Kirk Ireton Community Association public meeting and what happens next…
Glyn called this meeting and was accompanied by Mac, Sue and Keith. Glyn opened the meeting saying it was about the future of KICA and explaining how the four of them had felt compelled to draw attention to the fact that too few people were involved in the association. All four intended to withdraw from the KICA committee. Continue reading
7.30 pm – Village Hall Wednesday 27th March
After the public notice to wind up Kirk Ireton Community Association (KICA), the committee have been contacted with suggestions by a number of villagers. The main theme is that something should be done to ensure that this, or some other body should continue the good works that so benefit village life.
As a result we have decided to arrange a public meeting where the outgoing committee can explain why they have taken this course of action whilst allowing other members of the community to share their views and to explore if there is any workable alternatives.
If you cannot attend this very important meeting that could have repercussions on other aspects of village life then please either send a friend or neighbour with you idea or suggestion.
As previously communicated KICA has already given a promise to financially support certain events and we would appreciate it if anyone could also be able to offer their support in making the future evenings a success.
The future events are:
- The film night “’South Pacific” – 1st June (main sponsor Malcolm Race)
- Village Ceilidh – 8th June (including the cost of the marquee).
- Any expenses incurred by the newly formed Rattling Bog village ceilidh band
- Pay for Belper Morris if they attend this or another event in June.
- Pay for the Trinity Sunday brass band for 2013 (TBC after the meeting – 2nd June)
As a consequence there will no longer be an undertaking for any of the current KICA committee members to organise:
- Wakes day 8th June
- Wakes week events 1st – 8th June
- Insurance for any events staged that week
- Halloween evening
- Firework event
- Carols round the tree
- Christmas Tree erection & decoration
- Party in the Park & Family days on the field
- Christmas quiz
- Any themed community events previously used to raise funds for KICA
It is our intention that if there is no commitment from a new collective of village residents then we begin to wind up KICA and once all financial commitments have been met look to distribute the remaining funds so we can close the existing KICA bank accounts. Please direct any questions you may have to me at any of the places shown below.

The first Village Rounders & Picnic event was judged a success by all those that attended. A common theme of the comments received was – “it is really good to have an event that allows both children and adults to get involved”.
After about 90 minutes of Rounders we all relaxed with our picnics, snacks and drinks and shared stories of summer camping expeditions and other local events both past and future. So if you couldn’t get to this years event then look out for the 2012 gathering as it is really worth jotting that date in your diaries. If anybody took pictures of the event please forward them to our new Photo Editor.
The next family event with picnic will be on the 11th September (Grandparents day apparently!) on the village field. I hope to see you all around 2pm for Petanque. French dress is optional but French wine and bread are mandatory!
Voyezvous, là Votre Ami.
The Garden Party at the Beehive originally arranged for July 17th was postponed due to the weather until September 4th. However, it is now apparent that very few of the people who usually help to operate the event are able to be present.
So reluctantly the event is now being cancelled. September 4th is now certain to be a lovely sunny day.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday 14th September in the Village Hall starting at 7.30pm.
This month’s speaker is Nick Lockett on Photography.
