First Greetham Cafe event
We had over 40 people there and a good time was had by all. This will happen every Thursday from 10 am to 12. Good coffee, good cake, good company! See you next week!
From our own correspondent, Anne Yates aged 9 +
This was my second Soup and Sweets. It was a cold day and the snow was just melting. So I opted for the thick tomato soup to start with. It was delicious and warmed me up. Next followed minestrone soup. It tasted great. After a short interval I got stuck into the roulade and meringue. Pops had the same with cream and whipped cream too!
My sister won the last prize in the raffle. 120 best Yorkshire tea bags!. Fortunately Granny agreed to buy them off her so she was well happy. £175.70 was raised for flood victims by the raffle.
Thank you very much to all those who did such a splendid job making and serving the food.
Excellent evening last night at the Community Centre. Don organised a Ceilidh to raise money for the Syrian refuges. McGoo did their stuff and Billie and Colin provided hot dogs - all very much appreciated.
Gathering donation to Air Ambulance
Gathering Triples Air Ambulance Donation
On Thursday October 22nd, the Greetham Gathering’s Committee and helpers met with Charlotte Marson from the Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Rutland Air Ambulance Service (DLRAA) at Colin Easson Motors in Cottesmore, Rutland, to present a cheque in support of the DRLAA. In 2014, the first year of the Greetham Gatherings, the committee were able to present a cheque to the DLRAA for £450. 2015 has proven to be a much more successful year for the Gatherings, and with all the extra sup- port from the public – and in particular from the good folk in Greetham, the committee were delighted to present a cheque for £1500 to the DLRAA.
The picture shows Martin Fairbairn, treasurer for the Greetham Gather- ings, present a cheque for £1500 to DLRAA representative Charlotte Marson. In the picture are, from left to right: Gilbert Thomas, Charlotte Marson, Roly Easson, Debbie Easson, Malcolm Radford, Mike Carr and Martin Fairbairn.
The Greetham Gathering is an informal meeting of owners and enthusi- asts with interests of classic and vintage motorcycles, cars and other ve- hicles. It is held once a month on the third Thursday of May, June, July, August and September, in the grounds of Greetham Community Centre, Great Lane, Greetham, Rutland LE15 7NG. The event is open from about 5:00pm until dusk. All are welcome – with or without a classic or vintage vehicle! We invite visitors to come along and savor the relaxed setting and informal atmosphere. Relax and enjoy a drink (hot and cold!) and a bite. We offer hot fast-food, cakes, teas, coffees, and a licensed bar. There is ample parking with tarmac for the motorcycles.
All profits are donated to the local Air Ambulance service (DLRAA) and we also have a raffle to further that cause. Further and up-to-date infor- mation can be found at our website – www.greethamgathering.co.uk
We look forward, with your support, to the 2016 Gatherings being even more successful and raising even more for the DLRAA. Thank you for all your support in 2015.
Autumn Village Clear Up
A very big thank you to Anne, Dave, Gill, Roy, Lesley, Jane, Lorraine, Ka- ren, Linda, Sandy, Stef and his daughter for a good morning’s swoop on litter. 16 bags of refuse were picked up from the streets and paths of Greetham in a valiant clean sweep. I am delighted to report that we have noticed a great improvement since our last clear up and found far less dog mess and general litter, especially on the Community Centre field and up GreatLane.Let’shopethisisthebeginningofanewerain Greetham and that we can now be justly proud of our lovely clean village.
Please keep up the good work and take all litter home with you, or pop it
in one of the many bins around the village.
