Editor’s Notes

Hello everyone.  Are you all ready for the Jubilympics!!!  I hope to see you all at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Party (don’t expect many of us will get to the Olympics, shame), on the Youth Club Field on the 4th June (see article below).  The Committee are working hard to ensure everyone has a lovely day.

If anyone has just moved to the village and has not filled the invite form out and is between the ages mentioned in Alison’s article below.  Please contact me on 650498 or another member of the committee and we will make sure you are catered for.

On a personal note I would like to say a big thank you to all my family and friends for their brilliant support over the last couple of months and to all those who have passed on their good wishes for Paul’s recovery.  Thank you

The Jubilee Committee would also like to thank Jean & staff and all who supported the recent quiz at The Crown & Anchor, which raised £126.

issued we will have had a shopping trip to the White Rose Shopping Centre at Leeds.

Easington Youth Club

Produce Show/Fun Day/Bogey Race.  Yes, its early to be talking about an event on 26th August but as the Produce Show will need entries for Veg, Fruit or Salad, people may want to get started soon.

The categories are split into juniors up to 11 years, seniors 11 - 18 years and adults over 18.

For Juniors up to 11 years there are categories for an Odd Shaped Veg; a miniature garden; the best decorated bun or cake; and/or the most inspiring photograph.

For Seniors 11 -18 there is an Odd Shaped Veg; the Best decorated Bun or Cake; and/or the most inspiring photograph.

For Adults over 18 there is a selection of 5 veg/fruit or salad; a Flower Arrangement; the best cake and the best pastry.

For All ages there is the Tallest Sunflower (date for measuring to be announced); the best Sweet Preserve and/or the Best Savoury Preserve.

More information will appear in future newsletters and in posters around the villages, so please enter as many categories as possible and help us to make this a memorable event that we can build on and improve in the future.

Thanks to the kind funding by the Leader CWWW. RDP., the Heritage Trail is ready and will be launched on the 14th April at 10:45am in the Community Hall.

Please come along. There is an

accompanying booklet about the two villages “Echoes of the Past” which will be on sale at a cost of £6.00.  This has been very generously sponsored by Gassco. Funds raised by the sale of the books will go into the groups funds.  Watch out for Posters.


Easington United- Footy At The Farm

With fixtures changing regularly at this time of year, supporters are advised to check the posters on display at various places in Easington and surrounding area for latest news.

One important date that is fixed is Tuesday, 17th April when the Casuals take on Skirlaugh Reserves at Hill Top Sports Ground, De la Pole in the semi-final of the Harold Robinson Cup (6:30pm).  All support would be greatly appreciated.

Our thanks go to all those who bothered to support the Sport Relief Mile held on Sunday 25th March.  Although disappointed by the poor turnout, everyone who took part (runners, walkers & scooterists of all ages!) seemed to enjoy it – if “enjoy” is quite the right term!

A sum of £150 was raised in entry fees for a very worthy cause, along with whatever other sponsorship was raised by the participants themselves.  Thanks go to you all.

We were saddened to learn of the recent passing of two former club stalwarts.  Walter Broom was a member of the Eastenders Committee formed on 27th June 1958, when it was first decided that the football and cricket sections of the original Easington AFC & CC should go their separate ways.

We can also be fairly sure that Walt also served on the committee of the original club although we have no documents to support this.  As part of the new stand-alone football club, he served on the Selection Committee and also, for a short time, as Club Secretary before stepping down in the mid-Sixties.

At the same time as Walt was leaving the scene, Joan Tomlin was getting involved.  Her then husband Herbert was elected to the Committee in June 1965 as Trainer/Coach and would later progress to post of Chairman. Joan joined the Committee as Treasurer a year later and remained thereon for the best part of a decade.

Finally, the Eastenders’ confirmed April fixtures at Low Farm are as follows:

Sat 7th (Main Pitch) First Team v Bentley Colliery (CML North Div, 3pm) Sponsored by ‘The North West Ryvita Stand Supporters Association’

Sat 21st (Main Pitch) First Team v Phoenix FC (CML North Div, 3pm) Sponsored by Terry Lount & Richard Lusmore


Green Bins Good Friday normal collection.  Next one Sat 14th April.

Brown Bins Thurs 5th & 19th April 3rd & 17th May

Blue Bins 26th April 24th May
