SMRA – Feb 2012

Village Hall Christmas Tree

As usual, the lovely Christmas tree which was outside the Village Hall this year was donated by Dale Wildern. Many thanks go to him for another year.

Usually put up by Steve Case and other members of the Case family, this year our thanks go to Lionel Cave-Ayland, Mike New, Colin and Jenny McEwen for cutting the tree down and putting it up outside the Village Hall. Also to Ben Case and Mary Case for putting up the lights in what was rather cold windy weather just before Christmas.

SMRA meetings are on the 2nd Wednesday of the month, usually in the Village Hall, but occasionally elsewhere if the hall is already booked. Please check on the village website to confirm the location if you would like to come to a meeting, or phone either Mary Case on 01793 826038 or Julie Hatherall on 07857 310624.

Diamond Jubilee celebrations in South Marston 1952-2012

There are early plans to hold a street party in South Marston over the Jubilee weekend: June 2nd – 3rd 2012.

A first meeting has taken place. We are now asking anyone who has any ideas, any interest in taking part in plans, or would like to be involved in any way to come to a Jubilee meeting on Wednesday 22nd February at 7.30pm in South Marston Village Hall.

Early ideas include road closure outside the school with a street party and Jubilee picnic tea; also a display in the Village Hall of old photos of villagers and village buildings from the 1950s onwards.

It would be lovely to see a good group of people interested in making the Jubilee celebrations special.

Old photographs and memorabilia of South Marston

We are hoping to put together a fascinating collection of old photographs, memorabilia etc. of South Marston from the 1950s for the Queen‘s Diamond Jubilee weekend on Sat 2nd – Sun 3rd June.

If you have anything suitable, we would love to hear from you. We can copy photographs and other documents straight away, so you would not have to part with them for more than a couple of minutes, and we promise to take good care of them! We hope to put this display on in the Village Hall so there should not be any danger of damage by heavy rain etc.
