there are important issues up for discussion at the AGM this year. There are also a number of posts up for re-election. We all have a vested interest in what goes on in the village so its in everybody’s interest to be there and hear what goes on.
You won’t want to miss this one! Hula-Hoop is coming to Adderley Village Hall. Starting Wednesday 10th Jan at 6:30. Just perfect for keeping in trim or losing those Christmas and New Year excesses. It’s exercise while having fun.
Essential that you book your place by contacting Claire on 07960 616162 or by e-mail to:
Last night’s Carols Round the Village has raised £251.30 to date for Hope House Children’s Hospice – well done Adderley.
A big thank you to everybody who participated by giving of their time, many of them straight from work, gathering in a Christmas huddle and singing with full and throaty voice on a dark and damp December evening.
There are special thanks to those busy Christmas elves who worked in the background: Santa’s little helper who anonymously provided us with silly hats so that we looked the part. Fiona, Margaret and Val who made sure that we were fed when we got back to the Village Hall. Marius and Chris who manned the bar so that we could warm our cockles (always essential after singing for two hours).
A special mention for Alan Hodgson who provided much needed guidance, without which we would never have been organised, and John Fishbourne who was warm, generous and hospitable in equal measure.
If you missed us or if you wish to give us a little more then we will be sending off a cheque sometime between Christmas and New Year so there is still time to leave something at the bar in the Village Hall. Just mention Carols Round the Village.
A little reminder that the carol service at St Peter’s is at 7:00 on Christmas Eve. Be there early for a seat! Then afterwards we will be indulging in light refreshment and more warming of cockles at the Village Hall afterwards.
Merry Christmas one and all.
It’s one sleep before carols round the village. Listen out for singing and when the knock at the door comes give us a smile and make sure you have some change for the bucket. All proceeds to Hope House.
Thos of you who are coming to sing (a good singing voice is helpful but not essential) then we meet at the Village Hall at 18:30 before setting off round the Village.
We should be back at the Village Hall around 21:00 and then there are mince pies and sausage rolls. I’m sure one or two will allow themselves a little warming tot of something from the Highlands – a bit of a tightener – to round off the evening.
An important request from the organising committee for the New Year’s Eve celebration at the Village Hall.
If you have asked for tickets to be kept then you MUST confirm and pay for them as soon as possible.
Numbers for catering are vital and the last thing we want is people saying that they want tickets and then not turning up at the last minute or people turning up at the last minute and not having tickets.
Only three days to go! You should have had your leaflet and hopefully you will be listening and looking out for the village carollers Friday night. Have lots of change at the ready and be prepared to give generously to our annual gift to Hope House Children’s Hospice.
For those of you who will be giving of your voices we gather at the Village Hall at 6:30. From there we will go to St Peter’s Close followed by:
- Station Road
- Green Bank
- Rectory Lane down the hill
- Rectory Lane up the hill
- Meadow Bank
- The Houses on the front
- Corbett Drive
- Back to the Village Hall
We can’t stop at every house so we will try and pick a spot to suit as many people as possible. Volunteers to carry buckets and knock on doors should make yourselves known on the night.
While we hope that everybody has a safe, happy and illness free Christmas and New Year there are always those times when we need access to a chemist or a GP. Please see below details of opening times over the festive season.
Clearly the talents of Adderley know no bounds – brilliant snowmen built this weekend. Well done everybody. As promised we have a gallery of the winners and runners up which will be pinned to the top of the website for the next few days.
The Biggest, at least height wise, was Harry’s 5’2” snowman
The Smallest, with the most details, was The Dutton’s gymnast
The most unusual was tied between The Smale’s and Jos Parsons’ (Sorry guys we couldn’t split them so share the honours)
Honourable mentions to Diana Rosie and Val Nash.
We hope everybody enjoyed themselves.
