Week beginning April 5th 2004

Anniversary celebration for Holderness Lions : Holderness Lions have just celebrated their first Charter Anniversary with a Dinner at the Ganstead Golf Club. This was well attended - fourteen Lions Clubs were represented and the civic guests were the Mayor and Mayoress of Hedon, Mrs. Ann Suggit and Mrs. Jennie Suggit. During their first year the Lions have raised money in many and various ways - e.g. local village fairs, raffling hampers at Christmas, Easter Egg raffles, a book stall in Hedon Market place and the regular Farmers' Bingo sessions at The Haven Arms, the next one of which is on Wednesday April 14th. They have also served the local community by giving boxes of biscuits to the local residential homes at Christmas, taking senior citizens to see Bilton Amateurs perform and also taking a coach full of people to the Christmas concert given by Bridlington Lions. They have endeavoured to get local schools involved in Lions World Sight Day and many pupils from South Holderness School entered the Peace Poster Competition.
The Lions motto is "We Serve" - if you want to learn more about out how they do this and perhaps join in and help, then please ring Lion Eileen on 01482 890197.

More Holderness Lions : still on the subject of Holderness Lions, they tell me that their recent Farmers Bingo was the best one yet and that the numbers are increasing every month. The next Bingo Session will be on Wednesday April 14th at the Haven Arms, Hedon. Eyes down at 8.00 p.m., admission £1.50 - this gives you two books with ten games per book. There are bacon, pork and gammon joints, sausage and pork chops to be won. Why not give it a try? These evenings have proved so successful that the Lions are hoping to add another venue for Farmers Bingo, this time on the fourth Wednesday of the month. I will let you know when and where just as soon as I have th information to hand, so watch this space!

Hedon Coffee Morning : an Easter Coffee Morning will be held on Tuesday April 6th in the Alison Hall, St. Augustine’s Gate, Hedon, starting at 10.00 a.m. The price of admission will be £1, which includes your cup of coffee as well as an Easter Bun, and there will be a raffle and a souvenir stall. All proceeds will go to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

Easter Bonnets in Hedon : The Mayor of Hedon, Mrs Ann Suggit, looks like having a busy day on April 8th as she will be judging an Easter Bonnet competition which is taking place at several different venues simultaneously! She will be travelling round the residential homes in the town - Holyrood House, Albemarle, Allendale, Hawthorne House and Merrywick – to view, admire and judge all the Easter bonnets made by the residents, and she tells me she is looking forward to it very much indeed!

“Bags2School” collection in Paull : Paull Primary School have distributed bags to all the houses in the village and ask you to fill them with anything listed on the accompanying leaflet – clothing (ladies’, men’s and children’s), bedding, curtains, soft toys, shoes, belts and handbags. The company pays for them by weight so the more the school can collect, the more money they will raise for the school. You can use any bags, it doesn’t have to be the bag they provided, and as many bags as you can. You are asked to deliver your filled bags to the school, which for anyone outside Paull who wishes to donate is on Main Street, opposite the Royal Oak pub, on Friday April 23rd between 8.45 a.m. and 9.30 a.m. So now you have more than two weeks to start emptying cupboards and drawers and get rid of all that stuff you’ve been meaning to throw out, and by doing so you can help the school at the same time.

Holy Week in Hedon and district : there will be a number of special events in the days immediately preceding Easter: the Lent Group meets for the final time on Monday 5th April in the Church Room then on Maundy Thursday the “Churches together” service is being hosted by St Augustine’s this year and will take place at 7.30pm. All are welcome. Good Friday Meditation in St Augustine’s will start at 10.00 a.m. and will be followed at 12 noon by the Walk of Witness : if you wish to join in, please meet at the Catholic Church. There will be a special service of “The Last Hour” from 2.00 p.m. at St. Andrew’s church, Paull.
For Easter Day’s Dawn Vigil please meet at Market Hill at 6.00 a.m., then back to the Methodist Church for breakfast. Easter Communion will take place at 9.30 a.m. at St Augustine’s and at 11.15 a.m. at St. Andrew’s (see below.)
