Events at Bethlehem Hall
MACMILLAN CURRY AND CAKE FUNDRAISER AT BETHLEHEM HALL
the choices for this year's Macmillan Curry and Cake Takeaway, which takes place on Friday 29th September.
We have stuck with the all time favourite of Chicken Tikka Masala, comforting, creamy and lightly spiced, and a vegetarian/vegan option of vegetable and chickpea Rogan Josh, a slightly spicier tomato based curry.
The mix and match side dishes are a dry-style potato, pea and onion curry, and the very popular Gujarati Cabbage, in a very light coconutty dressing.
All four of these go well together so have a few spoonfuls of each, add some rice, naan bread, popadoms, mango chutney, raita, whatever you fancy, and you have a proper feast for hardly any effort at all. (Top tip - make life even easier by using a pouch of microwave basmati rice).
The sweet treat, which will keep fine for a couple of days, is a zesty lemon sponge square.
We very much hope you will once again support the curry night, it raised over £300 last September, so fingers crossed it will be popular again. Orders need to be in by next Monday night at the latest.
Diolch yn fawr,
SEPTEMBER IN BETHLEHEM HALL
Our special Macmillan fundraiser quiz takes place on the 11th, with entry fees, raffle money and proceeds from food sales going to this amazing charity.
We really hope you will support us on the night by, firstly, turning up, and secondly by contributing something to the raffle and buying some snacks at half time. The raffle prizes don't need to be expensive, our previous "homespun" raffles have been perfect - some produce from the garden, a homemade cake, a jar of jam or chutney, half a dozen eggs, anything you can spare really, or a box of chocs, packet of biscuits, or even a bottle of something nice if you can stretch to it.
Bar Bethlehem will be open from 7pm and fully stocked. It promises to be a great evening, and will hopefully be an excellent fundraiser so we very much hope you'll come along.
And our September Social takes place later that week, on Friday 15th. It'll be a lovely opportunity to catch up with friends, neighbours, and everyone who loves the little hall as much as we do. The bar will be open from 6.30pm, there'll be some traditional pub games, cards, floor Jenga, free squash for the kids, so there will be a very warm welcome we promise! More details on this nearer the time but make a note of the date
Finally, another date for the diary is the Macmillan Curry and Cake Takeaway on Friday 29th. It was hugely popular last year, and very well supported, so we hope to repeat that success this year and do our bit for Macmillan again. Menu available nearer the time, but there will be curries, and cakes!
Diolch yn fawr am eich cefnogaeth, thank you very much for your support,

The date of the Pop-Up Pub has been changed to Friday, 20th October (it was originally scheduled for the week after that). This is to avoid holding an event in Gwynfe on the same date as an event in a nearby village. Sorry for any inconvenience.

CADOG FILM CLUB
We run two types of event, always in the evening and in the Llangadog Community Hall:
. on the first Saturday of every month from October to May we show a film that has broad appeal
. on the third Friday of every month from October to April we show something less well-known that has been highly rated - we call these evenings "Buffs' Nights".
The Saturday events are as much social as about the film. Everyone coming brings a plate of food to share and we have a buffet meal at tables, with wine and soft drinks available to buy. We sit and chat for an hour or so before clearing everything away and enjoying the film.
On Fridays we meet for half an hour or so before the film for drinks and nibbles.
The easiest way to join is to come to a Friday or Saturday event and sign up at the door. Membership is £5 per season per person (there is a minimum age limit for paid-up members of 16).
TICKETS cost £5 per person per film, payable at the door.
NON-MEMBERS are welcome, maybe visitors or friends of members who would like to see the show, or under 16s if the film is legal for them to see. Non-members' tickets are £6.
OTHERWISE you can contact the Club's Secretary by e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org
