JUNIOR MINSTEAD’S 40TH ANNUAL PANTOMIME

Many, many congratulations are due to everyone involved in this year’s stunning 40th Production, Charlie and the Confectionery Factory!

The amazing mix of Wonka-wizardry with Minstead characters and a bit of spicy India accompanied by the fantastic One Confection band resulted in one of the most memorable Junior Minstead pantomimes yet!

Keep an eye on the village website for photos and further information.

All parents of children in the Village interested in Junior Minstead are welcome to attend the AGM at 8pm on Wednesday 26th April in the Village Hall Green Room.

ANNUAL LITTER PICK SAT 1ST APRIL 

A further request for support for the Annual Minstead Litter pick to clear the rubbish deposited by others along our roads and lanes!

If you would like to take part please inform Helen Bennett on 8081 2358 or by Email at helen.bennett160@yahoo.com.  She will work out who does what.

The main effort will be from 10am to 12 noon on Saturday 1st April but if you would prefer another time that will be fine.  Bags and litter pickers will be available outside the shop on the day or from Helen.
