January Update

We Thankyou all for joining in the festivities of the village hall this Christmas, an enjoyable time of preparation and activities for all. We were almost back to normal inspite of adverse weather and winter health issues.

The light festival created a good start to Christmas with lovely decorations and lights in and out of the halls well as the houses in the lane, Thankyou for cheering us all up, some lovely lights. Mulled wine, mince pies and lovely voices together with hand bell ringing was a sheer delight on a cold night!

The Birmingham students filled us with amazement again, their voices beautiful, their presence in our village a treat! It was a pleasure to feed and water them in the hall as well as welcome them into our homes. Yes — so many of you say, this is the beginning of Christmas!!

Our village Christmas meal was scrumptious,as well as enjoying the sound of the saxophone,silly jokes, games, quiz and lovely chit chats lovely evening.
The mums and tots enjoyed a visit from Santa,the choir produced a wonderful concert, full of cheerfulness and all activities celebrated the season in their own way!

We began the new year with a New Years walk, just a 5 miler! ending in the village hall with a sleepy lunch and sweep up!

We proceeded with our first film night showing ELVIS! This went down well and we thank Mark Brooks for sourcing some excellent projector, screen and speaker equipment  for the hall which can be used for your own hire when showing a film or presenting a talk. Hopefully this will follow with a film on the 3rd Thursday of the month in winter months! Operation mincemeat and Mrs Harris goes to Paris are next!

We have a full programme for the year, which will be advertised on noticeboards, website, sword and around town. We welcome you all to come along when you can, some events need to be booked in advances don’t miss out. Do join our monthly coffee mornings, 3rd Friday in the month and bring a friend!
