EVENTS IN 2019/20

 

BATS IN THE BELFRY

Thursday, 23rd May 

An informative and entertaining evening dedicated to our wonderful bats.  Thank you to Samantha Pickering from North Devon Bat Care who gave a fascinating talk on British bats and how they live.  She brought along some of the bats that were in care at the time allowing us to see the little creatures up close.  When dusk fell we went on a walk around the churchyard where we observed the bats flying out from the church.

OPEN DAY

Saturday, 6th April  

A glorious day with a clear blue sky and lots of warm sunshine. 

Visitors were able to hear about our plans for the first phase of

the repair work and we kicked off our Eco-friendly churchyard. 

The children built Bug-ingham Palace, Huntshaw's first 5* hotel

for bugs, beetles and bees.  Materials including old bricks, decaying

logs, cardboard, newspapers and canes were used creatively to

construct the hotel.  When it was finished we sat back to enjoy

our work and a robin came along and perched on it.  His

enthusiastic chirping seemed to convey his appreciation of what

we had done.

                                    AN OPEN DAY

A successful Joint Open Day with Huntshaw Parish Hall took place on Saturday, 25th January 2020.  Around 70 people came along to the event which relaunched the Parish Hall and showcased the church.  There were displays of historic photographs and other memorabilia along with representatives from the Plough Theatre and Community 100.  A skittles team was (almost) recruited and music was provided by Truffetete.  Guided tours around the church were conducted although visitors tended not to linger as it was bitterly cold inside!   Delicious soups, buns and homemade cakes completed the afternoon.   

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                     A SKITTLES AND SOCIAL EVENING

                             Saturday 7 March 

Just before Covid-19 shut the country down we held a very successful skittles-themed evening.  Everyone had a go at skittling and help was on hand for the novices.  Skittling skill was varied but most people managed to keep the ball on the alley.  The evening was enlivened by a table top quiz and a raffle.  The beer and wine flowed and the pasties were delicious. 

 

Then Covid-19 came along and we went into lockdown.
