Slaley village notes
Published at 07:36, Wednesday, 19 March 2014
WEDNESDAY morning in Slaley was very busy indeed, with a friendly traffic jam that lasted most of the morning.
One of the causes was a very successful pop-up coffee morning hosted by Christine Milligan and friends in the Rose and Crown.
They served some gorgeous cakes in the restaurant of the pub, and raised £180 for the Rose and Crown’s coffers.
Then two local hunts, the Braes of Derwent and the Haydon Hunt, met up outside as well, so the place was heaving!
FRIDAY saw the Women’s World Day of Prayer celebrated at Slaley Methodist church.
The inspiring service, and especially the address by Brenda Mearns, was well received with a good attendance. The focus was on Egypt and £145 was raised.
FRIDAY evening brought the Whitley Chapel Young Farmers to Slaley Commemoration Hall, and a loud, fun-filled cabaret echoing back to the young farmers’ toy boxes was performed.
The group will now go on to perform in Retford, and the evening raised around £500, plus a contribution to their expenses.
Anyone else who wishes to help with the expenses of the trip should contact Jim Bailey on (01434) 673352.
YET another reminder to fill in the broadband survey sent out with the March newsletter.
Even if you are satisfied with your service, others in the area definitely need better, and a good response will enable us to argue for improvements.
Fill in the paper form from the newsletter or complete it online in a few minutes by going to www.slaley.org.uk/2014/bb-survey/
If you’ve done that already, please ask your friends and neighbours to do the same.
THE next film show is on Friday, March 21, when you can see The Descendants, with George Clooney trying to sort out his family’s problems.
THE volunteer for the medicine collection next week is Lynn Allsop.
