Adderley BIG Switch On For Christmas 21

So I bet you are getting as excited as us now, and we want to give you all the details of Adderley BIG SWITCH ON event on Friday 3rd December in Adderley Village.

Santa and VIP guest Mrs Claus (how honoured are we?)will be jointly doing the inspection of the external decorations at your house starting at 6:00 to make sure there is enough light for Rudolph to see on Christmas Eve when he and Santa bring your presents.     So,  get cracking with the decorations, and please ask if you need any help with this or if you have an elderly neighbour see if they would like to take part and need any help – its nice to be able to take part.  Remember, it doesn’t have to be lights, you could just decorate a window or doorway with something Christmassy.  

The Route and plan

The inspection will start from Station Road, go over to Adderley Hall Barns, then down St Peters Close, back along Green Bank, into Meadow Bank, down Rectory Lane to the main road, back along Corbett Drive and onto the Green.  Please have your lights on ready for inspection from 6.00pm, the elves will be helping Santa with the inspection.    

Then at around 7.00 pm we will all gather on the Green for the BIG SWITCH ON.  Once we have duly admired our beautiful village tree we will head into and around the village hall to enjoy some festive mulled wine and, possibly, a hot dog or a burger and rumour has it that the school may have a stall with iced biscuits.  (Just keep an eye on the elves though, they do love a mince pie or 5 and they are only really allowed one! )

New Playgroup In Adderley Village Hall

Adderley welcomes a new playgroup which will open from Wednesday 8th September, 9.45am -11.30am. We are welcoming donations (to supply healthy snacks) and volunteers. 

Adderley village hall is welcoming new baby & toddler group for Wednesday mornings. All children under the age of 5 are welcome with their parents, grandparents, carers & childminders. 

The group will run term time on Wednesdays between 9:45am and 11:15am. 

It shall be a free group to attend however donations are welcome to enable the group to provide the children with healthy snacks, arts & crafts and messy play. So far Morrison’s have kindly gifted us food towards the group and Adderley hall are providing the tea and coffees. Special thanks should be given to Phil Glad who is part of the village hall committee allowing the group run. We hope it’s a great community asset in bringing together parents & preschoolers especially after an isolating time for new parents during the pandemic. 

The group has lots of great toys & books all of which have been donated by the general public to help set it up. It shall have a baby area for none walkers and the hall is a large space for preschoolers to run around and enjoy themselves. 

We are currently looking for additional volunteers to help with the group. Even on a time share basis would be of great help. This will involve setting up the toys ready for the group to start, helping with drink & good and cleaning up afterwards. 

For more information please search for Adderley playgroup via Facebook. 

Puddings And Prosecco

A great time was had by all on Friday night at the Puddings and Prosecco evening. Sheila Greetham has sent us some pictures.


Thank you to everyone who came to the Puddings & Prosecco Evening last Friday night.  We had a very successful event, and a fantastic range of puddings with plenty of prosecco to go with them.  Many thanks to everyone who supported it, in any way, but especially to everyone who made and donated the delicious puddings, making the night such a sweet success!!  Thank you also to Adderley Village Hall Committee for allowing us to use the Hall whilst it’s going through a fabulous “makeover”.

Thank you all 😊

Our next social/fundraiser will be on Wednesday 1st September with the “MicWire” singers plus special guests.  This is being held in the beautiful, old part of St Peter’s Church,  acclaimed by professional musicians for its fantastic acoustics.  If you’ve never been in there before & heard live music, now’s your chance!  Put the date in your diary & look out for further promotion nearer the time!!

Looking forward to seeing you all again
