Triumph for Alex!

Massive thanks to Alex for yet another truly spectacular Hallowe’en Event. Needless to say the Village Hall was packed and it was fabulous to see so many young families joining in.

You had to be there to fully appreciate the work that had gone into creating a really spooky entrance experience leading on into a room dripping with miscanthus and awash with laser lighting etc.

Special thanks to DJ Colin, Judith & Sharon from the Committee and to Alex’s Team of Caroline, Lynne, Diane & friends; also to everyone who donated cakes & Raffle Prizes

It was great to see Festival Queen Romilly, with such a wealth of supporters all really contributing to the success of the evening.

Final word from Alex: “I’m already planning next year’s event”. The village is very fortunate to have you!

Next up!

Jumble Update

Thank you for all your help & support for the Festival’s Autumn Jumble Sale. I’m delighted to let you know that we raised around £1100 which, considering the awful
weather on Friday and Saturday, is just brilliant.

All the dealers were well satisfied and everyone took a date slip for the next sale on March 16th 2019 – they say they really look forward to our sale and the sandwiches & cake are much appreciated!

The clearer gave £108 for the left over clothes, books & shoes which will go to various aid programmes both here and abroad and we took bric-a-brac and toys to the YMCA and other local charity outlets.

Thanks to Alex for overseeing everything and to Festival Queens Romilly and Niamh and their supporters Beth, Sadie & Matthew for pitching in so willingly.

Just 2 weeks now to Alex’s Hallowe’en Spectacular on Friday 26th October from 5.30pm in the Village Hall. Don’t miss this – Alex is pulling out all the stops and promises his best ever Hallowe’en Disco Party with fun & games and lots of prizes to be won. Adults are welcome to bring along your own wine, beer etc.
