Village Bag Collection – Raising Money for School Fund.

Jenny Nixon will be dropping some bags around the village tomorrow. They are bags for school which help to raise money for the school fund. She will drive around on Thursday afternoon (around 3) and pick up any which are left outside people’s houses (will leave instructions with the bags). Alternatively people can take them directly to the school. Black bin bags are fine too.

Please support this initiative for the school if you can.

Adderley Village Lunch

This year the village lunch took on the Queen’s 90th Birthday theme. There were flags, crowns to be decorated, a Royal Toast, patriotic singing we even had themed royal cakes. We also had exceptional food. Thanks has to go to the amazing volunteers, yet again, who make these events such a success: the organising committee, the bar staff, the volunteer caterers, not forgetting the pudding makers and Mr Phil Gadd for providing the entertainment and organising the tickets. Of course, thank you to all the good people of Adderley and their friends who supported the event.
