A message from Jackie and Deryck Watson announcing the results of a great night.
We are very pleased and delighted to announce that last night’s Eleventh Banter and Batter Quiz raised £525 for Great Ormond Street Hospital. Really good going when you consider that our outgoings were a total of £625 (£415 for fish and chips, £35 for quiz master, £75 hire of village hall, £100 spent on the 1st, 2nd and Booby quiz and raffle prizes).
We are so grateful and proud of the commitment and support we receive from quiz attendees new and old plus donations given by those not able to come.
So, in a nutshell, together we have raised plenty of ‘DOSH for GOSH’!!! We’ll be letting Great Ormond Street Hospital know tomorrow. A big thank you again to EVERYONE.
Date for your Diary. The next Banter and Batter Quiz is Saturday 19 October., when we will be raising money for Holcot Village Hall. Bookings have already been taken so please book early to avoid disappointment as last night’s was an absolute sell out!! It really is a fun evening and all are welcome. With your help we are putting the FUN back into FUNd raising. Whoop Whoop!!!
The Parish has a tennis court that any parishioner can use for a nominal annual sum.
We are seeking one or two people who can take on the administration associated with the court – basically collect annual fees, change booking sheets on the notice board and administer changes to keys etc. This amounts to just a few hours a year.
If you are willing to take on this role please contact Lisa (email@example.com) as soon as possible.
Another easy way to support our Parish Church! The church runs a Thunderball lottery, based on the Thunderball number, given out each Saturday by the National Lottery.
We already have one list of 14 members and are now starting another. 4 numbers have already been taken, 10 to be filled. It costs just £1 per week. This can be paid yearly -£52, half yearly -£26 or in smaller installments if preferred.
You have a number between 1 to 14. If your number comes up, you get £7 and the Church gets £7. Winners both ways!
Please join us and help us preserve our beautiful church.
John Henry Group, on behalf of Gigaclear, have requested a number of closures to allow for the installation of a new telecommunications network.
The project in the area will commence on the 7th January 2019 and is expected to be completed by the 3rd April 2019. As you will appreciate there has already been some works taking place using traffic signals within the area and the closures will commence when signed on site giving a minimum of 10 working days’ notice.
With Rectory Lane, Holcot residents will have access although they will need to wait to be escorted through the works.
Plans showing the closures and diversions can be viewed below:-
