Christmas Bazaar & Craft Fayre With Tombola – Saturday 26th November

santaFrom Clare Atkinson

The Christmas Bazaar and Craft Fayre is on the afternoon of Saturday 26th November at 2.00pm in the large Village Hall. The event will feature a Craft area for stalls selling stationery, jewellery and gifts and there will also be hot food, as well as the normal 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, unwanted new gifts, toiletries, tins or chocolates (please check the ‘best before’ date), toys, games, jigsaws, books and sweets, suitable for adults or children.

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 26th from 9.30am to 11.30am. If you have a large amount to donate and cannot make other arrangements, please email this address: tombola@hughendenresidents.org or phone Clare Atkinson on 01494 564792.

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!

Hughenden Valley v Widmer End Cricket Match Sunday 19th July

SUNDAY JULY 19th at KING GEORGE V FIELD

HUGHENDEN VALLEY FRIENDLY MATCH v WIDMER END
2pm until about 6pm

The Village Shop will be open for delicious refreshments, or bring a picnic with your friends and bask on the hillside. As there is no Village Day this year come and meet friends and support your team.

We have already been informed that parking may be a problem as the Village Hall is booked for a big private event. Hopefully most people will walk to the field, but another parking site may be arranged.

We have two umpires, but we are really keen for those who could bowl an over or two, or wield a bat (over 16yrs) to get in touch with Simon Kearey by email to (simonkearey@gmail.com or by phone on 07956 183262).
