Tilshead Knit Natters, 5th July 2018

Knitting

It was lovely to have such a good turn out for the first Tilshead Knit Knatters last week.

There was a nice mix of familiar and not so familiar faces and an assortment of different and inspiring projects – beading, patchworking, cross-stitching and, of course, knitting.  

We had a bit of a natter and there were also some really quiet moments where you could sense the intense concentration.

Do you have a craft project that you can’t get started on? Perhaps you’re stuck and need a little bit of help? Would you like to meet other people living in the Village?

Come and join some like-minded people at Tilshead Knit Natters on the first Thursday of every month and bring your craft project with you.

Initially the meetings will be at TARA on Back Lane between 19:30 and 21:30 hours. If you would like to join in please contact us here beforehand or email knitnatters@tilsheadvillage.com so we can have a rough idea of numbers in advance.

Our next meeting is Thursday, 5th July 2018.  

See you there!

A group of people have suggested running a book club within the village.

For anyone interested in joining a book club would they please email me so that we have a rough idea of numbers, and their reading interests at 
trudiejames@btinternet.com. This would help in choosing the first book.

Please let me know by the end of July.

It is hoped to have the first book club in September.

Update: Tilshead Village Fete, 2nd June 2018

Written by   in 

Ok everyone, latest Fete update is that we have got a whole variety of new stalls and games to keep you all entertained on Saturday 2nd June!

Beer and Pimms will be on sale as well as the traditional tea and coffee.

However the most immediate request is to keep those empty screw-top wine bottles coming please. We also need a few full bottles (as prizes) to be donated please. Donations can be given to either Hilda, myself or to Russ & Debbie Lee.

There will be the usual raffle draw so we would be delighted to receive any prize donations. 

For the Mary Berrys amongst you, the donation of a cake or 2 for the cake and tea stall would be fantastic.  Hilda is the point of contact for that.  More updates to follow!

Tilshead Village Fete, 2nd June 2018

Written by   in 

The Friends of Tilshead Church are organising the 2018 Tilshead Village Fete on Saturday 2nd June at Tylney House.

We are looking for stall holders and activity volunteers to make the event a big success. In addition to the traditional Bottle Stall, Bric-a-brac, Plants, Treasure Island, Skittle Alley etc, we are keen to add a few new attractions to appeal to the older children and teenagers: perhaps a Football or Hockey Penalty Competition or a Fly Casting Competition?

So if you have any cunning ideas and would like to run a stall or activity, or would be happy to get involved more generally, then please contact either Simon Bedford on 07969 569491 or Hilda Renshaw on 01980 621632 as soon as possible so we can make the plans for a great afternoon. We are also happy to make room for anyone who regularly runs a private stall (jewellery, cards etc) who would be happy to pay a pitch fee.

We look forward to hearing from you!
