Plants Table


Many, many thanks to all who have supported the plant stall at The Hollies over the last couple of months, either by donating or buying plants. We have been raising
money for Alzheimer's Research and Dementia UK; so far we have raised £395 and counting!
The stall will return this weekend for a few days (30th July - 1st August or until the plants are gone) as there are now some young delphiniums ready and some gorgeous large dahlias, as well as some other plants.
Please come and have a look.

Village Hall News

As you are all aware the development of the new Village hall is underway and we all look forward to a time when it's completed and COVID restrictions allow us to use it!

As part of the development of the new village hall, where possible, the management committee would like to provide a hall that delivers an exceptional facility for the community with equipment to enhance meetings and functions.

This could be new furniture, staging for school or other performances, kitchen equipment and perhaps appropriate sports equipment for clubs to use, the intention is to provide a facility that will attract greater use and be a hub for increased community engagement.

We would also like to try to deliver all this with a hall that is as efficient and environmentally friendly as possible.

As you can imagine, hall funds are limited and the current COVID-19 pandemic has not helped as we have not been able to hire out the hall since March 2020. Our normal limited hire revenue is also supplemented significantly by other fundraising activities which again have not been able to take place.

In order that we get as close to our aims as possible we would like to hear from you if you are aware of any suitable funding sources or grants you may be aware of that we could apply to, maybe these are through organisations you have worked with now or in the past or groups or individuals you may have heard of through your social interactions.

We are of course already looking at grants and funding options through our own research but if anyone else has any suggestions these would be very greatly received.

Should you have any suggestions that you wish to discuss or questions, please contact either Mike or Matt on the details below:
