Village Cafe at Haydon Villa

Do you want to sit in traffic on Bank Holiday Sunday? Not really.
Instead, how about strolling to the village bridge and calling in at Haydon Villa to sit with friends, view the garden (maybe more than one), meet the chickens and enjoy light refreshments from The Village Café.
You are cordially invited to do just that on SUNDAY 26th AUGUST between 2 and 5pm.
All included for just £3.50 per adult, £2.00 per child.

Proceeds are to help fund Village Voices to stage more community events and activities in the village.

Film Club "THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL SOCIETY"

A historical comedy drama which follows a London based writer who exchanges letters with residents on Guernsey following the German occupation in WW2. Juliet is intrigued by the society and it’s rather odd name and makes plans to visit the island. Not everything goes to plan, of course…..
Tea, coffee, wine, beer, soft drinks and biscuits available to start your evening.

From October we will start matinees again on the second Wednesday of the month.
We will be featuring “Darkest Hour” which we showed in July, but that evening did clash with a rather important football match, so we will run it again for those who missed it. More details in next month’s issue of Village Newsletter, Team News etc.
