Bulbs
We have also been planting bulbs in the Churchyard in memory of Roger Collins, a former Club President and a lovely man who died some time ago. They remind all of us who knew him, of Roger!

  Murder Mystery

We had a brilliant Murder Mystery Evening at the Terrace Restaurant, Pym Street, Tavistock on Saturday featuring the Tavonians with its production of “Weddings can be Murder!”. We raised approximately £650 for Meningitis Now - a great result!

The Trees of Light

Tree of Light Presentation 2014

Here is a photograph of the Charities receiving their cheques from Lion President Pat Macauley - the final total for donations for Trees of Light was £5,187, The Club then topped this up to £5,400 - so each charity received £1800. Charities supported were local branches of the Chestnut Appeal, Motor Neurone Disease and the Tavistock Chemotherapy and Triangle Centre.

There will be another payment of around £200 when we receive gift aid. So £2000 for each Charity is a great result and we know how much it meant to be able to remember loved ones especially at Christmas.....

Spooktacular

The Spooky Walk became a great Spooktacular Children’s Party!!

The weather forecast was right and it poured from 5 o'clock on. 

So we concentrated all our spookiness on the Community Football Club

We had all the activities as planned – the apple bobbing, the doughnuts, the spooky fruit machine, the spooky costume fancy dress and the lanterns.  Big thanks to Mia Aloui for doing party games with spooky music and movement from 4.30 -5.00 and to the great witches who were there because they say they are scared of flying in the wind and the rain and they even gave out sweets!  There were lanterns to make and milk bottles to make into spooky lanterns to take home, glowsticks and spooky tattoos.

So thank you to everyone who turned a disaster into a triumph.  And we made some money for that wonderful organisation the Children's |Hospice and the lovely people who support them.
