CRAFT & PRODUCE SHOW
Stallholders are booking for the Craft & Produce Fayre in the Community Centre on Sunday 15th July from noon to 5pm. The craft fayre is being held in association with the annual Hook Village Show, which is being project led by the Hook Lions. We are already well over half full in the community centre, and the Hartletts Park outside area is looking good too, but if you know of any villagers that would like craft stalls in the Community Centre please put them in touch with the village halls team on 01256 764000 or email email@example.com.
With more help and more volunteers the Hook Village Show promises to be bigger and better this year but we will leave it to Hook Lions to tell you all their exciting news!
MORE HVH EVENTS
The Craft & Produce Fayre, part of the Hook Village Show, is a fundraiser for the Hook Village Halls charity and below is news about some more exciting events to help us fundraise.
Tables are also being booked well in advance for our Music and Paella Evening on Saturday 22nd September. The tickets are just £20 per person and includes food and a live band from Guildford called The Famous Five. The Famous Five band is very popular in the area, so the evening should be great fun. There will be a cash bar.
If Hook ladies fancy a bit of pampering and sharing a glass of bubbly with their friends, then come along to our Pamper Evening on Friday 22nd June from 7 to 10pm. Tickets are just £5 per person and include a glass of bubbly. Again if you know of any local people that would like a stall please ask them to get in touch with the village halls staff.
Another popular event where tickets are selling well in advance is the Laughterhouse Comedy Night, on Saturday 20th October, which is being organised by Jan Jacks who runs the Basingstoke Laughterhouse Comedy Club. At the last comedy evening The Elizabeth Hall was filled with laughter last time and now the comedians have gauged Hook as an audience, this year’s should be even better. The cost is just £14.50 per ticket plus there’s a cash bar.
Children’s Halloween Party is on Friday 26th October from 2.30pm to 4.30pm in the Elizabeth Hall – more details nearer the day. Then on Saturday 9th February 2019 plans are afoot for a Valentine themed Ceilidh. So with Jonathan and Sharon Glen hosting the festivities it promises to be a lively gathering!
On Sunday 9th September the Village Halls are joining forces with the Hook Allotment Association and Hook In Bloom to bring the village the Hook Flower & Produce Show and the Hook In Bloom presentation. Again another very popular village event. Look at the Hook in Bloom article to see how you too can get involved.
