Pot Luck Lunch
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.
