Sherburn Informer newsletter Issue 1/19

A new community newsletter is now available for Sherburn in Elmet, called ‘Sherburn Informer’. This replaces the previous ‘Community Informer’ which was delivered to all homes in the village. Download the first issue here.

Just before Christmas 2018 the announcement was made from the Community Association that the Community Informer would cease. This was sad news for hundreds of residents who relied upon the publication to keep up to date with what was going on around the village. The Parish Council, Community Association and Creative Shed Agency met to discuss in detail how the publication would be able to continue, if there were other options available and if it was viable to have a publication at all. It was agreed that the informer in its current form could not continue but there was a definite need for something in its place.

The new ‘Sherburn Informer’ although a lighter publication will be produced bi-monthly with the first issue covering April and May. It will be funded through the Parish Council and the new editor Anne-Marie Oldroyd will be compiling the information.

In each issue, you will find information about what’s on, the Parish Council report, news and contributions from local groups and clubs and other relevant information and news from the village. If you would like to contribute any news or information you can contact the editor on 07410453584 or anne-marie.oldroyd@siect.uk.

Whilst it the newsletter will no longer be posted to each house, it will be available to collect and it can be delivered direct to the elderly residents in the village.

Download the first issue here.

Future issues will be linked from the Sherburn Informer page on this website which also explains how to get a paper copy.

Co-op Local Cause

The Trust has been successful in its application to become one of three local causes adopted by our local Co-op store.

They will donate 1% of the amount members spend on Co-op branded food products and selected services as well as money raised from sales of carrier bags and Co-op scratch cards.

Members can sign in to see the causes their local Co-op is supporting and choose which one they want their own money to go to. So please sign in or join up and nominate the Community Trust.
