It's All Greek

The date of the Greek Night at the Hall has been moved. It will now be held on Saturday 15th March.

The Angels Have It!

It was a close run thing at the Village Hall this evening but the winners of the annual Village Quiz were "Evie's Angels" aka the "Hanner Horde".

With nine teams taking part, they won the much prized "Brain of Denton" trophy with "Taken for Granted" second and "The Magnificent Seven" third. The even more coveted "Plastic Fish" award, for last place, was won by the "Darrow Green Demons".

Quizmistress Denise Grant, ably assisted by her glamorous assistant, Momma King, produced a fascinating range of questions which challenged everybody. The break for food, Denton Chilli á la mode etc., was much enjoyed by all, as indeed was the whole evening.

Thanks must go to everybody who contributed to yet another great village event.

Greek Ping Pong? Plus!

Two more events in March have been announced.

On the first of the month a Greek Night will be held at the Village Hall in aid of Multiple Sclerosis and six days later the annual Table Tennis Tournament will be held at the same venue.

Further details in Coming Events.

And another in May! The Art Group will be holding an Exhibition of their work in the Village Hall on Saturday May 24th.

Rector Appointed

The Earsham Benefice, which includes Denton, has announced that Revd. Christopher Hutton has accepted the post of Rector. He currently serves as the Curate of St Mary's Southgate at Crawley in Sussex.

The date of his installation will be announced in due course.

Precept Frozen

There was good news for Denton's Council Tax-payers at Monday's meeting of the Parish Council.

Council members considered their draft budget for the coming financial year starting in April. After some discussion of future financial requirements it was agreed to keep the precept, the amount DPC asks South Norfolk Council to collect from residents on behalf of the PC, at the same figure as last year - £3,000.

The exact impact on the amount paid by each property for use by the council is not yet known but any increase or decrease is likely to be very small.

Insect Alert

The date of this year's Beetle Drive has changed!

It will now be held, a week later than originally announced, on Saturday March 22nd.

A Very Special Friday

All last-fridays-in-the-month are special in Denton but this January's will be very special.

As usual an evening meal will be provided at the Village at a modest charge but it is the Burns Night season so, courtesy of the Henderson family, haggis will be served.

In order for Sarah Henderson to know how many people to cater for and thus for Allan Henderson to know just how many haggi to shoot, those attending are asked to book their places in advance.
