Village Hall ‘Sponsor a chair’ appeal – winners

Update to the Village Hall chairs fundraising events (see below for more details on past events:

The 100 square fundraiser for the village hall chairs was won by Erica Kirk and Gill Reid.

Congratulations and “Thank you” to everyone who took part!

***************************************

The new chairs arrived on the 24th October.  

Thank you to everyone who has sponsored a chair so far.  Chairs are still available to sponsor

*********************************************

The fundraising activities were launched at the August Social Saturday and we’ve already raised £780.00.

Thank you to all those who gave so generously.

We still need to raise about £2,000.00 to be able to purchase 60 matching chairs.

***********************************************

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 £45 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.

150 Club

The 150 CLUB

The 150 Club is an important fund raiser for the Village Hall. It means that anyone can support this important village facility even if they don’t immediately need it, plus having at least 48 chances of winning a prize over a year. Much better odds than the national lottery, and for the benefit of the whole village as anyone can hire the village hall.

There are 11 monthly draws of 4 PRIZES- 1 of £25, 1 of £20 and 2 of £10. There is a bonus draw in November with a 1st prize of £100, 2nd £50, and 2 at £20 plus other prizes, so that the prizes for the whole year equal half the funds collected by the 150 Club, which is the legal requirement.  The annual cost for one ticket is only £12, two tickets double your chances of winning.  If you would like to join please contact Anna Sheldon.

The volunteer collector for your road will call to answer any questions and collect subs from the end of February.  If you wish to pay by electronic bank transfer instead of cash or cheque please request bank details and the reference needed from your collector or contact Anna.

The first draw will be on 27 April 2019.

Remembrance Tree

There will be a Remembrance Tree in St. Edmund’s Churchyard, from the 25th November 2018 to the end of December.

Buy a ribbon to put on the tree to remember a loved one (ribbons available in the church).

Donations please of £5.00 per ribbon with proceeds to Martin House Hospice.

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.
