Book Swap Launched

A new kind of “Club” is being trialled in Denton at the Village Hall on Friday nights. The intention is to encourage readers to exchange books on an informal basis. Further details are available in the Features Section.

It's a Mug's Game

Anyone with any pretensions to be a racing tipster came down to earth with a bump at the Village Hall on Saturday night. After four “races” most of the teams, sorry “Enclosures”, were in serious deficit. Congratulations to the Striped enclosure/table who finished the evening in profit, but everybody else showed a distinct loss on their initial investment of £8,000.

In spite of this setback this year’s Theme Dinner, “A Night at the Races”, was an outstanding success. Everybody present, more than 60 people, had a wonderful time and the four-course meal was delicious.

Lots of competitions generated lots of winners including:

The real winners were of course those who contributed to such an amazing event (in no particular order):

All those who attended can only say “Thank You” for a such an enjoyable evening.

Five candidates have been nominated to contest the county council election in the local Clavering Division on Thursday June 4th, the same day as the election for the European Parliament. Further details can be found on the County Council page.

Successful Walk

The Bank Holiday Charity Walk in memory of Anthony Hill was much enjoyed by everybody who took part. Around 80 people of all ages (and a large number of dogs) gathered at Glebe Farm for coffee and biscuits before setting out. Five miles further on at Denton House an excellent spread was provided with cyder to wash it down. Suitably fortified, the walkers then travelled another three miles back to Glebe Farm for further refreshments. Thanks must go to the Skinner and Wiegman families for their hospitality and to everyone else who contributed. A very good time was had by all and over £700 raised towards funding another Cardio Memo Recorder.
