It nearly Village Fete time again(July 14th ) and this years event is to be a little different as our school is joining in with the church organisers this year. They will be having their own stalls to raise money for the PTFA to pay for much needed equipment for our school. The church will bring the usual stalls and attractions including pony rides for the children, a childrens entertainer and of course there will be delicious cream teas in the village hall. The stall will include many favourites with stalls such as the white elephant, books and arts and crafts. There will be a lovely barbeque and ice cream teas too and of course, the Grand Raffle, which will be drawn at the end of the day. Tickets for the raffle can still be bought from me or other church members, just ring the above number.
Our shop is still looking for a new member of staff for the weekend shifts. They will need to be able to work Saturdays and Sundays, as well as cover for sickness and holidays. Please call in to see Peta for more details, our shop is vital to our community, so if this job sounds like you please call in.
There will be some roadworks involving a road closure, at four mile lane by the church.I tried to read the notice but it wasn’t that clear but I think it will start from next Monday,July 9th . Please be careful in this area, things could change with these mobile works, due to the installation of superfast fibre broadband.
Our cricketers had an unfortunate cancellation of their match last Tuesday, due to the Yealmpton ground being double booked! Our boys don’t seem to be having much luck of late, but their next scheduled match is this Sunday, July 8th at East Prawle staring at 2pm. I’m sure they would appreciate some support at this tricky time, I will be popping over to see how they get on, if anybody wants a lift please ring 07779290653
With all this lovely weather it just seems right to remember that the Fisherman’s Rest does have a range of activities, in case the weather does change. There is a skittle alley., large connect game and of course if the nice weather does stay, there are some tables by the stream, just right for al-fresco dining!. Our village has a lot to offer in the coming weeks, so enjoy the weather and the facilities that the community has to offer.
St Andrews PCC went for afternoon tea at the Rectory to meet the new vicars family! Rev Matt’s wife Louise laid on a truly delicious afternoon tea ably assisted by her two young daughters Isabelle and Emily. The afternoon was very much enjoyed by everyone, and it was nice to spend time with them and baby Joshua of course! He was very good, in spite of starting teething! Thank you Louise for a very nice (and delicious ) afternoon. This week St Andrews will have a traditional Holy Communion service with Rev Matt that starts at the usual time of 11am.
