Parish Council: the first meeting of 2014 for Staveley & Copgrove Parish Council will be at 7.30pm tonight (January 16) in the village hall.

Church Services: Sunday, January 19. Village service in All Saints, Staveley at 9.30am and Matins at 11am in Copgrove Church.

Village Hall: preparations are underway for the Race Night which will be on February 22. This has been a very enjoyable evening in the past and we hope for good support again this year - more details as soon as possible.

Staveley Stampede 2014: the date for this year’s stampede has been set for Sunday, June 22 and we hope to build on last year’s success when we had 140 runners. One of the most important aspects of local races is sponsorship and we are keen to get local businesses to sponsor the event which is key to the fund raising efforts of the village hall committee. In return for sponsorship the business is given publicity with their business name on the race number and on the memento of the event. If anybody has any contacts or suggestions of local businesses who could help please let me, as race organiser know, or any member of the committee.
