VILLAGE LITTER PICK
Volunteers needed. Angela is planning a litter pick round the village in September. A Sunday afternoon may be preferable with lighter traffic and fewer work commitments. Bags, sticks, etc can be provided. Hopefully a get-togehter at the Guinea afterwards.

FOLK NIGHT – 1st WEDNESDAY each month. Next date 7thAugust.
Each month we enjoy an excellent attendance. Every player has the chance to play two or three numbers and the evening usually opens and finishes with some rousing songs.
Now we look forward to welcoming you all to the next Folk Night. Doors open at Moggerhanger Village Hall as usual at 7 pm and music starts about 8 pm. You have the chance to come early, get yourself a drink and chat to friends. So please come along—all are welcome to sing, play, listen—or all three. Entrance is free and there will be a raffle.
As always we’re ready to get the show on the road along with our regular team of volunteers who help set up the room, run the raffle and serve behind the bar. It’s all systems go for another good evening.
Pictures from recent Folk Nights can be found on the Events pages of the village hall website or in the archive:
