Plumtree Village: Social History and Amenities

NEW! Plumtree Parish Council Meeting - what you missed [click for details]

Plumtree Parish Council Meeting - what you missed

Plumtree's latest Parish Council Meeting was held on Monday 22nd May and, sadly, was very poorly attended.

The main item of discussion was the provision of public parking within the village. This subject has been discussed at a number of previous parish council meetings.

From the minutes of the March meeting: "Coun. Kerrison was asked to carry out a series of land searches to check on the possibility of car parking site availability in the parish."

This document is the result of his searches: Plumtree Car Park Site Assessment. To the uninitiated it seems to be rather more than a land search.

Plumtree Cricket Club

The cricket season is well under way so why not pop along to Plumtree Cricket Ground any Saturday afternoon until September 2nd to support your local teams.

The bar is open from 1pm, so you can enjoy a drink while watching some of the best local cricket.

Full details on the club website.

New Bench at the Burnside Hall

A lovely new bench has been installed on the paving outside the Burnside Memorial Hall to the left of the main door.

The bench is a gift to the Hall from Vonnie Daykin on behalf of the Cockayne family.

The Trustees of the Hall would like to thank Vonnie and her family for the kind donation which they are sure will be well used over the summer months.



Plumtree Village

Its population has remained fairly constant during its transition from an agricultural village to a residential one.

It features a thriving church dedicated to St Mary the Virgin; a popular village hall; a pub called The Griffin Inn (which is currently closed for refurbishment and will re-open again in 2017); a premier league cricket team; and the award-winning Perkins Bar & Bistro and Carriage Hall.
