Tonight (Fri 27th) is Irish Music Night at The Royal Oak from 8.30pm, be sure to get here early if you want to be close to the music as it’s sure to be a busy evening!

Then, if live music is your thing, don’t forget that Jazz Night is on Wednesday 1st August when excellent local band the New Orleans Rhythmakers will be performing Traditional Jazz from 8pm. Last month saw music lovers dancing and singing around the bar and atmosphere was excellent. For reservations for either of these events (and don’t forget admission is FREE) please call 01424 870492.

There are still a few tickets left for the next Psychic Nights evening at The Royal Oak on Saturday 4th August. This time local master palmist Robin Lown will be joined by popular psychic medium Grant Colyer who has appeared on Sky TV and Psychic TV on numerous occasions. Tickets are just £10 each and the fun starts at 8pm. Call Alex on 01424 870492 for more details.

We will be trying a selection of Rose wines at the next wine-tasting at The Royal Oak on Saturday 11th August at 9pm. These tastings always turn out to be good fun as we compare the different wines (one taste of each is often never enough!!) Tickets are just £5 per head, so if you’d like to come along, please let Alex know on 01424 870492.

The next Village Hall Jumble Sale is on Saturday August 4th, doors open 10am. If you have any good quality jumble you wish to donate - clothes, toys or bric-a-brac, please drop off at the pub, or call Angie on 01424 870087 who may be able to organise collection. We’re also always grateful for any helpers who might be available the afternoon before or on the day! All the proceeds go to the maintenance of the Village Hall, for Village Hall bookings, please call Ken on 01424 772997.
