FILM NIGHT Our screening in March of 'The Lady in the Van' a film adaptation of Alan Bennetts' novel starring Dame Maggie Smith, proved to be a most succesful film night enjoyed by all who came along to support the event. An amount of £198 was raised towards the village hall extension. We are now taking a break during the summer months but our popular film nights will begin again in September. Thanks to Caroline Webb and Steve James for setting up the films for us and for all those who donated raffle prizes.
BREAKFAST MORNING The Breakfast Morning held during the Easter weekend on March 26th resulted in a total £155 towards the village hall extension fund. Thanks to Janet, Cheryl and helpers for decorating the hall tables so brightly with an Easter theme. The colourful cloths and spring flowers were much appreciated as were the delicious breakfasts they served up. The next event will be on Bank Holiday Saturday May 28th from 9.00 am until 11.00 am.
COFFEE MORNING On Saturday, May 7th we will be holding another Coffee and Cake morning, with sales of books, plants, paintings, cards, craft and home bakes. If you are able to contribute in any way by donating items, please contact Loraine on 743577. If you missed our last one, then here is another chance to enjoy a chat, browse our stalls, stock up on plants, and hopefully make some purchases to help support our fund raising for the village hall extension.
VALLEY ART GROUP During April we enjoyed having a go at some Printmaking techniques. This was a new experience for some and it was great fun trying out different methods and being creative in a relaxed way. Thanks to Nicky for suggesting this topic. 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 email@example.com or phone 743577.
HOUSING PANEL MEETING will take place at the hall on Thursday, May 12th when Council tenants and leaseholders are invited to come along between 10.00 am – 12.30 pm or 6.30 pm until 9.00 pm if there are any matters or issues they wish to discuss.
EASTER BINGO Thanks to everybody who organised the special Easter Bingo evening and to all who came along and supported it resulting in an amount of £278 being raised. A succesful and enjoyable event.
