Once again we were very lucky with the weather, glorious sunshine all afternoon. All the usual attractions were there including donkey rides which we have not had for a few years. This year we made a profit of well over £3,000 and we will be having a meeting very soon to decide which charities we will be donating it to. A list of donations made will be put in next month’s Chimes.
You may have noticed that we put several notices around at the Fete asking for help with next year’s Fete. Several members of the committee feel they need a break. Personally I do not feel I will be able to cover the area that I do and have done for several years now, I am sorry but old age is catching up with me. I am sure that all the present members of the committee will give as much help as is needed to anyone willing to join us. So if there is to be a Fete next year please get in touch as soon as possible as we start booking the regular features of the Fete, such as the band, Punch and Judy and so on any time now.

In order to book you should ring Rodney Edwards on 01935 891631 by Sunday evening to book in for the following Wednesday. 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. (Tony Hill – 01935 892485)
– 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.
