Village Hall Refurb

February 20, 2020

We are still on track to finish by the end of June.

The Hall has been stripped bare, with openings cut for the new storage area and for the additional door at the back. A drain has been cut for the new Vale Room toilets and scaffolding has been erected in preparation for work on the gable ends and the new flat roofs.

Coronavirus has not yet affected progress but we cannot assume that it will not disrupt supplies or the availability of labour at some point. We’ll be keeping this under regular review and will let you know if anything changes.

Thanks from Blewbury School

February 7, 2020

Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed to the fundraising events over the past two years that has enabled the PTA to purchase new playground equipment for the school.

Special thanks to Lydia Inglis for her sponsored half marathon and for the kind donation from the Ratpack event. It is fantastic to finally have the climbing frame in place and it is fair to say that it has been a huge success with the children which makes it all worth while. We are continuing to fundraise and look for grants to support the school and further improve the outside space and support the curriculum.

Our next big event is ColourFest on SATURDAY 16th MAY. We will be running the fantastic colour 5K course as well as expanding the event this year to an amazing bar, delicious BBQ and live music bands. This will run throughout the afternoon and into the evening and will be a great event for ALL the village. Please save the date.
