Past Events

December 15th: Carol Singing

Thanks to those of you who came along for carol singing.  There were about 18 of us altogether and we had a great evening, with no rain, snow, fog or ice – a first, I think!  Altogether we raised £200 for ONL, so thank you everyone for your support.

December 3rd: Dickens of a Christmas

On our bottle tombola we made an incredible total of £1075, from which only £25 has to be deducted (for the stall fee).  This was a fantastic achievement considering the weather!

A huge thank you to all who helped in any way – with donating bottles, setting up, manning the stall, providing cups of tea and mince pies and taking it all down afterwards.  It was good to see some new faces, it is always great to have new helpers!

Having a go…     

and winning!   

December 2/3rd: Christmas Tree Display

We enjoyed decorating a Christmas Tree in St Peter’s and St Paul’s Church once again.

Our theme (obviously) was Sierra Leone so the decorations included bunting in the flag colours, bits and pieces from Africa and baubles in shades of blue and green.


November 3rd :The Quiz

A wonderful evening—challenging, fast paced and very good food!

Thanks to Cat, Rob and Malcolm and all the cooks and servers and washers up and everyone else who helped in any way.

We made £961 for the link which has been sent to Newton to help build the new Community Centre.

Congratulations to the winners, the Mad Hatters with a magnificent score of 124.

Saturday 29th April –  Concert by Bozeat Windmill Singers

This concert was a great success – thanks to the Bozeat Singers for supporting us and to all of you who came.


Soup Lunch

Friday March 17th saw members of the Events Committee and friends of the ONL gathered together for the soup lunch. It was busy for the cooks and waitresses!

A special thank you to those who made soup and cakes, or contributed in other ways.  A big thank you to Anne and Rob who as well as helping allowed us to use their house. On an initial count we made £450.00, including the raffle!  This is a great result. I think everyone had a good time and enjoyed being able to socialise!

Our ‘customers’ seemed to appreciate our efforts…

A note to thank you for a delicious lunch shared together with old friends and new friends. You all worked very hard and I hope the collection boxes were overflowing!’ 

‘Congratulations and thanks for a very enjoyable lunchtime. The company at table and chat in the lounge was a joy.’
