Lunch – Saturday 6th July – Food from 12 noon

Main Course £4.00 : Sweet £2.00 Coffee or Tea 50p

Great value menu with home cooked food with veggie and gluten free options.

We need more volunteers to help. If anyone is interested, we have a rota for helpers in the kitchen who help serve the food and clear away. It means giving up a couple of hours but is a great way of getting to know other people in the area. Do get in touch with Sarah on 07842201950

Vegetables kindly donated by Berryman’s Farm Shop, Leedstown 

Village Hall AGM

Produce & Plant Swap

This is taking place from 11am to 2pm on Saturday 6th July during the village lunch. Please bring along your surplus plants.

Gardening Tip

Now is the time of year to see slow worms, harmless, legless lizards, sheltering under stones and pieces of tin, so move these with care. Enjoy the butterflies and your garden.

The story of a young man Ernesto (Che) Guevara and his friend Alberto who mount their battered old 1939 motorcycle and roar off for an 8,000 mile trip around a continent they see for the first time. The film takes them past forests, plains, high chaparral, deserts, lakes, rivers, mountains, and along the way they rely on the kindness of strangers to survive. By the end of the journey Ernesto has undergone a conversion and decides to join Castro in the Cuban Revolution.

Craft Group ‘FROTH’

Thank you for all who attended the session in the Hall last month when we made the new summer decorations for the hall.  It was a really fun and enjoyable morning.

The Garden Party

WOW!! What a wonderful afternoon!

The sun shone and the garden was just beautiful. It was full of happy smiling people enjoying the atmosphere, eating hot dogs and cake and listening to the wonderful music provided by the Ukelele Band, The Jumping Fleas. Playing on the top lawn, the band really were the highlight of the afternoon in their colourful costumes and with their lively tunes.

With the Bric a Brac stall, the Raffle, the entry fee and donations we are delighted to be able to send £542.88 to the Charity (of which £106 was from donations) and we are hopeful that HSBC will match this amount bringing the total up to £1085.76. Thank you to all who came to support the Charity and the event, making the afternoon so amazing. Also thank-you to the volunteers who barbequed, baked, made drinks, manned the stalls and organised the event. Also to our sponsors, Berriman’s Farm Shop, Leedstown who supplied the box of fruit and the box of vegetables for the raffle.

Thanks also to Marlene and Lesley Hudson who let us use their delightful garden.
