As a finale to our wonderful Tour de France weekend, here’s a poster from Marie Curie to thank us for the all the donations dropped into the collecting tins around the village.
You should also know that on top of the amount in the collecting tins, the Saturday events and Sunday Concert allowed the TVA and Choir to donate a further £500 to Marie Curie, bringing our
Village donations to a whopping £663.34
Thanks to all who contributed to make this a fantastic event!
GOT THE TEA-TOWEL?
NOW GET THE VILLAGE SHOPPING BAG!
These magnificent, well-made 100% cotton shopping bags were a big seller at Thurstonland Gala, and they are still on sale at £6.50. If you would like to be the envy of fellow shoppers, contact Elaine on 664544. If you missed out on the tea-towels, there are still a few left.
What a weekend for the Village
Knitters knitted; bikes went yellow; Wheels were painted red, white blue, yellow; Pictures were painted; Photos taken; Jam and plants potted; Exhibits exhibited, Sausages and burgers bunned; Rats splatted and treasure hunted; Singers sung!
