Macmillan Coffee Morning
Two weeks ago, Fearnan took part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. It is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for those facing cancer, when people all over the UK to host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan.
Although a number of identical events were being held at the same time in the area, the event in the village hall made over £295 for Macmillan, and then sales of cakes in the Thrift Shop took the total to over £300 – a fantastic result and many thanks to everyone for their generosity, both in producing a fantastic range of goodies and in donating to Macmillan.
The owners of Boreland Farm have a planning application in progress to replace the caravans with cabins and to add two large cabins to the site. Although they declined the Community Council’s suggestion of a local consultation, they are running an Open Day on Sunday 15th October 2-5pm. This will be an opportunity not only to see round the site, but also to put your questions/concerns to the owners, and to discuss the measures they are putting in place to try to mitigate the impact that some of their visitors have had on residents. These measures can be viewed here.
As well as complementary refreshments, there will be a range of activities and fun and games for all ages.
There will be a short service of remembrance on Sunday Nov 12th at 11.00 at the War Memorial. Afterwards, the FVA will be serving tea and coffee in the village hall. All welcome.
