HALSTOCK AND DISTRICT GARDENING CLUB
NOVELTY SHOW – AUGUST 29TH at 2.30.pm
Having been obliged to cancel the Show this year, we are holding a novelty event on the same day, to try to keep the spirit of the Show alive.
We intend having three tables, one for each class, on the car park at the Village Hall. Exhibitors will be asked place their exhibits on the appropriate table with a name label left upside down. The tables will be in place at 1.30pm Judging will take place at 2.30pm. The results will be announced at 3pm, followed by the weigh-in of the potato growing competition.
Table 1. Fruit and vegetables. An exhibit which you are proud to have grown.
Table 2. Flowers and Pot plants. An exhibit which you consider to be your best in 2020.
Table 3. Something you have grown that made you smile – A wonky cucumber, a naughty
carrot, a knobbly potato, whatever.
We also hope to have a “Bring and Buy” stall for Plants and Vegetables, with an honesty box.
The tables will be well spaced and all Covid 19 regulations will be observed
Treat others the way you want to be treated-Jesus.
CORONA VIRUS COMMUNITY ASSISTANCE
Need a helping hand?
In light of the Corona virus outbreak it is important that we look out for each other.
Many people in our villages are already doing this.
However, none of us know how things will develop in the coming weeks.
We don’t want anyone to unnecessarily risk their or others health, and we don’t want people to be at home in need, worrying or lonely.
Alongside many others we are trying to make sure anyone who needs support and practical help gets it in the coming months, whether that’s getting shopping or a regular chat on the phone.
If you find that you need something or just need a chat, just pick up the phone or drop us an email and let us know
Ask for Jenna 01935 891 858
Together we will help each other through.
Rev Daniel and Rev Tim are available as normal, although may not be able to visit in person in line with Government guidelines.
We are looking into the logistics of setting up a home delivery service for those people self-isolating.
If you are self-isolating or know of someone who is and need this facility would you please call Tony Woodroffe on 01935 891312 or email him at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and phone number.
We will keep you advised of our progress in setting up this service. If you would be able to volunteer to help with packing or delivering the groceries, please let Tony know.
Because the shop is very busy at this time, please do not call the shop to register for this service.
On 3rd February, 5 members of the committee met to start organising this year’s Fete. Some of the attractions, like the Punch & Judy, need to be booked well in advance so these were booked after last year’s show. There has been a very limited response to the request for more help and there was a suggestion that we run a much smaller event this year or even have no show at all. I do not think we should have a smaller show as the regulars who come would be very disappointed, and I am sure they would make their feelings known, and if we cancel it this year I don’t think it would ever take place again. So, do please give some serious thought about offering to help. It doesn’t have to be a huge commitment, as they say every little helps, if you wish to join the committee you would be very welcome but if not there are lots of jobs that can be done before the event or on the day.

– PLEA FOR STORAGE
It’s too early to be doing much towards next year’s Fete but I can say that the Punch & Judy, model aircraft and the ice cream man have already been booked. I had a phone call a few days ago asking if it was too early for me to receive donations for the Bric-a-Brac stall, I never like to turn items down so I said I would take them. So my idea of being able to put the car in the garage if the weather is bad has gone out of the window, does anybody have a place where I could store items over the winter?

– PLEA FOR POSTAGE STAMPS
Corscombe collect used postage stamps and I have been asked if we could also collect them. The used stamps are sold in bulk to Stamp dealers. The rules are that they are sold by weight regardless of original value or country of origin. The dealers will accept up to a quarter inch / 5-6mm surround of paper, so for best value cut the stamps off the envelopes leaving that much margin of paper. So do not soak off (lost value) & leaving more is not productive as someone here or at the Hospice will need to trim the surplus or risk the dealers noticing & rejecting that entire batch of stamps. There is a receptacle in the Community Room for them.
