Pop up Cafe at Bethlehem Hall this weekend

Thank you to everyone who came along to the hall Wednesday evening to support the Christmas Fair. There was a lovely atmosphere with everyone enjoying the local goods on offer, as well as the mulled wine! The raffle and produce stand were popular, and those alone raised over a hundred pounds for the Hall funds so diolch yn fawr/many thanks!

I expect most people are beginning to receive Christmas cards through the post by now. Linda Court is collecting used stamps in aid of medical detection dogs, so it would be really helpful if you could save yours to pass on to her. You can either drop them with Linda at Tŷ Ni, or if it's easier, leave them in the hall which is open today (Saturday 16th) and tomorrow (Sunday 17th) from 10-2 and Monday and Tuesday 10-4. Tuesday 19th is the last day that the hall will be open for stamping.

As well as the card stamping in the hall today and Sunday,10-2, the café will be open from midday serving winter warming lunches. On the menu this weekend is a choice of traditional Cawl, roasted vegetable soup (v), or creamy leek and potato soup (v), all served with rolls, butter and a tasty mature cheddar. There will also be a selection of freshly made sandwiches available, as well as tea, coffee, beer, wine, cider and soft drinks.

Many thanks to those people who have given up their time to date to cover the stamping rota. It is much very much appreciated. Particular thanks to Pam (and Stanley) for opening and closing the hall and for being keeper of the cash box!

 

 

Parti Nadolig Plant Bethlehem

Bethlehem Children's Christmas Party

 

 

Saturday 16 December, 5pm

There will be ...

  • Christmas carol singing up the Street
  • Fun Christmassy games
  • A bit of music and groovy dancing
  • Ho, ho, ho! A visit from Father Christmas
  • Christmas costumes encouraged - prizes for the best dressed!
  • Food and drink. All welcome to join in.

RSVP - Please can you let us know by Sat 9 Dec the names and ages of children coming so that we know the numbers for food and can buy appropriate presents.

Any questions, ask Hannah, Flora or Jane.


 

On Monday 4th December through to Tuesday 19th December, the hall will be opening its doors on a daily basis from 10 - 4 Monday to Friday and 10 -2 on Saturdays and Sundays so that people can come and get their envelopes/cards stamped with the special Bethlehem stamp. Monday - Friday there will be light refreshments available but on Saturdays and Sundays, the Bethlehem pop-up cafe will be popping up serving seasonal soup, sandwiches and cakes so pop in and see us.

Monday 11th December is the monthly quiz  (POSTPONED until the 18th December due to bad weather) and being December it will have a festive feel. Like last year there will be mulled wine for all, and if people would like to bring snacks to share at half time then that would be great. Christmas jumpers and silly headgear are positively encouraged! Arrive from seven for a 7.30 start, bring a few friends to form a team, or just turn up and join with others. Bring a bottle and snacks. It only costs £1, so come on over to the warm and welcoming hall and enjoy an evening out.

The traditional event of Carols round the Bethlehem Christmas tree will be taking place on Friday 22nd December at 6.30pm. Hopefully, the weather will be kind so that the singing can take place round the tree, but if the weather is poor, then we will be in the hall.

Mulled wine and mince pies will on offer so do come along and join us.

Bethlehem Hall Old School Supper Evenings

Every month throughout the winter we will be running our Old School Supper Club.

We promise.... all the food is made by us, nothing bought in, nothing processed, all fresh, nothing too cheffy with everything piled up in a stack and disguised with edible flowers! Just proper "Old School", tasty food. The cost is £10 per person.

Food will be served at 7.30pm, so arrive from 7.00pm onwards. The bar will be open, serving wines to compliment the food, as well as a selection of other wines, beers, lager, cider and soft drinks.

If anyone wants to know more about the suppers, or if you'd like to reserve a place, phone Nia on 01550 777254, or contact Nia or Sue through the Facebook page or through email.
