Our Royal Wedding day in the village Hall was a great success. Oli Hall (two and a half) and Miriam Swift (eighteen months old) were the perfect Prince and Princess. The hall looked fabulous all decked out with Union Jack bunting, flags, streamers and balloons, and the cake, (thanks Peak Pantry) delicious. The organisation, masterminded by Georgina, extended over many weeks. The wedding was projected from John Tanner’s laptop to the big screen in the Hall, and quite a lot from the village with their friends watched. It all worked very well, despite the occasional pigeon on the aerial… the afternoon party in the Hall was a great success, a wonderful community event. So much food, from so many, everyone taking part. Well done Georgina, John, Marlene, Pat and everyone who helped. There are still a few of the Royal Wedding mugs for sale, cheap at £4 each.
Congratulations and many happy returns to Oliver Lester who was 21 on May 2nd. From all accounts he, and the family, had a great time. The 21st party was at Hassop Hall, a favourite with the family, it was where Oliver’s Dad proposed to his Mum and where they had their wedding reception all those years ago. A special place for them. A week or so before Oliver’s 21st, Phil’s wife Jo had a birthday celebration there as well. Congratulations to her as well.
Remember, Sheldon Day is July 23rd, and Thursday July 21th the Fell Race. The Sheldon Day team will be coming round for donations for white elephant, chocolate, bottles, books and plants on July 19th at 19h00, so start putting things aside for that now. All donations etc. still gratefully received.
One of our treasured younger families, Emma, Reuben and their children are on the move. That is the sad bit because we’ll miss them. The glad bit: they’ve bought a farm not too far away so will be moving there when their house is sold. Congratulations and all success for an exciting new life.
The cream tea rota organised by the newly formed Village Hall Cream Teas Team got under way with the first of its cream teas on May 22nd. There was a separate cream teas in the village hall on Easter Sunday afternoon as part of the preparations for our Royal Wedding celebration day, and that made £130. So a big thank you to everyone who has volunteered to take part in running the cream teas this year, over 20 residents are involved. The next Cream tea is in the village Hall on Sunday afternoon June 26th.
Fascinating coffee morning in May at the Pub when Rev Canon Tony explained what it meant to be now a Canon of the Cathedral. More sermons certainly, red on his cassock, but, as he said with a smile, no more money…congratulations.
Coffee morning: Tuesday June 7th in the Village Hall
Parish meeting: Wednesday June 8th at 19h30 in the Village Hall
