The Village Supper last month was as merry as ever and a great way to meet new people. Rev Nicholas and Jill Todd (pictured) did a grand job at keeping everyone hohohoing as they sold raffle tickets, we feasted well and raised over £250 into the bargain.
First up for 2014 is a Valentine’s Day special on Friday February 14th, when talented musicians Ben & Alfie will fill the church with music from around the world. Thanks to Sandra Law for organising this. Then on Friday February 28th, there’s the Kid’s Cinema & Pizza Night. Thanks to Nicky Oldridge.
And a few more dates before those new diaries start to fill up – more details nearer the time. On Friday March 28th, you’ll be able to discover more about Littlehempston’s past with local historian, Jenny Galton-Fenzi, through “never before shown” images and recordings. And on Friday April 11th, enjoy “Travellers’ Tales” – an entertainment of poetry and prose, presented by the voices of Visible Ink (including our resident poet, Chris Waters), with some musical detours and delectations of cheese and wine.
As well as providing great opportunities for people to get together, these events and activities also raise the funds vital to keep the church open for future generations, so use it or lose it! If you have an idea for an event or activity that you’d like to see happen in the coming year or can offer a few hours now and then to help, get in touch with the Littlehempston Community Space Team. The more the merrier!
