The Results Are In!

A BIG thank you to everybody who contributed to the Village Hall questionnaire. The results are below and curry nights, parties, cheese and wine and film nights were the most popular suggestions with plant sales, Italian evenings and quiz nights close behind.

There were also some excellent suggestions from people in the village such as something social for younger people, family evenings with activities for younger children and an under 16’s disco.

Other suggestions included live Jazz, occasional courses such as Christmas wreath making and courses in yoga or tai chi in the evenings.

There were also a number of offers of help and the village hall social committee will be in touch.

What next? We have the quiz and Curry Night on the 24th and tickets for the New Year’s Eve party are now on sale (and going fast). The committee will be meeting in November to start thinking about a programme for 2016.
