Ladies Evening

**********************************

Michael Sexon
We are all deeply saddened to hear of the sudden death of Michael. A staunch support of the village hall since the idea of raising funds to build the new one came about in the early 90s. Always ready to lend a hand or equipment and offer commonsense advice when solutions to a problem were required. Quiet and gentle, a life well led.
Heartfelt condolences to Angela and all the family from the village hall team and wider community.
The funeral will be in Filleigh Church at 11am on Weds 14th December

In the middle of February the community of Filleigh lost a much loved friend with the sad news of the death of Alan Bulled following a short illness. He was a valuable member and trustee of Filleigh Village Hall and just quietly got on with helping others where ever he could. He also did the Downpark Weather Report, which he had done for many years. R.I.P. Alan.

Solar Photovoltaic Cells

PV Cells at Filleigh Village Hall

We have had 30 photovoltaic cells recently fitted to the hall. These were fitted by a local firm Earth Elements www.earthelements.co.uk and are part of our 'Green Dream' to cut down our use of non renewable resources. In the future we hope to install an air-source heat pump to reduce our oil usage for heating.

FVH Mural

We commissioned a local artist Vic Bailey together with Geoff Boucher to paint a mural on the large wall above the doors leading from the main hall into the meeting room. We wanted the mural to represent the main features of Filleigh. We are very pleased with the result and it adds a focal point to the hall.

Short Mat Bowls
Come and try this new sport for our hall. If you decide to join, there will be an annual membership fee of 5.00 each.  This includes the official Rule Book and an occasional newsletter.  There is a charge of 1.50 per evening, which will include tea/coffee and biscuits and use of the Village Hall Bowls.  To safeguard our new mats, ordinary footwear or socks will not be allowed and proper bowling shoes must be used at all times.  We will be able, on a temporary basis, to provide special overshoes (at a small charge of 20p).  The minimum age will be 10 years and children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.   If you would just like to have a game of pool rather than play bowls then the pool table is available for use on the same evening. The same charge of 1.50 per person will apply.

Ballroom Dance Classes
Come and take the opportunity to learning Ballroom Dancing. These classes are held every Wednesday night in the hall.  7.00 - 8.00 pm. for beginners followed by a class for improvers from 8.00 - 9.00 pm.
So if you want to keep fit and have fun - come and Dance the Night Away. If you want to learn or just brush up on your dancing skills then come and join Judy on  Wednesday nights. Phone 01769 572384 or 01271 325800 for more details.
If Ballroom dancing is not for you then try Modern Sequence Dancing - same time, same place, same contacts but on a Tuesday night.

Old Photographs
If anyone comes across any old photographs of Filleigh and the surrounding area or any other items of interest please contact Beryl Morgan  (01769 579948) , so that she can record and add them to the collection.  With luck we hope to get a grant to enable us to safely store the collection so that it can be put on regular display.

The Secrets of Castle Hill
During August 2003 there was the very first opportunity to see and purchase the book 'The Secrets of Castle Hill' which was written by the members of Filleigh History Club and contains amongst other gems many, previously unpublished, drawings and pictures of Castle Hill.  The book will be sold in aid of North Devon Hospice and other local charitable organisations.  Copies can be obtained by post at the price of 3.40.  Telephone 01769 579948 .   For further details of the book.
