My sister Pauline and myself both members of Queensbury Performing Arts, QCHAP also Queensbury Singers are hosting a 1940s day on Saturday 27th September 2014. Venues for some events are Queensbury Conservative Club and George III pub, we would welcome any offers of help to put on this special 1940s day in our community.

The plan is to have a 1940s family fun day starting soon after lunch at the George III, there will be music and singing also children’s games on the village green, followed by a tea party in the Con Club.

In the evening there will be a 1940s style dance and entertainment in the Con Club.

We need people to help make sandwiches tea coffee. Also to help organise a few children’s games.

If anyone would like to sing a solo or duet 1940s style, play an instrument or read some poetry they are welcome do so.

Even getting dressed up in 1940s clothes will make the day more special.

Swimming Pool, Queensbury – Submitted by Cllr Paul Cromie

Dear Andrew et al,

I have had a request from a resident who lives opposite the proposed development for a freedom of information request re the land know as Asa Briggs playing fields Clayton Heights.

The resident is concerned that as far as she knew the land was a gift from Asa Briggs to the residents of Clayton Heights.

Can this be verified please?

Kind regards Paul
