DUCK RACE – MONEY RAISED

Open Gardens Weekend 26th and 27th May

On Sunday and Monday 26th & 27th May why not have a relaxing afternoon from 2pm to 6pm in the beautiful Dorset village of Sydling St Nicholas looking round some lovely gardens.  The village is quietly situated in a south-facing chalk stream valley in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.  Get your tickets and guides in the Village Hall. Refreshments and toilets are available in the Village Hall.  There will be some excellent plants for sale in a marquee on the Village Hall lawn.  There is adequate street parking in the village.

THE VILLAGE HALL POST CODE IS DT2 9NX

 

 

Latest News on the Village Hall Refurbishment

Dear all

Refurbishment of the Village Hall is nearly complete but has slipped slightly.  John Stiles will finish the painting on the 1st or 2nd May but, for various reasons not of our making, delivery of the kitchen equipment is not yet complete so the final date of completion is not yet known.  Without the kitchen worktop and refrigeration facilities it has been decided that Cakes and Teas will replace the scheduled Cream Teas for the Duck Race on the 5th May.  Our apologies for that.  In the meantime the small room (currently called The Committee Room) is being used for small functions and can be booked.  Contact Helen on 01300 341777 (helenbaird@icloud.com) – or Jo on 01300 341620 (jocropp@btinternet.com) for details.

DOG THEFTS IN OUR AREA

Please be aware that there has been a spate of Dog thefts in the area. Apparently a dog was found abandoned near Wardon Hill. The thieves are only interested in the bitches for breeding purposes and any male dogs are left abandoned.
Also, a white transit van been seen in several locations in the village, appearing to act suspiciously.  Might be perfectly innocent (and there are a lot of them about!) but please be vigilant and report any unusual activity to the police.
If you think something is not quite right,  a message out on The Sydling Informer would not go amiss either.
