River Chater footpath bridge replacement

The replacement foot bridge over the River Chater on the footpath from the Church to Glebe Road is ready to be installed. Heavy equipment is required to get it into place and unfortunately with the recent storms the ground is too wet.

Rutland County Council has contacted that the contracter hopes to be able to install the bridge in about three weeks. However this is dependent on the ground being able to take the equipment and the agreement of the landowners.

Let’s hope for a dry(ish) spell!

Wake For Ken Forsyth

From Julie Abell

For those who knew Ken Forsyth of Oval Close, he sadly passed away recently.

His daughter Rachel has asked me to pass on an invitation to his wake on Thursday 22nd February at 12pm at Stamford Masonic Hall.

Nothing formal, a few words from his
son Ian, some lunch, and an opportunity to share memories of Ken.If anyone wants to come, they are very welcome. 

Rachel has asked that if you let me know if you hope to come so she can plan catering.
