Paxfest 2013

The Paxfest Organising Committee are now planning next years' event which will be held on Saturday 13th July on the Queen Elizabeth II Playing Field.

The Committee has contacted all the village groups who attended Paxfest and asked for feedback and ideas for next years' event.

One of the ideas put forward is to have a Fun Dog Show. The organising committee think this will be a great attraction and plans are now underway to have the first Fun Dog Show at Paxfest.

Cllr Alan Denison said' There are lots of dogs in the village and a Fun Dog Show will be a great opportunity for children and adults to bring along their pet dogs'.

The type of dog classes will be agreed in the January.

Also the committee are looking for a small display of vintage and classic vehicles including bikes (pedal & motor).

Council changes increases efficiencies

Little Paxton Parish Council is looking for new members to join the small dedicated team of Parish Councillors.

The Council has in the past month changed its meeting structure and abolished its Planning, Amenities & Finance Committees. All decisions previously made by these Committees will now be made by the Full Council. The Full Council will now meet twice a month (except August, where only one meeting will be held).

Cllr J. Cleaver, Chairman of the Council said 'It is anticipated that the changes will further improve the Council's efficiency as a result of fortnightly Full Council meetings instead of monthly ones. Matters may be placed on the Agenda, decisions made and acted upon more frequently. Full Council meetings should finish earlier as the Agendas will be shorter.'

If you've got a few hours to spare each week - and an interest in the future of the village - we'd like to hear from you.

Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said, 'Little Paxton Parish Council is very proactive. The role of a Councillor is a rewarding one and the Council has a high profile in the village. There are day/or evening training courses available for all new Councillors.'

Wild Meadow- Little Paxton Lawn Cemetery

During the last few months, Little Paxton Parish Council has been carrying out minor improvements to Little Paxton Lawn Cemetery.

In September, the Council agreed new Guidelines to allow the scattering and disposal of ashes in a part of the cemetery which cannot be used for burials. This section of the cemetery is being turned into a Wild Meadow where the grass will only be cut twice year.

The Wild Meadow will be divided into four areas namely- Spring, Summer, Autumn & Winter. Relatives can choose the section in which they wish the ashes of their loved ones be scattered in or disposed. The person may be remembered by the planting of up to six native bulbs.

New oak signage will be placed in the middle of the Wild Meadow to identify each section.

There is no requirement for the deceased to have been a resident in Little Paxton and there is no charge. In all cases, notification of the intention to scatter or dispose of ashes is required to be delivered to the Clerk of the Council.

Parish Clerk Jenny Gellatly said' Little Paxton Lawn Cemetery is a country cemetery and the wild meadow will provide a peaceful resting place of natural beauty. '

Cllr Jean Matheson said 'The Council would like to install two benches in the middle of the Wild Meadow section for visiting relatives. The benches are to be made out of recycled plastic in keeping with the Council's ecological ideals. '

A plan of the Wild Meadow section along with Notification forms are available on the Council's website- www.little-paxton.org.uk./ council document library/cemetery.

If anyone would like to donate a Commerative bench, please contact the Clerk.

Roofglaze Ltd renews MK Bucks Sponsorship

Following their victory in the Single A National Baseball Championship in September, MK Bucks continued their run of excellent form with fourth place in an international tournament in the Netherlands, playing against high quality opposition including the PSV Eindhoven baseball team.

This continued success has resulted in the team renewing it's partnership with sponsor Roofglaze Limited, suppliers of rooflights and roof glazing systems.

Over the last year, with backing from Roofglaze, MK Bucks have recruited new players to grow the squad and increase general awareness of the team and baseball in general.

Bryan Clarke, of Roofglaze, MK Bucks' main sponsor, said: Roofglaze is in the business of daylight - and that's what we're aiming to help the MK Bucks put between themselves and the opposition again in next year's Single A championship! ...with even more focus on training and player development.

As well as recruiting local players, the MK Bucks team draws on talent from as far away as Japan and the United States: countries where baseball has a higher profile than in the UK. "The team is a real focus point for baseball in the UK", said Bryan. He continued: "It provides a great opportunity for newcomers to the game to gain skills quickly as part of a professionally run training scheme".

The team currently has five BSUK registered level one coaches to help train and work with new players. Training and matches are on the Diamond at Woughton on the Green Sports Centre in Milton Keynes.
