AGM – 24 September 2013
A big thank you to everyone who attended our AGM. Our Treasurer Susannah was pleased to be able to report that £3,559 was distributed to various clubs and charities in the Village and that £3,000 had been given to help fund the refurbishment of the Tennis Courts that we had been holding on behalf of the Tennis Club. We also provided Hampers for the Elderly in the village, with the generous support of the Fairthorne Trust.
We would like to record our sincere thanks to Jim and Madeline Sanger, who this year lent us their garden for the Fete.
Two of our committee members, Helen Baines and Julie Collum, left this year, we are grateful for all their hard work and dedication over the years. We are delighted that Sarah Jackson, Caroline Annets, Bill Horsfield, John Burdass, Andy Lewis, Graham Adlard and Charlotte and Mike Woods, were all happy to be re-elected. The Secretary (Laura Evans) and Treasurer (Susannah Magnion) and Chairman (James Davys) were also elected. Jim Sanger has kindly agreed to be Auditor again this year
Treasure Hunt – Sunday 20 October
Despite torrential rain and strong winds about thirty brave and hardy people took part in this Event and reported back that they had all had a good time. Congratulations to everybody who took part and especially to the joint winners- Three Boys on Bikes and the Old Ones. Many thanks to our Committee Members who organized this event and stood out in the rain to man the various stations
Carol Evening – Monday 9 December at 7:30 pm in the Village Hall
If you haven’t got into the Spirit of Christmas yet (or even if you have!), come and enjoy a fun-filled, festive frolic for all ages at the Carol Evening, where the talent of Brightwell will be once again on display. Andy Lewis and Anthony Finn host carol singing, poetry reading, musical interludes, sketches and mince pies, all washed down with Derek Brooker’s mulled wine. Christmas Hampers
The profits from the Carol Evening are used to purchase hampers for older members of the village. If you know of anyone over the age of 70, whom you believe does not currently receive a hamper but would appreciate one, please notify Laura Evans by email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Village Quiz Evening – (date to be confirmed) in the Village Hall
We plan to send entry forms to all teams that took part last year. Anyone else who wants to enter a team should contact me on 834195.
