10 May 2013Missing Cat
Has anyone seen our much loved pet. His name is Ben and he is a tabby and white neutered male, he is just under a year old, he has dark black lines down his back and a white nose, and he is a slender cat. He went missing from Coronation Terrace late afternoon/early evening on Tuesday 7th May. If you have seen him or have any information as to where he could be please call 488020.
Thank you, Clare
Clare now adds:
It is with great sadness that I am writing to say that my cat has been found and is no longer with us. A big thank you goes to Bridget and her son in finding him and contacting us, and also to anyone who looked out for him, may he rest in peace.
23 March 2013A Life With Ships
David Blincow's illustrated presentation which described his working life looking after ships of all types and sizes in various parts of the world from Europe to Japan was very well attended last night and raised a very worthwhile £235.00 for the Village Hall Restoration fund.
Money going into the Restoration fund is vital if we are to ensure that the fabric of the hall lasts not only for present times but into the future as well.
Thanks for last night also go to Stephanie and Kay for preparing the food, all those who supplied free of charge the raffle prizes and of course those who kindly remained behind to help clear the hall.
While talking about raising money, the Village Hall Coimmittee also wishes to thank Denise Bearne who contributed £188.00 to the Restoration Fund from proceeds of the Craft Sale a week last Saturday.
Recent major works in the hall have been the replacement of the floor as well as the replacement of the roof. There have also been numerous small improvements an example being the refurbishment of the front step into the hall.
Future improvements will be to the car park with improved lighting and surface as well as additional storage facilities, an improved kitchen and toilet area and a number of other projects all designed to make our village hall a centre to be enjoyed by village residents.
