Research carried out by local resident  Brian Payne  has uncovered that a name of a soldier who fought in World War 1 and died at the battle of the battle of the Somme in 1916, has been omitted from the war memorial on the Cross.

Brian is seeking approval to have the name of Leigh Roose added to the list of those people who died in the World Wars. He has already approached Holt Community Council who, at their October 2014 meeting,  gave their support for the inclusion of the name. Brian is now asking local people for their views.

Elaborate forms of courier fraud Print
Wednesday, 28 January 2015 17:18

Action Fraud has received reports of an unusual type of courier fraud, which fools victims into buying expensive jewellery or clothing for the fraudsters.

Courier fraud continues to be reported and it appears that fraudsters are changing their tactics in order to dupe more victims.

Similar to the traditional types of courier fraud, the victim receives a phone call and they are told that they’re speaking to a police officer and that the police want them to assist in an investigation.

Wales Air Ambulance is a registered charity providing emergency air cover for anyone who faces life threatening illnesses or injuries.  We rely entirely on the generosity of public donations to raise the £6 million needed annually to operate our service and keep our three helicopters flying.  They can quickly reach casualties, landing on country roads, fields or even back gardens and ultimately saving time in this way, saves lives.   Responding to approximately 2000 missions every year, our helicopters can travel to anywhere in Wales within twenty minutes.  However, with each mission costing £1500 to undertake, fundraising is the key to keeping the service flying.

Tuesday, 20 January 2015 15:26

We have received the following letter from John Roberts,  Chair of Governors at Holt C.P. School

"I write to inform you that at last night’s Governors’ Meeting Mrs Goodwin shared her decision to retire as Head teacher at the end of this school year, in order to focus more on her family life.

It is clear that this has not been an easy decision for Mrs Goodwin. In her letter of resignation she wrote: “The last four and a half years have been the most rewarding and exciting of my career, and I feel very privileged at having had the opportunity to lead Holt School. The success that we have achieved has been down to a committed staff, supportive parents, a pro- active Governing Body and especially the wonderful children of Holt”
