Fifield News …with some events not to be missed!

Following their successful introduction last year, the Coffee with homemade cake, soup and bread mornings return to Fifield Parish Hall on the first Thursday of the month from November through to March. Do not let dreary weather or dark days get you down, come along to the Parish Hall between 11:00 and 13:00 and enjoy good company and good food. At £3 a head all-in, this has to be one of the best bargains around! Contact Catherine Hitchens (01993 831881) for more information.

The Foundry Men return to Fifield for one night only – Friday 9 November at the Parish Hall – with their musical comedy, The Ministry of Biscuits by Philip Reeve (writer of Mortal Engines) & Brian Mitchell (writer of Those Magnificent Men), called “Absolutely hilarious – satire at its best” by the Edinburgh Evening News, when it was played at the Edinburgh Fringe. Tickets from Catherine Hitchens, but numbers are limited, so book early. Meanwhile, it is London, 1948: Stop! Think before you eat a biscuit. Is it fancy? If it is then you are a criminal! The Ministry of Biscuits casts its sinister shadow over every elevenses in the land. Health Warning: Don’t come if you don’t want to laugh until your ribs ache.

The Friends of St John the Baptist Church are holding a Coffee Morning in the Parish Hall on Saturday 10 November. Coffee, edibles and the chance to do some pre-Christmas shopping.

The Fifield Good Neighbour Scheme is now inaugurated, and the Fifield Neighbourhood Watch group is also now in operation. More information from Catherine Hitchens.
