A Reminder for our Events Programme
Hopefully you will have received the village halls programme on your doormat showing what’s coming in the months ahead. If you haven’t (or you’ve lost it), they are available at the Elizabeth Hall and Hook Community Centre. Both halls also have a wealth of general information as to what’s going on in Hook, or visit www.hookvillagehalls.org.uk or join our Facebook page.
The Vibrant Hub of the Community
Hook Village Halls has regular events, classes and meetings to suit every age and taste, making them the hub of our community. If you want to start your own regular group or activity, visit the website or phone 01256 764000 to ask about our introductory packages for new weekly hirers to help get you going. In addition to hall hire, the HVH charity also hosts its own fantastic activities to ensure everyone has a chance to make use of the halls.
Hook Flower & Produce Show 2019
Hook Village Halls is host to the village’s 5th Flower & Produce Show on 8th September. For more details on entry categories please look at the special article on the show in this edition of Focus. Entry to the show is free for both entrants and visitors, so make a date and come along to this popular village event between 2pm and 5pm. There will be a tea room, tombola, raffle and books for sale in addition to all the wonderful exhibits you will be able to see. The Hook In Bloom winners’ presentation will be at 4pm.
Another community venture that is proving to be successful. The new pop-up community library is doing really well on the 3rd Thursday of the month between 2 and 4pm as well as its ‘top up’ service in Tesco. Please keep those fiction paperbacks and children’s books coming into the Elizabeth Hall for Hook Books.
With over 1,500 books to choose from at the Elizabeth Hall monthly event, it is also a popular social gathering with scrumptious homemade cakes and cream teas to be enjoyed. So make sure the monthly Hook Books dates are in your diary and come and join us.
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Join us for our annual Macmillan Coffee Morning between 10am and Noon on Friday 27th September at the Community Centre and help raise funds for Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. Let’s see if we can beat the £440 we handed over last year to the charity that supports people living with cancer. With 1 in 2 of us now expected to have a cancer diagnosis at some time during our life, it really is a very good charity to support.
Quizzing in Hook
Don’t forget it’s the HVH Quiz Night on Saturday 17th November – 7pm to 10pm – at The Elizabeth Hall, so do start sorting out your team members soon. Tickets are just £12 for a team of 6 and there’s a cash prize for the winning team. Bring your own refreshments plus there’s a raffle too.
We have had to make a slight change to our arrangements for our Valentine’s Ceilidh on Saturday 15th February. The top notch country dance band ‘Between the Acts’ will now be bringing the evening alive with their foot tapping live music. So make a note of the date now because we know the evening, for just £25 to include a two course meal, will be a sell-out.
Other Dates on the Horizon
Half Term Fun on Wednesday 19th February, March Quiz Night plus a welcome return for a Laughterhouse comedy evening during the autumn of 2020.
