Hawkchurch Garden Club Annual Show CANCELLED

The committee has taken the sad decision to cancel this year’s Show.  It is a great disappointment to cancel for a second year, but with increasing Covid cases in the area we felt that we could not take the risk of holding an indoor event with a large number of people.  Some larger horticultural societies in […]

Film Nights Update

Our audience for ‘Little Women’ last month was a little more select than usual, which was perhaps to be expected, what with Covid restrictions being extended, people having other commitments and the film being widely screened in cinemas before the pandemic. Hopefully more of you will be able to attend this month’s presentation. On Monday 2nd […]

November Hawkchurch Film Nights – 1917

Very many thanks to those of you who attended the matinee and evening performances of ‘Emma’ last month – we ‘sold’ 25 tickets in all and were pleased overall with how things went.  Obviously the situation was far from ideal, with obligatory face coverings, social interaction not permitted outside individual groups of ticket-holders and lack […]

Hawkchurch Film Nights

Huge thanks to those of you who responded to the Covid-19 consultation last month.  Of the 38 people who responded, 28 said that they were happy for the film nights to resume as soon as Hawkchurch Village Hall reopens, provided the appropriate Covid-19 counter-measures were in place – 73% of the total votes cast is […]
