Week beginning April 12th 2004

Charity Rugby Matches – spectators welcome! : three Rugby league charity matches have been arranged to raise money for two major medical charities, Cystic Fibrosis and Multiple Sclerosis research. The first two games will take place in Preston at Destiny’s Fitness Health and Sports Club, Saltend and the final game at Hollis’s recreation ground, Hornsea, and are free entry with anyone welcome to come along and watch. The games will be between a local team of people from Preston and the surrounding villages which will be created exclusively for the charity events against Hull University R.L.F.C. (who last year came in at last minute and gave them a very competitive and good spirited game) and a local amateur rugby union side, Hornsea R.U.F.C. who also played the game last year in great spirit and brought with them a great crowd.
This event went ahead last year on the same lines but had only two games and even so they managed to raise, because of the generosity, donations and hard work of many local people, the magnificent sum of £1,040 for the local branch of the Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
Each of the coming games will provide a full day’s entertainment, as after the Rugby game has finished on each of the three dates, the teams and all spectators are invited and very welcome to return to the local public house which will entertain them that day with drinks, a raffle and a barbecue which is free, but donations are very welcome: this means that people need only give as much as they wish and can afford for both food and raffle tickets which should create a more relaxed atmosphere. The dates of all three matches are as follows, and I will print reminders for the second and third games nearer the dates :
Saturday April 17th: Preston vs. Hull University R.L.F.C. (after-game host - Blacksmiths Arms, Preston)
Saturday May 1st : Preston vs. Hornsea R.U.F.C. (after-game host - Cock & Bell, Preston)
Sunday May 16th : Hornsea R.U.F.C. vs. Preston (after-game host - Hollis Recreational, Hornsea). All matches have a 1.30 p.m. kick-off.

Guides looking for help : The Guides and Rangers of Holderness are in dire need of some help : they are having to move all their camping equipment from its present store and only have until the end of the month to find somewhere new. The equipment – mainly tents and cooking pots and pans – is owned jointly by all the units in the area and until losing the present store, was situated centrally so that all the units could use it when needed and ideally they would like to be able to continue to store it somewhere in Holderness. One suggestion that has been made is for them to keep it in a container (the type carried on lorries) and they can probably acquire one of these, but still need somewhere to put it. If you have anywhere the Guides can use, or know anyone who has, and would be willing to help please contact me on 01482 896712 and I will be able to put you in touch with the Guide leaders concerned.

Fort Paull phone number : I have been asked to point out that the contact phone number for Fort Paull is 01482 882655 and not as published elsewhere.

Police Band Concert in Hedon : a concert will be held in St. Augustine’s Church, Hedon, with the kind permission of the Vicar and members of the Church Council, on Friday, April 16th commencing at 7.30 p.m. In it the Humberside Police Band will be presenting their springtime programme at the invitation of the Mayor of Hedon, Councillor Mrs. Ann Suggit. Tickets are available from the Town Hall (telephone 01482 898428) Bamford Digital (896166) and Frames of Hedon (890214), at a cost of £5 each. Light refreshments will be served during the interval and all proceeds will be shared between the Mayor’s Charity and St. Augustine’s Church.

Paull Jumble Sale : there will be a Jumble Sale in Paull Village Hall on Saturday April 17th, with the doors opening at 2.00 p.m. These events are always popular so you are advised to come in good time, before the best bargains all go! There is limited on-street parking opposite the village hall – please do not park on the same side of the road as the village hall as the yellow lines ARE operative and the Police will be keeping an eye out and WILL issue parking tickets to anyone illegally parked! If there is no space left on the other side of the road there is a large car park past the lighthouse and beyond the playing field, accessible down the lane at the southern end of the village – ask anyone for directions when you get to Paull.

Paull – a date for your diary! The Green Ginger Morris Men are paying a welcome return visit to the village on Tuesday 27th April 2004 when they will be dancing at the Royal Oak, Main Street (just about opposite the village school) starting at 7.30 p.m. This promises to be an excellent evening and if you’ve never seen this most traditional of entertainment you really ought to come along and see what you’ve been missing – I guarantee a good time will be had by all!
