Colin Hotham R.I.P.

The death of Colin Hotham, aged 94, on June 13th is a great loss to the Village.

Born in Hull, he returned to the area to live in Swanland in the1980s after a distinguished career in the Land Registry.

He was the first chairman of the Swanland Village Association and worked hard for it for many years.

He could often be seen working either by the pond (or in it !) with the gardening group.

The daffodils on Greenstiles Lane and the 30,000 crocuses planted round the village owe a lot to Colin. He even invented a special tool to plant the crocuses!

From 2002 to 2007 he was Chairman of the Parish Council, a period which saw the old village school transformed into the Village Hall. His enormous amount of work led to its opening in 2005,since when it has been very successful.

The Village Hall is part of his legacy to the Village and we are grateful for all he did.

The Cortege will leave On Hill At 2 pm on Tuesday 7th July for the funeral at 2.30pm at Haltemprice Crematorium. Due to the present social distancing restrictions it is suggested that those wanting to pay their respects can do along the the route through the village See Route Map.

The will be a live webcast of the service from around 2.25. You need to log onto https://www.obitus.com and enter

Duck Food Signs
Two permanent signs have now been placed in the pond to highlight the importance of feeding the ducks with grain. Bread pollutes the pond water and is less healthy for ducks. Healthier food (grain) is available from the Peppertree florist. The fish feed themselves.
