Painting of the Village Hall – Volunteers Needed
Saturday 2nd August and Sunday 3rd August 2014 all day both days!
Volunteers needed to help with this vital project, we need to look after and maintain the village hall.
We need painters, tea and cake makers and folk to man or woman the BBQ to feed all our volunteers over the two days. If you can’t help then come and watch the action and buy a cuppa and a cake.
If you can help please contact any of the Village Hall Committee Members to volunteer.
The Thruxton race experience on Saturday 28th June is something not to be missed. Ever thought that Lewis Hamilton or Jenson Button were going slow and you could do better, take part in the Thrixton race experience and you will change your mind. There are 5 options from taking a Porsche around the Thruxton circuit to experiencing the new skid pan.
These are all at a great offer price for this on day, these are vastly reduced from their normal prices.
All proceeds go to Kimpton Village.
Plans for 2013 to allow the churchyard to lie fallow was not successful so a committee has been formed and we have two projects in the pipeline.
1. A working party of anyone who is fit and able will meet on the 31st May to clear the grave yard and put in a rabbit proof fence. This will be done with the help of Michael Pope and Clive Lucas. Eventually we hope to get rid of the rabbits and plant wild flowers and poppies .The area around the graves will be regularly mown.
2. The church path will be dealt with and proper scalping laid so that it will not get so muddy in the future. We propose to plant lavender and other flowers along the path
Maintenance we hope will be carried out by Michael Pope once it is manageable again.
We have a contribution from the Parish council and from the Village Hall Trust from the Kimpton Race Day and the fete to start everything rolling.
It will take some time and it is expensive and we do hope to put in toilet facilities in the church eventually. On September 12th we would like to have a harvest supper with entertainment for the whole village.
