Village Carol Evening - 11 December
The village turned out in force to enjoy another wonderful celebration of Christmas. We are all indebted to Andy Lewis, who ‘realises’ the show, talent spots for contributors, writes much of the sketch material, and comperes it with energy and great good humour. Again, Andy was ably assisted by Malcolm Sutcliffe, who led the singing, Chris and Helen Baines on the production and creative side, and of course Norman Large on piano.
The talent on show was too extensive to give all a mention, but Alec McGivan’s Santa sonnet was widely regarded as his best ever. Brightwell School’s choir group reminded us how exciting Christmas is through the eyes of the children. Behind the scenes, Derek Brooker kept the mulled wine flowing, to keep us all feeling mellow.
As ever, the evening’s proceeds contributed to Christmas hampers for the elderly of the village. We are very grateful to Caroline Annets and the Brightwell Scouts, once again this year, for packing and distributing the hampers.
Village Quiz Evening - Saturday 17 March 2007
The Village Quiz Evening will take place in the Village Hall on Saturday 17 March at 7.30 p.m. True to tradition, last year’s winning team, Red Lion will set the questions. We will be sending entry forms to the teams who took part last year. Anyone else who would like to enter a team should contact me, on 824232. All entry forms will be sent out at the same time. Numbers are limited because of the event’s popularity and the fire regulations, so all applications will be dealt with in strict order of receipt.
