On Saturday October 20 (tomorrow!!) the Memorial Hall Committee will hold a Grand Clearance Sale at the hall from 1.30pm. There might be some exciting bargains from furniture and appliances to china, books, toys etc. Everything must go! Casual bookings for the pavilion instead of the hall can still be made through the hall caretaker, Jackie Brooks (222654) but there will be no Saturday bookings due to football fixtures. The hall committee would like to thank all the volunteers who are helping to ready the hall for the refurbishment work (no mean feat!) which starts on October 22. We can look forward to our newly refurbished hall hopefully opening up next summer - I can’t wait!

A reminder about the Link Romania shoebox appeal (filling a shoebox with everyday items such as soap, toothpaste, shampoo, combs, socks, crayons and colouring books etc.) Your gift of a shoebox would bring such happiness to the people who receive them so if you would like to support this charity this year then please collect a leaflet from Peasmarsh Church or contact Sue Cavilla Tel: 23043.

Also please remember that Sing for Fun is re-starting on Wednesday October 24, 2.00 - 3.30pm at Peasmarsh Pavilion, all welcome! (Note change of venue and day.)
