Down Your Way: Charmouth
10:00am Saturday 2nd November 2013 in Bridport
IF you have rushed out Thursday morning to get your paper, there may still be time to take the kids to the Halloween Fun session at the library.
Spooky stories and Halloween crafts, coupled with a free drink and snack should keep your under 10s entertained from 10 till noon. Contact Mandy Harvey on 01297 560167 for details or just turn up.
The now regular bonfire on the beach takes place this Saturday from 6pm, along with the usual barbecue and fireworks.
There will also be a guy competition – to take part, take your home-made guy to the beach before 5.30pm.
A little earlier on Saturday, The Royal British Legion Women’s Section are holding a coffee morning at the village hall, raising money for the Poppy Appeal. Tea/coffee is free, but entry to the hall is £1.
Every year, the parish council donates some of the funds it collects from car parking to local organisations, with the money having to be used for a specific purpose by the groups.
If you are involved in any local organisation and would appreciate a one-off donation, send your request in writing, giving as much detail of how you would use the funds as possible to The Elms, marked ‘for the attention of the clerk’. Next Thursday, the Pavey Group – in the shape of Neil Mattingly and Liz Scott – are presenting an illustrated talk entitled ‘Charmouth – scenes from its past’.
This promises to be a fascinating evening, highlighting key events in the history of Charmouth. Entry is just £2 and the event is due to start at 7pm at St Andrews Community Hall.
Charmouth School PTFA is looking for donations of wearable clothes or re-useable textiles, in association with Bags2School, who pay £5 for every 10kg collected.
If you can help, bags of suitable textiles need to be delivered to the school entrance before 9am on Thursday, November 7 – please contact Karen Southcott on 01297 489191 for more details.
The Charmouth Fayre has been running successfully for many years, but there have been a few mutterings recently about changing the format.
The fayre committee is keen to find out the views of local people – do you like it just as it is, or would you like it to change and, if so, in what way?
Please send your ideas and suggestions by email to Peter Noel at email@example.com or drop a note into The Court before the end of November.
