Honingham Fun Play Area
Thanks to a BDC Grant and generous support from our Parish Council, Honingham’s disused Bowling Green is now back in good order, and is available to all who would like to use it for casual, friendly competition. All equipment provided – just bring some flat soled shoes!
It is available for use at any time, but we are holding a “Roll-up” session every Thursday evening, 6.30 pm until dusk. You can try your hand at bowls, or play pool or darts in the clubroom. Youngsters are welcome – we also have crazy golf, croquet, target bowls and table-football, and the adjoining playing field to keep them amused. Coffee, tea and soft drinks available.
This is a free Village amenity (but donations are welcome and will be used to buy further equipment). The first couple of weeks have been promising, with 20 to 30 people of all ages turning up to have a fun evening. Why not give it a try? Having a get-together with family and friends? You could arrange to use the area and equipment for a novel afternoon or evening party – come and have a chat one Thursday to investigate.
Diary Note!!! On Sunday 25th June we will be holding an open day, with all the activities, plus competitions and a BBQ. Look forward to seeing you there…..
Watch us on our facebook page.
The Library Van will be visiting us again on Wednesday 17th May, usual times which are 0940’ish Fellowes Road and 10am ‘ish at The Pump.
A year ago today (May 1st) the phone box was officially opened by Radio Norfolk’s Treasure Quest.
The anniversary has just coincided with the fitting of new ‘book shelves’ at the lower level. The book swap seems to be well used and from our window we often see pub visitors crossing the road to investigate the box.
A big thank you to Trevor Smith for making and fitting the new shelves at NO COST to the village. Thank you Trevor.
Any other improvements/additions to the phone box please contact Paul or Sally Blyth
Despite the rather dodgy weather, the inaugural Thursday Roll-up evening was a great success. More than 30 people turned up to try their hands at bowls, Pool, Darts, Table football, Chess and Crazy golf. Thanks to many donations of drinks and nibbles, a wonderful social evening took place.
What will happen when we have a lovely warm evening? We are very encouraged. If you are interested, why not pop down next Thursday 630 till dusk and have a try. Bring the kids, as there is lots for them to do.
All you need is a pair of flat soled shoes to avoid damage to the green. Look forward to seeing you………………
Library Van will be calling again next Wednesday, 19th April….Fellowes Road 0940’ish and The Pump 10’ish 😊
The green has now been scarified and starting to look super.
However, lots of jobs still to do, so if you can spare a couple of hours this Saturday morning, 10 am onwards, we’ll be glad to see you.
The Bowling Green is starting to look good. The next event in our calendar is assembling a work party to help with scarifying the green and tackling lots of DIY jobs. If you can help, come along at 10 am onwards on 8th April and bring your favourite tools.
It has been decided that there will be no form of “Membership” so that all will feel welcome to use the facilities free of charge – bowls, crazy golf, pool, darts to name a few!
We are going to have a regular “Roll-up” evening on Thursday evenings from 6.30 pm onwards starting on 27th April. All equipment provided – just bring some flat soled shoes to prevent damaging the grass. BYOB of course!
The green will be available for anyone to play, anytime, 24/7. Come along to see what is available in this, your village amenity
This year’s big event will take place on Sunday 25th June – more publicity to follow but get the date in your diaries.
