Pop Up Bar (PUB)  at the Village Hall on  Friday 7th September

From 6.30pm onwards.

The Village Hall – Volunteers needed

Village Hall – volunteers needed.

The Village Hall is a real asset for the Village, bringing together the community,

It is run throughout the year entirely by volunteers.

If you have the time to be on the Village Hall Committee (meetings are held on Tuesday evenings every 6 weeks at 7.30pm).

Alternatively, be a ‘friend’ of the Village Hall helping out at specific events, for example Social Saturdays and Open Garden days.  Speak to Davina, or Clair for more information, or to offer help.

 

Village Hall – ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal.

The next phase of the Village Hall refurbishment is the replacement of our increasingly wobbly chairs.

Village Hall – ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal.

To do this we need to raise serious funds.  We have received a grant of £500.00 from the Parish Council, but we need to buy at least 60 chairs at £30 – £ 40 each.

The Village Hall has recently purchased a small number of toddle size chairs and a low table useful for children’s arts and craft work.

We’ll be holding fundraisers, but also asking village organisations, businesses and individuals if they will support us by sponsoring a chair, part of a chair, or even more than one chair.

The fundraising activities will be launched at the August Social Saturday on the 25th August.  We hope that we will have a chair to view on the day.

Village defibrillator at the Village Hall

If you need to use the defibrillator for an emergency cardiac arrest then:

  • Go to the yellow box on the Village Hall wall.
  • Dial 999 and tell them the code on the box.
  • You will given a code by the emergency operator use it to open the box using the keypad.
  • Don’t forget to also ask for an ambulance.
  • Take the equipment to the emergency.
  • The defibrillator will know if the person is having a cardiac arrest, or not.
  • The equipment will talk to you to tell you what to do.

The bigger the raffle the more funds we can raise!

Many thanks!

Playing Fields – new play equipment

The new play equipment was installed in March and we hope it is being enjoyed by everyone.  All the equipment has now been replaced and we should pass many future annual inspections.  We would like to continue adding to new equipment to make it even more exciting for the younger members of our community.

Thanks to Barmby Moor Kids Club for the generous grant, to everyone involved in the project and to everyone who has supported our fundraising events over the years.  Also, thanks to everyone who has agreed to continue with the grass cutting rota – your help is appreciated.

If anyone would like to help and is able to do a one-off small tidying, or maintenance job at the Playing Fields then please email Vanessa at vanessa.wodd@srpfa.org.

 

Saturday Socials 26th May and 30th June

Come along to the Saturday Socials in the Village Hall held on the last Saturday of each month at 10:00am to 12.00pm.

  • On the 26th May the theme is the People’s Pantry
  • On the 30th June the theme is ‘In the Garden’ at Ashlands

The People’s Pantry is a new service for the residents of Market Weighton and Pocklington.  It is open to everyone in need of help to support themselves and their families.  It is a not for profit enterprise ran by volunteers and is a member of FareShare (a charity aimed at reliving food poverty and reducing food waste in the UK).  Membership is being sponsored by the Pocklington District Lions Club.

We are offering a collection point at the back of Seaton Ross church.  Just drop off anything and we will make sure it gets to The People’s Pantry (but no perishables please).

If any resident of Seaton Ross would like to use the pantry, but have transport problems then please phone the Revered Stephen Cope on 01430 626728 in full confidence and he will do his best to try and arrange transport.
