Below is a link with information for a temporary job opportunity with Durham County Council Electoral Services. Please consider it as a way to be active in your community and to provide yourself with a little extra pocket money.
As some of you may or may not know, Thornley Parish Council recently took over the management of the village centre. Where most things are concerned, this has very little effect on the people of Thornley. It does however mean that there will not be any summer holiday activities for children taking place in the interim. We’ve just hired a new member of staff whose responsibilities include organising events outside of the regularly scheduled sessions (for more information, see Thornley Village Centre’s Facebook page) and look forward to her ideas on engaging the community in a variety of activities and events. The centre was very fortunate to have such a proactive member of staff prior to all these changes and she was ahead of the game with booking the Halloween Disco, Christmas Lights event, and the Christmas Pantomime. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact the Village Centre on firstname.lastname@example.org and please make sure to check out their Facebook page for information over the coming months.
It was the endeavour of all parties involved to make this an easy transition and for all the regularly scheduled activities to continue taking place. We appreciate the continued support of the community and hope to see increased attendance at all our upcoming events!
Sorry if there has been any confusion about the vacancies posted. The closing dates and interviews took place as stated in the previous post, but the applications and job descriptions were not removed from the website. This has been corrected.
How about that lovely snowfall this morning? Did you get a photo of your dog playing in the drifts?
We had some gorgeous sunshine last week; did you see the sun shining on Thornley and just have to snap a photo?
We’re continuing to ask the community for photos of our little village. Even if they’re photos from years ago that you scanned in or historical photos that have been passed down through your family, we’d love to see them and share them with everyone. Please send any images to email@example.com and we’d be happy to add them to the gallery on your behalf.
This website is still in progress and as part of that, we would like to ask the people of Thornley to submit some of their favourite photos from around the village and throughout the years.
Did you catch a beautiful sunset across the fields?
Were you on a walk the day all the flowers were blooming?
Have you gotten some lovely photos of the recent snowfall?
Please send any photos to firstname.lastname@example.org and keep checking back on the website to see updates to the gallery and other pages.
