Chair's Report, December 2018

The Armistice Centenary commemorations in Burton Green showed our community at its very best with so many people contributing to the meticulous planning. The First World War soldiers, cross and cascade of poppies on the Jubilee Verge attracted much attention, with passing motorists stopping to take photos and the placing of individual crosses made the commemorations very personal and relevant for Burton Green. The afternoon tea was a huge success with 80 attending! John Webb's excellent research, identifying eight Burton Green young men who fought in the Great War, including three who were killed in action, set the national commemorations in a very local context. Claire's very moving Last Post and the Beacon lighting at 7.0pm linked us with more than 1000 other beacons across the country, beginning with the lighting of the beacon at Westminster Abbey. We are grateful to the Warwickshire police for organising a road closure; they estimated there were 200 people attending. There have been many occasions in the 43 years I have lived in Burton Green, when I have been proud of my community, but these commemorations topped them all. Many, many thanks to everyone.

The Residents' Association is now busy planning for Christmas. The Christmas tree is soon to be placed on the Jubilee Verge. We are very grateful to Andy Gibbs for providing the tree, to Julie and Angus for supplying the electricity and to Barry Luke Andy and Terry for erecting it.

Thanks to our partnership with the Balsall Common Lions, Santa will be visiting Hodgetts Lane, Hob Lane and Red Lane on the evening of Friday December 14th. There will be refreshments at the Village Hall and a door to door collection for this year's Burton Green Charity, the Canley Community Centre, which was voted for at the October 15th AGM. You will also be able to contribute to a food bank at the Village Hall 10th — 14th December.

On behalf of the Residents' Association, I would like to thank all residents for their support over the year and wish you a very Happy Christmas and a happy, healthy 2019.
