Hook and Odiham Lions have once again kindly agreed to distribute our Annual Report to every house in Hook. You should receive yours by the end of April. We will also be putting an electronic copy on our website at https://bit.ly/3tcZ4gD. Additional paper copies will be available from our office.
Outstanding Covid Response
As mentioned last month, we asked for nominations for this years Community Award to be given to a group or individual who has shown an “Outstanding Covid Response”. Thank you for all your nominations. These will be taken to the Full Council Meeting on 6th April where the worthy winner will be chosen. The winner will be announced and given their award at the Annual Village Meeting on 11th May.
Annual Village Meeting
Thank you to all who have requested a table. We are finalising the speakers and the agenda will be published in due course. At the end of the evening there will be an opportunity for residents to ask general questions. In order to enable us to fully answer questions that may not fall under the Parish Councils remit, please submit your questions to us by Monday 25th April to enable us to contact the relevant party and obtain their response. Please submit your questions either via email or by handing them into our office.
To mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee we are creating a small garden area in Wellworth Park. Initially it will have three trees and two benches. We will have two plaques that will go in the garden. We are running a competition as we would like the residents of Hook (including children), to design them. The designs should be A4 and depict what the Jubilee means to them. The Parish Council will select two pictures to be made into plaques and a third will be made into a card that will be sent to the Queen on the village’s behalf. Please send your entries via email to or drop them into our office. If our office is closed, please slide them under our door as the post box tends to get damp and we would hate for anyone’s entry to get damaged. The closing date for entries is 25th April 2022.
Echo Hotel Music Club (EHMC)
EHMC held their first gig of 2022 on Saturday 12th March. It was a fantastic night and it was great to be able to enjoy original live music again. There are more gigs planned this year and tickets are on sale now. Go to https://www.facebook.com/echohotelmusichook
