Q is for Quiet......but not for long.
Last Friday, 30th October I organised a breadmaking workshop at our village hall. It proved very popular with 22 joining up. It was led by a local baker, Ed of Backyard Bakery. He discussed his philosophy with us and we had a great morning. We all came away with some bread which we baked at home as we only have one oven in the hall.
I made soup for lunch and it was great to see everybody getting along and having fun. There was a range of people attending - neighbours, people who had heard via facebook and a few of my friends from pottery class.
Saturday was our Pumpkin Fest. Children carved their pumpkins, we served refreshments/lunch, guess the name of the wizard, guess the weight of the pumpkin, traditional skittles and a raffle.
The proceeds from both events gave us a total of £420 for our fundraising.
We are currently working alongside the Town Council to secure funding for Christmas Tree lights. Usually the village pub has a tree but past years have seen this not take place. At a local council meeting we were invited to discuss the lights in the borough. Our village have none so as they have been given some funding they encouraged us to submit a bid - which we have done. We feel the tree should be outside the village hall as this is the focus of the village. Watch this space as we await results. The decorations and tree need to be in situ by November 20th so when I say quiet, I may be this week (and I have a cold) but life will once again get bust very soon.
