Here’s the latest update from Shirley Viney:

The members of the Village Hall Management Committee are aiming to increase fund-raising activities during the next couple of years to urgently replace the unusual windows at the front of the building. Planning approval may be required and this will be a costly project: the estimated cost at today’s prices is £30,000. 

 Once we have raised a significant amount, we are planning to apply for external funding. In the last ten years, we have managed to raise our own funds (with help from Burwash Parish Council and our loyal supporters) for all the major works which have been carried out, but now we feel it is time for some outside help with such a major project. Thankfully the current windows were painted and minor repairs carried out last summer, and this should give us a few years’ grace! One of our imminent events will be Burwash Open Gardens, our major fundraiser which we hold every other June: the next will be on Sunday 23rd June 2019. 

 Our first event, Mary’s Soup Lunch, was supported by very many of you and raised £455.08 for Hall funds. The atmosphere in the Hall was fantastic and it was very special to have so many people supporting Mary and her team of ladies, and all of their hard work: thank you! 

Richard and Lynda Maude-Roxby donated £300.49, this year’s proceeds of sales of their apples. Monday Painters donated the £23.86 they raised on refreshments at their recent Art Exhibition. Again, we are very grateful for all their support. 

The next Whist Evenings will be held in the Hall on Thursdays 6th December and 3rd January, starting promptly at 7pm. 

Thilo Kork has been very busy promoting and selling Burwash Calendars 2019 to be sold in aid of the Village Hall and St Bartholomew’s Church. We are very grateful to staff in our local shops for their support in selling them for us: at £10 each. We have listened to your request for larger spaces for personal entries and for a choice of styles. We hope you will enjoy the new photos of our beautiful village.

As in recent years, the Village Hall Management Committee will be raffling a Christmas Hamper at the Village Festive Shopping Evening on 5th December. Tickets are £1 each and the hamper will, as usual, be choc-a-bloc of tasty items. Last year’s winner commented that he was delighted to win but also amazed by the quantity and quality of itemsin our special hamper!!

I am very grateful (as are the rest of the Management Committee) to Julia and Peter Angove who tidied the front of the Hall on Love Burwash Day. It is vital to keep our beautiful Hall looking well cared for. 

Our very best wishes to you all for A Very Happy Christmas and for the New Year, 2019.
