WOOFS and Wellies: The date for this fundraising walk for St Michael’s Hospice is April 27. Apologies for giving the incorrect date of June 7 in last week’s column.

FLORAL Society: Many attended, and all agreed that the meeting on February 6 was the most successful of AGMs, with a short business session taking the society forward to an interesting 2014 programme. Every member was given a specially prepared kit and was helped by Dusty, Joyce or Margaret to make a Valentine rose.

The annual fee is now £35. Meetings will continue to be held in Sherfield Village Hall from 1.30pm on the first Thursday each month. Call 01256 889040 for more information.

TOMBOLA and Tug-of-War: These two events have already been arranged for the fun day on June 7. The parish council is also looking into the possibility of the newly restored granary having an open day. This historic building should prove interesting.

YOUR news please: Please let me know of any special events such as exams passed, anniversaries coming up, engagements, weddings and births, and fundraising days.
