The annual Shirenewton Church Golf Classic was held, once again, at the local St. Pierre championship course, and attracted teams from across the UK and Ireland.
The day raised £4,500 for the Church fabric fund and £1,000 for St. David's Foundation.
Ours thanks to all involved and especially our sponsors.
About 45 people packed into the Church Room on Friday 3rd July for the annual Call my Bluff wine tasting.
£420 was raised to be equally split between Chepstow Street Pastors and the Church Fabric Fund. A representative Chepstow Street Pastors was present and gave a brief description of their work.
Call my bluff wine Tasting is designed to be fun wine tasting evening which requires absolutely no knowledge of the subject but does require a sense of humour.
A total of 6 wines in masked bottles are tasted - each of which have 3 descriptions read with varying degrees of accuracy - and teams have to use their skill and judgment (or just guess) which description was the real one. Needless to say, as the hour gets later the guesses become wilder!
There was also an (amusing?) wine related quizz to complete the evening.
Our thanks to all involved.
The annual village fete was on Saturday 13th June and the weather was not that kind but could have been a lot worse!
As always it's a great day out for the whole family. There were a full range of traditional fete activities such as the bottle store, tent, Pimms tent, skittles, welly wanging, etc. and lots of stuff for the kids!
A total profit of £6,233 was made. This profit was substantially up on last year in part thanks to the generous sponsorship (totaling £1,600) from the following:
In addition, raffle prizes were received from:
Carpenter Arms, Shirenewton/Mynyddbach
Eden Rose, Chepstow
And, in addition to the above, local villagers. Our thanks to all for their generous support.
The fete is a massive undertaking every year and couldn't be held without the hard endeavour of numerous people. Our thanks to all involved.
About 50 people packed into the Church Room on Friday 30th January to enjoy the annual six nations kick off.
This year we were lucky enough to have as guests speakers Eric Stephens the President of Gloucester Rugby Club accompanied by Malcolm Preedy an ex Gloucester Captain and England International.
Eric and Malcolm gave an engaging talk which was followed by a lively Q&A session.
Once again thanks to Jane and Glynis for the fabulous ‘six nations’ ploughmans meal. There was a pay bar with a ‘six nations’ theme and, of course, the ever popular predictor allowed everyone to record their forecasts.
The event itself raised a profit of just over a £967.
Our thanks to all involved.
