Attention all golfers (and aspirant golfers) at all levels. Put Monday November 11th in your diary. It’s the date of the first ever HORSINGTON OPEN
golf tournament, to be played at Henstridge Golf Club.
The tournament is a 9-hole 4-ball competition.
As the title implies, it is open to all, including ladies and non handicappers. The entry fee is £12 per player and the surplus will be donated to the Church roof fund.
Tee off is from 11am. The prize giving will be at the Half Moon at 6.30 when the coveted Claret Jug trophy will be awarded to the winner. There will be plenty of other prizes.
There will also be a raffle in aid of the church roof fund.
There will be full catering facilities at the club.
If you would like to sponsor a golf prize or donate a raffle prize please contact Richard Gaunt, who is organising the competition with Andrew Tarling and Phil Bennett.
Finally, a reminder about golf etiquette. Our colleagues at Bloggovision have collected a few examples of the kind of behaviour we do NOT expect to see!

Reports are filtering in that Music Nights at the Half Moon are getting lively. And now someone has sent BloggoVision a video which they assure us was filmed in the Half Moon. We don’t believe it -the flat hat is a giveaway! The decor looks different. And they are far too lively. But enjoy anyway.
Sales of the video of the Jubilee street party have raised over £480 for the church roof fund. There are plenty more copies for sale at £10 from the Half Moon.
Make sure you have a record of this unique event, as there unlikely to be another celebration like this in the lifetime of any of the people present.
Virtually everyone who attended is featured in one way or another, along with the team of volunteers who put the event together.
The video has been made to a high professional standard, and has two bonus tracks – the Horsington Bellringers, and original archive footage of the Coronation in 1953.
The blog has learnt that the DVD will not work in some players. The manufacturers have put their hands up and owned up to a technical fault, and replaced the lot. If your copy does not work, pick up a replacement from the Half Moon.
The Bellringers of Horsington Parish Church got the Jubilee off to a flying start with a peal at noon on Sunday 3 June – the day of the Horsington street party and the Thames pageant.
The video of the Horsington event is now well in hand . The editing process is complicated and difficult decisions have to be made. Unfortunately the bellringers have ended up on the cutting room floor in the Street Party video, but their consolation prize is a feature film of their own on BloggoVision.
Enjoy the delicate (but physical) art of change ringing.
