Ribchester Village Hall Emblem"Thank you very very very much..!"

Well, we can think of one person who probably won't thank us for the above reference to the Cadbury's Roses ad - but thanks are due to her and another active champion of Ribchester Village Hall nonetheless.

Melissa Gray completed the first three monthsof her sponsored slim earlier this year, with a fantastic total of weight lost. She's hoping to raise about £300 for the Hall - a magnificent effort!

And Colin Cunliffe's recent presentation on St. Helena and Paraguay was equally magnificent. In fact, between the two of them, our fundraising target for the present has been reduced from £8,500 to just £2,500 left to raise.

Sincere thanks to both Colin and Melissa for their initiative. More enjoyable social fund-raising events are in the pipeline and will be posted on here and our Facebook page in due course.

We are hoping to continue improvements to the Hall later in the year - dependent on the outcome of current funding bids, so watch this space for news!
