Please help funding campaign for Horsington Church School

The school has recently launched a fundraising campaign to repair and decorate most of its classrooms. As a matter of fact, the school needs the help of the local and wider community to reach the budget that it needs to complete the works as the school’s budget simply can’t cover such costs at the moment. It is very easy to donate – it will only take a few minutes of your time – and any amount will represent a great contribution to the cause. Ultimately, the school would also accept donations of materials and labour if you are in the position of doing so! Some professional expertise is also needed of course, so if you are in the building trade and think you can help, please do get in touch.

To donate, please go on and enter the name of the school.

If you need further information, you can contact the school by email or by phone 01963370358

Horsington open has a record entry but needs 2 more players

The Horsington Open tees off next Saturday with a record 49 entries.

Mathematicians will quickly spot that this is a number not divisible by four.

So we need another 2 or 3 (preferably high handicap or beginners) to complete a foursome.

Don’t be shy, come on down!

It’s a great competition, lots of fun, and all are welcome.

And it’s in aid of 2 very good local causes.

Horsington Open blasts off on September 7th

The “Horsington Open” is back in September. This annual fun golf tournament in aid of local charities will be played at Henstridge Golf Club onSaturday September 7th 2019. Last year they raised over £1000 for St Margaret’s Hospice and Wincanton Live at Home. Can they do better this year?

The 9-hole competition is open to all comers. Ladies and non-handicappers are welcome. Entry is just £15 per player, including green fees. Individuals and teams of up to 4 can enter.

The prize (as befits an “Open”) is a claret jug, plus many other prizes generously donated by local businesses.

The field normally includes some really good golfers, some desperately bad golfers, many ladies and several beginners. The result is normally a cliff-hanger, and it’s always fun.

The easiest way to enter is to book on line via Facebook or the Horsington Blog . Pay on the day.

Or you can get an entry form  and more information from the Half Moon Horsington, or Henstridge Golf Club,  ALL WELCOME!

The competition is organised by Horsington’s David and Tricia Blake and Richard and Libby Gaunt
