Coffee Morning  on Saturday June 1st 10.30 until 12.00am
A 25 year Celebratory Coffee Morning for the Kennel Field, In the Village Institute Entry £3
Yes, it is 25 years since a group of residents acquired the Kennel Field for the village for “the quiet enjoyment of wildlife and landscape”.
Initially it was self-funding through agri-environment schemes but those funds have dried up and now this Charitable Trust is dependent upon its 100 Club. The June draw will be held at the coffee morning. So please come along, there will be stalls for plants, books and cakes for which contributions will be gratefully received.
To join the 100 Club or renew your membership please contact Lynda Denny.

Pickle Ball
Pickle Ball is a form of indoor tennis and seems to be growing in popularity. It is played with a wooden bat known as a paddle and a plastic ball with holes.
Following a recent demonstration in the Institute from an enthusiastic team from Hawes, the management committee decided to offer this opportunity to play here in Thornton Rust. Pickle Ball is a game suitable for all ages and abilities. If you would like to learn more about Pickle Ball, please contact Susan Freer on 01969 663980 or at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
