Greek vase 2 by FirkinMonday Club:

~ Many thanks to Chris Washington, who came to the Monday Club to talk about pottery right from its beginnings up until its beginnings in Staffordshire. It was particularly interesting to see the pots that he had (worryingly) brought along with him, some thousands of years old. You never get the actual history of pottery when you look around one of the museums in the area and how coil, press and slip fit in to the big picture. Also, it was good to see how Sevres and Meissen fitted in. There were a lot of “well, I didn‘t know that“s going on in the audience!

Neighbourhood Watch – 
#Please can  you help? – Some parts of Ellastone no longer have a neighbourhood watch coordinator. The duties are not onerous, simply consisting of receiving e mails from the Police and forwarding them on to neighbours. The e mails are alerts on criminal activity, items to watch for, scams either on e mail or phone calls (from very nice-sounding people) etc. If you would like to volunteer as a coordinator for your part of the village, please email: Julie Sadler, our Parish Clerk, js.ellastonepc@gmail.com

Fast Broadband:

A reminder that Ellastone is able to access fast broadband. To find out if you are able to receive the enhanced service, you can put your postcode into the linecheck. If your address is listed as receiving the faster broadband then you should speak to your service provider about signing up for the fibre service. Many thanks to everyone who has fought to get this facility and especially to our MP Andrew Griffiths for his assistance in this matter.
