Tickenham celebrated the Queen’s 90th Birthday with a BBQ and beacon lighting at Barn Farm, thanks to the generous hospitality of the Triggols. About 100 people came along: we enjoyed a BBQ and lit one of the official beacons. It was a huge success – the Church doing something for the community, in the community, with the community.
Don’t forget it is the first Tickenham Flower Show jumble sale. Doors open at 2pm. If you have any quality jumble, please bring it along in the morning.
All proceeds go to the Tickenham Flower Show to help fund this annual village event.
Don’t forget the Christmas Social evening on Thursday 3rd December at 7.00pm in the Village Hall. Interesting guest speakers, a raffle, Christmas Bria-a-Brac, Cash Bar and a Welcoming drink and mince pie. Enjoy a Christmas evening with friends. Patrons entry free on showing Patrons card, £1 to all other guests.
In the run up to Christmas the local Post Offices can be very crowded with long queues. Why not buy your stamps and post your parcels at Tickenham Post Office, where the parking is easy? It’s open on Mondays from 10 till 11.30 and Wednesdays from 2 till 4 pm, in the Committee Room of the Village Hall (access via the back door). On Mondays you can even have coffee and cake! Tickenham Post Office will run all through December, so please patronise it and help keep it open.
Please see the Events List for lots of interesting and exciting events promoted by Tickenham Church to raise much-needed funds – some for on-going work both to our Grade 1 listed building and some specifically for the West Window Appeal. We would be delighted to see you at any of these and can assure you of a great time.
Don’t forget it’s village market this coming Saturday (10th October). We will have our usual craft stalls along with fresh bread, ham and delicious cakes.
Bacon butties and cake will of course be served – come along and catch up with old friends for a natter.
