What can we say? We’re excited already and it’s not yet Halloween!!!
We’re going to have a village Christmas Tree! Yes! We know!!! It’s almost too much. But there’s more. A request for as many people as possible to light up their gardens and light up the village.
There’s also a Competition for the under 11’s to design a poster. All submissions will be shown on the website but the winner will have their poster used to publicise the event and it will be posted round the village.
Don’t delay there is only one week to design your poster and get it into the village website. Closing Date for poster entries Wednesday 4th November
At the last Council meeting we decided to not open until there had been further relaxation of COVID restrictions. Based on the current requirements we would have to put in a cleaning regime and make sanitising available. In addition it would be very difficult to monitor.
By not cutting the grass acts as a deterrent for using the playground.
The Village Hall committee has agreed to keep the Hall closed for the time being. The situation is being monitored and the Village Hall committee will address this again in August. If things change with the guidelines set by the government the Village Hall committee and the Parish Council will bring the review forward.
The updated noticeboard with rainbows for the NHS, Carers and Key Workers and the VE Day flag looking good against the blue sky. Some very nice person has put bunting and flags round the bus shelter book bank – brilliant!
The flags for the bus shelter and Village Hall were provided by the Parish Council
The Christmas Carols Round The Village raised an astonishing £370 this year for Hope House! Wowzers! This was one of our best year’s so far so an enormous thank you to the hardy few who tramped the streets in the cold and the dark and brought a little Christmas cheer – not always tunefully – to the lovely residents of Adderley.
An extra thank you this year to the people of Adderley Barns who made us so welcome and treated us to mince pies and mulled wine as well as giving so generously. A further thank you to John Fishburn and his family who once again gave us Christmas cheer in a glass of port. We also had chocolates in Green Bank and homemade wines and cake from Hugh in Corbett Drive.
A final thank you to Adderley Village Hall and the bar volunteers who gave us mince pies and welcome respite at the end of the evening.
