BETHLEHEM HALL EVENTS

Following the lovely evening at the hall some weeks ago, where many of her friends and neighbours gathered to take a close look at Julie Brenan's paintings and prints, we have now set a date for selling much of that work, through a Silent Auction system.

It will be held on the evening of Friday October 7th at the hall, doors open at 6.30pm, with the auction taking place from 7-8 pm.

The proceeds from the sale will be donated to three charities which Julie supported - Breast Cancer Care, Battersea Dogs Home, and our little hall itself.

We very much hope you'll come along even if you aren't intending to purchase any of the work, but just to have a final look at what she dedicated many decades to achieving, and to enjoy a catch-up with friends and neighbours. Bar Bethlehem will be open from 6.30, so drop in for a glass of wine and a chat.

A reminder that the first monthly quiz of the autumn will take place on Monday October 10th, a 7.30pm start. As it's been a long time since our last indoor quiz, Andy and Alan have kindly offered to kick things off again by asking the questions, so it should be a lot of fun, but with a few challenges along the way.

And we are still taking orders for the Macmillan Curry and Cake Takeaway on Friday September 30th, 5.30-6.30pm. The order book will close next Sunday, so make sure you get in touch over the coming days.

We hope you support Macmillan again this year, it goes without saying that charities are very much in need of anything we can pass on to them in these extremely difficult times.

BETHLEHEM HALL CURRY FOR MACMILLAN

30th September 2022

As previously mentioned, in the absence of the annual Macmillan Coffee Morning, we thought we could try to plug the gap this year by holding a Curry and Cake Takeaway, along the lines of both our previous Curry night takeaways and the special one we held as a fundraiser for the DEC Ukrainian Refugees fund back in March.

Our curry night takeaways have always proved popular, with the Ukraine fundraiser breaking all records for meals flying out of the Bethlehem kitchen, so we very much hope you will support this one, in aid of such an amazing charity.

It takes place on Friday September 30th, which happily is also the official Macmillan Coffee Morning date, and also, fittingly, the date of my wonderful late Auntie Val's birthday, whose battle with cancer was made considerably more bearable thanks to Macmillan.

Meals can be collected anytime from 5.50 to 6.30pm, from the side entrance of the hall as before. Although it's a few weeks away yet, I'm attaching the menu, and as always, the sooner the orders come in, the better prepared we can be.

We've gone for the popular choices from previous curry nights, with Chicken Tikka Masala and an Aubergine, Chickpea and Red Pepper Rogan Josh as main course curries, and a potato, pea and onion curry, and the very popular Gujarati cabbage as side dishes.

The curries and sides are easy heat and eat meals, just heat them through either in their containers in a microwave, or decant into a pan and heat on the hob.

All the curries are freshly made, using quality ingredients, nothing is bought in ready made.

The cake will be rich chocolate and raspberry brownies, eat them as they are, or warm through and serve with a scoop of ice cream.

The raspberries are very kindly being donated by hall supporter and management team member Chris Brown, who has an abundance this year (that's probably an understatement!), so diolch yn fawr iawn Chris, your generosity will help us keep our costs down.

Get in touch to order, or for more details.

Thank you so much for your support,
Diolch o galon,
Nia and team.

Magician Returns to Gwynfe

By popular request, on Saturday, 8th October at 6:30 Gwynfe Community Hall welcomes back magician Ian Keable.  In the first half of his show, Ian talks in a humorous way about 18th century hoaxes, illustrated with magic tricks.  Following an interval, the second half of the show is pure magic!  Those of you who came to Ian's previous shows will remember what a fun and entertaining showman he is.  

Tickets at £10 full price or £8 for concessions can be reserved via e-mail at gwynfe_community_hall@yahoo.co.uk or by phoning 01550-740462.  A ham/cheese ploughman's supper is available beforehand at 6 pm for £4; please order in advance when reserving your ticket.  As usual, the bar will be open all evening and there will be a raffle.  We look forward to seeing you there.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

On Saturday, 29th October from 10:00 until 14:00 there will be an event in Gwynfe Community Hall to raise funds for Macmillan.  Come along for a cup of coffee, a cup of tea, a delicious slice of cake and a catch-up with neighbours.  More details in a future e-newsletter - but make a note in your diaries now. 

Phone Box

There has been some discussion about moving the defibrillator from the entrance hallway of the Community Hall to the newly decorated phone box. It is felt that it would be more visible there, particularly to any visitors in the village.  We would welcome your thoughts about this - or indeed any other ideas for how our 'heritage phone box' could be better used.  Thank you.

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 – cadogfilmclub@aol.com
