NEW - Two Minute Street Clean

Sally @ The Hive Hut has purchased a village-based
street cleaning board (it’s very funky!)
This includes pickers, sanitiser and bags!
We are looking for custodians who can house the
board outside their home a few weeks at a time,
keep it safe, lock away at night etc!
It will launch this weekend outside The Hive Hut,
so come and have a look!

Let’s keep our village clean
Once litter is picked you can place in your black
bin at home or one of the village public bins.
Thank you
Email Sally to volunteer to be a Board Guardian!

Posies and punnets
Bowling Alley Allotment Association (BAAA)
This Saturday from 10 am for a couple of hours,
mixed posies from the BAAA cutting bed. Larkspur,
nigella, cosmos, dahlias, sunflowers, allium and
sweet peas - fragrant, colourful and pretty -
and some posies made up of just sweet peas.  
Plus surplus veg and fruit, including the
ever-popular courgettes!
No price tags, but we ask for a minimum donation
of £1 please towards BAAA funds.
Find us at the allotments, Old Road off High Street.

If you’d like a posy of sweet peas mid-week,
please text or call Hil on 07767 364986

Wildlife Survey
Have you filled in the HEG Garden Wildlife Survey yet?
This is being done to get a picture of what the garden
spaces in our villages offer for wildlife in the year 2021.
We have had a good response so far and aiming to get 100.
So we are asking as many people as possible to fill in
this simple survey. You do not need to have a wildlife
haven to take part, as it would be good to see if there
is an increase in a few years time. One of the younger
members of the village has kindly volunteered to do this
survey as part of their Duke of Edinburgh award, so
please do take part and spread the word!

Women’s and Girls' Cricket Taster Session at
East & West Hendred Cricket Club,
Mill Lane, East Hendred, 31 July 2021

We shall be hosting our first 2 hour free taster training session from
age 11 onwards, run by Georgia and supported by Laura.
Please meet at 9:15am for a 9:30am start.
No equipment is necessary; sportswear and trainers required.
If you have cricket gear feel free to bring it with you.
It will be a mixed ability group and the coaching will be tailored

Please confirm attendance by emailing Dawn so we can ensure the
correct coach to player ratio. If you have any questions do contact Dawn.

Let us introduce Georgia…….
“Hi I’m Georgia and I’m 20 years old. I’ve been playing cricket for 9
years now at Moreton CC and have represented Oxfordshire since I was 12.
I’m still loving my cricket and am currently playing for the Oxfordshire
Women’s side as well as for my club. I qualified as a Level 2 coach over
2 years ago and have been enjoying coaching in schools, Moreton’s GU15
team and the GU13 Oxfordshire team. Cricket has taken me to some amazing
places such as, touring in Sri Lanka, a season in New Zealand where I
coached and played for 6 months and I’m hoping to go to India after the
pandemic to be an extra in a cricket based film. I hope this inspires
you all to come along and have some fun at the Ladies cricket sessions
at E&W Hendred CC and see where it may take you”.

in production but need voices for Great Expectations
by Charles Dickens. If you want to get involved whether
it be on the voice-over side or writing or directing

We would love to hear from you.

as well as a variety of tinned and chilled foods,

We bake savoury pies and make sandwiches during the
week, and at the weekend bake croissants..
A hand sanitising station is provided just outside
the door, and we will continue to restrict numbers
to 4 people in the shop at any given time to help
maintain social distancing.
Masks are no longer required by law, but we do
still encourage the wearing of them to help protect
the vulnerable.
Whilst the Pizza Van is away, we will be closing at
5pm as per other week days -
please do watch this space for any updates.

Wine Tasting Classes
We are also starting to book up our series of wine
tasting classes, now that restrictions allow us to
mingle together a bit more. These will vary widely
in topics, and from the more serious to fun wine
quizzes, possibly even guided winery visits if
there is sufficient interest. Please see the attached
form with further information and do let us know if
you are interested to receive more details.
