With the weather being so miserable of late, it really is very good to have something to look forward to! The Village Hall Committee are going to hold an Art, Craft and Food event in the hall on November 21st. The idea is to showcase local produce and craft items made in the village, all proceeds going to the hall refurbishment project. There will be a Table Top type system with the charge being £10 per table or £5 for a half table. You can get more information from Jan Sorrell and Meg Brett, and there will also be more info on this page nearer the time. Refreshmernts will also be served on the day.
Stephen Harding has resumed the Yoga Classes in the Village Hall on Tuesday evenings fromn 7-830pm. These classes are for beginners and cost £54 for six classes. You can ‘drop in’ as a guest for £11, the classes will run until October 20th. Stephen is available to answer any queries and can be reached on 550612.
Aveton Gifford fun run will be held on Sunday 11th October and is open to all age groups, although children under 9 must be accompanied by an over 18.

Next weekend the Tall Ships Charity Day will take place in the Fisherman’s Rest and there are a lot of activities planned for the day. There will be the usual stalls and any contributions for the raffle and the Tombola would be most gratefully received from all at the pub. A bonus this year is that England’s next match in the Rugby World Cup is next Saturday and the big screen t.v in the Fisherman’s Rest will be turned on in time for the kick off at 8.00pm (after the days events). Next Saturday will be a very busy day in the village and especially at the Fisherman’s, so please support this worthwhile cause. The Tall Ships Charity teaches so much more than sail training, it also provides a chance for youngsters to learn to interact with each other and learn team building skills. The charity has a website Tallships .org and is well worth a look to see just what this wonderful organisation does for young people.
Just a reminder that this year’s Harvest Festival and Harvest supper will start in church at 7pm tonight. The service at St Andrews this week will be Family Communion with Rev Neil Barker.
