SUE COCKREM held a
MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING
on Sept 27th 10-12am
in HALSTOCK VILLAGE HALL
On Friday 27th September, along with thousands of others around the country, Sue Cockrem from Halstock decided to arrange a Macmillan Coffee Morning in her local village hall. But this one was rather different! Sue’s husband Pete is a member of the Yeovil Car Club and invited members to bring along a display of classic vehicles to attract more than just the ladies to her event. And what a success it was, with a great crowd enjoying coffee, cakes and cars while raising £369 in just one morning for Macmillan Cancer Support. So, a big ‘well done’ to Sue and to the Yeovil Car Club for putting something unusual and extra special into this popular annual nationwide fundraiser.

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.
