A Letter from Barry Bowles - Bassetlaw District Councillor

Barry Bowles

I hope that I find you well?

I wonder whether you and your team would be able to make a couple of additions on the Scrooby website. -- one for me as your District Councillor and one for me on behalf of the Pilgrim Fathers UK Origins Association?

As you know, and the PC have been very helpful already, I have introduced Surgeries to the Ward and will be holding them every 3rd Saturday in the Village Hall. So that this information is exposed to as many residents as possible, do you think that you could publish this notice on your website for me?

SECONDLY, as it is an important milestone in our endeavours to establish a Pilgrim Fathers Heritage Centre in Scrooby before 2020, may I ask, on behalf of the Association, if you could publish this Press Release on the Scrooby website? Many people in the village know of our desire and often ask what progress we are making, especially with regard to the barn at the pub.

As it says, more information can be found at

If you could manage to do this for me it would be very much appreciated.

I look forward to your response in due course.
