Village Tidy Up - 19/03/16
A big thank you to everyone that turned out this morning to help tidy up around the village. As you can see we managed to collect an awful lot of litter, just over 20 bags! It is great to see so many people that care about the appearance of our village. Speaking to someone from Barton Mills earlier they said they usually only get about half a dozen turn up to help. We doubled that and some, so again thank you all very much.
BINGO - 18/03/16
A big thank you to everyone who came to our first bingo evening. we gave away £100 in prize money and I think everyone agreed that it was a very enjoyable evening. We raised just under £100 for the village hall as well which is great. We will be holding another bingo night in the near future, so why not come along. You never know lady luck may be on your side!

Forest Heath announces dates for base meetings - 13/3/16
Dates have been set for a series of public engagement sessions which will discuss the local priorities regarding the future of the RAF Mildenhall site.
Forest Heath District Council will be meeting with Government departments including the Ministry of Defence (MoD) and the Department for Transport, ahead of three engagement sessions in April and May.
Leader of Forest Heath District Council, Cllr James Waters said: “The MoD announced earlier this year its intention to release part of the site for housing while still considering if it wants to keep the rest of the site for military use.
“What we can say with certainty is The US Department of Defense has not published a detailed timetable for the withdrawal of personnel from RAF Mildenhall, and no planning applications for housing on the site have been submitted to us as the local planning authority to decide, nor has consultation with us over this taken place. We don't know how much of the site is to be released by the MoD.
“There is still the possibility of any number of options for the future of the site. So what do we want to achieve from this site? We believe it is a mix of new employment, housing, an improved skills sector and better local education all of which will benefit living standards of the local area.
“We believe this is a prime site for business growth- a chance for Mildenhall to capitalise on the science and innovation sector spilling out of Cambridge, and to replace the local jobs that will be lost when the base closes.
“We held a series of very successful engagement sessions last year. Now, following both the MoD announcement and our discussions with the Government we believe the time is right to hold these meetings in our communities again to discuss not just people's concerns, but the options for the future. We also hope to have an answer from the Government soon as to whether aviation use can be considered among these options.
“These meetings will help us as we continue the work with our communities and businesses on the one hand, and on the other partners including our MP, Suffolk County Council, Local Enterprise Partnerships, and the USAF, to ensure we are well placed to lead the regeneration of this site.”
The engagement sessions will take place on:
· 18 April - 6pm - at Forest Heath District Council, College Heath Road, Mildenhall
· 9 May- 6pm - at The Jubilee Centre in Mildenhall
· 13 May - 6pm - at Beck Row Community Centre
Booking is essential - members of the public wishing to attend should email firstname.lastname@example.org

Worlington Community Watch - 19/1/2016
IF IT'S SUSPICIOUS, CALL IT IN ON 101 OR 999!
When Police conduct house to house enquiries after a crime has occurred, they often find that people only then report something that had been seen or heard earlier and that was possibly suspicious or odd, but which had not reported at the time.
If it looks suspicious or odd, no matter what it is, no matter what time it happens - PLEASE call it in on 101, or if it is an emergency, 999.

Village Tidy up - 3/10/2015
I would like to thank everyone that turned up today to help with the village tidy up, another very successful haul of litter. Also thanks to those that couldnt make it today but went to the trouble of collecting litter earlier this morning and yesterday. I will hopefully be arranging another around late March/early April next year.
It has been bought to the attention of the Parish Council that dog fouling on public footpaths and recreational areas in Worlington has started to become a reoccurring problem. I am sure that all residents that own dogs will assist us by ensuring they collect their dog's waste and dispose of it responsibly. The Parish Council hope that this notice will encourage all dog owners to act responsibly, and to improve the problem without the need to introduce fines for offenders.
