We look forward to seeing you there! Islip Village Fte Committee 3 Speeding problems continue School Lane has been experiencing speeding vehicles which, were sure you agree, is utter madness in such a narrow street with children and vulnerable folks around. Please ensure you, at least, stick to the speed limit but preferably lower as there are many parked vehicles which increases the chance of

someone stepping out from between parked cars that you struggle to see until its too late. Your destination is reward for safe driving. Church services at St Nicholas church now all begin at 11am. On the first and third Sundays in the month ,the service is Holy Communion and on the second and fourth ,Sunday morning worship. Everyone is welcome to join these services and there is always time for a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits afterwards. Art on display at Clanfield Date for you diary - A wedding dress festival is being held in church 5-7 July and your wedding dresses, bridesmaid dresses, suits and photographs of your special day are needed. On Friday, 28 June as part of National Care Home Open Day, Clanfield Care Home will be throwing open their doors to the local community to join them for a cup of tea and a chat with residents as they celebrate Arts in Care. Doors will be open from 1.30 3.30pm and residents, their families and staff will be displaying their art. Judging of a Four Seasons art competition will also take place. You do not have to model the outfits and work is underway to source mannequins but if you have one of your own, that would very helpful. We promise to take great care of all items loaned to us and are really looking forward to seeing what helped to make your wedding day amazing. The church will be decorated with flowers highlighting aspects of weddings such as the mother of the bride, and the music . If you can contribute in any way, please call 01832 733758. Pop along to the Community Coffee Morning at the Working Mens Club on the 4th Wednesday of every month, 10.30am until noon. Just 1 for a tea/ coffee and 50p for cake. No club to join, no fees to pay, just a get together and a natter. Everyone welcome. Next coffee mornings 22 May, 26 June and 24 July. 4 Fundraising continues for the church roof following the lead theft in 2017. Half of the costs have been raised from events and generous grants and so the damage to the roof over the chancel has been repaired as this was a small area compared with the aspect on the west side of the church. Grateful thanks to everyone who has and continues to support the work of the church. 9 Playtime just got a whole lot better Islip volunteers step up for the Great British Spring Clean Young residents and visitors to the village can now enjoy new play

equipment at the recreation ground, thanks to a grant from the East Northamptonshire Councils (ENC) Community Facilities Fund and the Big Lottery Fund. Over a dozen volunteers joined members of the Parish Council in April to don yellow vests and fill rubbish bags with litter making the village look a whole lot tidier. Two hours of hard graft later and the helpers had filled many bags with drinks cans, sweet wrappers and crisp packets. The new look rec was officially opened by ENC Chairman, Cllr Wendy Brackenbury on Sat 6 April and wed like to say a big thank you to Wendy and to Su Davies of ENC who helped us with the grant . The makeover cost more than 20,000 which the Parish Council would never have been able to fund on it's own so were very grateful for the help we have received to make these improvements. A very BIG thank you to everyone who helped organise or came along and gave up their time to keep the village looking its best. It is much appreciated. There is likely to be another litter pick in the autumn, so if anyone is interested in helping out, please contact the Parish Clerk. You can also keep up to date on our Islip Village facebook page. There will shortly be a new round of grants on offer so if anyone would like to see more new equipment at the rec, please let the Parish Clerk know what you'd like and we'll put in an application. Farewell to a friend of Islip Roma Burdett remembers Ann and Peter Colvin who lived in the village for many years - Ann and Peter moved from Bedfordshire into Islip House in 1978 but their confectionery business (fudge, coconut ice and honeycomb to name a few) outgrew the property and so they moved into larger premises in Bridge Street, Thrapston, opposite the Bridge Hotel. Having sold the business, they returned to Islip for Peters retirement, initially to Branwell House in the High Street before settling in Rushmere Close in the early 1990s. Anne remained as busy as ever as a member of the WI, deliverer of Meals on Wheels and volunteer at The Age UK shop for many years. In December 2015, Anne moved to Eynesbury and then into a care home in Bucken in 2016. Sadly, she died on 28 March, 2019 and will always be a great friend of Islip and the surrounding area. 8 5 6 7
