We’re hardly likely to get bored this month in Metfield. People in and around the village are busy making, baking, sewing, writing and rehearsing for Christmassy events of every kind. The Christmas lunch has already happened. And there’s more to come – starting NEXT SATURDAY

But it’s worth remembering that Christmas is not a time of fun and jollity for everyone. So let’s spare a thought for those who might be lonely and welcome a short visit, or appreciate a lift to the shops or a bit of shopping done for them, or an invitation for a bite to eat, maybe just a change of scene, or to have someone put up their Christmas decorations or bring in the coal for them. Just a few moments of your time can make a whole heap of difference.

And, finally, don’t forget that you can still buy a copy of Christine Brennan’s book at Metfield Stores. It makes the perfect Christmas gift and is a bargain at only £10.00 a copy. If you can’t see them on display, ask a volunteer.

Winter entertainment

Just a few weeks to go until Christmas and Metfield has some fun events lined up to fend off the winter blues once these glorious autumn days come to an end. Don’t forget to get your tickets for the Panto from Metfield Stores or the Village Hall bar (details on the poster). There will be three performances and it should be a bundle of laughs. Stay cosy this winter and look out for anyone you know who could be vulnerable in cold weather, as well as those who might appreciate some company or having a meal cooked for them.
