The Stinchcombe Safari Supper was held last night and Storm Dennis held off just enough for the night to be a unconditional and unqualified success!
Despite it being held on Saint Valentine’s Night, who we all know is the patron Saint of Epilepsy, around 90 people crowded into the aisles of Saint Cyrs for starters and puds with the mains being served by hosts scattered around the village.
My wife served a recipe that was used for the W.I. Safari Supper in Wanborough, (near Swindon) some 30 / 35 years ago! I guess if it was good enough then it was good enough now!
The Chairman of The Friends of St Cys, Russell Legg gave a good welcome speech explaining the main reason for the evening event as being part of the fundraising for the “Open 4 All” project for the church to provide disabled access, toilet and kitchen towards which the friends have already promised £10,000 towards.
I must say, that the last night event showed just what “Village Event” can be like with everyone mixing and talking and enjoying themselves and those that did not come or support at all this or other “Village Event” do miss out on why we live in a small community.

Stinchcombe Hill SSSI Needs You
Large parts of Stinchcombe Hill are designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) because the unimproved limestone grassland on the slopes is an important habitat, with some rare flora and fauna. The Conservation Volunteers, led by Chris Wiltshire, cut back the encroaching scrub, treat the stumps to prevent regrowth and remove invasive species such as cotoneaster. We work Wednesday mornings from October to March, meeting in the public car park (not the one by the golf club) at 9.30 am. From time to time there is a weekend work party.
New or occasional volunteers are always welcome. It’s a wonderful way of getting to know the hill’s hidden places and learning more about wildlife. Tools are provided and no previous experience is necessary. Sturdy footwear and work gloves are essential. Just turn up or contact Kath ( email@example.com ) if you would like more information.
The Annual General Meeting for Stinchcombe Village Hall will be held in the Committee Room at 7.30am on Tuesday 19 November 2019.
The village hall is an important asset for the village and the village hall committee continue to maintain it and run it so it is a viable operation. A piece of land has been acquired behind the hall to enable the committee to extend the car park, as the present car park is too small for the present usage.
Please come along and support us, it is your Village Hall and we are always happy to listen to suggestions for its use.
