Christian Aid Quiz

Back again after the problems of Covid, this year's Quiz Night supporting Christian Aid was a great success.

The eventual winners were "The Afterthoughts" (rather like this article?) comprising - Chris, Helen, Ken, Kim, Phil, Roger, and Rosemary. As usual, an excellent meal was provided. Over £400 was raised for the Charity.

DVC Up And Running Again

Denton Variety Club is back in business, at last.

Ever since the start of the COVID Emergency, the DVC, like many other village groups, has found its activities severely restricted. They managed, just in time, to put on "Jack and the Beanstalk" in February 2020, but since then their only dramatic contribution has been a short revue produced as part of the Queen's Jubilee celebrations.

However, the good news is that preparations are under way for a new pantomime next February. The name has yet to be decided but the first read-through has been booked for November 30th at DVH.

It is hoped that all the usual suspects will be taking part, but new blood is always welcome.

How about you?

Another Tractor Run

The recent tractor run through the village, starting from the Playing Field, attracted a lot of interest, not least from those that enjoyed a ride.
18 tractors took part and £200 was raised for the Eastern Air Ambulance.

Another Denton Author

In the past, several Denton residents have achieved fame for their literary talents (Mandolins did you say?), and we are delighted to announce the arrival of another.

Sandra Gordon, of Darrow Green Road, has just published a children's book - "Teddy – Bishopstone Station’s Bear", based on the true story of a missing bear and his boy. It’s all about a teddy bear who has been locked away in a parcel office at a railway station for a number of years and who dreams of being reunited with his owner. All profits from the book are to be donated to Cancer Research and the Friends of Bishopstone Station.

Now the publication of the book has been recognised with coverage, and favourable reviews, in local newspapers. First in the Beccles and Bungay Journal and then, on Friday 4th November, in the EDP.

Copies will be available from Amazon or from Sandra herself. She will be delighted to sign them if requested.
