Afternoon Cream Tea

Held on Wednesday June 26th. Well it might not have been a warm summers afternoon in lovely sunshine, but it was still a great event. Many thanks to all those who came to this afternoon’s Cream Tea and we hope you enjoyed yourself and had plenty of (home made) scones, cream, jam and tea. We look forward to seeing you at our next event.

Plant Sale and Coffee Morning

Saturday May 18th. Upleadon Village Hall held a plant sale.

Many thanks to all those who came and bought plants, tea, coffee and cake. Most were surprised at the amount of plants and variety on offer. Hopefully all those who bought plants now have more colourful gardens and are enjoying the look they bring. There was a good variety of geraniums, petunias, dahlias, bizzy lizzies (impatiens), nicotianas as well as tomatos, cucumbers, sweet and hot peppers and chillis for sale. We hope to be able to offer an even better selection next year.

9-Pin Skittles against Brand Green/Pauntley

Held at Brand Green

Saturday 20th April at Brand Green Village Hall. A great evening was had on Saturday at the Brand Green Village Hall for our regular (twice a year) friendly 9-pin skittles match. Both teams were well supported with 12 players – we even gave one of our players to Brand Green to even up the numbers! Turned out we gave them one of our better players! Despite fighting hard to the end, I think we were ‘weighed down’ by the excellent buffet laid on in-between frames 3 and 4. Thanks to Anne and all of her helpers for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Final scores were Brand Green/Pauntley 357, Upleadon 344 (not quite as per the scoreboard). Let’s see if we can do better come the Autumn for the return match!

Mike’s Fun Pop Quiz

Saturday March 9th, 2019. Mike’s Fun Pop Quiz returned to the Upleadon Village Hall for the 6th year running. Some of the usual teams couldn’t make it, but we still had 10 teams out and they all seemed to enjoy themselves. Again we had a tie for 1st place which made an exciting finish with a tiebreak question. We made an excellent £308 for the hall.
