CANCELLED AUTUMN BARN DANCE

It is with regret that we announce that the Barn Dance planned for  Saturday 17th Nov has been postponed until further notice due to sad unforeseen circumstance.  The regeneration team are sorry about this and hope to rearrange this joyful occasion for the Spring.   Please contact the Parish Office if you’ve already bought a ticket.

Monthly COFFEE MORNINGS

Every fourth Tuesday morning throughout 2018.  Next on:

  • 26th November

In the Centre from 10:30 am until 12:00 noon
£2.50 for drink and cake
Come and join us for tea, coffee, cake, chat, and more.

Come with friends, make new friends, and help raise money for a new Parish Centre.

A huge THANK YOU, to everyone who continues to support our fundraising efforts and to all the volunteers hosting such a fabulous range of events.

Gifts, donations, coffee mornings, events and the change collected in milk bottles have boosted the total raised by the end of  June 2018 to £35,000!  Thank you all.  The amazing effort of 2017 surpassing our targets of £20,000 by the Michaelmas Fayre and £25,000 by Christmas has continued through 2018!

The milk bottles are gradually coming back filled with much appreciated change; by July 2018 they’d raised £1451 – all to prove that every penny counts!

Thank you to those who have returned their first bottles and then taken others to fill. If you have one in the kitchen – please share your change with it, and return it to the Parish Centre when it’s full!

PROGRAMME OF FUNDRAISING EVENTS in 2018…

The team have been busy planning the fundraisers for this year. We will be advertising these in as many publications, and places as we can – so keep a look out for the posters, and make sure you get your tickets early to avoid disappointment!!

We’ve enjoyed a stunning summer of events – concert, garden walkabout, Strawberry Lunch in addition to the regular coffee mornings.

Coming Up!
