Xmas Dinner for the Elderly held at the Village Hall on 22nd December 2017
A CHRISTMAS luncheon was held by Catshill And North Marlbrook Parish Council for elderly residents of the villages.
All residents were given a raffle ticket on entry and the prize of £50 was won by Ruby Wilkes.
Everyone also received a gift from Father Christmas.
Coun Shirley Webb said: “I was privileged to help out, everyone enjoyed their Christmas meal and entertainment and there was lots of seasonal singing.
“Many thanks to everyone for all their help, driving people to the hall, Carol arranging the cooking, Jill Bates and Neil Ward from the parish council for their wonderful organising skills along with other parish councillors and volunteers.
“Without their help today would not have been possible.
“It was a wonderful community event. Merry Christmas to all.”
Catshill and North Marlbrook Parish Council was established in 1994, making it one of the newer Parish Councils in the Bromsgrove District. It comprises 13 Councillors who are elected to represent three wards within the Parish; Woodrow Ward (3 councillors), Barley Meadow Ward (8 councillors) and Lower Marlbrook Ward (2 councillors). Local Councils are an essential part of local democracy acting on behalf of the wide variety of communities they represent by:
Giving views, on behalf of the community, on planning applications and other proposals that affect their area
Undertaking projects and schemes that benefit local residents
Working in partnership with other bodies to achieve benefits for the parish
Alerting relevant authorities to problems that arise or work needing to be done.
