Stanton Social Committee

Overview …

The Stanton Social Committee organises two or three social events a year to bring the village together and is the powerhouse behind the Spring Fete and Novelty Dog Show.

The surplus at the end of each year is distributed amongst local charities and last year our main benefactor was the local homeless charity Doorway. This year we will be supporting two main charities – Teach Us Too (the campaign associated with Jonathan Bryan) and Julia’s House (providing practical and emotional support for families caring for a child with a life-limiting conditions). As in the past, we will also continue to support the primary school and the Parish Hall.

At the End of 2019 …

The last event we held was the Christmas Trail with a seasonal gathering at the Parish Hall. This was the first time we had held this event and we had a wonderful response with some excellent decorations and a good turnout for festive nibbles. Whilst it hadn’t been expected to be a big fundraiser, we were pleased to report a surplus of nearly £290 and we are planning to hold the same event in 2020.

 

Now for 2020 …

Jumble Sale

We held our Jumble Sale on Saturday 22 February at the Parish Hall and we are happy to report that we took over £350.

Spring Fete & Novelty Dog Show

It probably comes as no great surprise to anyone that, in the light of the Covid-19 outbreak, we have had to cancel this event.

However, we will return next year and it will all be bigger, better and more triumphant than before.

See you all in 2021
