NOVEMBER was a busy and exciting month at The Hub in Huntingfield. Race Night on 12th saw the hall full to capacity with people having a great time. The Millennium Green Trust raised almost £500 for their funds. A ‘Rag Rug Making’ day was

very popular and everyone who attended enjoyed working in such a light and warm environment - this was a Coastal Leisure Learning Course. A couple of days after this we hosted a Zhineng Qigon weekend of Yoga which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who loved the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere that The Hub engenders. A Craft Fayre was a great success. It was a lovely day with everyone going away happy with bacon rolls, tea, coffee and cakes inside! We would like to take this opportunity of giving our thanks to the Co-op in Halesworth for supplying rolls, bacon, cakes and bread, and also Tesco in Saxmundham for providing all the fruit with which we made bread pudding. Pilates on Tuesday morning continues as does Yoga on Saturdays. If there is anyone out there who enjoys Table Tennis Thursday evening is the time for you - we have a competition table, so if you’re interested and would like more information please get in touch with us. We are looking forward to

a ‘Three Villages Christmas meal’, ‘Carol Singing round the Christmas tree’ followed by mulled wine and mince pies in The Hub on Monday 19th December. While we will enjoy watching ‘A Christmas Carol’ on December 9th. Village children will enjoy their very own Christmas Party with a visit from Santa during December as well. Yes, a lot happens in The

Hub. If you would like to know more please go to our website at hub, or email us on thehub@ Thank you to everyone who

has supported us since our opening in April of this year - we look forward to an even better and busier year in 2017. Meanwhile we wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

Halesworth and District University of the Third Age (U3A)

NOVEMBER 15th saw Dr Paul Kroon a research scientist based at the Institute of Food Research in Norwich give an illuminating talk about the real science behind (or more often lack of) many of the claims we previously and sometimes still see on food packaging and in advertising, ‘informing’ us boldly that certain foods and supplements are ‘good for our heath’. Again, this year the u3A Christmas Social will be held at Holton Village Hall starting at 2pm on Tuesday 20th December. There is no charge to members who are asked to provide a ‘plate of food’ drinks being provided. Those attending can expect an afternoon of musical and spoken entertainment along with time to catch up with friends old and new.

The monthly programme of

talks and socials for 2017 is now nearing completion and confirmation and will include a wide range of national and local speakers. As in the past

2 years we will again be using both The Cut and Holton Hall and look forward to further joint collaboration with the Halesworth Arts Festival in October. We are delighted to see (and

hear) that the Holton Village Hall now has a new in house sound and radio microphone system which we will surely make future use of. A final reminder now goes to

the few members who are still to pay their annual subscription. Please (is the paperwork hidden behind your clock?) contact us to either renew, or let us know you do not wish to do so. Finally, we wish all our members and friends a great Christmas and 2017. If your New Year resolution is

to find out about and maybe join u3A you will be most welcome. Just google ‘Halesworth u3A’ to find out more along with our contact details. Martin Stevens for Halesworth and District U3A

Holton & Blyford Village Hall

WE started last month with an energetic Family Halloween Disco with loads of blood soaked dancers, who thoroughly enjoyed a spooky Disco with Steve accompanied by Sooty The Holton Big Breakfast was enjoyed, especially the Holton marmalade very thoughtfully provided by Jill and John Hewlett. We have the Big Breakfast on the first Sunday of every month at 9am in the Hall – the next one is December 4th. Bill Ellis and “Friends” were

kind enough to play a great programme of classic Country and gentle music for our Pop up Pub in November. They were joined by the Colin and The

Young Ones from Wenhaston in the interval playing traditional Folk music. We are very fortunate to have a repeat performance from Bill on Sat 17th Dec – all welcome to come along and either listen or even dance. The Pop up Pub will be open for festive cheer too. Bingo is now well established

in Holton V Hall. Cash prizes, a draw and refreshments. John and now Jim are the callers, sessions every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month, (Dec15th) and then recommencing on Jan 5th and 19th. The Bingo session on Dec 15th will have a free glass of wine and mince pies for allcomers. Eyes down!

AROUND THE WI's Halesworth

FORTY-SEVEN members turned up to the meeting and AGM on November 15th, to be welcomed by President Molly Page. Secretary Rosemarie Mallett gave a summary of the year’s activities. Rosemarie confirmed forthcoming events: Christmas lunch at the Golf Club on Dec 9th; Christmas Entertainment at the Riverside Centre on Dec14th, 1.30pm for 2pm, and the outing to the Christmas Market at Bury St Edmunds on Nov 25th. Our own Christmas Party will be on Dec 13th at 7pm in St Mary’s Hall, as always we will bring a Christmas present, also a plate, bowl, mug, glass and cutlery. Treasurer Barbara Prime then

gave the Financial Report for the year, and gave out a few copies. The good news is that we are comfortably solvent, and the incomes and outgoings, both substantial, are exactly balanced. The AGM proceeded speedily,

as all Committee members were willing to continue in their

various offices; Rita Dedman rose to give an unsolicited tribute to the work done by them ‘behind the scenes,’ and this was eagerly applauded. After tea and biscuits, our evening entertainers arrived, the Melody Makers, whose members include WI members Molly Page and Pat Wood, Yvonne Bebbington and Pat Elvin. These splendid ladies blinded us with their scarlet blouses and enchanted us with their voices; they sang for us a whole range of songs from the shows we all know. Several of us were quite overcome with emotion, and we all stood to join them in a roof-raising rendering of our WI anthem, ‘Jerusalem’ — not a dry eye in the house. Pat Miller gave a vote of thanks on behalf of us all, and contributed to the entertainment with two humorous poems. The competition was judged

and the raffle drawn — and we departed at 9.10pm, looking forward to the Christmas Party on December 13th, same time and venue.

AFTER the usual business of our AGM the evening was greatly enhanced by a visit from Marie Lloyd, the Alta ego of Rachel Duffield. Dressed in a costume similar to that which Marie would have worn, Rachel entertained us with anecdotes about this well-known and much loved music hall star. Marie was the eldest of eight children and brought up in

Hoxton London. From an early age she wanted to perform and after being sacked from two jobs announced that she wanted to go on the stage. At the age of fifteen she was singing in the theatre at the back of a pub called The Eagle. She was only five feet tall, but what she lacked in inches she made up for with personality. An uplifting and fun evening, enjoyed by all.
