Reviews – 2017 – 2019

St. Nicholas Christmas Fayre
The annual Christmas Fayre was held this year on November 23rd in Glatton Village Hall. We all felt very festive encouraged by the mulled wine, cakes, and Christmas songs to get us in the Christmas spirit. We enjoyed a wide range of festive stalls and games including some new stalls this year.
The support for the event was amazing and we managed to raise over £950 which will support the heating project at St.Nicholas. Thank you to everyone who donated both items for the fayre and their time and thank you too to everyone who came along.
We all had a very jolly time and we hope you enjoyed yourselves too.
Have a very Happy Christmas.

St Nicholas New Year’s Lunch – 20th January 2019
John Pigott began the lunch by welcoming everybody and saying grace.  Wow, what a delicious meal was served to those who attended.
Roast pork, donated by Sue Williams, was cooked to perfection with apple sauce; roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, mixed veg, peas, stuffing and gravy accompanied the meat.  Helen and Glenn set up and manned the bar.

Desserts to die for followed the meal.  Ice cream or cream could be added to our choices and many of us heaped our bowls with a combination of the treats on offer.  The meal finished with tea or coffee.  Then the raffle was drawn and won by lucky people.  Lee Juniper had donated cheese and biscuits which were auctioned off.

Rosie Darby organised us to cook, serve, set up and clear up.  The event raised over £1200.  (We will use that money to repair the church window that was smashed when intruders gained entry just before Christmas.)
Many thanks to all the people who supported the lunch.  We were glad to see you.

Thank you to Pam and Dick Tuplin who grew the plants and to all who helped on the day.

Quiz Night – 11th March 2017
A very successful Quiz Night was held on Saturday 11th March in the Village Hall sponsored by the St Nicholas congregation. The evening was hugely well supported by the Village community who attended in great numbers and everyone enjoyed the range of General Knowledge questions that were posed by our Quiz Master Peter Ayres from All Saints in Sawtry. The noise generated by the 12 teams was evidence of the challenge, variety and fun of the questions posed and only by careful application of the ‘Joker’ did the team ‘Anonymous 8’ emerge as the winners.
Our enormous thanks goes to those who generously provided and donated a range of home cooked delicious shepherds pie and fruit crumble for all to enjoy as well as a variety of raffle prizes – this really was fun filled, value for money great evening for all!
The Village event raised the amazing sum of £1400 towards sustaining our Village Church for all to enjoy, but as important, provided a truly warm gathering of the Village community with many friendships renewed – a true celebration of Village life and so many thanks to one and all!
