Week beginning November 1st 2004

'In the Groove’ - from Music Hall to the Movies : this is the title of the new exhibition in the Small Room of Hedon Museum. It is an exhibition of the sound, records and sheet music of that era, based on gramophone records found in the archives, together with a private collection of sheet music from the late 19th and early 20th Centuries.
Most of the record labels are now obsolete, but Tom Bond and John Anderton of Hedon have recorded one of each label and visitors can hear the music whilst looking at the display.
Upstairs till November 17th the exhibition 'Merchant Navy - Ashore and Afloat', is still available to visit and you can see artefacts, photographs and postcards from a private collection, including scenes of wrecks along the East Yorkshire coast.
Hedon’s excellent museum is tucked away behind Watmough’s Arcade off St Augustine’s Gate and reached from the Iveson Close car park. It is open every Wednesday and Saturday between 10.00 a.m. and 4.00 p.m. and is well worth a visit. Admission is free, and you are sure of a warm welcome.

Hedon Mothers' Union 60th Anniversary : On Thursday 28th October Hedon Mothers' Union held a service of Holy Communion in St. Augustine's Church to celebrate 60 years of work and prayer for the advancement of Christian principles in marriage and family life.
The Preacher was the Rev. Ivan Howitt and the Celebrant was the Rev Bill McLaren, Vicar in Hedon from 1981 - 1994.
It was wonderful to have representatives from all four branches in the Deanery and three Presidents – Provincial Mrs. Stella Vernon, Diocesan Mrs. Margaret Brookes and Deanery Mrs. Sheila Howard. Two previous Branch Leaders also attended - Mrs. Nellie Kitchen and Mrs. Christine McLaren.
Mrs. Joan Goulsbra, who was also a Branch Leader, was unfortunately not well enough to attend, but was in everyone’s thoughts.
The sun poured through the stained glass windows and made a memorable service beautiful.
Tea and cakes afterwards provided time to reminisce and look at photos, minute books and memorabilia from 1944 onwards.
One founder member, Mrs. Ada Dawson, was there and helped to cut the cake with the two ex Branch Leaders. When she joined the MU the meetings were held in the old vicarage in Ivy Lane and subscriptions were 3d - they are now £12.50!!
The next meeting of Hedon Mothers' Union is November 25th in the Church Room in Magdalen Gate at 2.00 p.m., when the speaker will be Paul Schofield on ‘Holderness Churches.’ Anyone who would like to hear the speaker or find out more about Mothers' Union is very welcome to attend or go to the web site at http://www.themothersunion.org

Paull Church Christmas Bazaar : time to start buying those stocking fillers again! St Andrew’s Church, Paull, are holding their Christmas Bazaar in the Village Hall on Friday November 12th starting at 6.30 p.m. Included will be tombolas for both children and adults, stalls selling home made cakes and gifts, and a raffle. Any gifts for the bazaar will be greatly appreciated.

Remembrance Day Parade : I’m sure all the churches in the area will be holding Remembrance Day services, but the one at Paull is just a little different. It will take place on the afternoon of Remembrance Sunday, November 14th, at 3.00 p.m., at the War Memorial at the junction of Town End Road, Turpit Lane, Back Lane and Thorngumbald Road. The parade will start from outside the village hall (opposite the lighthouse) and standard bearers and anyone who wishes to join the parade will be able to meet in the village hall beforehand. The service is open to everyone and anyone who wishes to carry a flag or standard or just join the parade will be made very welcome. Refreshments will be served in the village hall after the parade has dispersed.

Christmas is coming …. A date for your diary, because it’s one NOT to be missed : on November 26th the Christmas Light Switch-on in Hedon will take place at 6.30 p.m. in the Market Place, when Cllr. Irene Robinson, the Mayor of Hedon, will do the honours. The evening will have rides, Santa’s grotto, lots of stalls, shops open late and most in fancy dress, the Allison Hall available for refreshments and a sit down, and much more. There will also be a “Best Decorated Shop Window” competition amongst the local traders, to be judged on the night.
