We closed the Village Hall events out in 2018 with the Brigadoon themed Christmas Bazaar (well done to all who dressed to impress with their tartan on display!), which was very well attended and had a wonderful atmosphere with everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves. There were some wonderful items for sale, alongside a plethora of tasty cakes, biscuits, mince pies and mulled wine.
The tombola ran out of prizes and the raffle was equally well supported. In total, we raised over £700 at the event, which goes down in the record books as our best ever. A huge thank you to all contributors, helpers and of course those who attended and spent their hard earned cash. We really thank you for your support to help keep our little hall in tip-top condition.
Thank you also, to those who supported the Combe Florey Christmas Cards this year. They sold in their hundreds, raising a total of over £200! Not bad considering this is the first time we’ve tried anything like this. We are considering making this a bi-annual event, so please let us know your thoughts on the matter.

We are in the process of trying to arrange the first Combe Florey Film Night – so please watch this space for more details. If you have any thoughts as to what type of film genre you would like to see, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org – or indeed if you would like to suggest any other events or improvements we can make.
If possible, we would also like to run an “Auction of Promises” in 2019 to raise some more funds for the village hall. If you know of anyone who would like to contribute a prize or donation, please email us with the details (email@example.com).
