We regret to inform you that we have made the decision to postpone the Christmas Social gathering which was to take place on Saturday 4th December, due to the increase of Covid cases in the area.
The winner of the inaugural pumpkin competition was Emmy Tyrell aged 12 from Burmington. Well done Emmy her amazing pumpkin snail was a unanimous winner.
It was a month of firsts for the village hall as we also had the initial village hall coffee morning on the last Thursday of October. It was well attended but we would love more people to come. We would like to invite anyone who is working from home who would like to take a well earned break, parents who are at home and are looking for something to do with the little ones and anyone who has a spare half an hour to come and join us for a cuppa and cake on Thursday January 27th 2022.
The Winter Gathering is taking place in the village hall at 6pm on 4th December. Come and join us for festive treats and mulled wine. There will also be some local mulled cider and Ken’s famous Christmas quiz! Everybody is welcome and we would love to see you all.
There is no breakfast in December, but we are having a New Year’s Day Breakfast on Saturday 1st January 10am - 12pm. If you have friends and family staying over and need sustenance following New Year’s Eve shenanigans, come and join us for a full English that is absolutely the best way to start the New Year. Please book on 07966849149. £5 per person.
22nd January 6.30pm Curry and Quiz - Tables of four £40 per table. Text/call 07966849149 to book.
Thank you to everyone who completed one of our surveys about the village hall. The results made for very interesting reading and will go on to inform our plans for the village hall going forward.
One of the comments we had was that we don’t do anything specifically for children so to remedy that we would like to start a Halloween pumpkin competition for the under 18’s.
The rules are simple:
Use your imagination- you can carve, stencil, paint, add anything that takes your fancy, turn it into a cat, a bat or a witch’s hat. Go crazy! Take a photo and upload it to Instagram. Tag @burmingtonvillagehall and #burmingtonpumpkins before midnight on Halloween.
The competition will be judged by the committee and the winner will receive a £ 25 Amazon Gift Card. We can’t wait to see what you create. 🎃
If anyone over the age of 18 wants to join in there’s a bottle of homemade berry gin for the winner!
Please make sure you put your age on your entry.
SEE EVENTS PAGE FOR DETAILS.
We also have a few dates to go in your diary:
Breakfasts 27th November 2021 10am-12pm and 1st January 2022 10am-12pm.
Winter Gathering 4th December 6pm mince pies, mulled wine, and good cheer!
The fish and chip supper held on the 4th September was extremely popular with lots of people coming to socialise. The weather was surprisingly warm and dry and everyone could sit and eat their fish and chips followed by lots of yummy puddings on the village green. Massive thanks to Irene for all her hard work in organising this event and Dick and Lee for setting up tables and chairs.
Just a quick note from the village hall committee – we have sent out surveys to the villagers to see where people want us to develop the village hall facilities. A massive thank you to everyone who has completed one and a gentle reminder to those who haven’t. If you could please get the completed forms back to your village representative before the end of August it would be appreciated so we can collate and analyse the results ahead of our meeting next month.
We have a couple of dates for the diary : Fish & Chip supper 4th September and also the return of the monthly Village Breakfast on Saturday 25th September 10-12pm. £5 per person. We would really appreciate it if you could let us know if you are coming by dropping a text / call to 07966849149
