Hexhamshire village notes

WHERE has the summer gone?

With just a month until the Hexhamshire Leek Club’s annual show I hope the wild weather we’ve been having hasn’t damaged the leeks and flowers that will adorn the tables of the parish hall on Saturday, September 20.

Don’t forget to pick up a schedule and support the show.

There are lots of classes to enter, including photography, cookery and art, as well as flowers, vegetables and children’s classes too.

It’s not quite the Great British Bake Off, but it is the Shire’s equivalent and men can bake too.

Shame Paul Hollywood won’t be making an appearance.

AS I mentioned last week, Will Nicholls is due to appear at the parish hall on Friday, September 5, with a talk on red squirrels.

This is a must for wildlife lovers and anyone interested in photography.

I must apologise to the parish hall committee which is hosting this event as I said it was a Leek Club event in last week’s notes.

I think that first week nerves must have got the better of me.

Tickets are available from Austin Illiffe on (01434) 673325.

A REMINDER to anyone wishing to enter the Dukesfield Smelters and Carriers project’s Name our Beer competition.

The closing date is tomorrow, so if you’re quick, you can enter via Facebook or by email at dukesfield@outlook.com

HEXHAMSHIRE Women’s Institute will meet on the first Wednesday of the month at Whitley Chapel. On Wednesday, September 3, the speaker will be John Clark who will talk about Featherstone Castle. New members are always welcome.

THERE will be a Shire walk on Friday, September 5. Please meet outside the parish hall at 9.30am.
