltd. These guys have put Edenthorpe back on the map. The Edenthorpe entrance sign on Doncaster Rd was taken down last year by Michael Hope as it had become warped by the weather. He has had this straightened and the sign was put back by Kane yesterday. In addition, Kane has installed a water tap from Edenthorpe Allotments into the new Eden G Community Gardens for no charge whatsoever. Thank you so much 🙂 great guys, great village. 👏👍💪

Census 2021

Its time to be counted!

Ready, steady, census

Households across Doncaster will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.

The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.

Census day is Sunday 21 March 2021 and it will be the first to be run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets from early March.

“A successful census will ensure everyone from local government to charities can put services and funding in the places where they are most needed,” Iain Bell, deputy national statistician at the Office for National Statistics, said.

“This could mean things like doctors’ surgeries, schools and new transport routes. That’s why it is so important everyone takes part and we have made it easier for people to do so online on any device, with help and paper questionnaires for those that need them.”

The census will include questions about your sex, age, work, health, education, household size and ethnicity. For the first time, there will be a question asking people whether they have served in the armed forces, as well as voluntary questions for those aged 16 and over on sexual orientation and gender identity.

Results will be available within 12 months, and personal records will be locked away for 100 years, kept safe for future generations.

There are also full and part time job opportunities available in Doncaster, please see https://www.censusjobs.co.uk/ for more information and to apply.

For more information on how the census works and can benefit our community visit www.census.gov.uk or contact Laurance.green11@field.census.gov.uk 07452 940363

Message from Thorne Rural Lions

Announcement due to Covid-19 Pandemic.

It is with the greatest regret that Thorne Rural Lions have had to make the decision to cancel our activities  for 2020.

Our Lions members have spent much of 2020 working on the sleigh for this year, our plans start early in the year & whist we explored every possibility  this year it has been decided that it would not be safe for the public or the volunteers to take the sleigh out.

One idea was to go out with a minimum team with Santa ,a driver+ 4 others with no collections & ask the public to wave from their doorsteps or windows , most would ,some would not.

We cover such a large area &we could not risk spreading the disease from one area to another.

It’s just one year & they will be many more, Hugely disappointing, not just for you but for us too, if people were to gather we could be accused of encouraging it, which would the covid  regulations in place & we could not risk a heavy or other & yesterday we were told that we wouldn’t get  insurance.

As Lions we are devastated  for not only that Santa on the sleigh brings joy & happiness to thousands of people in our communities but it is also our main fundraiser for to support our humanitarian for throughout the year.

We would like you to continue to support our Toy appeal  2020 & we will continue with our other work  again support those in need in community.

Thorne Rural Lions wish everyone all the best for Christmas & let us all look forward to a good 2021

Thank you & take care.

October Litter Pick

LITTER PICK NOW CANCELLED DUE TO GOVERNMENT LEGISLATION AND THE MOVE INTO TIER 3 CATEGORY.

Well after the last litter pick was rained off (although it didn’t stop one of our Parish Councillors), we have arranged a litter pick for October half term. Hopefully we will get lots of volunteers, all ages welcome.

Please meet in Tesco overflow car park at 1.30pm. on Thursday 29th October.  It would be perfect if you could do a sun dance prior to arriving. 🙂

Hoops, grabbers and bin bags will be provided but please bring your own gloves and hand sanitiser. You might like to bring your own drink too. Litter picking is thirsty work.

Look forward to seeing you there in the sunshine.

EVENT CANCELLED

Volunteers needed!

Please join us for an Edenthorpe litter pick on Wednesday 23rd September 2020 at 1.30pm. We will meet in Tesco overflow car park (near the traffic lights). We can only work in small groups but this means we can split up and blitz Edenthorpe.

Look forward to seeing you there.
UPDATE
Sadly, this had to be postponed due to a sudden deluge at 1pm.
