As summer draws to an end, it’s time to look forward to what the rest of the year has in store for us at Waverley!

As mentioned in the July issue if Wave, the Waverley Residents Association has now disbanded, with the new Community Council taking over their slot in the magazine, so I’d like to introduce you to the new team who have been very kind to provide an extended update in this issue. You will see some familiar faces on the team of councillors, as well as some new ones.

There’s an exciting competition to create a new logo for the Waverley Community Council which you can read more about on page 5 – this is definitely one for the budding graphic designers out there! The deadline is 31st October so plenty of time to get your thinking caps on for this one.

There is also details of a new grant scheme available from Well Rotherham on page 6. I know there are many small community and general interest groups that residents have set up over the past few years, so you will be pleased to know that there is grant support available that you may be able to tap into!

It’s also time for the annual Waverley Scarecrow Festival – check out the update from the events team on page 7 to see how you can get involved, and what’s in store on the judging day!

For those of you with younger children, you may know that the application process for the foundation 2 stage at the new Waverley Academy school is open. There is more information on this on page 15.

Wave has always been intended as a community magazine, so I hope you find the news about what is happening at Waverley useful. As ever, if you have anything you would like to send to us for inclusion in the magazine you are more than welcome – this could be news about a new community group you are setting up, any charity events you may be holding or just some general news about what’s important to you in the community.

Thanks as usual to our lead sponsor Harworth, and to all our advertisers and contributors for making Wave possible. If you would like to get your business involved with Wave please visit our website for pricing details and everything else you need to know about the magazine.
