EVENTS COMING UP
Here is the latest update on events coming up at Topcliffe & Asenby Village Hall. There’s a great selection of activities taking place and it is hoped you’ll give them your support. For more information contact Doug Allan on 01845 578525.
Village Halls Celebration – Coffee Morning – Saturday, 25 January 2020 - 10am to 12 noon
Every year there is a national celebration aimed at highlighting the importance of village halls within local communities. The 2020 event will be held from 20 to 26 January. The committee at our local village hall has agreed to participate and will be holding a coffee morning on Saturday, 25 January between 10am and 12 noon.
Come and meet Kevin Hollinrake, MP for Thirsk & Malton, along with representatives of the county council, the two district councils and our two parish councils. This is a great opportunity for elected politicians and villagers to get together over a cup of tea or coffee in a friendly environment. It’s also an opportunity for everyone to look around the village hall and to watch a slideshow of images of Topcliffe and Asenby over the years on the large screen. No charge for entry. Refreshments - tea/coffee and cake £2. Refills free of charge. Great raffle prizes.
Sunday Brunch – Sunday, 2 February - 11am until 1pm at the Village Hall
Bacon or sausage and egg butties, along with endless cups of coffee or tea, will be on the menu at the next Sunday Brunch. Newspapers will be available. Come along and meet friends and neighbours over a leisurely breakfast. No tickets required.
Rural Arts – Arts and Crafts classes – 1.30 to 3.30pm – Tuesday 4 February and Tuesday 3 March at the Village Hall
This regular class held on the first Tuesday of each month is now attracting a dozen or so local residents. It’s felt that Rural Arts may be persuaded to continue financing the classes beyond April if we can demonstrate that local people are really keen to participate. So it’s hoped that a few more residents will start to attend to boost the numbers. Classes are free and they provide an opportunity to get hands-on experience of a wide variety of crafts.
Soup & Sweet Lunches – Wednesday, 5 February - 12 noon until 1pm at the Village Hall
The regular monthly soup and sweet lunches start again in February. Come along and enjoy a soup and pudding served by local volunteers to raise money for the St Columba’s Restoration Fund. No set charge – donations welcome.
Bollywood Night – February 2020 – Watch out for details about this event.
There’ll be a touch of Bollywood at an event being planned in the village hall. We’re aiming to set a date in February and will confirm details as soon as possible. What we can say is that there’ll be a curry supper starting with onion bhajis and samosas, followed by choice of vegetarian and meat curries, and Gluton free option.
Topcliffe Race Night – Saturday, 18 April 2020 – 7pm until late at the Village Hall
One of the most popular events on the village calendar is back for a third year! Doors open at 7pm and the first race is off at 7.30pm. You can have a brilliant evening at the races, with an excellent supper and lots of excitement and fun. There’ll be a cash bar serving draught beer, tins of lager, wines and soft drinks. And there’ll be some great prizes to be won on the raffle. You can name a horse now for just £5 each (there are 64 for sale!) by contacting Doug Allan on 578526 (email@example.com). Entry tickets will go on sale early March.
Attic Auction – Saturday, 25 April 2020 at the Village Hall
The popular annual Attic Auction is returning to its normal late Spring slot and will be at the Village Hall on Saturday 25th April with all proceeds going towards St Columba’s. As usual the organisers are appealing for donations of anything saleable (but please no TV sets, computers, clothes or soft toys). Items can be taken to the Hall on the day of the sale from 8am with viewing from 12 noon and the auction starting at 2pm. More details in future emails.
