Village News: Partney


A Harvest Ploughman’s Lunch was held in the Victory Hall last Saturday, organised by the Victory Hall Committee and friends.

Over 100 people enjoyed a delicious meal of cooked ham, home-made salads, pickles, coleslaw and jacket potatoes. They were also served with a fine selection of home made sweets, tea or coffee.

John Hudson thanked Ann Lovelock and her team of willing volunteer helpers for all of their hard work in putting on such a magnificent meal.

Some of the housebound villagers were served by a meals on wheels service.

Thank are also due to both Simon the Butcher and Sainsbury’s for their generous support.

“The whole idea of the luncheon provides a wonderful opportunity for people to meet, have a chat and talk over old times and get all the latest news,” said a spokesperson. “It’s a very essential social element that is sometimes missing in today’s busy lifestyle.

“The profit raised from the luncheon brings in much needed funds to keep the hall going for the village.”

Other events to be held in the Victory Hall include a Charity Bingo this Friday from 7pm, a Chine Supper on Saturday, November 9 at 7.30pm, a Dance & Social – with tuition – on Saturday, November 16 from 7.30pm and a Film Night featuring local events on Saturday, November 23 at 7.30pm.
