Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 29th September

There have been some changes at the Village Shop  with the staff recently; Milla has left to join the Exeter Chiefs Rugby Academy and will continue her education at Exeter College. Well done to her and good luck from everyone at the shop. There is a new young lady now working on Saturdays and her name is Annabel. She was well and truly dropped in at the deep end when she started in August but she has done very well and is now a valued member of the shop team.

Dinah also says that she has always got cardboard boxes if anyone needs them, just call into the shop. Also folk can now have parcels delivered to the shop – if they are out when a delivery is expected, just warn the team when it’s due and they will take delivery. Ooh and here’s a reminder that the Festive Season is not far away! The shop is getting geared up for the Christmas Order season and everything that will make your Christmas the best ever can be ordered from the shop,

It’s incredible but it is Jazz Club night again next Tuesday, October 3rd . This month’s musical guests are Terry Williams Ambassadors of Jazz ; This ever popular band is led by Terry Williams, who grew up playing in local bands playing drums,and piano to jazz and swing. As a teenager he was an original member of the Tone Valley Jazz Band in Taunton, and  has played with many outfits almost too numerous to mention including Beachcombers International,Hearts of England, and with many well known faces such as Guy Fenton, Kenny Baker, Jack Parnell and the Barnstaple Historic Jazz Society Orchestra, to name but a few. Terry has played all over the country, and for this visit to the Jazz Cellar he brings fellow band mates Andy Mayes, drums;Colin Frechter. keyboard; on vocals Dave Hanratty; bass and guitar Richard Madelin; Roger Bond, guitar; Geoff Nicholls, Clarinet and sax. Certainly a night to look forward to, especially now that the evenings are drawing in, what better way to enjoy music? Not forgetting of course, that the Early Bird menu will be in place at the Fisherman’s, enabling people to eat and socialise before the music starts. The meals must be pre-ordered  by the Monday, 2nd October the cut off time being 6pm. For more details please phone the Fisherman’s Rest on 550284.
