Join us on Saturday 12th December for our online Christmas Quiz over Zoom! The quiz will start at 7pm and end at 9pm.
Helen King (who usually runs the hall’s Quiz and Curry Nights) will be setting the question and will be master of ceremonies. Questions will be provided online.
Teams from the same household can join in together sharing one device (laptop/tablet/phone), but to keep things simple, if anyone in your house is logging in on a separate device, please book in as a separate team.
There is no charge to join in, but please book to receive a link to the session by filling in the form below.
The Committee are organising Christmas Card deliveriesaround The Narth, Pen y Fan and Maryland again this year, but there will be a few changes. We appreciate donations in return for this service – details below.
This year we will have a Post Box outside the hall for you to drop your cards into. This will be open from 1st December up to Thursday 10th December.
Please write the name of the houseon the envelope and it would help us tremendously if you could also write the house number from the Village Map – you can download the map here.
Please make sure you are using the right map (not the map in the history book as this is out of date and the numbering is different)!
Only cards for the village please and remember, our volunteers don’t know where everyone lives so please use the house name and number!
Cards will be quarantined for 3 days then sorted and delivered before Christmas.
It would help us if you could make your donation by bank transfer, with the reference ‘Xmas’. If you don’t have the hall’s bank details Contact Us to request them.
If you cannot do this, please put your donation in an envelope and post it SEPARATELY into the green post box attached to the wall of the building, to the left of the front door. (Not in with the cards.) If you do this, please contact the hall treasurer, Marilyn, or use the Contact Us form to let us know there’s something to collect.
If you qualify for Gift Aid, please fill in the form here so we can claim an additional 25% on your donation.
THANK YOU and have the best Christmas possible in these difficult times.
Evans of Monmouth are now delivering their food boxes to the hall. Their range includes fruit, vegetables, dairy produce, meat, fish and many store cupboard staples (pasta, tinned goods, flour, condiments, drinks and more).
Deliveries are fortnightly on Thursdays. Orders must be placed by midday the day before delivery (i.e. by 12.30pm Wednesday for delivery on Thursday).
There is a minimum order value of £10 and an administration charge of £3 on orders less than £30.
The next delivery will be Thursday 26th November – orders must be in by noon on Wednesday 25th.
The system for ordering and collection is as follows:
(Please remember we are in lockdown and this is for your daily exercise walk around the village in your household group.)
Social distancing means Halloween Trick or Treating is out this year, but we don’t want the children to miss out entirely. We are asking people to Put Out a Pumpkin for Halloween, so family groups can take their children on a pumpkin hunt around the village. Parents may decide to give them a treat for each one they spot.
If you plan to display your pumpkin, can you let the Village Hall committee know please as we are putting together a map to let parents know where to go. Use our Contact Us form to tell us your house name, or post on the village Facebook page.
It doesn’t have to be a real pumpkin. If you don’t have one. A picture in your window, or somewhere else that can be seen easily, would do instead.
Order your 2021 Calendars featuring the winning photographs from The Narth Photography Competition. Calendars are A4 size and cost £5 each. Padded envelopes for posting the calendars can also be ordered at 40p each.
The Annual General Meeting on 13th October was held online via Zoom, and included a summary report of the Village Hall’s activities and current financial position, elections to the committee and the results of the Photo Competition which are reported in a separate post.
Gwen Reid and Stephen Dix retired from the Committee and we are pleased to announce that Matthew Sadler was elected as a replacement. We are now one member short so we are still recruiting.
As this year’s AGM was held online it was not possible to distribute the Annual Report or to hear from all the village groups, so these reports are available to download below:
It’s been a very difficult year for everyone, and the Village Hall committee want to express their appreciation of the way the village community has pulled together, and pass on our grateful thanks to all the volunteers who have kept things going and supported the village through these strange times.
