HILTON FEAST WEEK.
Hilton Feast week committee have had to take the difficult decision to cancel the St Patrick’s night on 14 th March due to lack of ticket sales. This is the second fundraising event we have had to cancel so we would welcome any feedback or ideas you may have for different fundraising events that you would attend, to encourage our previous good attendance. We have incurred costs this time unfortunately as we had hired a great Ceilidh Band who expect full payment due to late cancellation.
So to appeal to families and maybe the wider community we are planning a SUMMER FETE on Saturday 6 th June 2- 6 PM. More details to follow and there will be posters and leaflets in the village so please support our future events. Please contact me if you would like to have a stall on the day.
We need to fundraise to be able keep the whole Feast week event FREE OF CHARGE in the Summer, as it costs approximately £25,000 to stage. Otherwise the present Feast week format will need to change, due to financial restraints, which after 30 years of success would be a shame. So our next few events are as follows;
4 th April 2015 - Easter Egg Hunt starts at 11 AM – 2 PM. Find the Eggs around the village and complete your map for a small prize. Refreshments and hotdogs available to warm up or cool down!
16 th May 2015 - Murder Mystery night with Fish n Chip supper - 7.30pm.
27 th June 2015 – Casino night with cocktails – Black tie event -7.30pm.
26 th July 2015 – Feast week starts with Produce show and parade of floats day.
Watch the website and Spectrum for dates for your diary, and you can buy tickets for the evening events from Gill Gill or from Sunil in the paper shop too.
Lastly, I’d like to say thank-you to all of the Feast Week committee who have worked hard, to pull all this together for our community.
