Happy New Year from the Village Hall Committee!

And first, a message following the Village Christmas lunch…

Oxhill Christmas lunch 

What a lovely start it was to the Christmas season!  Forty four villagers were treated to a splendid feast at the annual Christmas lunch and a jolly time was had by all.  Thanks to Jill Tucker for advising us on the perils of Christmas.  The three kings need a risk assessment, there are severe health and safety issues with shepherds watching their flocks, you need goggles when dealing with angels and I cannot tell you the amount of dangers encountered with rocking a cradle.  I shall never watch a nativity play without a hard hat and a Hi-Viz jacket again!  We were also able to welcome the U3A Ukulele Group who delighted us all with renditions of folk songs and carols.  We even managed to impress them with our singing, aided by a little drop or two of wine.

Our grateful thanks go to the many people who donated to the event to ensure we had a great time, to the villagers who made decorations, cooked and helped on the day; Sue Robbins, Anne Marshall, Audrey & Jeff Reid, Hugh Rowse, Pat Crowther & Brian Hobill (who donated the excellent gammon) and the Village Hall Committee members who worked so hard on the preparations and during the event to ensure everything went smoothly.  Special praise must go to the kitchen team who, despite the fact that the cooker died on us two hours before the event started, had to rustle up a camping stove and a hot plate and kept the hot food coming throughout the event.   Well done everyone.

Our special thanks should go to Pauline Wyatt who gave the most haunting rendition of Amazing Grace accompanied by the Ukulele Group.  It was so lovely. 

Best wishes

Forthcoming Events 

Saturday 23 January – Burns Night

Not sure if we mentioned… Scotland won’t be at the European Football Championships in 2016! However, the Scots know how to get the year off to a great start! Join us for haggis, tatties, neeps and whisky in the Village Hall as we honour Robbie Burns. Gather at 7pm for the 7.30pm start.

Tickets, which cost £15 per person, need to be ordered and paid for in advance as this is always a sell-out. They are available from Jay Roberts on 680030.

Saturday 30 January – Village Big Breakfast

If you like a cooked breakfast, juices and croissants and would like to start your Saturday in the sociable company of fellow villagers, then first Village Big Breakfast is just for you.

Breakfast will be served in the Village Hall between 9am and 11am. Come and chat to friends or read your newspaper and magazines. What better way to start the weekend!

To help with catering requirements, please let Jay Roberts on 680030 know you are coming. Full breakfast will be £5 per adults or £3 per children.
