The Avon Public House

Following a long process, the Avon Dassett Community Benefit Society has appointed Steve Forrest as the new tenant for The Avon Public House in Avon Dassett. The pub is expected to open in the near future  subject to the installation of new equipment, minor refurbishments, cleaning and the delivery of stock and supplies. The opening date will be published when it becomes more certain.

A spokesperson for the Community Benefit Society noted, ‘Now that The Avon has been saved for the village it is hoped that the community will pull together to once again make The Avon the centre of the community.’

Macmillan Coffee Morning

The Vintage coffee cups came out again for another successful coffee morning.
Many Thanks to all those who supported this event, from tidying the hall, supplying prizes, helping on the day, baking cakes, sending donations, to coming on the day to drink coffee & eat cake.
Together we raised £316.54 towards the “Biggest Coffee Morning” fundraiser and the wonderful work done by Macmillan Cancer Support.
Congratulations to John Kegg who correctly guessed the Bear’s name as “Sandy”, winning himself the bear and the Spa Toiletries Hamper.  Congratulations also to his wife, Candy, who won the Coffee Hamper and Book by choosing the winning cup in the Macmillan’s “Double Shot” game.
Thank you all
Deb Watts.
