Recent Events

Churchyard Work Party
A big “thank you” to all those who turned out to help with clearing the churchyard on 8th October.  A lot of hard work was undertaken but the southern boundary has been cleared of unwanted undergrowth and now looks much clearer.  Coffee and doughnuts made for a good break! 

Cancer Awareness Day
Since 30 September was Cancer Awareness Day, it was decided to mark this in the village on Tuesday 27th at the Postwick Coffee Shop, so in place of charging the usual meagre sums of 50p for coffee/tea, cakes etc., donations were requested instead.  A grand total of £65 was raised – many thanks to all those who contributed, and to Nadine for organising this.

Hedging your bets

Now is a good time to check whether you have trees or hedges overhanging the roads, particularly along Oaks Lane. Please arrange to cut back growth if it’s a potential obstruction for cars and lorries.

Village Christmas Card

It’s that time again! This year, Julie Woods has  commissioned, through Rev Pat Atkinson’s Vidiyal Trust, for Pat’s children in India to paint a design instead of having the card printed. They will receive the money we would normally pay for printing.  It’s a win-win!  It will cost the same, so sponsorship is needed as before. The cost is £50 so if you would like to sponsor part or all (!), please contact me…Julie Woods.  (See paper version) . Thank you.

Scouts Group Treasurer required

1st Blofield and Brundall Sea Scout Group is looking for a volunteer to take on this important, worthwhile role. No scouting knowledge or experience as treasurer required – our long-standing Treasurer will be retiring in March 2017 and it’s hoped to have a transition period with the incoming Treasurer beginning in the New Year 2017.

If you would like to find out more, please contact Rupert Crisp, Treasurer, 01603 713768 or Jan Jones, Chairman, 07941030504

EACH Quiz & Chilli

Saturday 17 September

The quiz this time (won by Dexy’s Midnight Runners ?) was a special event to raise money for East Anglian Children’s Hospices.  As well as the quiz itself, there was a mini bingo session, a large raffle, and a delicious chilli con carne or vegetable lasagne alternative prepared by Ann and Peter Herring. £338 was raised, plus more donated to the sealed collection box for “seconds” of the food!  It was a great evening and very successful, especially considering only 8 teams took part.  Just imagine what might have been raised with a full house…

Friends of Postwick Church

are looking for extra people to join the group. They meet very informally in the village hall, mainly to organise fund-raising projects – not too onerous. If anyone would like to join,  contact either Ann on 702438 or Su on 700342.

On the subject of the church,  it’s hoped everyone has seen the lovely new all-weather path which will hopefully bring an end to struggling in wet weather to the church door, especially for wheelchairs, buggies etc.  A warm welcome to anyone who would care to join the group on Sunday mornings!   Coffee and a chat after the service.
