Pontesbury Apple Day: Saturday 23 September 11 a.m. – 3 ish

Can we come and harvest your apples and turn them into juice using our giant press ?
In addition to juicing, we can also supply pasteurised juice or even juice for your own cider making. Funds raised will be split between the local library and a new community reflective garden.
Local produce and craft stalls will be on hand for you to enjoy and purchase from. Also refreshments and a lunchtime barbeque and our wonderful village Ukulele band. If you would like to come and display, demonstrate or sell your produce then please contact Brian Fisher tel 01743 79251 (no fee).

Co-op Local Community Fund

The trustees of Pontesbury Public Hall would like to express their gratitude to the Pontesbury Co-op for being included in the Local Community Fund. The Public Hall received a most generous grant of £1,559 which has been used to purchase 40 additional padded chairs for the benefit of Hall users and the balance towards four small tables and a trolley to carry them.
The trustees are very glad to be included in the Local Community Fund which is a fine, well-thought-out initiative by the Co-op which involves customers selecting their preferred charity. The Fund has been of assistance to many charities, especially at a time when any funding is difficult to come by.

Thank you from the Scouts

Thank you to everyone who has saved their Sainsburys Active Kids vouchers for us. We are really pleased that we have been able to order a new tent for stores which will be used by the ever increasing number of children who are involved in Scouts locally.
