Village Notices

Welcome to your new look Little Gaddesden Village Notices! The contents will be much as before, but the presentation has been sharpened up and made more attractive and easier to read ⏤ at least, those are our intentions. If you’ve got something of village interest that you would like to be included next time, please email Mandy Haynes at village.notices@littlegaddesden.org.uk.

For subscribers to the mailing list, the notices are now emailed to you by our mailing partner Mailchimp. And, for everyone, they’re also available to refer to on the Village Notices page of…

Our New Website

We’re pleased to say that The Gaddesden Society’s new website is now up and running at littlegaddesden.org.uk. We hope you find it both useful and usable, so feel free to have a look around. While the site is still new, the front page includes an Our New Website section containing an introduction to the new site’s contents and highlighting the principal changes from the old site. It also tells you how to report any glitches that you find.

Celebrating the Queen’s 70 year reign

Most people are aware of the fantastic fun packed celebrations the village is organising in June.  The main events will be held on the sports fields on the Sunday. Now here is the question.

There will be a very large marquee available for a village party on Saturday evening. It would seem a real shame not to use it. Who out there would be up for a party? Help would be needed to set up and clear up and probably the easiest option would be to get ‘street’ food sales option. Pay bar can be sorted.

Please message me if you think it would be a good idea, if you would come with friends and if you could help in any way.

Let’s throw off the covid blues and party.

Little Gaddesden Art Club & Jubilee Weekend

Draw or Paint a Picture of Our Queen!

Little Gaddesden Art Club are inviting all children in the village to draw or paint a picture of our Queen on A4 paper (no larger please). How do you see her: with a crown, without a crown, in a beautiful hat, riding her horse or with the family? 

These will be displayed at the Art Club Summer Exhibition over the Jubilee weekend in the Village Hall. 

A project for the Easter holidays, perhaps?

Please deliver these to Virginia Westmacott at 2 Hudnall Common NO LATER than FRIDAY 13th MAY.

New Gaddesden Society Website Progress

We ‘soft launched’ the new website a week ago, on Thursday 10 March 2022. We’ve called it a Beta test version as not everything is complete yet, but we’re getting there. In particular:

Clubs and Institutions

We now have approved texts and images for the web pages for most of the village Clubs and Institutions – just a few to go.

Village Notices

Progress

We are making progress on integrating the Village Notices emails with the Village Notices page on the site. For reasons that are too boring to go into, that couldn’t be done before the site went live. In fact this Village Notices post that you’re reading now is part of the testing programme for the integration process: if the system works as intended, the post is being sent automatically by email to a few guinea pig recipients – they know who they are! If this and other tests are successful, the system will be rolled out generally, and then Village Notices will be available for reference on the Village Notices page as well as appearing in your email inbox.

Contact Details

We are often asked to include in Village Notices contact details such as phone numbers and email addresses. We’ll continue to do that on request, but please bear in mind that any contact details that you ask us to include will be available online on the Village Notices page as well as being circulated to everyone on the mailing list.

Any questions, please email Andrew Sheard at wp-admin@littlegaddesden.org.uk.
