Forthcoming Events

Friday 4th March - Friday Night @ The Village Hall

We are continuing the popular Friday night theme with a simple meal and a chance to socialise with friends.  This month it will be Sausage & Mash plus a pudding, all for £7.50 per head.

Food will be available from 8.00 p.m. until 9.30 p.m.  Tickets are available from Tricia Harbour on 680676.

Friday 1st April - A Nautical Night (with Fish & Chips)

Oxhill may be as far away from the sea as you can get but don’t let that stop you joining us for a night of nautiness.  We have a talk and presentation by Belinda Marklew on `Sailing the Southern Ocean – been there & done that’, with, appropriately, a freshly cooked fish and chip supper.

Belinda took part in the BT Global Challenge Round the World Yacht Race in 2001 on board the yacht Norwich Union.  She completed the arduous Southern Ocean crossing from Sydney to Cape Town in six weeks.  Her yacht finished the leg in second place.  “Never again” is what many sailors say of the Southern Ocean!

There will be slides, video and audio from the world’s toughest yacht race.

Food will be served in sittings between 7.30 and 8.30 p.m. with the talk starting at 9.

Tickets at £10 each can be obtained by 'phoning Tricia on 680676.  There may be a few tickets available for the talk only at £5.  Please contact Tricia if you would prefer this option.

A raffle will be held during the evening in support of our First Responders Mick and Barbara Shepard.  Any donations of prizes for the raffle will be gratefully received.

Friday 15th April - A.G.M + Cheese & Wine

The A.G.M. this year will be preceded by cheese and wine at 7.30 p.m.

A couple of long-serving members of the committee will be standing down, so there will be opportunities for new blood to influence events with their new ideas!  If you would like to know more of what is involved in running the Village Hall please call Derek Harbour on 680676.
