Hello again from your team at Broome Village Hall, the clocks have moved o Summer Time and Spring should really be showing itself. So, come on in from out in the garden, kick of your shoes, sit back and enjoy The Parishioner.

At time of writing I’m preparing for the Curry & Quiz Night, very pleased to say that it’s a complete sell out, so thanks to all for your support and sorry to those who were unable to get tickets. We really do have to put a limit on the ticket sales, purely for every one’s comfort.

So, what’s next?  HOT CROSS BUNS, Good Friday Morning 19 April. @ Broome Village Hall. Doors open at 8 am Regardless of the BREXIT “cock up” we will be keeping our prices the same as previous years, £2.50 for your Hot Cross Bun Breakfast with buns coming out of the oven all morning.  Take buns home @ 50p each. You won’t get them any fresher. Same Olde recipe that my father passed down to me, proper old-fashioned quality.

April will see our last Soup Lunch for the season but we will be back in the Autumn all ready to start again. To all our ladies that make up the team, I must say thank you and of course the cake makers. What a great team we have, you are priceless, ladies. Even old Pat Peck for putting the tables out each time. Thanks Pat.

Best wishes to you all,

Fred. 01986 895414.

The Border Villages Community Group coffee mornings are held on the 1st Wednesday of each month from 1030 – 1200 at Broome Village hall.
Our aim is to encourage residents, friends and neighbours to meet up once a month to enjoy the great community spirit, have a tea/coffee, a chat, a fun quiz and a raffle. All are welcome. Entrance is only 50p per person.
We also run a helpline if you need a lift to the doctors/hospital/local shop/collection of prescription and you have no other way of getting there, then we may be able to help. We have a small number of volunteers who, if available, might be able to give you a lift.
The helpline number is 07928 226603
The next coffee morning is on 3rd April 2019. The theme this month will be Easter, so let’s go a bit old fashioned and have an Easter bonnet competition. The best bonnet will get earn an Easter egg, we’ll have bingo and Easter eggs (various sizes) will be awarded for lines and a house.
The raffle will also include an Easter egg for a secret Easter type draw.
So, all you chocoholics will be in with a chance.
See you all then.

Bungay Marathon

The parish council has reached agreement with the Black Dog Running Club about controlling parking on the bend of Yarmouth Road at its western end on the day of the race. Hopefully this will mean residents can drive round the bend safely.

Please contact the clerk about any problems in Broome;- Paul Austin, The Nook, 57 Loddon Road, Ditchingham (01986) 892012.
