A recent thank you.

Thank you so much for allowing us to hire the Village hall and pavilion for our wedding reception. It is an amazing venue in an
idyllic setting.
From our initial meeting of several months ago until we finished on Sunday morning we have felt cared for and supported in all the plans that we put in place. Thank you.

The hall, kitchen, toilets, decking etc were all in immaculate condition.    The tables were perfect and chairs clean and comfortable. We were amazed at the range of equipment available, including the lovely mixture of traditional china which was perfect for a wedding reception with a vintage theme.

Village Hall has Roots

 A select gang of worthy Villagers helped plant three trees beside the new Village Hall recently

A select gang of worthy Villagers helped plant three trees beside the new Village Hall recently

Three trees were paid for from the collection taken at Jocelyn Russell‘s 100th birthday party and replace the copper beech Jocelyn had planted some years ago that was removed to make way for the new Hall.

This tree is a Sweet Gum (Liquidamber styraciflua Worplesdon). The tree planted between the two buildings is a Flowering Pear (Pyrus Calleryana Chanticleer) and a third – an Oak has been planted beyond the football pitch.

Really helpful advice was received from the North Dorset Tree Officer Sandie Saunders, our resident arboricultural expert Peter Palmer supervised and Mark Farwell generously provided a digger to make the holes and carry the heavier trees.

HRH The Duchess of Cornwall officially opened the new Village Hall on Sunday, aided by the  grandchildren.

Many onlookers came to support the official opening of the Village Hall, when the Duchess of Cornwall and her sister Annabel were warmly welcomed by the village.   The Duchess talked to many of the people involved in the funding, planning, building, and marketing of the building, not to mention those who provided refreshments and a wonderful array of cakes for all to enjoy.
