The Concert on Saturday 29th September

Charlotte Newstead and her accompanist, John Marsh, performed a varied programme of music for easy listening in the church with familiar pieces from Mozart to Gershwin. Wine and canapes were served in the interval and the appreciative audience raised £873. Thanks to everyone who prepared the church with cleaning and the beautiful flowers everywhere and those who helped on the night.


Christmas Pudding Stir-up Saturday 24th November 10am to 12md, Village Hall

Father Christmas will once again be supervising the mixing of five huge bowls of Christmas pudding mix to a Women’s Institute recipe. Do come and enjoy coffee and refreshments while watching the stirrers working hard to obey instructions! At the end of the morning the 60lb of mixture will be sold for you to steam at home. This year we are moving away from the sticky plastic bags and will be using steamable/microwaveable bowls with lids, at a small cost, or do bring your own bowls.

Advance orders are very welcome to Mary Paine or Margaret Jones-Evans but it’s more fun if you come to the Christmas-themed morning. Hope to see you there.


Book sales have started again

The first book sale/coffee morning will have happened by the time you read this but the next one will be held at Highbanks, 1, Broadway on Friday 23rd November 10 to 11.30am. A huge selection of books and jigsaws at very reasonable prices, bring and buy, raffle and home-made refreshments all add up to a fun morning. Any queries to Margaret 01449 767121


Thank you to everyone who supports our fundraising events in so many different ways.


Once current improvement works are completed FOSA will get active again. We are most
grateful to the 'Gang of Four' who are enthusiastically fund raising for specific new facilities!
