Oh dear, it seems we still have a job vacancy at the village shop. Young Lauren has moved to pastures new, which opens up a vacancy for one person or perhaps two people ‘Job Sharing’. It is a permanent job, and the successful applicant(s) will have to be available to work weekends. There will also be the possibility of extra shifts in busy times; please see Dinah at the shop for more details.
Our wonderful Annual Village Show took place last Saturday, and what a lovely occasion it proved to be. With entries very much up on last year, there was certainly plenty to look at when the hall finally re-opened for viewing; so many beautiful flowers in classic arrangements, cut flowers, and a wonderful selection of all sorts of vegetables and fruit – did you win a prize? There were certainly plenty of opportunities to do so. The hall was well attended with plenty of visitors as well as locals to view the exhibits, and in true A.G style, plenty of refreshments to keep everyone going! There was also a raffle with prizes kindly donated by local folk. What a stunning event, and a huge ‘Well Done’ to organisers Jenny Reynolds and Maggie Sharpe for all their hard work, and indeed a huge ‘thank you’ to all that helped on the day.
It seems that we are still looking for volunteers to help with the Classic Car Show on Bank Holiday Monday. Help is needed on the gates on the field, and also for car parking, and the teas in the hall; please contact Tony Porter for more details.
I did pop up to see A.G’s cricketers in action last Sunday in their home match on the Shooting Field. The boys were playing the mighty East Prawle in one of the few remaining matches of the season. East Prawle played a blinder and raced to 180 during their commendable innings, the top scorer being Neil Douglas who notched up 27 runs. The top bowler for Prawle was R. Sertees, who took 3 wickets. Our boys put up a valiant struggle but didn’t have the necessary fire power to break the Prawle defence. There were highlights; Ian Redstone drove a cracking boundary and Gary Dayment made a creditable 3 runs. A.G’s star performer on the day was Jonathon Reynolds who notched up 20 runs. A.G. finished all out for 51 runs. Next Sunday the guys play Malborough again at home starting at 1.30pm
