Quiz Night

Another successful quiz night at the village hall on the 8th June raised £300 towards the upkeep of the centre.

72 locals and visitors enjoyed a ‘bring and share’ supper. £90 in prize money was given away and a fun time had by all.

Look out for the next one in the winter which will be a fish and chip supper.

Thornton Community Centre needs you

A couple of hours a month to spare?

Why not come along and join the trustees looking after the village community centre?

It is not an onerous position and there is plenty of support from the other trustees. We are gradually upgrading the facilities at the centre for the benefit of all the community but could do with some help and some fresh ideas.

We also have an events sub committee who are trying to bring new and varied events to the hall and we too are in need of helpers in the kitchen/on the door/putting out the furniture etc.

Why not become involved – it is a great way to secure the future of the best amenity in the village and make new friends along the way.

Play at the Community Centre

Last minute tickets are still available for this comedy play – Caught in the Act – at the Community Centre from 8th -11th May. Get your tickets from the shop or by phoning 01530 469714. If you have not been to one of these productions before, they are brilliant – and a bargain at just £5!

Make an Easter garden!

Whatever age you are, why not make an Easter Garden for the display in Thornton’s St. Peter’s church next weekend. And what a great way to keep the children busy!

All under 16’s who have made a garden will receive a small Easter Egg to say “thank you” for taking part. “What’s this all about” you may ask? Well; it will be similar to the Christmas Tree Festival except we are requesting portable, home-made miniature gardens to be brought to St. Peter’s church to help us all celebrate the Easter season. The church will be open to receive your garden on Friday 26th April between 3pm & 6.30pm and also Saturday 27th April between 10am and 12 noon. “When can the Gardens be viewed?” The church will be open for the All Age Service at 10.30am on Sunday 28th April, please do come along and see what we’re all about. The church will also be open on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, 27th and 28th April, from 2pm – 5pm. Entry is free and refreshments will be available to buy. “How could I make my own miniature Easter Garden?” .
