News from Shalstone

Happy News- Seth and Amanda Helstrip Have a new baby daughter Rebecca, born on the 4th October. If she looks like her sister Emily she will be a little beauty. Many congratulations to them.

Reading Room Decoration- A huge thank you first of all to Elspeth for organising, buying the paint and generally prodding people to get on with painting the Reading Room. An amazing number of people have helped. Elspeth has done a tremendous amount of painting herself, there are too many people involved to name them all, but one person does stand out for special thanks - Ron Price. The loo from now on will be known as Ron's Loo! I'm sure you all know the little ditty about the three old ladies locked in ......... Well, Ron has spent longer than them locked in the loo. He has panelled the walls and painted them painted the floor. It looks amazing!

Harvest Supper, 5th October- 56 people came to Harvest Supper. What a great night. Big thank you to all the cooks and the people who donated things for the auction.

Andrew with his new assistant George raised a huge amount of money - £1,191.17. Everybody who came was very generous.

Of course thanks to the people who cleared up and cleaned the Reading Room the next day.

Harvest Festival 7th October- An appeal for donations for Food Bank was very successful and the Brackley Food Bank was very grateful for the enormous amount of tins and dry goods. Thank You.
