The Garage Sales were once again blessed with good weather which brought out a good crowd of people and reports appear to indicate that stallholders did reasonably well-although some bargains were not snapped up! Around £150 was raised for the continued running and upkeep of the Village Hall and we are most grateful to Margaret Horne for all her efforts in the organisation of the day. Thanks also to various committee members for their hard work in the hall with refreshments.
Coming up we have:
Table Tennis on Saturday 12th May with the usual bar and baked potato supper.
Saturday 23rd June-the Fete with theme of Great Britain. Make the most of this one folks!! Raffle tickets will be included with the June Newsletter but if you want an early start ask Katie.
Sunday 15th July a walking treasure hunt and afternoon tea. The hunt starts from the hall at 2pm and tea may be taken from 3pm.
Saturday 25th August is the Flower, Produce and Craft Show.
On Saturday 15th September is a Music Quiz-get a team together to try to outwit the usual culprits. Music old and new, classic and pop and maybe a picture round too!
October 6th Saturday is the Harvest Horkey while the Children's Halloween party is on the 27th.
In November we hope to hold the Craft Fair as usual.
And finally in December the 'Other Quiz' is on 1st December and a Christmas Party for Children on 15th...and of course the Plum Pudding Walk between Christmas and New Year.
The 49 Club has currently 'earned' £1900 for the Village Hall and additional chairs are being purchased and quotes gathered for lining, insulating, plastering and painting the store room. Thanks for those vital pounds sterling and we hope the re-launch of the Club as a 59 Club will happen soon.
Thank you and enjoy our lovely facilities when you can.
