Events at Weston Hills village hall
Norman Cooke can lay claim to the fact that the road where he lives, Broadgate, is five miles long.
Fortunately for him and his wife Betty though, they live opposite the village hall and so don’t have far to go when they need to post a letter.
The Post Office has been located at the hall on three mornings a week since the old one shut.
Sub-postmaster at Moulton Chapel Ken Kerr goes to the hall, taking a stock of food and household items as a service for villagers.
Ken says: “A lot of people are grateful and of course we deliver newspapers in the neighbourhood so we know a lot of people, which is one of the reasons we came here.”
The hall is also the venue for bingo sessions, short mat bowls, children’s parties and meetings of South Holland Phab, the physically handicapped and able bodied club.
On Friday, March 1 a race night is being held at the village hall (7.30pm) and tickets are £8, available from Anthony Casson.
Anthony is chairman of the parish council and village hall committee as well as being a school governor.
He admits the village is spread out, but says: “A school, village hall and pub are at the heart of any village.”
The other focal point is St John’s Church, which celebrates its 125th anniversary on November 9.
The church is currently raising money for church tower repairs and to have a toilet installed, so needs support for its flower festival in May and other events in the year.
