Martinstown village notices

In light of the current Government advice regarding Coronavirus safety measures, it is with regret that we have decided to close Martinstown Village Hall until further notice. All our regular users have been contacted, as have those with bookings through to the end of April.  We will keep things under regular review and contact those with bookings after April 30th as the situation becomes clearer.  Contact us if you have any queries about this.  We look forward to seeing you as soon as we can  -  meanwhile, stay safe.

The playground is also closed and no safety checks will be carried out during the period of closure.

Hello everybody...
I’m still running the shuttle service on Mondays and Fridays 1010 from the shop. But in these uncertain times if there is anything anybody needs that they can’t get from the local shop I’m happy to grab what I can and deliver straight to your house. Please support your local shop 1st and for most. 

People needing prescriptions/medication picked up please let me know before hand and I’ll deliver before picking people up. 

This is a service that all of A-Line taxis are willing to provide at anytime of the day but after 6 years of being your shuttle service I feel a little more compelled to help who I can at martinstown. Please spread the word to those who don’t have access to a computer. 

Tag me if you need anything or call A-Line Taxis on 01305 264747. 

Stay safe everyone...

churche header1

In view of the developing situation with the Coronavirus and latest advice we are all receiving, we have made the difficult decision to cancel all church services until further notice.

St Martin’s Church will remain open during the usual day time hours for anyone wishing to visit.

This Sunday, March 22nd is Mothering Sunday. Allen Knott will be available in St Martin’s Church between 11.00 and 11.30 am to serve communion (bread only) if anyone wishes to come.

We will keep you updated with any further developments via Church Notice Boards and social media.

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
