HILTON FEAST WEEK October Update
We were so fortunate with a lovely hot summer with very little rain in the school holidays which made Hilton Feast week this year a fantastic week of events and entertainment for all ages to enjoy.
We try each year to improve on the previous year by trying new events and the feedback this year has been wonderful, so it is great to know it was a success. We fundraise all year to be able to put on a whole week of entertainment free of charge for everyone to enjoy, so your support at the fund raising events is vital. Feast week itself usually costs about £25,000 to organise the week, but in fact this year cost a bit more, and we started with less profit made on the events this year as the fund raising events were less well attended than usual.
We had a very successful AGM this year held in the pub which I’m sure helped with attendance! We have 2 members stepping down mainly due to family and work commitments this year and have had 2 definite new members and one more considering to join the committee who attended the AGM.
If you would like to help out as a FEAST WEEK HELPER, please contact myself or any of the committee to offer help with setting up events, or during Feast week itself, for an event or an evening. We will be re-contacting last year’s helpers again to ask if you are happy to continue and what you feel you maybe happy to do.
So we are hoping to start this year’s event’s off with a quiz and curry night on Saturday 18 th October 2014, at 7pm for 7.30 pm start in the Village Hall. Please see posters nearer the date to buy your tickets at a bargain £10 each for the quiz and curry.
We will be supporting the Hilton Parish Council with the fireworks display on 1 st November 2014 in the Wilderness , off the Green from 6 pm onwards, with the display at 7 pm, by providing hot food and drinks, more information to follow.
A massive thank you to the people without whom Feast Week 2014 wouldn't have happened, as we rely on so many people to help!
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. We as a village are so lucky to have such a great events for everyone to enjoy.
