Recent news

Sleeping with wild elephants

Dilys being thanked by Richard for her wonderfully illustrated talk on her recent camping trip to Botswana, “Sleeping with wild elephants” . This was the first in our programme of lectures for autumn and winter in the Village Hall.

Bernice Wickins

Port Navas is mourning the loss of one its most committed community members. Bernice Wickens died in St Julia’s Hospice on the evening of Friday September 8th.

Bernice was involved in all aspects of village life – from the maintenance of Pope’s Garden to the management of the Village Hall. She and her husband Roger could always be counted on to help, whatever the cause. She will be much missed and our thoughts are with Roger.

Summer BBQ – August 19th

Many thanks to you all for making the barbecue so successful again. Great food, good atmosphere and some new faces. Tiffa, please pass on thanks to Jinny who helped so much.

I have just over £300 profit for the food takings. Richard will sort out the bar takings very soon. So, financially successful as well.

Best Wishes, Margaret
