Hextable Village Community Picnic 2019

The third annual village picnic took place on the afternoon of 23 June which was a pleasantly dry day, a welcome change from the rainy one last year. A large number of residents turned out to the Heritage Gardens to enjoy lunch out of doors and watch the events in the arena. The programme kicked off at 1 p.m with enthusiastic songs by the Big Sing choir, followed by the children of Simply Performers with their splendid dance routines. There was a good cross section of dogs in the Dog Show  earning their owners prizes. Entertaining also were the music group the Saxophonists. Club K and the Fitness with Friends groups showed residents the benefits of various types of Dance and there were further Dance Performances by children and adults throughout the afternoon. The Sounds Familiar Choir based at the Howard Venue provided a delightful range of songs and the Aerial Gymnastics team entertained spectacularly on their Aerial apparatus. Further songs accompanied by guitar were introduced by a duo called Live 2 The Max and the afternoon concluded with an Open Mic. session. Some photos are displayed below, more can be seen on Hextable Village Life. Thanks to everyone for coming and to all the helpers. Hextable Hub hope this will continue to be a popular annual event for the village.
Hextable Postal Addresses

Following our contact with the Royal Mail through our MP Michael Fallon last Summer we have now obtained their agreement to including the village in our postal addresses. We anticipate a general letter being issued to each of our residents asking if they disagree with this. If no more than 20% object it will be included and we will be officially recognized at last.
Spring Litter Pick 2019

Andy Lawrence organised another litter picking on Saturday 11 May together with a group of willing helpers including the scouts and the Rapid Response Team. Many bags were filled up, collecting from around the village mostly dumped in the hedgerows and by the side of roads. It was a showery day with Goss Hill being fimished in a downpour. The next one will be in the Autumn.

CHRISTMAS FAIR AND CAROLS ON THE GREEN

This event took place on Saturday 8 December which was a day that started off extremely windy so it was a struggle for the team assembling the gazebos.
Due to persistent rain the day before the vehicles providing refreshment all had to be positioned off the Green.

At the start of the programme at noon the weather although cloudy was fine so residents could enjoy standing or sitting around in the open listening to the first item of 
Christmas songs provided by a singer with Keyboard backing.

Just before the second item on the programme the heavens opened so the Dance programme had to be performed quickly then everyone rushed to the protection of the Marquees and Gazebos.

Santa Claus and his colourfully dressed elves provided gifts for the children in the Grotto throughout the major part of the day.

The choirs and instumentallists entertained both on the Green protected under one of the marquees, then afterwards in St Peters Church and were well received. There was a vast display of craft stalls in the church to which visitors went during the afternoon.

The Carols on the Green at 5.30 p.m were the best attended ever with our local vicar Johnny Douglas leading the singing of half a dozen carols interspersed with seasonal jokes and giving out the raffle prizes.

The Pretty Little Tea Company, Pizza and Chippy vans plus Tonibell and Buddies Brewery provided sufficient food and drink during the event with mulled wine and mince pies 
also on offer at the Emersons Marquee in the afternoon as well as the church in the evening.

Thanks is due to Hextable Hub for all the planning for the event supported by Hextable Parish Council, St Peters Chuch and Emersons Care Home and to everyone who took part and helped in any way including the sponsors.

Annual Village Picnic

The Village Picnic on Saturday 12 May took place on a day when light rain was never far away with dark clouds passing overhead. Residents braved the weather with colourful umbrellas not wanting a drop of rain to put a halt to the fun. The scheduled events apart from one exception all occurred. The children were excellent with their dance and fitness routines. The choir gave a rousing rendition of popular songs and several individual singers contributed to the enjoyment. The dog show was well supported with different breeds of dogs taking part and there were a good number of entries in the cake competition. Artwork and face painting were available and tee shirt printing.
Many gazebos were provided by the contributing participants and the local fire brigade and police came to show the action capacity of their vehicles. Climbing aboard was allowed under supervision of the officers.
