LoveArt Competition prizes
Peter Herring is still looking for help with the prizes for the Art competition and auction he is organising as a fundraiser for the new EACH Hospice in Framlingham Pigot. Three prizes are planned, the first a weekend break at a coastal hotel, the second, a voucher for Art Materials and third a hamper. We have a sponsor for the hamper but are looking for a company or individual(s) to sponsor the first and second prizes in the region of £250 and £100. If you can help, please contact me (email@example.com or 07876508747)

Bookings for Village Hall / Jane is stepping down. We need someone to help.
After more than 2 years of sterling work Jane Hancy has decided to give up the role of Bookings Secretary for the Village Hall. The Social Committee is therefore seeking someone to take on this responsibility.
• There will be a handover time during which Jane has kindly offered to pass on all the information required.
• If interested please contact Matthew Riches or any other member of the Committee. Jane is happy to provide more information if contacted through Village Hall Bookings.
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 Su using web site contact page.
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.
Green Group Plant Swap
A thank you for all who supported the ninth plant swap in May. The morning went very well and everyone went away with something!
N.B. If anyone would like to join the Green Group, they would be very welcome. The group meets once a month informally to talk about fundraising for talks, events etc.
Please contact Su via Web site contact page.
