Village Summer Barbeque 2019

On behalf of the Parish Council and the Village Hall Committee a huge Thank You  to all those who arranged, set up, and supported the BBQ at the Village Hall on Sunday 25th August.

Attendance was estimated at well over 100 and with a plentiful supply of excellent hot dogs, beef burgers, salads  and a variety of drinks enjoyed in full sunshine it was a most successful afternoon.   Special thanks must go to the Village Hall committee for all their work behind the scenes organising the event, especially to Adrian and Malcolm our Master Chefs for the cooking marathon and to all who supplied  such an enjoyable selection of cakes and puddings.

Takings on the day from the Entrance, Bar, Tombola and Raffle made a profit in excess of £750  which  will be split between  maintenance of the Hall and the village bulb planting project.

It is our intention to build upon the success of this year with a larger event in 2020 including fun sports for children (and those older but still young at heart) and perhaps a bouncy castle weather permitting.

Once again Thanks to you all.   Keep an eye on the Village Blog for news of future events.
