With this week promising some wild winter weather it’s good to look back to the wonderful warm summer that we enjoyed last year, and we can do that by thinking about our wonderful Cricket Team and their exploits of the cricketing season. The Annual Cricket Club Dinner is due to take place at the Fisherman’s Rest on February 7th , and tales of many an innings will no doubt abound! There will be the usual presentations of top batsman, bowler etc., as well as the usually brilliant food too. For more details contact Richard Bain, Richard Cole or the Fisherman’s Rest. The team will also be enjoying some practice in the nets, which will be on Sunday mornings in Kingsbridge Sports Centre, starting on March 22nd , between 11.00 am and 12.30 pm, not a bad way to get fit after Christmas.
The Village Hall Committee held another “Soup and Pud” lunch on Saturday, which again proved very popular. There were two unusual soups on the menu this week with Brocoli & Stilton and Vegetable & Bacon making an appearance, all home made and served with fresh bread. Two delicious puds were also on offer, a ginger pudding and apple pie, both served with custard and all for just £5 per person, to raise funds for the Hall refurbishment project. The committee wish to thank all those who supported the event. The next one will be held on Saturday 14th February, 12.00 – 2.00 pm. Please support this, and maybe enjoy a romantic lunch as well .
Oh dear, a mysterious disappearance has occurred in the village. The much needed sack truck used by the shop staff has been misplaced – does anyone know where it has gone? It is a vital piece of equipment to move heavy milk deliveries around the shop building, and it has been missing about a week now. It’s a pretty standard looking sack truck, but does have the name Ashton painted on the shelf, so please do keep an eye out for it.
Just a reminder that the regular Monday Club still meets in the Hall every week from 3.00 – 4.30 pm. Also that table tennis evenings are held in the Hall on Wednesday evenings 7.00 – 9.00 pm. These sessions are £1.50 each and equipment is provided; there are two tables available to use each session.
In St Andrew’s this week we have a service of Morning Prayer which starts at 11.00 am. This week is an all female affair with yours truly leading and Joanna Smith giving the talk. Well done to Jo, as it’s the first time she has taken to the lectern.
