NEW ART GROUP IN HALSTOCK
Vivien and Paul are setting up a new art group.

with, but increasing as the numbers grow. We will
be meeting at Halstock Community Room (at the rear
of Halstock Village Shop). All abilities are welcome.

Dear HVC Friends
Thank you all so much for your loyal support for Halstock Village
Cinema this year. You’ve come together, enjoyed happy social
conversations as friends should and, while you were about it,
hopefully enjoyed some good times watching the films. You’ve
also contributed more than £2,000 to help maintain and improve
our Village Hall – a wonderful achievement, so we thank you for that too.
We wish you a very happy and peaceful Christmas wherever you are.
It has been our pleasure to provide you with the excuse to join us each
month and we look forward welcoming you again in 2019.
A Happy New Year to one and all, from all of us at
HALSTOCK VILLAGE CINEMA

Pot Luck Lunch
In the article in last month’s Chimes there was an error regarding the booking procedure for which I must apologize. There is no change to the method of booking in, you should still ring Rodney Edwards on 01935 891631 by Sunday evening to book in for the following Wednesday. The confusion arose as we are now offering a vegetarian option to encourage vegetarians to join us. Tony Hill has offered to do the catering for anybody wanting a vegetarian meal and therefore we would ask that you contact him to let him know which meal you would like.
The first Pot Luck Lunch in 2019 will be on Wednesday 9thJanuary so if you wish to put your name down ring Rodney by Sunday 6thJanuary, we look forward to seeing you then.
– 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.
Pot Luck Lunches
The Pot Luck Club starts again on September 12th, if you wish to join us please book in with Rodney Edwards, 01935 891631, by Sunday 9thSeptember. There have been some changes to the cooking schedule so if you want to check who is cooking there is a list in the hall kitchen and also in the Community Room.

Halstock has a thriving little colony of Hedgehogs. Every sighting of a Hedgehog, alive or dead, is mapped on the village map. This way we are able to keep an eye on numbers.
All this though depends on villagers notifying Betty Armour, e-mail to email@example.com or 01935891998, whenever they see a hedgehog so keep those sightings coming in, and please drive carefully through the village. We aim to keep Halstock a Hedgehog friendly village .
