You may remember the appeal made in January 2016 by the Ashwellthorpe Village Hall Committee for Community Chest tokens to be collected from the Eastern Daily Press newspaper scheme in the hope of gaining a grant towards the purchase of new chairs for the Village Hall. Unfortunately this bid was unsuccessful but with 2000 tokens collected by villagers and friends, it is good to hear from Carol Bushell, Chair of the Committee, that the spare tokens from this bid were passed to two local playgroups giving them enough to make their applications – both were successful and each was awarded £200 towards their projects.
The Village Hall is now going to make another application for funding for the chairs and, therefore,
during MAY 2016 can you help by once again collecting these Community Chest tokens. The Chest box will be in the Village Hall or tokens can be posted through Carol’s letterbox at 117 The Street, Ashwellthorpe.
