The Parish Council is aiming to raise funds for 2 defibrillators – one for each village. Thanks go to those who have organised events in the village donating funds to the appeal. Also thanks to individual donors. The funds are being collected and ringfenced in the Parish Council bank account. We are aiming for £2000 for the first defibrillator and will keep everyone informed on the amount raised.

Doggy Bin

As well as the 2 doggy bins provided in Thornton-le-Clay, there is a new doggy bin provided in Foston. We ask everyone to use these when out walking their dogs, for their doggy waste. Leaving it on the roadside or in the grass verges is a health hazard for other people & animals walking around the villages. So please bin it.

Telephone Boxes

The Foston phone box is now being used for a book exchange and for the display of leaflets.  The Thornton-le-Clay phone box had to be dismantled for health & safety reasons & is being stored at Marcon. On current estimates it will cost too much to restore & resite safely. However if anyone would like to get involved with or provide a quote for its restoration please contact Fiona Hill through the contact us on this website.
