The Fauls Singers Evening At St Peter’s

Entrance to St Peter's Church

The Fauls Singers concert at St Peter’s Church on the 18th of May turned out to be a great village event with some 50 attendees plus 30 from The Fauls Singers, a packed house.

There was a varied programme from a Beatles Medley to Puccini’s Nessun Norma to a fast hand clapping round of Hava Nagila, duets on the keyboard and a medley of Welsh Hymns.

The interval refreshments were generous platters of delicious homemade savouries accompanied by wine.  Chris Lewis gave the introduction and vote of thanks. Thank you to all who came to support and to all who helped to make the evening so enjoyable.

Its hard to believe but its time for Coffee again!

Coffee Morning Header
Cakes

Yes, last Saturday in the month is this Saturday 25th May, and that’s Coffee Morning, 10.30-12 in the village hall.

There are always lush cakes, good conversation and the chance to find out a bit about what’s going on in the village or just catch up with friends.  

If you are new to the village, or you have neighbours who are new to the village, why not bring them along to the village hall.  You can be sure of a warm welcome and the chance to meet a few lovely people.  If you know someone lives on their own and may feel a bit anxious about coming along without some moral support why not offer to pick them up?  Its hard to walk into a room on your own so if you would like to come but want someone to meet you just ring Val Nash on 07814 071 254 and she will sort something for you.  

Look forward to seeing you there. 

Can You Spare An Hour For A Great Cause?

The Village Hall is putting on a brilliant event in aid of Hope House Children’s Hospice. Can you find an hour (just an hour) to support this event to help raise funds for this worthy cause. Every year Adderley support Hope House through a number of events (Carols round the village is one example). The Village Hall is looking for people to give an hour of their time to help with the June event in aid of this charity.

Adderley Heritage Launch a HUGE success

What a day we had.  Between 120 and 140 people came through the door during the day, with a packed hall for the opening speeches from Paul Nash on behalf of the Parish Council, Val Nash, Chair of the Heritage Project, a message from Christopher Corbet who is the patron of St Peter’s Church and member of the Corbet family, now living in Moreton Corbet,   and the real star of the show Geoff Butter, whose collection is what the Heritage project is all about.  Funded by Heritage Lottery, the safety and accessibility of the Adderley Heritage is secure for generations to come.

People came from far and wide, who grew up, went to school or lived in Adderley, as well as many of the current residents who wanted to find out more about their home village.  It was a day filled with memories, exclamations and laughter as people went through the archive and found pictures of their younger selves, friends, family or their ancestors.   Discoveries were made such as the photograph from 1880’s showing live bears on the lawn at the old rectory, a village brass band playing at a fete in 1884, photographs and the story of the family who came to live in Adderley after the First World War after visiting their relative a soldier convalescing at Raven House.  So many treasures to capture and cherish.  

Geoff brought thousands of pictures, maps and books as well as press releases and much more, and people attending brought their own memorabilia for us to borrow or add to the archive to share with everyone via the website.   

A few pictures of the day and the trail signs.  If you haven’t already, you may want to take the Heritage Trail starting at the village hall and walking via Station Road to the canal and church.  Tell us what you think on the Heritage website www.adderleyheritage.co.uk and more pictures will be loaded onto the Adderley heritage website archive eventually as Saturday will be part of our history won’t it?
