8th Annual Plant and Cake Sale
Please accept a huge vote of thanks for the generous support you gave to the Plant Sale last Saturday. So many of you baked cakes, grew plants and donated items of bric-à-brac or bottles for the tombola stall. We can only apologise for the traffic problems on the day, the queues at the gate and at the refreshment table, but not for the chat and laughter that was heard at the event. All proceeds are to go to CAFOD’s work in Ethiopia and the current total is in excess of £3,600 which is another record for the event. Plans are already afoot for the ninth sale which will be next May. With our good wishes and grateful thanks. Henry and Nuala Rosenvinge.
Commemorating the First World War
A project to research the men whose names are inscribed on the lych gate in Emery Down is underway. Please get in touch with Sara if you wish to be involved in any way - as a researcher or if you are a relative of any of the men whose names are listed. Click the link to see the poster seeking your help. We have a companion project with Lyndhurst Parish Council. Please contact Adrian for details.
