BREAKFAST MORNING The October event run by Heather Bonsey, Janet Hailstone and their merry band of helpers raised another fine amount of £200. They will be taking a break in December so the first Breakfast Morning in the New Year will be on Saturday, January 30th from 9.00 am until 11.00 am. Beat the Winter chill and get a good start to the day with a hearty warming full English Breakfast.
VALE VIEW ROAD PLAY AREA On the afternoon of Saturday, October 31st the play area was officially opened by members of Wilton Middle School Educational Trust whose donation of £15,000 enabled the new equipment to be installed. Free sweets were handed out to all the children who came along with their parents to give their support. You can see pictures of the event on the South Newton website.
VALLEY ART GROUP The last meeting of the group for this year will be on Friday, December 11th. It has been a very good year with trips outside during the warmer weather and a total of 14 people joined up for the sessions.
We will begin again on Friday, January 8th starting at 10.00 am until 12.30 pm. If you would like to join us please contact Loraine at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 743577.
DOG FOULING Whilst it is commendable that somebody is picking up their dog mess using a black plastic bag, it would be very much appreciated if they could then dispose of it in the nearest bin, or take it home with them and not leave it suspended on a fence or dumped in the grass. Whilst looking looking very unsightly, it is also very unpleasant when these bags eventually rot away.
SOUTH NEWTON WEBSITE Many thanks to Tim for updating the website regularly throughout the year. It is a good way to check out what has been going on in the village and view all future up and coming events. If you have a contribution you would like to make, news of your event, pieces of interest, photographs etc. to submit for inclusion on the site, please contact Tim by email: email@example.com.
THANKS The village hall committee would like to thank all those people who came along and supported our fund raising events during 2015. So far £15,000 has been raised, and together with a local charity grant of £20,000, a grand total of £35,000 is an excellent start towards the amount required for the village hall extension. We still have a long way to go and very much hope that more people will get involved either by helping out, holding an event, or just coming along and giving support. We are fortunate to have such a good facility and people from outside the villages who have used the hall have remarked how well kept it is and good to use. Plans for the proposed extension are on show in the hall for anybody to view.
POST- CHRISTMAS WINTER WALK Join us on Sunday, December 27th to banish the Christmas excess and enjoy a breath of fresh air. Meet at the Royal Oak car park at 11.00 am from where the walk will proceed to Grovely woods, stopping at the half way point to meet the tractor trailer for warming drinks and treats. £5 per person towards village hall funds, or even better find people to sponsor you for the walk. Dogs welcome. Return to the village hall where a soup lunch will be served for £2 per person, or tea and cake for £1.50. A classic pantomime film will be shown on the big screen. Non walkers welcome to come to the hall to join the lunch and film show at around 1.00 pm
