FRIENDLY SOCIETY CLUB DAY & CHURCH FETE: 25-26 MAY 2008
The first day of the Club Day weekend went ahead successfully, in spite of the bad weather, culminating in an interesting and enertaining talk at lunch by local actress Angela Barlow.
By Monday, however, the appalling weather had deteriorated to a point where the sports and Church Fete had to be abandoned. The draw for the Fete raffle will now take place at the Strawberry Tea in the Village Hall, and the organisers are already discussing a posponed Fete later in the Summmer - details of which will be posted as soon as they are available.
