With summer holidays becoming a distant memory, the autumn brings a number of local events for your diary.
In September, instead of a coffee morning, we’re hosting a Saturday morning get-together at 11.30am on the 19th September in the village hall. It’s a Soup n’ Roll event – so we’ll be offering a delicious bowl of home made soup, a filled roll, and tea or coffee, all for £3.50.
On 20th October, there’s a regular Coffee Morning at 10.30am, so do join us for home baking and fresh tea and coffee. The next month, there’s a short Remembrance Day service at the War Memorial at 11.00 on Sunday 8th November, after which everyone is invited to the Hall where soup and rolls will be available.
The Art Club starts again on Monday 7th September, and the Book Club meets on Tuesday 15th September at 7pm. This month, they are reading “Elizabeth is Missing” by Emma Healey in tribute to the late Elizabeth McLaren. Elizabeth regularly attended the Book Club meetings and thoroughly enjoyed the chat – which, rumour has it, does not always focus entirely on the contents of the latest book!
This year, the Thrift Shop effort raised an incredible £1624.66 for Hall funds – the best for some time. The Hall Committee sends a very big thank you to everyone who contributed goods and baking, and especially to those who gave their time to serve in the shop.
