Mapperley Social Group – next event ‘Know Your Village’ by Roger Wood
Mapperley Parish Council resolved to write to AVBC because they had supported Mapperley in 1980 to retain access for local people through Shipley Lane and there had been no change in policy since but the lane is now closed.
Mapperley Parish Council confirms their planning policy review. They are to generally oppose development where it could be detrimental to the community, to oppose infill or changes to existing buildings. To encourage the retention of community facilities. Allotments and parish features.
All policies can be viewed by contacting the Clerk to the PC

A Look At What Was Happening In Mapperley In 1967
Not only was 1967 the 15th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne but it was also the year that Mapperley celebrated the 700th anniversary of the granting of a Royal Charter on May 27th.
The Parish Magazine advertisers that the event would be held on the recreation ground. There would be the opening of the stocks, various displays, parades, country dancing, and a band, a TV strong man (Bert Royal), Punch & Judy, piano smashing competition, refreshments and a deer roast. On the Sunday there was a special anniversary service at Holy Trinity.
On the day the weather was awful, thunder, lightening and rain! That didn’t stop everyone turning and having a great day. Two lines in the magazine article of June 1967 are worth repeating. “The Vicar (Rev Joe Martin) nicked his son’s ‘genuine panama’ and vowed that the rain was all in the mind!”
“The sun didn’t smile, but the people did.”
Mapperley History would like to congratulate Queen Elizabeth 11 on reaching this milestone Diamond Jubilee and wish you all a happy Jubilee weekend.
Holy Trinity Garden Party raised £814. The event was held in the church due to the wet weather

A gentleman once wrote a book on Iceland, in which there was a chapter entitled “Snakes”, and all the chapter contained was this:- “There are none” We have just the same remark to make in reference to the “acknowledgements” of which we spoke in last month’s magazine. We had rather hoped that those who were not able to be at Church the Sunday the collection was held, would have liked to send in a contribution.
