This will consist of the AGM, covering the time since 2019 when we last had an AGM, followed by a talk on the history of The Elms. This house has a fascinating history from its origins as a couple of cottages in the eighteenth century. As with past AGMs there is no entry charge but you still receive a complementary glass of wine. All welcome.
This is the last meeting at the hall for this season. In May there is a guided walk around historic Brinklow on Monday 16th.

The next event will be on Sunday 27th March: meeting at Birdingbury Church at 3pm for a guided tour of the church followed by tea at “The Club”. Please book beforehand with David Fry if you wish to attend.

Marton 200 Club – 2023
New Year – New 200 Club
The 2023 Marton 200 Club is up and running and it’s easy to take part.
- Becoming a member costs £12 per annum for each number purchased.
- Membership provides opportunities throughout the year for you to win cash prizes up to £40.
- Being part of the 200 Club is a great way to show your support for our village hall and its continued use as a community hub.
The 2023 Marton 200 Club has monthly draws providing cash prizes of £40, £20 and 2 x £10 that can be won for just £12 per annum. £960 was paid out in prize money in 2022! You could be a lucky winner this year!
How does it work?
The 200 Club has been running successfully for many years. Villagers have purchased numbers between 1 and 200 and these have been entered into monthly draws resulting in cash prizes.
The balance between tickets sold and prize money is a vital source of income to ensure the future of our village hall. This was particularly important during the pandemic period when, due to enforced closure, the hall was unable to generate income through the events that would normally have been held.
We hope that current 200 Club members are happy to keep their existing numbers and we thank them for their continuing support.
Marton has welcomed many new residents lately and we would like to encourage them to get involved.
Please contact Dy Hewett at The Cottage Garden, North Street, firstname.lastname@example.org or 01926 633243 about available numbers.
Payment can be made using the bank details below. Please reference your payment “200 Club” plus surname.

MPC January 2022 Agenda
The next Marton Parish Council meeting will be held on Tuesday 11 January at 19.30 at Marton Memorial Hall, Church Street, Marton. It will adhere to current Covid-19 Government guidelines.
All are welcome to attend, please find the agenda link above.
Marton’s extra recycling scheme is about to launch!
Did you know medicine blister packets, toothpaste tubes and make-up containers can be recycled with specialist processing? They can’t go into Rugby’s normal recycling bins and instead go to landfill, where decomposing takes a minimum of 450 years (and much, much longer for some plastics).
So, a few residents have volunteered to start a scheme collecting this hard-to-recycle waste. The parish council has supported the idea, using part of an environmental improvement grant from Severn Trent to buy a bin store and signage. Collection containers will soon be in the store, located alongside the playground fence, so please don’t throw the following into landfill:
• Used medicine/vitamin blister packs (remove personal data and any remaining medication)
• Toothbrushes & toothpaste tubes (including packaging and electric brush tops)
• Make-up containers (any brand)
• Foil balloons and banners (including packaging)
A village email will confirm when the containers are ready for you to drop off all collected items. In the meantime, if you’re interested in being involved in any way please contact us through the newsletter or website. We’d specifically like help with the following and are also keen to hear new ideas you might have for helping:
- Donations of weather-proof lidded collection containers
- Volunteers who regularly/occasionally go to Tesco Warwick or Clifton Primary School
If we get a few more volunteers the scheme can grow to save more items from landfill, like hand-wash pumps and laundry packaging.
More complete guidance on what can and can’t be recycled (in Marton or elsewhere) is on: https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB/brigades
Thanks very much!
