The Hot Doggers – village resident Tony Craven and his band are returning to the village hall stage in September. Tickets £10 in advance with nibbles. (£12 on the door but I wouldn’t rely on that!).

The Village Bar is open every Friday evening from 6pm for junior training until late with regular barbecue, on Saturdays from 5-9 pm and on some Sundays when there are matches. Come and join friendly conversation and banter over a pint (other drinks available!). Occasional quizes or dominoes or other surprises. Bring your neighbour! If you are interested to help, please contact Dennis by email or just turn up.

Any other business

Some of you will remember the survey, carried out 18 months ago, about what people wanted from Sessay Village Hall.  There has been some delay in reporting back the outcomes from the survey, but the committee has not been idle.  The survey indicated several areas where work could be done, and work has already started. This report has been written and will highlight work that’s been done in the context of the survey and where more work can be done and how that can happen. It will be published on this website following approval by the Trustees of Sessay Community Trust and the Committee by August 8th.
