Summer Sports 2019

Jumble Sale

In September 2017 the Committee decided that in the early part of 2018 we would organize a fundraising event.

It was agreed an old fashioned “Jumble Sale” might be fun and hopefully be well supported by the Villagers.

The date of Saturday 24th February 2018 was chosen.

Flyers were distributed to all proprieties in the Village, with details of event, also requesting for unwanted items for the jumble: clothes, bric- brac, books, cake stall, draw etc. Many Villagers donated items, in fact when “setting up on the Friday evening” we wondered if the Hall could accommodate such a large amount of interesting items.

The Saturday morning was cold but dry, and resulted in over a hundred people attending the event, including many Village residents.

There were as we advertised” plenty of bargains and collectables” for everyone.

The Committee wish to thank the Villagers who delivered the flyers, all the people who gave items for the stalls, those people who although not on the Committee helped to “man” the stalls, also a big thank you to Alan Dyne who came to the Hall on an extremely cold Friday evening to check all the electrical goods to ensure they were safe to sell.

“The Jumble” raised £800, most of which will be put towards new equipment for the children’s play area.

The generosity of people resulted in a lot of good stuff not get sold; the Sports Club have donated this to the charity “Samaritans”.

It will be collect and lots will be sold in the Samaritans charity shop at Ipswich.

The New Secretary

I would like to introduce you to the Sports Club secretary; Elaine Felton. Elaine, husband Jack and their two children moved into the Village around a year ago. Elaine works part time and is also an excellent cook, making quite a lot of the yummy cakes which were on the cake stall at “The Jumble Sale”. Elaine’s husband, who sells firewood ,and trims hedges, takes on small landscaping projects and other garden jobs, very kindly gave up his Friday evening to help transport donations for Jumble to the Village Hall. On the Saturday, Jack looked after the children so Elaine could concentrate on the “Jumble “event, at the end of the Sale Jack helped to bring the surplus goods to our garage.
