Sunday 16th September sees the return of the 50/50 Auction and we will be welcoming Edgar Hoddy who has agreed to be our auctioneer. This should be a good day for both buyers and sellers and an opportunity to raise money for both you and the Village Hall, while getting rid of all those unwanted items you may have cluttering up your home, shed, garden or garage! The Village Hall will be open from 10.00 – 4.00 on the day before the auction (Saturday 15th) for you to bring and register your items. (Any unsold items must be taken away after the sale). On Sunday 16th, viewing will take place from 10.00 am, and the auction itself will begin at 11.00 am. For more information contact Robert Ellis on 01508 480914 or Julia Kaye on 01508 480527.
We are delighted to announce that Claxton & Carleton St Peter Community Café has been awarded the highest possible rating of 5 stars by the Government Food Standards Agency. This can be viewed on the food.gov.uk/ratings South Norfolk website. It is good to have our high standards officially recognised in addition to the many compliments regularly received from café regulars. The café is held at the Village Hall on the second Tuesday of every month, from 10.00 – 12.00 with everyone welcome and also features the monthly draw for the 200 Club.
Our very popular Quiz Night took place on Saturday 17th June and was a great success, raising £473.80 for the Village Hall funds. The Woodlarks were the worthy winners coming a whole 7 points ahead of their nearest rivals and a delicious two-course home cooked meal was enjoyed in the half time break. Many thanks to quizmaster Mike Balmer who, as always, did an excellent job of challenging and amusing us with his questions!
