Newsletter - 27th October 2019

If last month’s newsletter felt like the passing of summer into autumn, then this month, we see a definite theme of the darker months morphing into winter and the year’s end.

However, we start with a report on the judging of the South West in bloom competition where the village’s efforts were recognised.

We have our regular insight into the library and its operation using the jolly book bus in the East Street car park. They mention their contribution to the Christmas tree festival which takes place on the last weekend of November, to coincide with the Christmas lights switch on along the High Street and focussing at the weighbridge.

However, we are getting ahead of ourselves. We have some new beginnings as the new classroom at the Primary school was opened late in October by Lord Allen on the same day that the new restaurant at what was the old Church School was opened. The Primary School are also planning an open morning on 14th November particularly targeted at prospective parents.

On the 9th November will see the ever-popular quiz night at the village hall including a fish supper in support of the church and of course the morning after, focus will be on the church as the annual remembrance service takes place.

The Friday morning organ recitals continue at the English Organ School on Chapel lane on 15th November whilst for something entirely different, the great annual fund raiser at the village hall “the Kings command performance” takes place on the following evening.

Have a look at the Heritage pages of the website for news of their November meeting on 18th at Church House.

The Moviola series of film screenings continues on 22 November with “Tolkien”, which explores the formative years of this author.

The WI report on their successful MacMillan coffee morning and their plans for a Christmas shopping trip to Exeter, whilst if you look at the Parish Council pages, you will see that there has been a huge raft of meetings that has taken place in October.

The calendar tries to keep up with all that is going on in the village. Don’t forget, you can add events to your electronic diary at the click of a mouse. If you see something amiss with the diary, please get in touch with corrections and do keep looking back to the news pages as articles are added throughout the month.
