Family Beetle Drive, June 2018
The Village Hall committee, all volunteers ourselves, rely on support from the rest of the village and appreciate all the help we get to keep things going at the hall. From the Glade Tavern volunteers to all the people hiring the hall for village groups, everyone contributes to maintaining our building and facilities, which in return provides everyone with a place for the social activities that are so important to our community.
I wanted to highlight two recent examples of events organised by people not on the committee which have benefitted the hall financially, while providing great, fun social occasions for people of all ages.
Alison and Mark Arnell and their team of young helpers raised £310 from the Big Breakfast, which was divided between hall funds and Home-Start Monmouthshire. (We have received a letter of thanks from Home-Start which stresses how valuable donations are to enable them to continue to support vulnerable families in the county.)
On 29th June, Rachel Widdicks and Mary Pardington organised the Family Beetle Drive, with food provided by Brendan Pardington. This raised £155 for hall funds, another valuable contribution.
But mostly, a full room with every generation joining in the fun – that’s what the Village Hall is all about.

The Glade Tavern will be open on Friday 6th April when the food will be provided by the Busy Bodies Playgroup committee who will be preparing delicious Mexican Chilli with rice & nacho’s (meat and veggie options). £7.00 per meal, with all profits going to the playgroup.
The bar, as usual, will be run in aid of the Village Hall. Doors open at 7pm.
Join friends and neighbours for our great monthly social night, and some lovely grub.
UPDATE: The Tavern team raised £205 for Trellech Primary School Parents, Teachers & Friends Association at this Charity Night
February’s Glade Tavern, on Friday 2nd February, will be in aid of Trellech Primary School Parents, Teachers and Friends Association. While most months the Tavern’s profits go to village hall funds, and these have enabled us to plan substantial improvements to hall facilities, we also want the benefit to go to other groups in the community. The PTFA does a great job of supporting our local school and its children and we think they are a well deserving cause. Continue reading
