Sunday Funday

we have 2 events in Honingham this Sunday (4th)…12 noon until 5pm for bowls, and 2pm to 5pm for the Hall.

Honingham Bowls have a go day, at the old Bowling Club, nothing formal just roll up and have a go! Also target bowls to win a small prize, and crazy golf or croquet for the children. Do have a go at “bowl in a box”…..prize is seeing Craig Matless eat his Next Sunday lunch in the pub – wearing a dress πŸ˜‚ This just has to be won… will be obligatory Craig!

From 2pm the Village Hall is holding Honingham History Day…..a wonderful archive of stories, events and photo’s, see which families first lived in your house, read about life in the Village School (closed for a week to get the black currant harvest in, or a measles epidemic), the murder at Honingham Hall, the Honingham Hoard, the Americans stationed here during the war, and lots more. Teas, soft drinks and cakes will be available, plus a raffle in aid of the Village Hall. Any offers of help, raffle prizes or cakes gratefully received on the day or contact Linda on 01603 880089.

Coffee Morning

Tuesday 9th August it’s coffee morning time in the Village Hall β˜•οΈπŸͺ

Come for a chat and a cuppa, biscuits and raffle too πŸ˜‰

10am onwards

Wood working Skills needed

Anyone in the village good at carpentry, willing to give us a couple of hours work? We have a very long oak table in the village hall that is no longer useful as a table, however, the top is made up of 3 long planks. We would like these to be used as shelves that we could stand village information and history on – the table was in the original village hall so it has some history to it and it would be a sin to throw it away. Any offers pretty please? Thank you!

usual mob, Susan 881536, Sally 880286, Julie 881133 or Linda 880089

Information Required

Does anyone in the village remember what we did to celebrate HM Queen’s Golden Jubilee? We have photo’s and memories from her 25th, and William & Kathrine’s wedding…..but nothing re the 2002 50th. If anyone has any memories or photo’s could you please let us know? Susan 881536, Sally 880286, Julie 881133 or Linda 880089. Thank you.

We will be meeting again this Friday (15th) at 10am in Village Hall re planning for Honingham History Day. Please come along and share memories and pictures.

Honingham History Day

Honingham History!

There is a lot of interesting stuff to know about our village, we agreed at the Tuesday Coffee Morning this week. And several of us have that stuff in the attic!

We agreed that there are probably many people living in the village now, who would like to know a bit more about it. So we propose, with the agreement of the Village Hall Management Committee, to hold a Honingham History Day from 2pm to 7pm Sunday 4th Sept. when everyone will be able to see our history, through documents, photos and souvenirs. There will also be teas and cakes, of course. This event will take some preparation! If you would like to be part of that, and of course, if you have things of interest to share, please come and join us in the village hall from 10 – 11am on Tuesday 14th June and Tuesday 12th July, when we will be sorting and planning. How exciting is that!!!

For those of you unable to come along to our coffee mornings, if you would like more information or if you have items that you think we would like to include (photos, letters, artefacts etc.) then please contact one of the organisers and we will be pleased to chat.
