Prickwillow Village Newsletter

JULY 2019


Friday July 12th at Hiam S&S Club
Doors open 7.30pm, eyes down at 8.00pm

A Prize Bingo night is being held at Hiam Sports & Social Club to raise funds for the Village Defibrillator.

There will also be a raffle – donations for prizes would be much appreciated which can be left at the club beforehand but should be marked as for the defibrillator bingo or brought on the evening.

Please come and support this very worthwhile cause.


The Village Council are planning a Party in the Park and anticipate that it will be in September.

At the event we’ll be holding a miniature garden-in-a-tray competition. Use found objects like shells, pebbles; plant pieces like twigs, flower heads, moss and anything else you fancy! Let your imagination and creativity run free. There will be prizes to be won for Junior and Adult entries.

More details to follow in the next newsletter.


JULY Services: Sundays, 10.30am. All welcome
