EBPC Neighbourhood Plan - Not just about housing!

EBPC' s Steering Group (made up of Parish Councillors and volunteer residents) are continuing to write the Neighbourhood Plan in order to protect our village from unwanted housing development.

However, a Neighbourhood Plan is not just about housing and is great opportunity for residents to propose positive ideas that can improve our health and wellbeing, for example by identifying new village facilities or improving the quality of any new buildings.

In our Neighbourhood Plan, we could support opportunities that protect and maximise communal green and open spaces that will encourage the children, young people and adult residents of Eaton Bray to be more physically active. This could include looking at new ways to promote healthy lifestyle choices such as planting a community orchard or improving walking and cycle paths and marking routes that we could use for our regular trips through the village on foot, rather than in the car.

Eaton Bray is a village fully surrounded by the open countryside of the Green Belt and with so many historical and environmental assets to enjoy. The Eaton Bray Neighbourhood Plan will help protect these.

Aladdin - January 2017

Aladdin cast (2017)It's that time of the year again (Oh, yes it is)! and once again the Curtain Call Theatre Group will be showcasing their big family pantomime at the village hall, Eaton Bray.

The Jan 2017 panto is 'Aladdin...!' With a great script, dazzaling costumes, impressive set, plenty of laughs... and a wonderful cast of local faces, this is set to be an amazing show to suit all ages!

This years script has been written by village local and funny man Gavyn Lugsden, who also Directs the show and appears as Widow Twanky! Gavyn said 'with a much richer budget than previous years, this is going to be an unmissable performance. Not only does the pantomime include all the ingredients you'd expect, there are also some added extras, including an amazing flying carpet scene, an hilarious laundry slap-stick routine and some new visual effects'.
