The latest news from BPFMC:
BARN DRIVEWAY & CAR PARK UPGRADE
We are pleased to
announce that work on re-surfacing the driveway has now been completed,
with just the pedestrian footpath and speed bump markings to be painted.
Work on the car park has been delayed by recent rain but should be
completed in the next week or so. This will eliminate rainwater puddling
and mud patches.
BASTON ANNUAL VILLAGE FETE - SUNDAY 14th JUNE 2020
Don't forget to put this important date on your 2020 calendar!
BPFMC is once again staging the Annual Village Fete, on Sunday 14th June
It will feature our ever-popular dog show, cricket match, tea and cakes, beer
tent, and much more! This will be a great relaxing and entertaining day
out for the whole family. As always, any assistance that villagers can
provide either with the set-up or the event itself would be very much
appreciated. For entries to the dog show, and any other enquiries, please
contact Magi Lloyd on 560525. Magi would also like to put a call out for
cake donations for the tea tent - please help if you can. But most of all,
please do come along - this is YOUR village fete, so please help to keep
granted Gift Aid status by the HMRC in May of 2019 - and this should
help us to reclaim tax from donations.
Gift Aid is a UK tax
incentive that enables tax-effective giving by individuals to charities in
the United Kingdom and will allow the BPFMC to claim an extra 25p for
every £1.00 donation from every standard rate tax payer.
Don't forget that Baston Village Hall ('The Barn') is available for casual
or regular hire. It's an ideal venue for parties, indoor activities or
classes. Recently refurbished and decorated throughout, it's an attractive
building with excellent kitchen facilities and central heating. For
further details about the hire charges either visit BPFMC's website at
www.bpfmc.org, view them on the BPFMC noticeboard next to the main gate of
the playing fields, or contact the bookings clerk on 560525. Enquiries can
also be made via the Baston Village Hall facebook page.
Lastly, BPFMC is always keen to recruit new volunteers. If you are
interested in helping with the running of your village hall, playing
fields and leisure facility, please contact the Chairman via
firstname.lastname@example.org or on 561148.
