BREAKFAST MORNING   The Breakfast Morning  held at the end of April  resulted in a total £ 103.  Thanks to Janet,  and helpers including Neil who stepped in at the last minute.  The next breakfast morning will be on Saturday, 25th June so do come along and treat yourself.


COFFEE AND CAKE MORNING    A total of £203 was raised from this event. Thanks to everybody who helped on the day. Also thanks to those people who donated so that the stalls were packed with plants, crafts, books, paintings and cakes. It was disappointing that the morning was not well supported by the community.  


VALLEY ART GROUP   During our first session in May we tried out some collage techniques, experimenting with various types of papers to create a different type of artwork.  The hall provides a good light space for working in all mediums, and if you would like to join us to work there, or to join one of our outside trips for sketching and painting during the summer months please contact Loraine at or phone 743577.  Weather permitting will be making a return visit to Langford Lakes on June 10th to draw and paint on location.


CRICKET CLUB QUIZ  Thanks to Steve Grant and all who helped organize this evening of quiz questions and refreshments  in April.  A great evening was had by all who took part in the teams.


EASTER BINGO The St. George's Day Bingo saw the hall suitably decorated with an English theme, and the raffle prizes were chosen from English products.  A fun evening of bingo together with nibbles and a special  raffle was much enjoyed, and thanks to Heather and helpers for putting on this extra session. Money raised amounted to £333.


ANNUAL FETE AND DOG SHOW  This popular afternoon in the village calendar will be held on Saturday,9th July. Any new ideas for stalls, competitions, side shows etc will be most welcome as will any help or donations you can  contribute to either the fete or dog show.  Check out the South Newton website for regular updates on what is happening. Contact Carol Webb on 743897or Heather Bonsey on 790363 if you feel you can help or donate in any way to ensure the continuing success of this event.  Help and ideas from younger members of the community would  be very much appreciated.
