FRENCH EVENING: There will be a French evening at the pub on Saturday June 3 with Django Jazz to entertain you. The menu du soir has flavours of France with choices such as boeuf bourguignon, entrecote grillḗ, tarte provencale, salade nicoise, tarte au citron and crepes suzette. Our chefs for the evening are Messieurs Nicholas Botting et Alex Knight.
ALTAR FRONTALS: Thanks to a generous legacy, St Bartholomew’s Church has been able to commission and have made beautiful new altar frontals, which will be dedicated at a special Songs of Praise service at 4pm on Sunday June 4. Now the needlewomen of the parish are to stitch new altar kneelers. Polly Meynell is offering a free workshop to anyone who would like to help in this task, whether by completing a section or even sewing just a few stitches. Please contact Viv Durne (01435 865682) or Carollyn Stanbridge (01435 866750) if you’re interested, but hurry, because the workshop is today. It will run from 11am to 1pm and 2pm to 4pm.
QUIZ NIGHT: The next pub quiz will be on Monday June 26 at 7.30pm and will be in support of The Youth Counselling project. The subject of stress in young people due to on-line bullying or the demands made on them of reaching the standards expected of them in passing exams, leading in some cases to self-harm and depression is one that has caused much discussion recently. The Youth Counselling project aims to reach out to our troubled young to help them before they reach crisis point. The charge for the evening is £10 which includes the quiz and supper and all profits go to this worthwhile project. Teams are made up of six people and please book your table in advance at the pub.
