SANTA CLAUS: Santa Claus or Father Christmas will be visiting the village on Tuesday 27th November, accompanied by North Notts Lions with their usual sleigh. A door to door collection will be taking place during this visit by the Lions team who support various local charities throughout the year. Please give them your support.

All volunteers, the Lions team will be visiting the villages of North Notts, up to a few nights before Christmas. A tremendous effort and well worth supporting. Well done Lions!

CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING: The tree lighting ceremony will take place on Saturday 1st December at 5:30pm on the village green at the junction of Station Road and Town Street.

DOG WALK: PLEASE NOTE The community dog walk scheduled Sunday 2nd December has unfortunately had to be cancelled, partly due to lack of support and commitment, plus the extra pressures that arrives with the approach of the festive season. Many dog owners along with other villagers having various other appointments to fulfil in the run up to Christmas and beyond.

GARDENING CLUB:  Anyone wishing to go to the Christmas table decoration / swag / wreath workshop on the 4th December, led by Sally Barker, will need to pay £5.00 per person at November’s meeting to book their place as this is a ticket only event. Please also book at this November’s meeting for the Christmas meal which is on Saturday 8th December and will be £15.00 per person. Can all stubs and raffle monies be given to treasurer by 4th December at the latest please, as the tickets will have to be folded in preparation for the draw at the meal on 8th December.

The first meeting in the new year will be Tuesday 8th January 2019 (as the first Tuesday of the month is the 1st January, and although members are keen, none of them wish a meeting on New Year’s Day!) This meeting will be the annual quiz and will be held again in Barnby Moor village hall. Future meetings will revert to the first Tuesday of the month, unless otherwise stated.

A few vacancies still exist within the group and further information about the club and its activities available from Elaine Hauser on 07969 254 920. Members old and new always welcome!

BARNBY MOOR FUNDRAISER: The coffee morning held at Barnby Moor village hall on behalf of the recent tsunami disaster was a success, but a somewhat limited success due to a lack of support from local residents and friends.
