Help for Holcot

Lesley Pomeroy is forming a group of volunteers that will help village people with routine jobs. If you feel you can help, please contact Lesley on 781246. Lesley will then arrange a meeting to talk about what might be needed and what can be done. There are three volunteers so far, and a few more would make this initiative a reality.

Saturday’s quiz and a date for your diary

The Batter and Banter quiz night on Saturday was a great success, and enjoyable as always. The evening raised £630 for the village hall.

The next charity Batter and Banter quiz will be on 7 March 2015 at 7pm for 7:30 start. The charity being supported is focused on the asbestos-related cancer mesothelioma.

Jackie and Deryck Watson will be organising the event again – to book your table ring them on 781131.
