Tickenham Village Field committee will be presenting another excellent and exciting evening of on-screen Horse Racing. All takings will be going towards the on-going development of the Village Field.
A VILLAGE EVENT FOR ALL
The village school would love to welcome new faces to our monthly market which is held in our village hall , school parents kindly run this voluntary event , We would love to see past pupils, parents and local villagers who like to support the village in fund raising. All money that is raised benefits every child in Tickenham School making such a difference to special day trips and treats for the pupils.
We have a wide selection of local fresh goods and gifts on offer. Refreshments and food available in the morning making it a treat to eat out on a Saturday morning whilst helping the local school.
Please support this in the village and come along we would love to see you all.
Progress on finishing the leveling and drainage ground works continues to frustrate us. As you will be aware from the many and frequent ‘flooding’ news items, the extremely wet weather persists. With the recent works to the field together with the heavy rainfall, the state of the soil is preventing the return of the earth moving tractors (for fear of getting lodged) necessary to complete the works.
We can only apologise and hope that a period of dry weather is not too far away to enable the works to be completed and the grass sowing done.
The Playground proposals are now together for assessment. The budgets have been finalized and applications for Lottery and Jean Burrows funding are complete and will be issued this month.

With grateful thanks to the Jean Burrows Fund, the Parish Council has been able to provide a defibrillator for the village, located outside the Village Hall. It will be commissioned shortly and will be the latest Automated External Defibrillator built specifically for use by lay people who may not have had any training. Having said that, you might well be in panic if you had to use it, so training would be a huge advantage.
TRAINING SESSIONS, open to everyone, have been arranged in the Village Hall as follows:
Saturday 18th January at 2.30 p.m.
Friday 31st January at 7.30 p.m.
Saturday 15th February at 10.30 a.m.
Numbers for each session are limited so please book a place if you would like to attend: Ring Vena on 07740 085 015 or email email@example.com
Our Burns Night celebration on Saturday 25th January 2014 is sold out and there is already a waiting list. If you would like to join the list in case people drop out, please ring Doug on 852397.
Two fantastic fund raising evenings have recently been held. A huge thank you is due to the team who gave up their weekends to shop, chop, prepare, cook and serve two bountiful suppers.
