Barn Dance – Town Hall - 7.30pm Sat 11th November

We are sold out of tickets for the Barn Dance, so we would ask that if you have tickets and are not coming to return them, so we can give them to someone else.

We are also asking if you are feeling generous to bring a raffle prize or pudding or both. We will provide the cheese and biscuits.

Reminder – please bring your own drink and glasses. We will be serving Boeuf Bourgignon, but if you have special dietary requirements please contact Cathy Atkins at her email (


AGM – Jenner Hall - 7.30pm Mon 22nd January

The format for the evening is that we start with the AGM, which is free, then we move on to skittles and chilli part of the evening which is £5.00 per adult

If you would like to join the committee or know someone, you think should be on the committee, please don’t hesitate to let me know at my email (

Wanted volunteers to cook the chilli, we normally have three chefs, one of whom does a vegan version. The chilli is served with baguettes and butter.
