14 September 2023 - Coffee, Quiz, Website and more
Just a little reminder - as if you needed it - that 6th October will be a Coffee Morning. I've asked for my slice of delicious home-made cake to have a candle stuck in it - you'll have to guess why. No gifts thank you, unless exceeding £50 value...
We are very pleased to announce another round of the popular Village Quiz.
The format is pretty much as usual, although I'm told some people have asked for it to be easier. Can you imagine?!
Well, the "Easy-Peasy Village Quiz" will be held on Saturday 7th October at 7.30pm.
You'll have to book your places in advance - from Sue or Hilary (details below) - but to give you all a chance to get a place they won't be taking bookings until 23rd September. Contact them early, just like getting a doctor's appointment, to be sure to avoid extreme disappointment.
Maximum of 6 to a team please, or come as you are and make up a team on the night.
Light refreshments will be served but bring-your-own-bottles as ever.
As mentioned a few times, we've been working on a replacement village website to replace the obsolete software currently in use. It's nearly ready (have you heard that promise before?) and it's currently being tested.
We've tried to make it easy to use and want to make it more useful for you all. The Diary / Calendar page will be updated directly by Sutton Poyntz Society and Mission Hall Trust committee members, so there's no excuse for it to be out-of-date. You'll be able to see easily if there's something interesting coming up, and to check dates and times of events. And the Newsbites will all be stored there in case you need to look something up but can't find it in your own email clutter.
Look out for it to cast off its old skin and and emerge in its new clothes around the end of this month.
Just to thank you all for coughing up your modest subscriptions. We've a few ongoing village projects and events planned and your subs are also paying for the Newsbites and Website costs. If you missed one of the Committee ringing your doorbell it's still not too late to pay your 2023/24 fiver (per household). Pay up at any event or pass it to any committee member - list available here
