12th March - A brilliant turn-out again for the monthly coffee morning. At least 50 residents enjoyed a good chin-wag, it was lovely to see everyone so on form on such a windy day.
23rd February - What a fabulous evening 70 of us had at the Village Hall! The Jasper Ceilidh Band were fabulous, their caller is brilliant, and so there was a lot of fun without too many mistakes . Julia laid on a fabulous ploughman's, ably assisted by Bet, Diane and Maureen with bumbly help from me . Thank you to everyone for coming along, it seemed that everyone had a very enjoyable time.

11th February - Fantasticly well-attended coffee morning at Hilltop Garden Centre - we thank Age UK for coming along to talk to everyone at their tables about the work they do. It was greast to hear everyone chatting happily, and we wish Pandora well after her tumble. Many familiar faces, and some new ones - a lot of interest in coming along to find out more about our committees ready for nominations for the AGM, so we hope there will be new faces for you to welcome at the end of March. Thank you to everyone who came along, and to Hilltop for allowing us to gather together.
2nd February- Work has started at long last on the Fire Station Project. The under-path has been laid and the flower bed is now in situ. There will be a new bench and litter been placed alongside the path, and the top tarmac will be done once the weather settles. A big thank you to the players of the Postcode Lottery, to Weeley Parish Council for a new bench and litter bin, and to those who have given generously to WiB funds. We will need to hear people's views about the improvements once finished, as part of our report back to the Postcode Lottery.
23rd February - Sorry there hasn't been a news item lately, one has been a bit pre-occupied. The long term prognosis for Colin is looking good, although he will have to have another bout of chemo in a week's time back in London. I'm sure it won't be long before he'll be back to annoying you all though!
The coffee morning on the 8th was very well attended. We no longer do tokens, and biscuits are no longer provided, so you can just have whatever you feel you'd like to on the day. (I know some of you quite enjoy Hilltop's breakfasts as a treat!) Age Concern will have a representative at our next coffee morning on the 12th February.
Community Litter picks are still taking place, please let us know if you would like to join us, so we can have the relevant equipment available. We start from either Weeley Council Offices for the Village, or Hilltop for the Heath 10am on the third Mondays of the month.
Bookings are now being taken for the Barn Dance in February, so please get in touch now for tickets.
1st January - We wish all Weeley Residents a very Happy New Year and look forward to lots of social and community activities over the coming months. Unfortunately Colin has been forced to retire as Chairman of the Association through ill-health, although he will continue to contribute as soon as he feels more able. He is still currently in St Bart's in London, and we will let you know when he is back home.
We now have a new e-mail address- firstname.lastname@example.org
