Any items for inclusion in these publications, be they adverts, notice of forthcoming events or reports on a groups activities, should be communicated to the Newsletter Editor, Ian Ross 01933 440560, e.mail firstname.lastname@example.org atleast a month before publication.
More current news will now be published on this page on the web-site. Items for inclusion should be communicated to the site administrators by calling Ian Ross or e.mailing email@example.com

The Stag's Head
For the last 10 years Gerry & Bob have run regular quiz nights raising money primarily in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. A recent donation of £1304 brings the total raised to nearly £ 60,000. That is a magnificent achievement deserving of village participation not just on quiz nights but at other times. The sight of boarded up village pubs is sad indeed thus only with adequate support can the same thing be avoided in Gt.Doddington.
