We are only a small community in the Parish of Melbecks but I think, on the whole, we work pretty well together.
2017 went out with a bang and a crash in the village with 2 separate accidents on the last Saturday of the year. Hazel Brow house guests were first on the scene at accident number one and kindly assisted until the arrival of the air ambulance. Accident number 2 caused some traffic disruption and demolished some walls but thankfully no injuries and, once again, everyone worked together to ensure things got back to normal as soon as possible.
On the brighter side, we had a great Christmas party in the village hall, have got safely through our first snow and ice and are to ready to celebrate a 90th birthday in the village next week! And to put the icing on the cake (which we will be doing anyway!) our neighbours Bob and Rachel presented us with an amazing watercolour of Hazel Brow House – WOW! Lost for words! Its going off to get framed as I type and will be in pride of place in Hazel Brow very soon.
