Friends of Fladbury Open Air Table Top Sale – POSTPONED

It is with regret that the Friends of Fladbury committee have decided that we must postpone the Open Air Table Top sale due to take place on Sunday 27th September.

This decision was taken today following the recent increase in Covid cases and in response to the Government's aim to minimise social contact to protect our population.  Whilst we would not be contravening the regulations, we cannot go ahead knowing there may be an increased risk and also putting responsibility for safety on those households who were to have a table top.  The event attracted a lot of interest with over 20 households wanting to take part and so it is really sad that we cannot go ahead. Thank you all for your support. We hope to hold the event sometime in the future and we will, of course, keep you informed should a future date or alternative become possible. 

Christine Farrell and Lou Bugg for the Friends of Fladbury Committee

Following our earlier meeting and other discussions, please find attached the Parish Council's response to the above application.

Traffic Calming

At Monday's PC meeting, Councillor Andrew Hughes presented the proposals for some new traffic calming measures as well as renewing some of those already in place. The proposals included a range of signage, road painted 'dragons' teeth and 30 mph rondels. Although there is general agreement that we do need some measures to help manage the situation, there was a degree of concern over the urbanising effect. Councillor Hughes will present a prioritisation of the proposals for further consideration at the October meeting.

  • Lucy Orchard of The Green emailed “I received a letter from Midlands Air Ambulance yesterday to tell me that we raised £347.40 from the donations for face masks in July. A huge thank you to everyone! I am still making them gently, so if anyone still wants them post them my way” – contact Lucy on 244416
  • Hi Fladbury Folk! Do you need matching masks for your household gang? I can make six masks in the same or similar fabric in different sizes so others can see you belong together. I have some stock and a variety of fabrics to choose from. Thank you to the folk coming back for repeat orders. Contact me, Vanessa, on 01386 860576, PM or

All these locally-made masks are washable and re-usable and better for the environment than the disposable facemasks.



  • Plastic milk bottle TOPS have been collected for a charity which no longer is taking them so please keep them at home for the time being until we find a charity who can use them. Does anyone know of one? Please contact Mary Gisborne 861472 if you can help.
  • Empty jars and biscuit tins - preserves jars (for honey, jam, chutney, etc) biscuits tins, plastic chocolate boxes available from 6 Woodward  Parks before going in the recycling bins – email me, Jane, or ring 860531
  • Books – paperback books are available in the old telephone box near the bus shelter in Station Road. Hardback books can be taken to St Richard’s Hospice Charity Shop in High Street, Evesham, where there is a very good (secondhand) book shop in the basement. Books are received from 10am on a Wednesday – the earlier you go the better because they have to refuse them when storage gets too full. There is a back entrance for car deliveries.
Such a shame the Table Top sale is off on Sunday but, if you have something to sell or give away or want something, why not advertise it as a small ad in this email – for free! Email or ring me – and there is also Fladbury Village facebook.
Now we are facing more rules, longer evenings, shorter days, cooler weather – if you want a moan or find you need some help or you know of someone who needs some help, don’t forget to contact our signpost people from the beginning of lockdown who will point you in the right direction.....
