Hampers Galore

19th November 2019
Hampers Galore

Is it too early to be talking about Christmas??? The chocolate tubs have been out in the supermarkets for weeks now, and I've seen the John Lewis advert every day on TV this week, so I'm sure I'm allowed to start blogging about the Festive season!

Right now I'm busy planning for our Christmas bingo special, where we will be raising to funds to buy a defibrillator for the village. We are going to be having 12 games of prize bingo as the main game, so I am currently making up a total of 36 hampers - 12 big, 12 medium, and 12 small. We then have a big money cash game, huge supersized raffle (featuring a giant fluffy unicorn!), tombola, and a very special Christmas Presents free bonus game for the first 90 people through the door, where they have the chance to win 12 Christmas presents throughout the course of the evening! On top of that we have our usual lovely homemade refreshments with warm mince pies, and a selection of complimentary refreshments and Christmas crackers to get the party started!

We are currently looking for donations - big or small - to add to our prize hampers, or to go straight to the £1000 we need to raise that night. If you can help in any way please let us know!

'til next time,

Donations Needed

Donations Needed

We have a very special bingo night happening in December, where we will be raising the money to buy a defibrillator for Marshland St James. There is no defibrillator currently available in the village, and we aim to change this by raising the £1000 we need.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is a condition of which no one is immune from. From children to adults, to fitness fanatics and couch potatoes; everyone and anyone is susceptible to cardiac arrest with over 30,000 occurring in the UK each year alone with little to no prior symptoms before a collapse.

The only definitive treatment against SCA is the life-saving shock from a defibrillator. Pairing this along with effective CPR can help to increase a victim’s chance of survival from 6% to 74% if delivered within the first 3-5 minutes of collapse.

To help us reach our £1000 target we are looking for donations for our special bingo night. If you have anything to would like to give you can drop donations off at Marshland Hall 9-3 Monday to Friday, or send us a message and we can collect from you at a time to suit.

Let's make this happen and install this vital piece of equipment in the village!

Event Planning

4th November 2019
Event Planning

It's as busy as always here at the hall - half term is barely behind us and we are now looking forward to our Christmas planning!

We would love to run a Santa's Grotto here at the hall this Christmas, so discussions are well underway as to how we make that happen. We are thinking Winter Wonderland with about a million fairy lights and Santa on a throne...watch this space! With all of the event planning in hand, we are also on the lookout for a new event coordinator as sadly I will be leaving after Christmas. My family and home commitments have grown at an alarming rate this year and I have decided that I need more time to deal with the demands of daily life outside of our lovely hall. It truly is a job that I love doing, and it breaks my heart to be leaving. On the positive side, it opens up an opportunity for someone else to come and take the reins and have an amazing time here. So, if you are interested, please get in touch!

Til next time,

The Calm Before the Storm...

The Calm Before the Storm...

It's Sunday afternoon, the chicken is in the oven, and I have a pile of potatoes and veg to peel. You would think I live alone in my house, as every man and boy mysteriously vanishes when the peeler comes out of the drawer (husband included!).

If you are thinking about the Half Term week ahead with the kids at home and not many plans on the horizon, then let us do the hard work for you - we've got the middle of the week covered! Tuesday it's Nerf Wars at the hall where the staff often become a walking target for all your kids with a Nerf Gun in their hands and a trigger finger with a mischievous owner! Wednesday it's time to burn off some energy in our very popular Multi Sports session; and then Thursday will get those brains ticking over with our Marshland Hall Mystery Day!

We hope to see lots of you at the hall next week - we've got Half Term sorted!

Last Night's Clairvoyant Evening

Last Night's Clairvoyant Evening

What a fantastic evening we had last night here at the Hall! Renowned medium Loraine Rees paid us a visit and the hall was sold out for her clairvoyant evening. Loraine was very entertaining and a good night was had by all. Unfortunately she doesn't do many shows anymore, but always pays us a visit each year, so we can't wait to see her again next year. Keep your eyes peeled for details of her next event here, or follow her on Facebook or her website for a full list of all her shows up and down the country.
