The harvest supper was a success with quizmaster Vince once again showing why his quizzes are the best. Our thanks goes to Vince, Christine, Malcolm, Sue, Colin and Valerie for their organisation and service for the Harvest supper as well as the super quizmaster Vince wowing us with a colour picture round and several other hard general knowledge themed rounds. Who knew who was Time Magazine featured lady of the year in 1952 amongst other items.
The sunny lovely weather helped bring in a lots of visitors and made the 2023 open gardens event a proper success. Many thanks to all the eight gardens as well as the hordes of volunteers who manned stalls and made or served refreshments. Without any of you it would not have been such a spectacular weekend. Final total is still being counted but its heading for over £2000 in total.
And for those who saw Arthurs tractor it does move.
One of gardeners was out shopping and was approached by a lady who said "didn't you open your garden up last weekend?" On the affirmative she continued "we had such a marvellous afternoon in Nether Whitacre. Everyone was so friendly. the gardens were all beautiful and the cakes delicious!"
Well done everyone.
Over 60 people joined us at the church this afternoon for tea and cake. Choir led the singalong and everyone joined in old folk songs. It was all good fun but if you did not get your Coronation coins, you must contact the parish clerk or speak to Jill.
Thanks to all who made cakes, washed up or put up decorations for this special event.
Vince was our ever brilliant quiz master both posing and delivering the questions. With rounds on food and drink as well as a literacy round (which was a stinker!) Many thanks to all those who came and supported the quiz, our washing up team and of course Vince as we raised £208 for the chapel.
Brian's concert not only entertained a full house it also raised a lovely total of £320 for the chapel. Brian loved the evening as everyone joined in and made it a great night.
A lovely afternoon, with delicious sandwiches, scones, strawberries and cakes. Pots of tea, excellently served by two young waiters Xavier and Frank.
A well supported event with well over 50 people attending to have different varieties of homemade soup. A current total of £400 was raised from both attendees and donations.
Once again our popular quiz night was back. This years teams had to have a name based on the three letters preset by our quizmaster which led to some different names to normal. Vince tasked us with a wide range of questions in five rounds plus a picture round which became very closely fought; only one mark ended up separating the top teams. However "ability gone west" won through and were awarded prizes. Our thanks to Vince for his questions and to all who helped tidy and clean up making the evening such a success.
Our Remembrance service was lead by Pauline and had many who contributed to the service. A range of people laid poppies on the alter, the church was beautifully decorated and even the post service cakes had poppy cases.
Whitacre Congregation is a vibrant mix of young and old who enjoy meeting for Sunday worship. Do come and join us.
