THE PARISH COUNCIL WISHES EVERYONE A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR (WHATEVER IT BRINGS!)

ROYAL BRITISH LEGION 
Thank you to everyone for their contribution to the British Legion Poppy appeal collection in Minstead, Stoney Cross and Emery Down this year. We raised a total of £ 959.43p through static and church collections and what with private donations from those living in the parish of over four hundred pounds for our silent soldier, in this centenary year the village has made a valuable contribution to the work of the British Legion – Thank you 
Helen Bennett 
Local Poppy Appeal Organiser

(and many thanks to Helen from all of us for organising this year’s appeal for Minstead!)

CAROLS ON THE GREEN

Don’t forget there will be Carols on the Green outside the Trusty from 6pm on Saturday 22nd December.  We are expecting Father Christmas to make an appearance on his sleigh at about 6.30pm to give out presents to the well behaved.

(parents please leave with the Trusty beforehand, value below £5).

This will be followed by a show by the world famous Mummers of Minstead led by Nick Mellersh.

Curious?

MINSTEAD PLAYERS – DON’T MISS THE NEXT PRODUCTION!

“Don’t Get Your Vicars in a Twist” is a classic over-the-top British farce, with bishops & actress, a par-boiled actor & rotting-drunk has-beens, impecunious parishioners lusting after their new female vicar, an (easy) lay-reader and a camped-up impresario putting on a Murderous Mystery Weekend for profit in the vicarage. With guaranteed twisting-of-knickers and dropping-of-trousers, what could the rude & prude punters deduce about village life and The Great Bard?

Our production features real trained farmers, doctors & nurses, pilots & soldiers and even vicars, (but no trained actors) so please support Minstead Players at the Village Hall on Friday 18th or Saturday 19th January at 7:30pm, tickets from The Trusty Servant make a great stocking-stuffer, or on the door.
