Christmas Lights – Can anyone help with storage facilities?

The Christmas Lights Group are reaching out for some help in storing some of their Christmas decorations. With the closure of The Chapel they no longer have access to storage in The Chapel.

Can you help?  The decorations need not all be stored in the same place but the storage area needs to be dry and not susceptible to damp

St Breward Community Newsletter – Saturday 11th December 2021

The Parish Council is aware that over the last few weeks flyers advertising an app/website called  NextDoor (, have been delivered to homes in the Parish, including one purporting to come from a ‘Denis’;  the Parish should be aware that this is not Denis Lusby, the Chairman of the Parish Council.

The Parish Council does not know the authenticity of, nor does it endorse, this app/website and would advise Parishioners to think carefully before signing up to unsolicited apps/websites without carrying out due diligence.
