Village News September 2023


Hello again good gentle folk of Hagley. Here we are already in September with autumn upon us and last season now behind us. We do hope you all had a good summer whether it was in scorching hot Europe, cooler climates elsewhere or here in wet and windy but loveable old Blighty - land of ancient hills and beautiful greenery!

As our young folk look forward to returning to or starting their schools, colleges, universities and apprenticeships we would like to wish them all the best in their endeavours and the future ahead.

For those in the community with younger children it’s definitely worth taking them along to the Little Treasures playgroup at Hagley Community Centre. It’s run by Pauline Hollis of Lifecentral Church, Hagley and is a fantastic couple of hours for pre-schoolers to make friends and enjoy the many activities on offer. See page 38 for more details and contact information. We are very fortunate to have a lovely park and play area in the village and we’re delighted to report that the latest addition to this is a new accessible swing. We have a picture on page 6 of a smiling young Lily putting it to very good use.

If you fancy a good local night out for a good cause then get yourself tickets for the LVIV AID event at the Community Centre next month. The Suits will be providing the music and a licensed cash bar will be providing the drinks. What’s not to enjoy! See page 27 for more details. And we have an interesting bit of Hagley history for you. If the name Kay Wilkinson rings a bell then take a look at page 14 - we just love a bit of good old nostalgia.

Happy reading all and we’ll look forward to catching up with you all again next month.
