Abbots Leigh Spring Clean NEW DATE

Starts: 25 March 2018 10:00
Ends: 25 March 2018 12:00

Location: Village Hall


Come & join us for this sociable and worthwhile annual Sunday morning event when teams of volunteers armed with black sacks and litter-pickers work their way back from the far ends of the parish to clean up verges & hedgerows.  Afterwards everyone is invited back to West Barns at Home Farm for a well earned lunch of soup, sandwiches and a drink.

Congregate outside the Village Hall at 10.00am, with your boots and gloves.  Children are welcome.  We will provide high visibility vests, rubbish bags and litter pickers (and gloves for those that do not have them).  Then off you go in pairs to bag a haul: it can get very competitive!  It's a great way for newcomers to the village to get involved.    It is amazing how much can be collected in such a short time into such a large pile outside the phone box!

If you think that you can come, please email Simon Talbot-Ponsonby or call him on 01275 375250, so that we can estimate numbers for lunch.

Bonfire Night

Starts: 05 November 2018 18:00
Ends: 05 November 2018 20:00

Location: Old School Field

Beer, cider, food, bonfire and fireworks!

Chis Allcock will once again be building the bonfire.  There is quite an art in getting the fire to burn spectacularly and successfully and without too much smoke.  We appreciate the many offers to take your garden rubbish to put on the fire, but sadly we can not take it all.

Please do not leave material for the bonfire in the School Field or in front of the locked gate.  We always have enough material and too big a bonfire can become a safety issue.  Please put your green waste in your green bins or take it to the recycling centre in Portishead.
