Clock & Watch Clinic – Tuesday, 4th April

Derek Bond was welcomed and kept busy at the beginning of the month when he visited The Comrades Hall.

Intended to be on the first Friday of each month, next Friday is Good Friday and there will be no Post Office services so Derek is coming in on Tuesday morning instead at 10am.

Derek Bond

Bring along your watches that have been lying in drawers for years or that old clock that stopped working… how long ago?  Derek also offers replacement batteries or watch straps.
Customers will need to pay for any replacement parts used but Derek is only requesting a small donation for his services to go to the Post Office Users Group fund 🙂

Moonage Daydream (15)

A Great BIG Thank You

From last night’s party organisers, John & Lynne Staff:

Our Village Party at the hall on Saturday was a stunning success. Thanks to our local band McIntyre with Wendy Shields and Brian Wing guesting. It would have been almost impossible without the generous donation from the Broadwindsor Fun Group and the support of all those who helped on the day. A big thank you also goes to Kate, Chloe and Louise for preparing the food and all those who helped on the bar. A special thanks goes to Margaret and Jane from the Broadwindsor Community Shop for their advice and support. 

Not to forget the a huge thank you to all those who turned up!  

A great evening, lets hope we’ll be able to do it again soon.
