COFFEE AND CAKE this event held on the Bank Holiday Saturday morning was well supported. As well as enjoying delicious cake and coffee those attending were able to purchase books, plants and paintings. The total amount raised towards the hall extension fund was £208. Many thanks to Heather Bonsey and Neil Blake who helped on the day and to everybody who contributed cakes. I am hoping to hold another coffee and cake morning in the Spring when we will have a good range of plants to sell again as well as books and paintings. Loraine 743577.
VILLAGE HALL FUND RAISING Many thanks to Janet Hailstone, Heather Bryans and Cheryl Hooper for running a bric brac stall at Wilton Market recently. The total amount raised was £93, so thanks to their efforts another good amount towards the hall extension fund. Janet,Steve James, and Cheryl are planning to hold another stall in The Maltings,Salisbury, early in October so do go along and support them.
VALLEY ART GROUP The last outside summer trip was to Roche Court at Winterslow. Unfortunately, the weather was appalling in the morning so only one person came along to accompany me. However, as we arrived the skies cleared and so we were able to have a great morning wandering around the outside Sculpture Park looking at the amazing pieces that are displayed in the beautiful grounds, before being shown the award winning Artists' House. We are very lucky to have such a innovative artistic space so near to us, and it is well worth a visit. The group sessions began again on September 4th and if anybody is interested in joining please contact Loraine 01722 743577 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
TABLE TENNIS Sessions are now being held every Monday evening in the village hall. If you are interested in joining please contact Kevin Williams 07591071965
HOG ROAST This event, to include a bar and a band will be held at the village hall from 7.30 pm on Friday, November 20th. Tickets £10. Full details will be available nearer the time.
CONGRATULATIONS To Leasha Fry and Ben Steer who were married on Saturday, September 12th.
FOOTPATH CLEARANCE The footpath from Bonham's Bridge to the waterfall at South Newton is very badly overgrown and as a result walkers have to walk off from the original riverside path onto the fields and this can often result in a very muddy and slippery trail. It is hoped to form a working party to undertake clearance of the original path, so that eventually we will again have a pleasant walk by the river. Help is needed and if you would like to come along and give a hand, whilst enjoying some fresh air and exercise, please contact Rob Henstridge, 7427324 or email: email@example.com.
SOUTH NEWTON CRICKET CLUB REPORT We play in the Hampshire County Division North 3; this is a very competitive league in which we have had various levels of success over the last few years. This has been a tough season and we only just retained our place in the division, this was partly due to having a struggle to raise the same team every week. We have strong basis in the club and a great social side, but we would love to have new members, especially some of the younger people in the parish – there are various coaches in the club who can help get the best out of you!! There is a team that plays in the local 20/20 league on a Tuesday night from May until early August in which many younger members play to gain experience, so if you think you are the next England superstar and want a place to start, this could be it. If you want to join us next season as a player, umpire, or just to sit down for a pleasant afternoon by the river with a cup of tea of a glass of wine everybody is welcome. We will have nets for next season which will begin at the start of April for anybody who is interested. Contact Steve Grant, Chairman S.N.C.C. - email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
SOUTH NEWTON WEBSITE We are lucky to have a very good website run on our behalf. It gives up to date information, news and pieces of interest. If you have a contribution you would like to submit for inclusion on the site, please contact Tim by email: email@example.com.
