Attention Apple Lovers!

Do you like apples? Brian Lamb still has lots of them hanging on his trees and this Sunday, between 2 and 4pm, you are invited to go along to Greystone Cottage, Bere Ferrers,and help yourself! All Brian asks is that you bring something in which to take your apples home and, more importantly, everyone submits an envelope donation for the apples.  All donations will go towards helping to fund the Night Landing Site at Bere Alston for the Devon Air Ambulance - a worthy cause which may save someone's life!

Quiz Helps Local Charity

Eleven teams eagerly arrived at the BFS Club last night (Tuesday) to help raise money towards the EAT project at the Youth2Youth clubhouse in Bere Alston.
Rosie supplied all the questions and Doug was the Question Master for a very difficult quiz, partly sponsored by Yelverton Rotary Club.
Tasty brownies cooked by members of the youth club were consumed during half-time. Horner's Corner started off at a cracking pace, leading the scoring for most of the competition but some of the other teams caught up and Horner's Corner just managed to scrape the win. Particularly taxing was the picture round, with photos of strange and exotic fruits to name. Thanks to Doug and Rosie for the quiz - and the impressive scoreboard on the big screen television!

Maggie Cartwright

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Maggie Cartwright on Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer. She was in Derriford Hospital for a couple of weeks, but as her condition worsened and the end was not far off she was moved to a private room. Maggie will be sadly missed throughout the village. RIP.

November Entertainment at the BFS Club!

Blues at the Club

In between visits to Derriford Hospital to see my seriously ill wife, I popped in the BFS Club on Saturday night to join the cognoscenti gathered to listen to bluesman Jerry 'The Horse' Horsey. The first half was full of traditional blues, from the likes of Robert Johnson, John Lee Hooker and Elmore James, played on a variety of guitars. In the second half Jerry was joined by his old pal Gareth Hedges. An appreciative audience thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
