Scarecrow Weekend

14th & 15th June

It will soon be time for the scarecrows to come out of their hiding places in sheds and garages throughout Oxhill.  You all go to such a lot of trouble to make this weekend a success, letís hope that you have wonderful ideas again this year.  Especially as we may appear on television!

There will be the usual pig roast on the Saturday evening, but this year there will also be an all-day pig roast on Sunday.

We will also be having a table-top sale in the Old Chapel, so if you have a few odd items hanging around that you would like to sell, why not contact Lilian on 680468?  Tables will be provided at £5 per day.  Please book early.

The plant stall will operate as usual. If you have can offer any plants Janet Gardner will be pleased to have them, preferably on Friday 13th.  Superstitious?  Not Janet!

If you have small items that you could donate for the tombola it would be greatly appreciated.  Please get them to Lilian.

Gaynor Fila will once again be organising teas and will be contacting her band of cake-makers very soon now.  If you are not on her list of willing volunteers but would like to help, please contact her on 680473.

So far we have four gardens open over the weekend.  If you would be willing to add yours to the list it would be wonderful.  Please let Lilian know.

There will be a meeting in the village hall in early June to help anyone who would like to make a scarecrow but is not quite sure how to go about it.  Look out for more details of this in the June News.  The straw will be available at the village hall for all to use, as usual, although my son does not know this yet.  Rest assured, he will!

We will be needing menís old white shirts and black trousers, for the Morris Men.  If you can provide any please let me know.

And finally (as they say) any other help that we can get for the weekend will be great.

Lilian, 680468
