MARCH 2012 News Update

The March News Update is now available to read in PDF format.



Plans for a packed weekend of activities in Halstead to help celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee (QDJ) weekend are now full steam ahead.

A series of successful fundraising events and activities before Christmas have ensured that all the events may proceed as planned.

The Committee would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who supported this activity.

A newsletter update, including a full itinerary for the QDJ weekend, will be distributed to all residents in Halstead and Badgers Mount very soon.

Royal Scarecrow building workshop & bunting challenge
In the meantime, some of the more imminent dates for your diary include a Royal Scarecrow building workshop at 10am on Sunday 11th March in the village hall. As per previous communications, we’re hoping that locals will create and display outside their homes Royal-themed scarecrows. These will be displayed in the run up to the QDJ weekend and prizes will be awarded for the most Regal! We’re also planning a Scarecrow Parade as part of the Family Fun Day on Monday 4th June.

The March workshop will be a fun and informal event designed to help get the creative juices flowing, and to provide some ‘structural’ hints and tips. It will be hosted by Dot Wooder and other members of the Halstead Players, who have already immortalised Henry VIII (in scarecrow form at least…). Henry will be joined on the day by Prince Charles in a Norfolk outfit. Everybody is welcome to attend this free workshop – young and old alike.

Also at the workshop, the WI will be showcasing their handy work so far on their Royal ‘bunting challenge’. They are attempting to break the record for the longest bunting in the World (as documented in the Guinness Book of Records) by as much as a quarter of a mile – aiming for 2 miles’ worth of continuous bunting!

Workshop attendees will have the opportunity to put their mark on this historic piece of handy work. Sewing machines and tape will be provided!

For more information on the workshop and / or to confirm attendance, please contact Dot Wooder on
01959 532 355.

Table Top Sale
A fundraiser will take place on Sunday 1st April in the form of a Table Top Sale. This will be held in the village hall at 2pm. It’s the perfect excuse for a clear-out of all those unwanted items, and a chance to make some money in the process. Tables will be sold in advance at 10 each. Refreshments will also be sold and the event will attract a 50p entry fee on the door. All proceeds from the table sales, refreshments and entry fee will go to the QDJ funds.

If you are interested in taking a table at the event, please contact Sheila Bent on 01959 532 342.

Road Stewards
Meanwhile, the QDJ Committee is calling for volunteers to act as Road Stewards in the run up to the QDJ weekend. We want to ensure that as many people as possible enjoy the planned festivities and Road Stewards will play a key role in this regard. Each Steward will be responsible for delivering newsletter updates to their particular road, in addition to finding out potential attendee numbers for certain events. They will also act as an additional source of information with regards to where to purchase tickets etc.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jean Peel on 01959 533 180.

Time capsule
As mentioned in our first newsletter, the Committee is keen to put together a village memorial to mark this historic event. It was agreed that a time capsule would be buried in the Church grounds. This will contain a booklet and photographs, designed to provide a snapshot of village life in 2012. A plaque will be placed in the Church stating that the time capsule should be dug up in 25 years’ time.

The information for the booklet is currently being gathered and we would welcome any comments from local residents with regards to ‘life in the village in 2012’. Please contact Jean Peel with any contributions you would like to make.

Finally, watch out for your copy of the next newsletter update, which will be landing on your doormat very soon. Updates will also be included on the Parish website, together with both the Halstead and Badgers Mount village websites.
