    View from the Past by Paul Smith

    Hello and welcome to my View from the Past. This month we travel back in time to 1962 and the final service outside

    of the Old Chapel building on Lincoln Lane, opposite School Lane. At that time Thorpe had 3 places of worship. The building was used in

    later years as a tractor store and then was demolished in the early 1980’s to make way for the new houses that now occupy the spot.

    What’s going on…...

    It has been a busy couple of months in the village culminating in a successful ‘Love Your Parish Week’ conceived and organised by our Parish Clerk. Well done Janet; we think this may even be a ‘first’’ in the country! The Parish Council have plans to make this an annual event so look out for it next year and please join in where you can.

    The Parish Council have also launched a closed Facebook page which already has 67 members. This is for posting positive community information with regards to events in the village. The Railway Inn also has a Facebook page so if you haven’t already done so why not take a look.

    Spring has been and gone but once again the display of daffodils and snow drops in the village was tremendous, many thanks to the residents who gave of their valuable time in the past to ensure the season is enjoyed by everyone for many years to come.

    The Village Plan group have been very busy and well deserve our thanks for the work that is being done on our behalf. A report is included on page 14. The THREDS groups also continue to do well. All their reports and notices of forthcoming events and meetings can be seen here in View from the Hill. Don’t forget if you live in the village you are automatically a member of THREDS, everyone’s welcome to join in with the various groups at any time.

    Finally well done to everyone concerned with the Cake and Plant Stalls held in the Church on Tuesday 10th May; particularly to the organisers, helpers and those who supplied and purchased the delicious cakes, healthy looking plants and donated the raffle prizes. The fun afternoon was well attended, despite the inclement weather and a grand total of £193.75 was raised for Church Funds.

    The first meeting of Thorpe on the Hill’s new ‘craft and natter’ club was held on Monday 18th April and a small group of enthusiastic crafters joined together to share their crafting enthusiasm and skills. It appears we have some very talented people in the

    village! A massive ‘Thank You’, to you all for coming. A diverse range of crafts were brought to share, and some even learnt a new craft! Everyone from beginners to experts are welcome. All we ask is that your craft is portable! Or you can just come and relax and watch.

    So, why not come and join us at one of our forthcoming meetings? Held monthly on Monday evenings 7pm – 9pm, in the Oliver Roper Centre, the next dates are the 13th June and 11th July. Your first meeting will be free and then after- wards a subscription of £3.00, to cover hall rental and
