Christmas Bazaar
The Christmas Bazaar on Saturday 9 December proved a popular and successful event, raising a record sum of £1,025 for Reading Room funds. Thank you to everyone who supported us on the day, including the generous donors of Tombola and Raffle prizes, and everyone who so enthusiastically joined in the spirit of the occasion and gave their time and help, plus holly, mistletoe and delicious home-cooked Christmas produce and treats, amongst many other gratefully received items.

Fish 'n Chips and Quiz Night
Fish ‘n Chips & Quiz night, on Friday 2 February, was a ‘sell out’ event with nearly 20 people on the waiting list for tickets. Sam and the Frying Machines’ Icelandic Cod and Chips were a great hit, with many people saying: ‘Please can come again!’ All thanks to Stephanie Lucas for generously accommodating Sam’s ‘fish & chip’ trailer in the driveway of Becketts.

The Quiz itself provided lots of entertainment – including an ‘identify the flavour of Crisps round’ plus a Hat-making round which brought out the best of Chilmark’s creative talent. All congratulations to the overall winners on the night: The Outcasts, a team that just happened be the smallest of the night.

Finally, apologies to those of you we couldn’t squeeze in; we’ll aim to make sure you have plenty of advance warning for next year’s Quiz!
