IF the success of The Marjoram Beehive Association’s first major event is anything to go by, managing the village hall should present no problems.

IF the success of The Marjoram Beehive Association’s first major event is anything to go by, managing the village hall should present no problems.

The association was forced to take over the management of Marjoram Hall at Gosberton Risegate when the last organisation quit quite suddenly, leaving the Busy Bees Playgroup high and dry with no one to pay rent to.

Bookings clerk Brenda Kitchen said the new association was “absolutely skint” and so was fundraising with things like children’s discos.

However, the village turned out in force to support the first major event, an Easter fair, with between 60 and 80 people joining in a treasure hunt organised by herself and Vicky Kitchen, an Easter egg hunt arranged by Wayne Smith, as well as refreshments, side shows such as face painting, a tombola and cake stall.

“It was very busy,” said Brenda, who understands the total from the day will be £427. “We thought we were going to lose the hall and are trying to get help from anywhere and everywhere and fundraising to put oil in the tank and things like that. I was really pleased. If we carry on like that I can see no problems in managing the hall.”

A charity bingo is planned on Friday, May 20 (7pm).
