Village Hall fundraising social events for 2024

Your Hall needs your support

 

The Village Hall team of Trustees & helpers are active in setting up events such as coffee mornings, quiz nights, socials at Christmas, garden talks, parties etc. and are always looking for new ideas to bring the village community together and have some fun.

We are very fortunate to have such an iconic place to hold these events, right in the centre of the village, which also acts as a polling station, a collection point for newspapers, a setting for street parties, Morris dancers and a venue for Parish Council meetings.

However, all this comes at a cost.  The Trustees ensure that there are funds set aside for long-term maintenance and day to day expenses – insurance, heating & lighting, water charges, fire checks & fixing things which wear out, all require ongoing income.  This only comes from hiring the Hall on a regular basis.

We need your help to support these efforts, both by coming to join in and/or helping out with organisation, cake baking, setting out tables & chairs, clearing away etc.

If you can help in any way or suggest any fundraising events, please contact Pat Roome on either 01572 821416 or pat.roome@btinternet.com

Please try to attend the Annual Parish Council Meeting on Wednesday, May 15th at 6:00 pm where the Trustees give a report on the previous year and will answer any questions – importantly it is your opportunity to say what you think.

The Trustees

The Ridlington community was saddened to hear of the passing of Bart Hellyer who has lived in Rutland for the past 40 years at Rowells Lodge. Bart became a paraplegic during his university years and used a wheelchair thereafter. In spite of his disability he lived a full and active life, dedicating much of his time to the local community; he served as the High Sheriff of Rutland from 2012 to 2013, gaining valuable insights into county life and since 2013, held the prestigious position of Deputy Lieutenant for Rutland.

Bart participated in most of our village events, including attending the late Queen Elizabeth’s Jubilee celebration street party and the King’s Coronation last year on May 7th 2023 – he can be seen on the photograph now hanging in the Village Hall.

In Ridlington, we shall all remember Bart with affection, admiration and respect – a remarkable man in honour of whom Oakham Town Council is flying the flag at half-mast.

A private family funeral service and burial in St Mary Magdalene and St. Andrews Church, Ridlington will take place on Friday, May 3rd at 11:00.

A Memorial Service will be held in Uppingham Parish Church on Monday, May 20th at 14:00 followed by refreshments at The Falcon in Uppingham.

Hello Everybody,

Just a note to firstly thank you so very sincerely for all your kindness and support during this very difficult time.

We now have a date for Bart’s Memorial Service. The Service will be held in Uppingham Parish Church on Monday, May 20th at 14:00 followed by refreshments at The Falcon in Uppingham.

We are holding a private family funeral service and burial in St Mary Magdalene and St. Andrews Church, Ridlington which will take place on Friday, May 3rd at 11:00.

Love Nicki
