Christmas Decorations

Isolation has its compensations. At least we have the internet to share seasonal greetings, decorations etc.

Re the latter, two Denton groups, the Art Group and the Gardening Club, have been using their skills to provide some great examples of visual decorations, celebrating this magical time of year.

These can be seen on their respective pages on the Village Website -
The Art Group's Collage a great team effort, and
The Gardening Clubs winning Entry in the Alburgh Church Christmas Tree Festival.

Well done both!

Braving the Cold

Congratulations must go to the two teams who braved the cold last night and ensured, despite the current difficulties, and the cold weather, that the long-standing Denton tradition of Carol Singing on the last Monday before Christmas was maintained.

Perhaps not surprisingly, numbers were a bit down on previous years, but they were given their normal welcome everywhere, and they raised over £400 for their annual charity - the Bwindi Orphanage in Uganda.
All very much part of the Spirit of Christmas!

Whither Our Post Office?

With the very sad loss of Rae Stribling, (Her Obituary has now been added to the History Section) our much valued Thursday morning Post Office at the Chapel has been suspended.

Our local SNC Councillor, Chris Brown, has circulated a letter he has received from the PO explaining the situation and stating that they hoped to be able to reinstate the service. The letter can be seen Here.

Further information will be circulated in due course.

On Target

As Denton life gradually returns to normal (fingers crossed!) it was good to see a special fund-raising darts tournament held at the Village Hall last Friday.

The competition was based on the target of achieving the highest score with three darts. The winner was David Godsmark with a score of 95.

He very generously donated his prize to the fund, which meant that £12 will go to the Big C and £12 will go to Greyhound Rescue.

Thanks must go to Karen and Paul for organising the event.
