It's that time again!
Well – it hardly seems any time since last Christmas but all too soon it’ll be time to rummage in the loft, bring out the Santa hats, dust off the baubles and . . . start the dreaded Christmas shopping (cue scary music). So, what better place to start than the warm, friendly, hospitable atmosphere of Belstone Village Hall at the annual Craft Fair. With many of the regular exhibitors, a few new faces and the usual array of delicious cakes and ploughman’s lunches, it’s always an enjoyable day. So join us on Saturday 8th November between 10.30am-4.30pm.
Easy parking, opposite the hall, and all proceeds to hall funds
See Craft Fair pages for further information about the Craft Fair and this year’s exhibitors.
BELSTONE FLU CLINIC: Village Hall 2-4pm Tuesday 21st October.
OKEHAMPTON MEDICAL CENTRE FLU CLINICS
All the excitement of Ascot, Aintree and Epsom rolled into one comes to Belstone Village Hall at 7pm on Saturday 25 October when Belstone Cricket Club holds another of the popular Race Nights. Once again Peter Hammond will be rolling the dice and John Moppett will be moving the wooden horses up and down the board – much more fun than TV race nights. Tickets cost £5 for adults and £3 for kids under 11 years old – this includes a first drink for free and a hot supper. There will also be a licensed bar to keep punters sustained during the handicaps, hurdles, flat races and steeplechases. Tickets available from Peter Hammond on 01837 840234.

Josh's Update: £3,000
Almost there! Josh and his parents, Zoe & Gary, say a big thank you for the overwhelming local support, so far. This is a wonderful opportunity for Josh - an honour to be chosen but also, the experience of setting up and running these fundraising activities plus all the hours he spends doing jobs for others will give him skills to take forward into adulthood.
For those who still don't know, Josh has been selected to represent Devon in the World Scout Jamboree in Japan, 2015 but needs to raise £3,300 for the trip. He has been car washing, log stacking, bag packing, selling cakes, Bob-a-jobbing, leaf sweeping,and Race-Nighting as well as providing cream teas! He is still very grateful for any jobs offered. With just £300 to go the final target is within sight.
If you have any job - no matter how small - that you need him to do for you then contact him on 840434 or email email@example.com.
On 5th August Belstone Bellringers rang a half muffled quarter peal of call changes for about 40 minutes, to mark the centenery of the outbreak of WW1. This photo was taken by Chris Walpole at about 8.45pm, just after they had finished ringing. The single candle was then extinguished by Michael Ash. The plaque listing the four Belstone men who died during WW1 is in the central background.
This photo will eventually be added to Chris's "WW1 Excerpts". Follow the link at the top of the right sidebar to read the instalments as they appear.
