BUS - The new monthly bus service to Rosson- Wye departs from Sufton Rise for the frist time at 9.30am next Thursday, March 8.
George Youngs will be operating this new service for only £3.70 return. Those with a concessionary pass can travel free. Visit dormingtonmordifordgroup-pc.gov.uk for further details or contact the clerk on 769480 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The quarterly newsletter from the parish council has been distributed throughout the parish so if you have not received a copy please let the clerk know. All agendas and minutes are available on the website above.
The next parish council meeting is on Tuesday, 7.30pm, in Mordiford School Hall.
SHOP - At the end of February 2012 the shop at Mordiford will cease to be a tea shop as Lulu Young is leaving. Someone else is taking on the premises and the Post Office continues to open on Tuesdays 1pm-4pm, and Thursdays, 8.30am-10.30am. A survey will be done to find out what people want and it is hoped that a shop of some sort will evolve.
It will only work if local people support it.

Services are now as follows. First Sunday in month: parish communion at 9.30am.
Second and fourth Sundays: morning prayer (BCP) 9.30am. Third Sunday: holy communion (BCP) 8am. The meeting was updated on the position with Mordiford School applying to become an Academy. The church fete will be at Sufton Court on July 7, 2pm-5pm and there is a fete meeting at Sufton Court on Thursday, March 8, at 7.30pm.
