Update on the Reopening of The Queen: As the original opening date looms, we have encountered a few setbacks. Unfortunately, the locals’ night and the official opening date will need to be postponed as a result. Luckily, this will only be a few days and the wait will not be very long, so do not despair! The new dates are:

Local’s Night: 29 July 2015

Official Opening: 31 July 2015

We hope to see you all very soon.

SUMMER EVENINGS IN BRANDESTON: For some time there has been desultory talk of making concerted use of the array of sporting facilities we now have on the playing field, by arranging a particular evening of the week when we can go down en masse to play tennis, petanque, five-a-side football, basketball and just run around. To make it go with a swing we also thought we should use the new barbecue facilities built precisely with this in mind.

So on Wednesday evenings, weather permitting, from 6:30 there will be a hot barbecue on the playing field so bring along your own food and booze and join the party. Even if you don’t fancy doing anything sporting you can just turn up and the barbecue isn’t obligatory either.

SPORTS EQUIPMENT: There have been kind donations of tennis rackets and balls for anyone to use for a knock-about. They will be kept in the chest in the tennis court along with the spare sets of petanque boules.

So if you fancy a game just help yourself.

Brandeston Meals on Wheels

Our monthly lunch seems to be going from strength to strength and we are very grateful to everyone who supports it through their attendance and the people who help us with the many tasks involved. Jane and I are wondering if there might be a demand for a 'meals on wheels' type extension to the lunch for anyone who might be housebound or poorly. I think we would have to restrict the delivery area to Brandeston and Kettleburgh, but in the first instance we would just like to gauge demand. So, if you would like to use this new service (sadly only once a month, usually the second Tuesday) or know someone who would, please let Jane (685190) or me know and we will get it organised.

Hearing Loop Installed

With grateful thanks to The National Lottery through its Big Lottery Fund, the village hall has installed a hearing loop around the main hall. Its installation will allow people to hear much better whenever amplified sound is used by switching their hearing aids to the T position.
