I can't believe that we are going to have our third Social on Thursday. They've been such fun - who knew carpet bowls on a 'slightly' listing floor could be such a crowd puller! We will have all the usual games and chat and we are also going to wheel out the rather marvellous potato baking machine with various fillings - so that's supper sorted for me!
It has been decided to confine the village celebrations to Sunday May 7th so as not to encroach on individual, national or other local activities. The Parish Council have sent us all the following details.
So the celebrations will start at 11am in the Priory Church with Songs of Praise to mark the Coronation with selected readings, hymns, music and prayers chosen by us. Maureen and David Frost (01328 830362) and Geoff Scott (01328 830940) would love to hear from you if you have a favourite hymn or reading that could be included in the service. As is usual for special days, the Church Flower Team with help from you will arrange tiny posies to larger displays of celebratory flowers throughout the church.
The CORONATION BIG LUNCH in Binham and Cockthorpe will take place on the Memorial Hall Playing Field (or indoors or under canvas depending on the weather!) from 2pm-6pm. We are adopting the format of Bring Your Own Picnic which was so successful last year on the Village Green. So do come and enjoy each other's company and take part in a Tug of War at 3pm and All Comers Cricket at 4pm. Come and join in and make up your teams. There will be some surprises in the Hall for tea.
The Youth Club will create some new decorations for the Hall and reflect their thoughts about the occasion into a message to the King over the next few weeks. Bunting, flags and other decorations will appear throughout the village and do contribute if you'd like to.
Here you will find information about past and future events happening at The Binham Village Memorial Hall.
