Saturday, 29th January at 7p.m. - Burns Night

A super meal with tatties and neeps, traditional music, PLUS an enchanting tale from Rabbie Burns and, courtesy of Andy Mc Donald an entertaining after-dinner speech, will form the background to our popular Burns Night celebrations.  This is indeed a special event and you should put the date in your diaries and, most importantly, reserve your tickets by calling Tricia now on 680676!  Tickets cost £15.00 each and will include a wee dram.

Past Events

Senior Citizens Christmas Lunch – Monday, 13th December

The Christmas Lunch for the Senior Citizens from the village followed the usual successful format of previous years.  We had 30 guests to lunch and in addition to the delicious 3 course meal with wine that was provided we also had some enjoyable entertainment.

We are grateful to the children from Tysoe School who played Carols on a variety of musical instruments to provide some light entertainment to the delight of our guests.

I would like to thank Sue Robins for the attractive table decorations, together with Gwyn & George Adams, who just turned up and helped out in their usual selfless way.  I’d also like to thank Judy Badger for her overseeing the whole event and my other colleagues on the Village Hall Committee, who cooked, waited upon and generally worked tirelessly to make the day a success.

Cocktails & Canapés Evening – Friday, 17th December

This evening was a new venture for the Village Hall and, based on the outstanding success of this event, one that we will repeat next year.  The hall was cleverly decorated with a cocktail theme by Una Hill and her helpers and the cocktails mixed and served with a certain ‘panache’ by Marcus Robertson and his girlfriend, Katy.  We had a great range of canapés, generously prepared by various committee members, which were circulated and consumed with great relish. Alan Thompson of Tysoe won the much coveted ‘Best Bow Tie’ prize: all in all, a very pleasant evening.
