Trellech Village Hall Newsletter – May 2016


Last week I was driving home from a trip to North West Wales where I’d enjoyed a few days of glorious blue skies and sunshine.  Almost as soon as I drove past the ‘Welcome to England’ sign in Shropshire on my way home, the heavens opened and I drove through driving rain, sleet and thick snow.  Talk about four seasons in one day!  Now we’re forecast some warmer and sunnier days – just in time for the weekend we hope.

This month there’s some exciting news from Trellech Teas – including the results from the last quarter’s accounts and some special Tea Times coming up.  We also have a Table Top Sale coming up, but we’ve moved the date as it clashed with an event at the Methodist Church.  Plans for the Trellech BIG Weekend are moving along nicely too.

Sadly folks, this is my last newsletter.  Fear not, though, your monthly missive will be continuing so you won’t miss out.

More on all this news and events below.



Trellech Teas news
Friday May 13th
Next week we have a Take Over Teas, this time being run by Trellech’s Busy Bodies Play Group.  As you probably know, the Take Over Teas is an opportunity for a fund raising group to take over our weekly event and all the income, after expenses, goes to their group.Busy Bodies have run the Teas before and it’s always great fun.  So please come along any time between 2:00pm and 4:30pm and support them – even if you don’t normally get to Trellech Teas.

Quarterly results
In the first three months of 2016 we raised just over £1,200 at Trellech Teas.  This is one of our best quarters since we started in September 2012.  Overall, since we began, Trellech Teas has raised an impressive £14,767!  Once again this is totally down to the fantastic team of Tea Ladies and bakers who give their time, resources and baking skills for free.  I know their input – however great or small – is very much appreciated.  Huge thanks to each and every one of you.

If anyone would like to see the detailed accounts please email Sarah (address below).


A right royal celebration
Friday June 10th 2:00pm – 4:30pm


Trellech Teas will be hosting an afternoon tea to celebrate the Queen’s 90th birthday (any excuse!).  It’ll be Trellech Teas XL – the same great cakes, tea and coffee but we’ll also have some savoury snacks on offer and maybe some cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off!

If you’d like to contribute something to this event please contact Sue Flower who is co-ordinating it.  Sue Flower –

This is my last e-newsletter.  I’ve been putting finger to keyboard pretty much every month since the first regular newsletter in 2012 (and a few random ones before that!) and it’s time for someone else to take over the honours.  Christopher Edwards is a Trustee for the Village Hall.  Many of you will know Chris as one of the organisers of talks hosted by the Monmouth Conservatives.  If you have any news relating to the Village Hall that you would like included in future e-newsletters then please let Chris know.  His email address is
