Lost dog

From Tanya Simmons:

I just met a young couple who are driving round the village looking for their lost brindle, black & white Staffy dog Busta (photo attached).

The owners name is Eva, Busta will answer to her name and is wearing a red collar. I believe she went missing from their home at 37 Farleigh Rise at about 2pm this afternoon.  

If you have any information please contact Eva on 77181667766, they are understandably upset and worried.

From Nicky Minter:

10th June, 7pm – 12pm

Dress: Festival (Optional)

Adults £10, Children £5 (includes food)

Put your dancing shoes on, we are organising a fantastic event for the evening of this year’s summer fete in the marquee in the Minter’s field. Starting at 7pm there will be drinks and a relaxed gathering leading onto super mouth-watering food provided by Rob and Liz from the Longs Arms.  

We have had some very generous Auction Prize donations which you can bid for, hosted by our master Auctioneers, Mark Caroe and Chris Jones. After which get ready to strut your stuff to the intensely rich and familiar sounds of an exceptionally professional and brilliant group called ‘The PayOff Band’. They cover an array of music from 1950’s right through to 2010’s including Van Morrison, Elvis, Proclaimers to Amy Winehouse, Ed Sheeran and the Killers to name just a few.

There will be a break in between their sets for some rest and refreshment, after which our music maestro Chris Jones will spin some disks into the early hours. Side tents will be set up for those wishing to continue chatting, away from the music.  

All this is being provided for the very reasonable sum of £10 a ticket, £5 for children. As it is festival season, there is an option to dress up in Festival style gear, or simply something colourful.

We may be visiting your doors in the near future to sell tickets and hope many of you are keen to join the get-together, making it a truly memorable village day and evening – and feel free to bring friends and family. Tickets are also available from the Longs Arms Pub and the Club or please email ticket requests to:

Hope to see you there!
