This year Valentine's Day falls on the second Tuesday of the month. It seems all the members of our Parish Council are so keen to celebrate this critical anniversary with their beloveds that they have cancelled the February meeting of the PC due on that day.
They should surely be congratulated on getting their priorities right.
Last night saw the formal opening of the Village Hall's latest extension.
Everyone associated with its creation, the planners, the builders, the decorators and the funders plus of course the members of the Hall's Management Committee were invited along to celebrate the event with a glass of bubbly and suitable nibbles.
The Chairman of the Committee, Terry Hanner, thanked everybody who had contributed to its construction notably, on the financial side, South Norfolk Council and Adnams Brewery. As usual in Denton, a lot of voluntary labour had gone into the project which would greatly enhance facilities at the Hall.
Denton's thespians will shortly be making good use of the building with the annual DVC production due next month.
Regular blood donation sessions in Harleston have ceased.
For many years blood donors from Denton have gone to sessions held at various venues in Harleston. These have included the Leisure Centre and most recently the Apollo Club. (One of the attractions of the latter was always lying on ones back and working out the details of the lighting and balloon release systems suspended above you.)
This has now ceased and from now on donors will have travel further afield to make their contributions. The nearest venues are Hempnall Village Hall and the Belsey Bridge Conference Centre in Ditchingham.
