Saturday’s Fun Group Christmas Party Cancelled

On the anniversary of the party that didn’t take place at 10 Downing Street last year, there will be no festive party at the Comrades Hall this Saturday.  Due to the Omnicron variant now being present in the village and surrounding areas, Broadwindsor Fun Group have been left with no alternative but to cancel this Saturday’s Festive Fun event.

Full refunds are available to ticket holders from the village shop.

The Silver Lining Band will be invited back in the new year and to raise funds for next year’s jubilee event, the Festive Hamper will now be raffled off in Broadwindsor Community Stores at £1 a ticket. 🙂

Chairman, Adrian Gray thanked everyone for their efforts.

As the event is cancelled, the Comrades Arms will be open on Saturday from 6pm – free entry, all are welcome.

Last Few Days To Use Scout Post!

Many thanks to everyone in the village who has been using the Scout Post Christmas 2021 service so far which helps raise money for local scout groups.
Kevin and his team at the Broadwindsor Community Stores have been kindly hosting the yellow scout post box, and you now only have a few days left to post your cards. More HERE.

Final collections is on Saturday December 18th at 12 noon.

If you are interested to find out more about Scout Post, or to look at some of the statistics about cards being sent this year, please click HERE

If you are someone who regularly walks around the village anyway, perhaps you may be interested in volunteering to help out with some of the delivery of the Broadwindsor cards for Scout Post 2022?
Some local villages e.g. Stoke Abbott, Netherbury, Burstock didn’t have anyone to deliver cards there this year, so they were not included on the delivery schedule. Perhaps you might be able to volunteer to carry out scout post in those villages next year?
To find out more information about volunteering please get in touch with kirstyamoore@outlook.com.

Scout Post is run by Dorchester & West Dorset District Scout Council
Charity registration no: 1039833

A list of cards they are unable to deliver will be held until the 12th of January and listed on the District Website – click HERE.

Broadwindsor Fun Group’s Party Gets The Go Ahead

Dear Broadwindsor residents,

I write to confirm that the party planned for next Saturday, 18th December to raise funds for the Jubilee Fun Day, IS GOING AHEAD.

When planning the event we had given much thought to any risks regarding Covid and it is due to that consideration, we are able to still to do so. Naturally all Government rules will be followed. The numbers of tickets have been restricted to around 50% of the hall capacity so space should not be an issue. We will have hand sanitizer at the door and ask that everyone uses it please. Similarly we would ask that attendees compete a lateral flow test before arriving. Masks should be worn when moving around and whilst not strictly required whilst dancing, wearing is encouraged.

Thanks to those who are supporting the event, we certainly need something festive in the run up to Christmas!

I hope to see you there, some tickets are still available from the village shop.

Festive Regards,

Adrian
Chair BFG.

Shop Manager Kevin Wins The White Lion Cake

Kate’s last cake raffled on Broadwindsor’s Fun Day raised a similar amount for a charity close to her home and heart, the Turner Syndrome Support Society.  Read more HERE.

The morning was a successful one with good attendance and tasty, warm mince pies.  The Three Churches raised a significant amount in their raffle too 🙂

Congratulations Kevin!
