Christmas Bazaar & Craft Fayre
The Christmas Bazaar and Craft Fayre is on the afternoon of Saturday 25th November in the Village Hall, starting at 2.00pm. The event will feature a Craft area for stalls selling stationery, jewellery and gifts and there will be the usual drinks and refreshments. The Residents’ Association is again organising two tombolas, one for adults and one for children.
We need plenty of donations of bottles and tins, chocolates or sweets (please check the ‘best before’ date), unwanted new gifts, toiletries, toys, games, jigsaws and books, suitable for adults or children.
The tombolas are very popular, so please give generously to ensure fun for all. You may forward items through your Road Rep if they leave you a flyer or you may bring items to the Village Hall on the morning of Saturday 25th from 9.30am. If you have a large amount to donate and cannot make other arrangements, please email this address: firstname.lastname@example.org or phone Janet Idle on 01494 563673.
If you are interested in taking a stall at the Craft Fayre please phone Diana Gibbons on 01494 563257.
Thank you for your generosity and we look forward to seeing you at the Christmas Bazaar when Santa Claus will also be in attendance!
The Hughenden Valley Potter Quiz is held in remembrance of Harry Potter (no not the wizard!) who was a long standing resident of the Valley and for 25 years secretary of the Village Hall committee. As a tribute to Harry since his death in 1990 the annual Potter Quiz was started and the proceeds from the quiz are totally ring-fenced to finance the annual Senior Citizens function.
On the Village Hall Playing Fields at 2pm on Sunday 30th July.
Everyone is very welcome to come, there will be a beer tent and other refreshments along with cream teas. We would also like to hear from prospective cricketers both young and old who would like to play.
Over the past two years Hughenden and Widmer End have each won a game and every game has been exciting.
Please come along and support this annual event.
