UPDATE ON THURSDAY, 11th MAY
Our Coffee Morning welcomed guests on a warm day (rain was due) so it was nice to be able to have the doors open. Not yet warm enough for the gazebos — hopefully we can use them next month — weather permitting.
With the help of our volunteers, the morning was set up and ready for a good turn-out. This meant we made £202 for the Village Hall, thanks so much to the members who bought raffle tickets and bric a brac! Thanks to those who contributed raffle prizes for the table — so much appreciated!! A big thank you to Geraldine for the lovely, fragrant flowers that sold within minutes. Once again, the Snape Good Neighbours team were in the kitchen with tea and coffee — thank you to the team for their continued support.
The Coronation celebrations were enjoyed on the 6th at Snape Church — rather cold and wet, but very much enjoyed by a huge number of residents who attended.
The next Coffee Morning is on the 8th of June, from 10am to 11:30 — all are welcome.

UPDATED ON FRIDAY, 14th APRIL
We had an excellent turn-out for the Coffee Morning yesterday — so lovely to see familiar faces and some new faces.
We had the opportunity to thank Janet, Peter, Mary and Mike for all their hard work over the years. This was something welcomed by local residents, who have know them for some years. They haven’t gone away, just stepping down from the Committee.
The morning’s event made £226, which goes towards the Village Hall maintenance — thank you everyone.
We are actively looking for new members for the Committee, and helpers, to manage the hall and support the village — if you are interested, please do make contact. As the new Chair, I look forward to continuing the excellent work undertaken by so many.
The next Coffee Morning is on the 11th May, from 10 until 11.30 — we look forward to seeing you all there.

UPDATED ON WEDNESDAY, 12th APRIL
This month's coffee morning will be on Thursday April 13th at 10am as usual.
I am writing on behalf of many people who regularly use Snape Village Hall to express our heartfelt thanks to Mary Wyllie, Janet and Peter Bunn, and Mike Hill for all their support and commitment to the hall over numerous years! Mary, Janet and Mike are retiring from the Committee this month. They have all worked tirelessly to help improve the hall, and make it the popular venue it is today! Although Peter has not been on the Committee, he has been roped in for all sorts of jobs thanks to Janet! They will be much missed, but have definitely earned their retirement!
I am sure they will all continue to support the hall, and we will see them at the regular monthly Coffee Mornings! Thank you to all of you from all of us!!
Caroline Beach (former Village Hall Chair)
and too many others to list!!
UPDATED ON SATURDAY, 11th MARCH
As this is my last update for the hall, I would like to thank everyone for their support whilst I have been temporary chairman.
Temporary has been rather a longer time than we envisaged but at last a new chairperson will be installed at our AGM on April 3rd.
We had a brilliant well attended coffee morning in March. We also took £230 for the hall.
Next month's coffee morning will be on Thursday April 13th at 10am as usual. See you all there. It may even be warm enough to have the gazebos up and enjoy a garden coffee morning.
I also want to record the debt Snape owes to Janet and Peter Bunn who have watched over the hall, done bookings and repairs and a million other little (and large) jobs that we all take for granted for the last 10 years. Thank you both, you will be a difficult act to follow.
Mike Hill also has given at least 10 years of his time and has retired recently. Thanks Mike for your time and meticulous organising of our books we have for sale.
Lastly farewell to me though I will be doing some fundraising as needed as long as I am able.
UPDATED ON WEDNESDAY, 1st MARCH — Next coffee morning is on Thursday, 9th March. See you all there!
UPDATED ON THURSDAY, 9th FEBRUARY
We now have all our committee posts in place, so thank you for your support. They will be formally appointed at the next AGM (on 3rd April). A couple more committee members would be useful, so if you think you would like to join us we would be happy to hear from you.
The February Coffee Morning today was well attended and very lively. We seem to get more and more people each month. Over the years it has become a regular event on the Snape calendar.
Any items for the bric-a-brac are always welcome, as we all enjoy looking and buying.
Notice of AGM 2023
Our AGM will be on 3rd April at 5pm in the Village Hall.
UPDATED ON SATURDAY, 14th JANUARY
Thank you so much to all those who helped with the Coffee Morning last Thursday.
A few regulars were ill, or could not attend,
but we still made a healthy profit of £126 — many thanks for all your efforts.
We look forward to seeing everybody in February.
It will be nice when we can get the gazebos out again — it makes a lovely atmosphere.
Kind Regards, Mary
