Street Fayre

Thanks to everyone who ventured out in inclement weather to attend the Street Fayre Planning Meeting. For those of you who couldn’t make it this is what it was all about…

The Street Fayre has become a tradition enjoyed by everyone over the years. Its origins go back to when fund raising was vital for the development of the North Aisle Community Area. Working with the Parochial Church Council (PCC) the funds help to provide a clean bright meeting place for the villagers of Hankerton. This year’s funds helped to pay for replacement lighting.

Last year we were extremely short of helpers, and most of us are not getting any younger, hence the Planning meeting. We need more volunteers and would really appreciate help, even if you can only spare half an hour. If you feel you can give some time then just contact one of us.

Many thanks,

The North Aisle Committee.

Hello all !   The Hankerton website is looking very empty at the moment…..

Are there any events coming up in the village ?  Please can you let me know of anything that’s happening and let me have any posters, images, text, whatever – I can then put it on the website and help the events attract more people.
