7.30pm: Thornbury Tennis Club Ladies Christmas Meal
The Royal George

Some of you may know that Rae Bezoundheit's daughter has recently taken over as co-head chef at the White Hart in Olveston and is getting some great reviews. We feel it would be good to support a new local venture so with this in mind

The cost for two courses will be £17 and for three courses
will be £22.50 - we believe that this represents particularly good value as many local restaurants are charging much more for Christmas meals. There are some paper copies of the menu in the clubhouse.

Please let Gill Harrison know in person or by email below if you are interested so that we can give them some idea of numbers - a sign-up sheet and request for deposits will be... Read more >>

11am: Cromhall 100 Club Christmas Draw
Cromhall village shop

The first draw of this year will be at 11am in Cromhall Community shop on Friday 22nd December and some lucky person will get a cheque for £50.

We still have 10 numbers from last year with no owner, even if everyone renews this time. At only £10 per number for all 14 chances to win, it's a great way to support your local church building and grounds.

I'm really hoping that all 100 numbers will be filled by then! You can put your name, address and cash or cheque through my door (Mandy Bird) at Ashleigh, Cowship Lane or leave in the village shop and I will collect from there.
