Richard Holmes, Beauchamps

November 23. If you don’t want to miss tomorrow evening’s SONGS4 concert and dinner party in the Hall and don’t already have tickets, it’s worth trying Robert Wheeler (01797 222009) or Gary Marriott (01424 882412) for possible returns.

Next Saturday (December 1) be sure to fit in a visit to the St Mary’s Annual Christmas Fayre, in the Hall between 10.30am and 12.30pm. The well-stocked stalls will include books, bric-a-brac, cakes and preserves, gifts, decorations, new-to-you and jewellery. There will be a tombola and a raffle. Refreshments will include mulled wine and mince pies. If you would like more details, or can offer help or things to sell on a stall, please contact Nan Hacking (01424 882348 or Hackingnan@btinternet.com ). This year there will be a competition for the best Crafty Christmas Characters (open and under 12), to be judged on the lawn during the Fayre.
