The recent Hawkesbury Open Golf Championship, held annually on the first Saturday in August, went down a treat and a good time was had by one and all.
A superb £450 was raised for PROPS with a roughly equal amount raised by the BBQ and raffle teams, topped up with a generous £100 from the HOGS committee of Gnome, Ross, Shaun and Biggus Dickus (who also kindly supplied the charcoal).
Huge thanks to Vera’s boy Simon, Mr Brightness and his bevvie of beauties on the BBQ, and ‘Miss Parish News’ Fiona on the raffle.
The money will be invested in the new PROPS Market Garden at the rear of the Beaufort – feel free to check it out – another great effort by some really kind, generous, and talented people in the village.
Talking of which, tip top auctioneer Terry Tripp will be on hand again to oversee proceedings at our Annual Harvest Home Auction, this year on Saturday 3rd September, donations of produce not quite ready in time for the Hawkesbury Village Show will be gratefully received. Hammer start time 8pm.
At the Beaufort on Tuesday 13th September (at 8pm) is the Launch Night for the “Wulfstan Village Walk 2017” – a great chance to get fit and raise some money for your favourite local good cause – come along for details, all welcome.
Sunday September 18th we’re proud to be a ‘pit stop’ once again on this year’s Bristol 100 Bike Ride on behalf of the Stroke Association.
Finally, at the end of the month we hope to be hosting the Hogweeds’ annual Kilcott Experience
