Editor’s Notes

Hello Everyone, My apologies for the delay, we are having a roller-coaster ride at present.  I am sure you will all be aware that sadly my father-in-law Ken Horncastle died on the 29th October.

He was a brilliant worker for the Community, holding positions on the Youth Club Committee, Gala Committee, he was a Church Warden. member of the local branch of the British Legion, the Buffs and of course, he travelled our Parish on Christmas morning for many years as Father Christmas. He was a great character and I am sure will be remembered by all of you. There will be an article on his very interesting life in the Gazette shortly.

Anyway onwards and upwards. We do have very good news, our Son Matthew and partner Anna had a beautiful baby girl, Sophie May on the 27th October in Australia.

Anyone fancy standing for the Parish Council. Elections are coming up in May new blood would be good! Not that there is anything wrong with the old Councillors, they do a grand job.

Christmas Trees

Unfortunately due to rules and regulations (and cranky old legs) the Lads are no longer going to be able to put Christmas Trees up! Very sad.

They have done a grand job over the years and I would like to say a big thank you on behalf of the villagers to Mike, Colin, Richard, Brian, and Chris.

However, you all have the brackets now, so what is to stop you doing your own?

Anyone who had lights last year can obtain a set from Chris Jacobs but they should be aware that they will not have been tested.

Have a Happy Christmas & New Year.

2010 Bogey Race

This years event was a great success in its aim to raise money for Dove House.  With all the events, in addition to the actual race, a total of £2030 was raised.

However the race itself only attracted one adult and 2 Children’s bogeys and the organisers are wondering if the event has lost its appeal and should we bother with another race?

Feedback on this would be appreciated before a decision is made on whether to continue.  Our thanks to everyone who supported this years event.

Church News

Again, many thanks, especially those who gave up beard and hair!

Joan would like to add her thanks for the support given to the Harvest Coffee Morning, Quiz Night and Auction, with special thanks to Jim, Yogi, Sue, Bob and Alan Douglas.

Halloween Dance

The Halloween Dance went with a Bang, literally.  The Electricity blackout somewhat spoiled the event, however not to be put off the Dance will go on.

It will now be held in the Community Hall on Saturday, 27th November.  The entertainment is provided by popular local band ‘Licks’ with a licensed bar until 12.30am.

Tickets are priced at £5 and can be obtained from Helen Jacobs on 01964 650402 or The Granby.

(Tickets purchased last time around are still valid)

The Evergreens had a little trip this month to Hessle and Beverley and we managed to pick the one day when the sun was shining and not a rain drop in sight.

Quite an experience for some members who had never been to Hessle before in their lives and some who hadn’t been for at least 50 years!

Everyone was well impressed with the variety of shops and a lot of shopping was done.

Next month will be our annual pilgrimage to Grimsby for Christmas shopping and then a break till the end of March when we begin our travels again.

For those of our members who were lucky enough to receive an invitation to Robina’s 80th Birthday Party, a big thank you for a fabulous night.  Looking forward to your 90th Robina!

Our thanks also to Di for doing the Newsletter and we wish all your readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
