Editor’s Notes

Hi Everyone, Sorry for the delay, this was due out at the beginning of October but I have had a very unfortunate accident and broken my ankle.  I am going to be dependant upon my little helpers to get this round to you and I would like to say a big thank you to them in advance.

Rather belatedly, on behalf of the Community, I would like to thank the Ladies of Easington in Bloom for the beautiful flower displays in the Village this summer, I am sure you will agree they have done a grand job. In particular, I would like to thank Jill Gray, who has moved on, for her sterling work on the project from the outset.  Good Luck to you Jill, we hope you will be very happy in Patrington.  Robina has taken over Easington in Bloom and with the kind assistance of a few others has kept the displays looking good. Robina is still on the look out for willing helpers. 650277.

Well Done to Joan Briglin for organising a Coffee Morning and Harvest Auction, thanks to all who donated goods and supported the event, raising a massive sum of £1,158.00.  Due to unforeseen circumstance the event had to be held at the Grandby.  Thanks go to the Landlord and Staff for hosting the event at such short notice and Alan Douglas for the auctioneering.  Oh and not forgetting Yogi for having a sponsored head shave!  Well Done. The proceeds go to All Saint’s Church and the Methodist Chapel.

Lastly I would like to thank and congratulate Toni Cornford for her excellent production of the Skeffling News, it will be sadly missed.

Easington Community Events Committee

Badapple Theatre Company are coming to the village on Tuesday 23rd October at 7:30pm.  This latest performance is called “Eddie and the Gold Tops” and follows the tale of a much loved milkman who finds himself becoming a chart-topping Beat group star, quite by accident.  It is a warm hearted tale set in the swinging sixties and has been described as extremely funny with great songs and great performances.

Theatre Tickets are on sale now an are £8.50 for adults and £5.00 for under 16’s.  Tickets are on sale at Easington Post Office, The White Horse Inn, Easington or Sara on 01964 650337 and will also be on sale at the door.  Please come along and give your support!!!

Thank you. Sarah


On the 8th October, the Evergreens had a trip to Sigglesthorne Nursery & Beverley.  Once again, we picked the best day for the weather and did plenty of shopping.

On Tuesday, 6th November we will be going to Doncaster for our Christmas Shopping.  For anyone who hasn’t been, it’s well worth a visit with over 400 stalls in the market.  Not your usual market stalls, these sell everything you can think of and very cheaply.  Good shops too.

I have a few seats left on the coach.  If you would like to go, please call me on 650753, return price £9.50.  This will be the last trip until we start again in March.  Our Christmas Party will be on 7th Dec.

Youth Club Xmas Fayre 8th December

I can’t believe we are thinking about Xmas but the Xmas Fayre at the Youth Club has been arranged for Saturday, 8th December 2012, when everyone is most welcome.  It will include the usual Tombola,  Raffle, Xmas Crafts and a visit from Father Christmas.

Therefore we would be very grateful if anyone can donate anything for the tombola or raffle, however small.  Any unwanted gifts, spare items or any other suitable tombola or raffle prizes would be gratefully received.  Any items can be taken to the youth club or to Christina Keyworth at 5 South Church Side or to Alison Lusmore at 14 Westfield Close.  Thank you very much.

Square Meal

The Square Meal Team are de-lighted with the number of customers coming to lunch with us on Wednesdays at the Community Hall, but we have found this, together with the fact that we have had so many donations of food, salads, bread rolls and other such has made us a profit tiny, but non the less a profit.  As you know it is not our intent, so we wish to return this to the benefit of the community.

We shall have the very occasional £50 donation to make say three times a year and we are looking for ideas.  The main interests of the Village are covered by the Saturday morning fund raisers, but we are looking for lesser known interests in the area that might benefit from a small donation.  If anyone has any ideas or requests please drop in on a Wednesday lunch time and let us know.  We will do out best to help.
