Village Hall Task Force Day

There must have been at least 30 people turned up through the day last Sunday to help out and just about all the tasks on the huge list were completed!

Anne & the list!

 Anne W who was ‘in charge’ was absolutely chuffed to bits with the response and so was June,  jointly responsible with Anne for the maintenance activities of the VH.

Sustinence by Joy & Margaret

June & Colin brought homemade soup to fortify the workers and then set about the upholstered chairs and cakes and biccies were made and organised by Ann, Fiona, Joy  Margaret & Laura, Joy and Margaret were keeping the troops going all day with continual refreshments.

David E ably assisted by Owen was heaving out the wooden tables for cleaning which then evolved into preservation as Fiona found there was a touch of woodworm.  Meanwhile Ann Walker was cleaning all the metal tables indoors. Freda will be pleased that the tiles have been put up in the toilets, here you can see the evidence of Nigel’s hand.

Table Cleaning Team

Nigel and Fergus got onto the porch roof and sorted the leaks and Mike R was ‘persuaded’ by Dave & Pete to squeeze into a very small space to put some stabilizer into the heating system.  From inside the space a distant voice was heard to say “This is great, the old team is back together again!”

Mike Stuck?

Viv cleaned the millenium textile which she had desinged 12 years previously.  Caroline cleaned all the windows inside and Deborah & Lynne on the outside with Rosie and her long handled mop.  Geoff worked his magic with the paintbrush along with Rich and Angela set about the front door with gusto.

Angela Front Door Shine

Linda, Ken and Trish tackled the shrubbery aided by Rob, and Dave, Peter and Pete finally found the roadside water stop cock, unknown for at least ten years whilst Tim uncovered the fire hydrant!

Andrew turned up just in time to scrape the the peeling plaster and Mike Y offered his expertise in sorting out some of the windows and the paths.

Anne and Pete would really like to thank everyone who took part, it was a brilliant day and a perfect example of the community getting together to achieve something really really good.

Village Hall Volunteers Reminder

On Sunday 19th February we’re having a bit of a tidy up and could do with a few of the good citizens of the Parish to pop along and give us a hand, doesn’t matter for how long you can make it.
The picture says it!

Hey it was 4 to 5 inches of snow by this morning, drifting to 6″ and the temperature overnight went down to minus 4 in our garden.
Can you better that?

Seasonal stuff

Where did all the snow flakes come from?

Saturday Social

Hey what a good morning, organised by the Parish Council a fair few organisations were represented. Apart from the Village Hall other tables were occupied by the Parish Council, Heritage Group, Garden Club, WI, Women in Harmony, the Church and the Parish Website.
There was hand bell ringing in the Meeting room (lovely sound), and a book swap table that did a roaring trade.
The website peeps had a lot of interest; the website was live in the hall and visitors added comments, put on some jokes, entered their email addresses to receive updates from the website (this is quite separate from the community email list) and enjoyed a virtual tour round the villages!
Once again those who did not turn up missed a real treat, there was a real friendly buzz in the air and there was talk of doing it again in the new year.

Oh and the goodies to go with the excellent coffee were scrumptious, thanks to all who made them!

Quiz Night

Well it was a great night, all those that didn’t come missed a treat. Around 40 quizzers attended and the quiz itself was absolutely brilliant thanks to Mr Quiz himself, John Thompson.
There was some exitement too as Anne White & Geoff Walker, who went to get the pies (for the pie & peas – and all for a fiver!), were standing outside the butcher’s shop in Norton where the pies were clearly not in the oven and the door was locked! Plan B was to go to Morrisons but they saw a Fish & Chip shop right next door. The chippie owner said I’ve only got 50, do you want them?
Anyway Anne & Geoff, the heroes of the hour, arrived back at the Villlage Hall, only 1/2 hour late and we tucked in.
