£25,000 LEGACY FROM MRS BERYL UPRICHARD 

Local resident Beryl Uprichard has left £25,000 in her will to Tansley Village Hall. The Village Hall Committee was informed of the legacy in a solicitor's letter. 
 
Beryl, who  died on 4th July 2009, aged 85, used to live at 'Rotherwood' on the Nottingham Road before moving into the Ivonbrook Nursing and Residential Care Home in Darley Bridge when she became ill with lung problems. Beryl had no children and no surviving relatives in the UK. She was aware of the financial needs of the Village Hall, and also left legacies to other bodies. She and her husband formerly owned the Matlock Mercury. They moved to this area in 1975.
 
The Village Hall Committee is extremely grateful for this tremendously generous gesture by Mrs Uprichard.

Eddie with sketchbook and sculptures

Thank you to Riber resident Eddie Hallam who made a very interesting presentation about wildlife sculpture in aid of village hall funds.

Turnout for the presentation on 27th November was small, but Eddie's talk and display were greatly appreciated by those present. The talk was full of humour and anecdotes which kept the audience thoroughly engaged, and the slides of St Kilda were fascinating. It was interesting to see a selection of Eddie's sculptures (birds and an otter) and learn how they are made.

A total of £36 was raised for the Village Hall Restoration Fund.

Thank you to Jean Peters for providing the refreshments.

TANSLEY FILM BUYS FOUR NEW TABLES FOR THE VILLAGE HALL

Tansley Film has bought four new folding aluminium Gopak tables for the Village Hall. The tables are an exact match to the 12 existing grey-topped ones. The new tables will replace four old, brown, cumbersome steel tables, in the worst condition. Worn-out or missing rubber pads under their legs meant they were liable to damage the newly-renovated floor surface.

WAYS IN WHICH YOU CAN HELP WITH FUNDRAISING

Could you organise a fundraising event? We need as many people as possible to get involved in the village hall fundraising project. If you have a passion, a skill, a talent or an expertise, then please consider whether you are able to initiate or run an activity or an event yourself. We can help you publicise it. If you can't organise a project yourself, you could still help others with their projects. There have been some very successful fundraising events in the hall, including a medieval banquet and a quiz night. These events would never have taken place without the dedication of volunteers.

Members of the village hall committee, themselves volunteers, invite others to join them in raising money for this valuable community facility. Our aim is to hold at least one major event a month, but we shall need your help if we are to achieve this goal.

You could also help the fundraising effort by signing up to the online shopping scheme easyfundraising (see below).

MAMMA MIA NIGHT RAISES £166 FOR RESTORATION FUND

The Greek-themed Mamma Mia evening in the Village Hall on 21st May was a great success. Around 40 people attended, and the mood was lively and sociable. In the “Tansley Taverna” set up in the kitchen, guests were offered Greek salad and garlic bread and were able to buy wine, beer and soft drinks. Greek music in the background had some people dancing around the tables even before the film began! Once the film did start, the audience had a good sing-along to the old Abba favourites, and by the time the credits were rolling, some individuals were dancing in the aisles to enthusiastic applause from others. The evening ended with a raffle featuring an attractive array of Mediterranean-style prizes.

The event, organised by Tansley Film Club Committee, raised £166 for the Village Hall Restoration Fund.

Tables in the Village Hall were attractively set out with pretty cloths and Easter wreaths made by the talented Norma.

Thanks also to Marjorie Ramwell for her help in organising the event.

Doors opened at 10.30am and soon the hall was full of people, chatter and laughter   Excellent coffee and delicious hot cross buns were served by members of the Ladies Group.  It was good to see a lot of youngsters who had come along with their mums and grandparents to enjoy the morning.  Amazingly, each child won a raffle prize!
