The Sports Club Jumble Sale was a great success – over £1000 raised
On behalf of all the Sports Club Committee
We would like to thank the people in the Village for their donations, draw prizes and support for the Jumble Sale, held on 30th March 2019, in the newly refurbished, Dennington Village Hall. Also we would like to thank the people in the surrounding Villages who donated goods etc and helped to “man” the stalls. Over £1000 was raised.

What an amazing success the Launch party was on Friday 1st March – thank you for coming!!
What a delight it was to participate in the launch party for the newly refurbished hall on Friday. there were over 200 people there, perhaps the largest gathering in the village for many years, so it was a significant moment. Everyone realised what a special occasion it was and we are delighted so many came to celebrate with us.
Stephen Burroughes, our honoured guest, gave an excellent speech and then handed the microphone to Susan Warren, who had opened the hall when she was 11 years old in 1985. She in turn handed the scissors to young Oliver Steward, who, after saying ‘I now declare this hall open’, cut the tape to much clapping and enjoyment from the audience. Below are some images of the event, put together to allow more to be seen.
Very special thanks to Maggie Archard and her team of helpers, and of course the team behind the bar, for their considerable help in preparing for and providing the food and service on the night.
And to finish off, here is the poem, written anonymously, about the new hall.
