Thank you to everyone in Claxton & Carleton St Peter who has returned their Village Hall Questionnaire. If you have not already done so, please return it as soon as possible as we are keen to look at the responses given by villagers to make sure the Village Hall is offering people what they want. Details of how to do this are on the questionnaire, but the simplest ways are probably to give it to any committee member or bring it to the next Community Café. If you would like someone to call to pick it up, please ring Rosie Gidlow on 01508 480173.
If you have ever attended an event at the Village Hall but have been put off by the poor acoustics, we have great news! We have had acoustic panels fitted in early May. We are sure they will greatly enhance the enjoyment of our events and will make coming to the Hall a much more comfortable experience for many of you who may have found the acoustics a problem in the past. The acoustic panels are the first element of our ongoing improvement and refurbishment of the Hall and we are hoping for lots of support for our fundraising events to support these.
The next event is our ever popular Quiz Night which returns on Saturday 16th June. Please arrive from 7pm for a prompt start at 7.30pm. Tickets are £10 and include a two course home-cooked meal (with a vegetarian option), with drinks available at the bar. Teams should be a maximum of 6 people, but if you are less than six or on your own and would like to link up with others to form a team of six, we will be happy to arrange this with you either before or on the night. To book a place for this very popular event, ring Julia Kaye on 01508 480527.
Our new 200 Club is underway with the first draw having been made at May’s Community Café. The way it works is that numbers between 1 and 200 are sold at £1.00 per number per month (so £12.00 if you join at the beginning of the year reducing by £1.00 per month for later joiners). Every month one lucky number wins half the income (up to a maximum of £50). The balance goes towards much needed funds for the Village Hall. There are still plenty of numbers left to buy, so if you are interested or need more details contact Mike Balmer on 484162 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sunday September 16th sees the return of the 50/50 Auction. Details to follow, but do think about sorting out your unwanted items so they can be sold to raise money for both you and the Village Hall.
The Community Café opens to all every second Tuesday of every month from 10.00 – 12.00, where you can be assured of a warm welcome, delicious drinks, cakes and savouries and the opportunity to chat and find out about what is happening locally. Do come to next month’s Café to find out what a difference the acoustic panels have made!
