Gallery Thurloxton Village Hall

Because of Covid, we have no up-to-date pictures of events at the Hall but are looking to build up a new Gallery in the coming months. If you attend an event at the Hall and have some photographs you could share with us, we would love to see them.

Thurloxton Gardening Club Summer Show a Stunner

The Thurloxton Gardening held its annual Summer Show at the Village Hall on Sunday 5 August.  it was a glorious day. There were lots of people milling about enjoying their cream teas, cake and the fabulous display of fruit, vegetables and flowers all created and arranged by the members of the club.  The winners were:

1st Prize – The Bill Corner Cup went to Pauline Warren. Second prize, the Esther Venn Cup went to Di Gamble and the Avis and Walter Cup, or third prize was awarded to Margaret Irish.  The ‘Best in Show’ went to newcomer Charlie Pepper for his miniature garden in a tin.  Reserve Best in Show was received by Di Coram for her rose. Congratulations to you all!

Garden Party Blooming Marvellous

On Sunday, July 15th, Mark and Jenny Thorp, Clavelshay hosted an afternoon of cream teas in their beautiful garden with about 140 attendees.  The weather was kind, the scones and cakes were scrumptious and everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves. The raffle prizes were amazing – baskets filled with summer fruits, wine, cheese and biscuits.

The Hall Committee would like to thank Mark and Jenny for hosting the event and everyone else who ‘pitched in’ by baking; putting up and dismantling the gazebos; bringing and returning chairs, tables and crockery from the village hall; serving; and clearing up.

Our guests were very generous as the overall ‘takings’ were the highest ever recorded for a single event organised for Thurloxton Village Hall (in excess of £1,300).  This is a welcome and much-needed addition to our Thurloxton Village Hall Redevelopment Project fund.

Soups and Puds February 2018

An enjoyable evening amongst friends with an amazing range of delicious soups and puddings.  This  really popular event was sold out as usual.  A great big thank you to all the team and the cooks who made this event possible.

Christmas Party December 2017

Our second, and we hope annual, Christmas Party was a great success with all the children delighted with their presents.  Even Santa found time to drop in for a mince pie and a glass of Alex Brown’s delicious mulled wine.  Thanks to everyone for bringing food and for donating a range of wonderful items to our Christmas hampers raffle.  They looked spectacular and raised a lot of money for us.   Put December 1, 2018, in your diaries now for this year’s Christmas Party.

Craft Fayre November 2017

A new idea the organisation team worked very hard to pull it all together and it was really well attended. With over 15 different stall holders providing a variety of gifts, cards, wrapping paper, photography, knitted wear, woodwork, ceramics and mosaics. There was local wine as well as jams and chutneys too.  Despite the cold, the gazebo was full of people enjoying the hot soup and other refreshments.  Who would have thought there was so much talent amongst our residents?  Will there be another one this year? 

Queen’s 90th Birthday 2016

We had a really lovely day on Saturday afternoon to celebrate the Queen’s 90th Birthday.
There was a lovely atmosphere with over 100 people attending. The Hog roast was prepared and served by Philip and Ruth Waterman and everyone brought a salad and pudding to share as well as their own drink. The tables were all decked out in red white and blue and there was lots of bunting. The jazz band got everyone swinging and Wendy Myatt’s singing was lovely! There were games for the kids and a raffle. Here’s a group photo of us all together celebrating.

A fantastic fanfare of gorgeous floral arrangements was held at St Giles Church to coincide with Her Majesty’s 90th and many came from outside the area to see it.

Thanks to the Quick family for ‘lending’ us Keirles Farm for the day.
