Postponement of AGM

The AGM of the Drinkstone War Memorial Institute, scheduled to take place on Monday 8th June, has been postponed. A revised date will be arranged once the hall is open to the public again. The existing trustees and officers will remain in office until the AGM can be held.

Drinkstone Sale Trail 2020 – Cancelled

Cancellation of the Sale Trail planned for 2nd May 2020 due to the Corona Virus
It is with great regret that the Village Hall Committee have made the necessary decision, sooner rather than later, to cancel the Sale Trail. This is the first time we have had to cancel since we started the event in 2002 but, as it seems highly likely that the situation will dramatically worsen before it gets better, we feel that for the sake of everyone’s protection and health, we have no option but to cancel. If we find, perhaps by mid-summer, that we are in a better place, it may be possible that we could try to re-schedule to hold it in the autumn.

Mulled wine and coffee morning – Saturday 14th December

The Village Hall committee and Fund raising team would like to invite all residents of Drinkstone to join them for a glass of mulled wine and a mince pie (and some savoury treats) plus tea and coffee from 10.45 on Saturday morning. The Christmas Hamper Draw will take place at 12.30 (tickets will be available on the day) together with raffles for a spectacular Christmas cake and a stunning floral arrangement. 

There will also be a display of work from the Art Group, and a gift stall to raise money for All Saints Church. 

Look forward to seeing you all there for our annual thank you to the village for all the support given to us during the year.

The stage has arrived!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this project.
