 Gnosall Parish News AGM

Resolution regarding being unable to hold an AGM this year: In view of the Covid-19 virus situation, the committee have decided the AGM for 2020 will need to be rolled over to 2021. The

present officers on the committee will continue until the next AGM, apart from the Advertising Co-ordinator (Olive Wakefield) who has already taken over from Kathleen Ingram.

Many thanks to Kathleen and welcome to Olive. Again due to Covid 19 we will not be increasing the cover or advertisement prices for 2021, BUT we will not be able to give any donations this year.

Pat Tweed (GPN Treasurer)

Victorian Christmas Market

Owing to the continued uncertainty regarding the regulations relating to Covid 19, the Trustees of the Friends of St Lawrence have reluctantly taken the decision to cancel the 2020 Victorian Christmas Market.

However, we are already planning for the Market to return on Saturday 4th December 2021.

Hope you will all join us at the 2021 Market.

A letter from the Editor

I’d like to thank all contributors to recent issues of the GPN. With so many events cancelled, we had nothing for the What’s On (diary), and no reports of such events.

However you have all produced interesting articles and photos. Thank you and please keep up the good work.Anyone is welcome to send in an article of general interest, please send it to:-

newseditor@gnosallparishnews.com before 15th of the month for inclusion in the following month’s copy.

I am aware that organisations are planning future events. If you send in the dates up to December 2021, they can be included in the What’s On. Keep well, safe and sane.

 Defibrillators (AED)

I am sure many of you have seen the defibrillators positioned around the village:

Outside the Boat Inn and on the side of the Petrol Station and on the outside wall of The Grosvenor Centre.

These are for public use if required and very straightforward to use – just follow these instructions

• Go to the yellow box

• Look for the four digit code

• Dial 999. Explain your situation and give them the code

• You will be given a different code to open the box

• Take the defibrillator (AED) out and take it to the patient

• Don’t forget that an ambulance will be on its way to you

• Return to the patient and follow the instructions that the machine will give you once you lift the lid (it actually “talks” to you)


Parish Council

A BIG Thank You.

I have recently taken over the Ads management for the GPN and would like to thank all our advertisers for their continued support, to those that have been with us for a long time and to those that have taken new ads with us recently. I wish you all continued success in the future.

It is a valuable resource for all local businesses and services.
