Reminder: Pub night tonight!

Come and mingle with your friends and neighbours. All the usuals – food, drinks  and pub games. All welcome from 6:30pm to 10:30pm. Get there early to make sure you don’t miss out on the delicious home-cooked food. This month’s pub night coincides with National Vegetarian Week so there will be a definite theme to the food!

Village Pub Night: Friday 19th May

Come and mingle with your friends and neighbours. All the usuals – food, drinks  and pub games. All welcome from 6:30pm to 10:30pm.

Plant sale 20th May

Just a reminder that the Annual Plant Sale from Bellingdon, Asheridge and District Horticultural Society is on Saturday, 20th May, at 10-12noon at Bellingdon Village Hall.

Locally grown bedding , basket and veg plants and some perennials.

Also lovely cakes, coffee and tea to enjoy!

Look forward to seeing you there.

Community Defibrillator

The eagle-eyed among you will have spotted a new cabinet next to the main entrance to the hall, containing an automated external defibrillator, for community use. While the AED is designed so that someone with no knowledge of first aid can use it, we will be running a training session in the near future.

Fete planning: Thursday 11th May

The planning goes on for this year’s (sure to be) epic fete on 24th June – get it in your diaries now! We’ll be at the Blue Ball in Asheridge from 8pm on 11th May so if you’d like to help feel free to pop over and say hi.

Any offers of help either on the day or before are always welcome – we’ll also be at the pub night on Friday 19th (see below) if you’d like to chat with one of the committee about how you can help.

Any raffle prizes would also be most welcome. Contact us on fete@bellingdon.com if you can help with anything, would like to book a programme advert or stall for the day.
