Customs and Traditions of the City of London

Lord Mayor's CoachCustoms and Traditions of the City of London

The subject of our November talk was on the Customs and Traditions of the City of London by Mark Lewis.  Mark amazed members with the extraordinary number of rituals and pageantry, some very eccentric and some downright bizarre.  Of course, we had all heard of Dick Whittington (1354-1423) who became a very successful businessman, an Alderman and was Lord Mayor of London four times. One of the strangest ceremonies, Continue reading

Apologies for absence: Robert Davidson

Minutes of the last meeting were agreed by all and signed by the chairman

Zone Warden Report: Unfortunately, they are now having to carry out many jobs in the town centre but hopefully, with an additional member, will attend our meetings every other month. Nevertheless, they continue to pick up rubbish and prosecute the fly tippers whenever possible and also dog fouling culprits. Posters put up around the countryside are an offence unless permission is sought from the land owner or permission from Colchester Borough Council Enforcement Manager.

Declarations of Interest: None

  1. County Broadband Information – The majority of issues and problems occurring before and during the summer have been dealt with and much has been updated with new high capacity equipment installed. County Broadband is a serious contender for a grant which would be available for fibre installation which will increase upload and download speeds to homes enormously but interest for possible uptake is important for it to be a viable proposition for our villages.
  2. Playgrounds and Playing Fields – are all in good order and the Community Group has carried out work for us on the greens, footpaths and Moss Hay.
  3. Soldier Silhouettes – 3 have been installed in our villages organized by Borough Councillor Robert Davidson and a local tradesman in honour of lives lost in WW1 for which a donation is requested to cover costs, Robert K proposed, Phil seconded, all agreed with one abstainer for the parish council to buy these at a total cost of £180 noting that they can be auctioned off or sold at a later date and money given to the charity.
  4. Peldon Noticeboard – The existing one has rotted at the bottom so a new metal one will be ordered at an approximate cost of £320 plus a minimal cost for materials for/and fitting for which Phil proposed, Jinny seconded and all agreed.
  5. UK Power Networks Project – A new cabinet will be installed and cable work improved and tidied up at Malting Road near the bus shelter.
  6. Peldon and Wigboroughs Community Hall – Borough Councillor Locality Budget is funding staging for the new hall with the help of the parish council being able to reclaim the VAT.
  7. Actions and Reminder List – updated.

    The Community Group continue to carry out good work for us with clearance at the church green area, verges along Malting Road and St Ives footpath.
  2. ECC Highways Devolution Pilot Scheme was discussed and although too late to offer our parish council for this scheme at this stage it was agreed that we wish to support the County Councillor in his attempts to resolve matters of certain small jobs not getting done owing to prioritization.

How to do Everything and Be Happy

Peter Jones, looking happy, with Treasurer Jane Anderson

PAWS October – How to do Everything and Be Happy

Instead of hearing about the History of Watermills, PAWS were delighted with their last-minute replacement, a very happy Peter Jones.  Peter stepped in after Ken Guyton unfortunately, had to cancel due to illness.   What a great evening was had, members laughed, cried and laughed so much again!

As a young boy, inspired by the antics of James Bond at Gants Hill cinema, Peter had yearned to be an actor.  Discouraged from this by his mother he was encouraged to get a “sensible job”.  He started professional life as a particularly rubbish Continue reading
