Organizers of a West Norfolk village hall Christmas fair said the comeback event was a chance to help businesses in the village as well as themselves.

Around £ 10,000 a year is needed to maintain the Ripper Memorial Hall in Docking.

And the building was teeming with merchants and buyers for its popular seasonal fundraiser on Saturday.

Lesley Darcy pyrographer intrigued customers with her designs (53521870)

“We put it in place to raise funds to help run the hall,” said Party Hall President Matthew Todd. “The money to run the hall has been very tight.”

“We went eighteen months without being able to organize any events,” said Treasurer Beverley Masters, ticking off some of the costs to be covered each year, such as heating, wear and tear and auditing.

But the village town hall committee saw the event as more than just fundraising. “It was also a chance to help local small businesses as well as to help us,” Ms. Masters added.

It also had a wider appeal than just fundraising. In addition to the usual popular seasonal stalls, Hillside Animal Sanctuary raised funds for the 4,500 animals they care for and Docking Boy Scouts took their chance to challenge visitors with several simple fundraising competitions.

The 1st Docking Brownies offered a quick way to ‘bake cookies’ by putting all the ingredients in a pretty jar, except for an egg and butter, along with the recipe.

Additionally, a Brownie, Matilda Clarkson from Ringstead, was there to raise money for the Hedgehog Hotel charity in Terrington St Clements, which takes care of one of the country’s most endangered animals.

Mathilde has never seen more than two, the second she found caught in a rat trap with a broken leg.

She said: “I gave him a bowl for water and another for food, nursed him and then gave him to Lynn’s RSPCA.”

But for Christmas shoppers there was also a wide variety of attractive gifts.

Samples included Lesley Darcy, of Poppakins, of Great Bircham offering his skills as a pyrographer. Using wood and materials salvaged from her own garden, she burned greetings and messages onto small wooden shapes.

They can be used as gift tags, as an alternative to Christmas and birthday cards, or simple Christmas tree decorations. Their beauty lay in the fact that they would not be cast on New Years but kept as a memento of a special event.

Lynn Hart, known as Crafty Lynn, of Clenchwarton, produced rows of quick-selling gnomes. “They are very popular right now,” she said.

Gnome lovers place them on their Christmas trees, set them up on mantle shelves, or store them in every corner of their rooms. For the children, she offered crochet teddy bears.

Samantha Campey, from Bircham, presented puzzles of her own artwork or photographs. Each puzzle was a scene set somewhere in North Norfolk.

All in all, this turned out to be a larger Christmas fair than usual. Business was good for the merchants while the town hall funds were well replenished.

Gorefield Community Hall and Sports Pavilion is expected to hold its official reopening after receiving contributions from a special fund set up by the county council for an extension.

The Hall received £ 198,000 in capital funding from Cambridgeshire County Council, which with £ 60,000 the Hall committee had already secured, this allowed for the extension of the pavilion allowing for additional community functions and reservations as well as the expansion of the youth club.

The facility was first opened in 2013 and has since been a popular and well-used space. Due to its success, expansion plans have been drawn up so that the center can offer additional and flexible space.

The Gorefield Community Hall has undergone major expansion. (53191919)

Throughout 2020, the Gorefield Community Hall Project was one of 35 community projects across the county that received funding from the County Council Communities Capital Fund. The £ 5million fund has supported a range of projects that globally aim to improve health, well-being and social opportunities in their communities.

Work on Gorefield Hall began in October 2020 and although it has been underway since August, it is expected to host a special event to officially mark the completion of the work this month. Community members from the County Council, Social Mobility and Inclusion Committee visited the building last month as part of their visit to Fenland.

Councilor Tom Sanderson, Chairman of Cambridgeshire County Council’s Communities, Social Mobility and Inclusion Committee, said: “It has been wonderful to be able to help the residents of Gorefield expand the space they need to deliver community projects that deliver significant benefits for all. generations and abilities.

MP Steve Barclay attended a Macmillan Coffee Morning at the Gorefield Community Center earlier this month.

“I am delighted that the committee has approved grants for such a vital and deserving program. I hope the newly expanded center will make a huge difference to its users and the entire Gorefield community and surrounding villages.

“Overall, the Community Investment Fund has been incredibly successful, having funded numerous community projects across the county.”

The memory of a young man from Stony Brook inspired a lacrosse jamboree that will raise money for scholarships for student-athletes at Ward Melville High School.

Joseph “JoJo” LaRosa

Joseph “JoJo” LaRosa graduated from WMHS in 2017 and left an impressive athletic legacy. Over the next few years after high school, he taught courage to the community. Last August, LaRosa died of desmoplastic round cell carcinoma after a battle with the form of cancer that began shortly after graduating from WMHS.

David Ratner, whose son Dylan has been friends with LaRosa since he started elementary school, is part of a five-person committee that is hosting the JoJo Strong Jamboree on Saturday, November 27 at the high school. Proceeds from the fundraising lacrosse tournament will go to the Joseph “JoJo” LaRosa Memorial Scholarship Foundation at WMHS. The goal is to help college athletes for years to come, according to Ratner.

Lacrosse was chosen for benefit as LaRosa was part of the 2017 State Champion Lacrosse team at WMHS. The day will feature a tournament and clinic for young athletes as well as Ward Melville alumni competing against teams from Adelphi University and Smithtown. The day will also feature an “Old Skool” Men’s Tournament and Fastest Shooting Competition.

Ratner said the relationship he, his wife Julie and son had with LaRosa and with his mother Gina Mastrantoni could be described as unbreakable since the two moved to Family Corner.

“He’s basically lived in my house for the past 17 years, so he was almost like my adopted son,” Ratner said.

For a while, Ratner’s son played lacrosse with LaRosa, until Dylan Ratner moved on to tennis. The boys also played lacrosse in the alley and in the family street.

“The neighborhood was a field of dreams for these children,” said the father. “They were running and playing in the dark, and it was like the good old days.”

In addition to lacrosse, LaRosa was a kicker for Patriots football after playing football for years. Ratner described LaRosa as a great sportsman.

“It was really a big role for him, and it really showed his leadership character,” Ratner said. “You can win or lose a game depending on your single kick and nothing has knocked it down – nothing would bother him. “

Mastrantoni said his son’s first word was “bullet”.

“He tried every sport there was to try,” the mother said, adding that in addition to lacrosse, soccer and soccer, there was swimming and wrestling.

She said that after starting his treatment he took up golf and it became her passion.

“You name the sport he tried,” she said. “This kid was passionate about sports and competition, and while he would love to win, he was also a good athlete. He was very kind and respectful. The best kind of kid and a very good, very caring son.

After graduating from Ward Melville in 2017, LaRosa headed to Adelphi University on a scholarship. Ratner said that during the Christmas break that year, the student experienced stomach pain and went to Stony Brook University Hospital. It was determined that he had a certain type of cancer, although it was not possible to determine which type at the time. After various tests between the Mayo Clinic and Memorial Sloan Kettering in Manhattan, he was diagnosed with the fatal desmoplastic round cell carcinoma.

Prior to his death, LaRosa underwent surgery that reportedly involved a full abdominal transplant as a last hope. However, he did not survive the operation.

Ratner said LaRosa has always remained positive and spoke about her future plans, including one day getting married and starting a family.

“He was ready to get his life back,” Ratner said.

“He didn’t entertain sadness because he saw it as negativity.”

Gina Mastrantoni

His mother said he also considered seeking treatment and becoming a medical assistant or nurse practitioner.

“He didn’t harbor sadness because he saw it as negativity,” she said.

The mother added that he had hoped to go to Adelphi for another semester and then go to James Madison to be on his football team as a kicker.

This will be the first lacrosse tournament the committee hopes to make an annual event to help students, according to Ratner. He said there have been fundraisers in the past to support LaRosa and her family during her battle, and the support from the community as well as from across Long Island was enormous.

Mastrantoni said the tournament is exciting and that she plans to attend. She was touched by the support of her family and friends as well as the community.

“It’s amazing how many people he has touched over the past 22 years,” the mother said.

As a member of the traveling lacrosse team, LaRosa’s life has also touched many in rival school districts, including Smithtown, and former members of the town’s traveling team will be in attendance for the tournament for to play.

“They come out to show their solidarity,” Ratner said.

He added that members of the school district and the Three Village board of directors were helpful in making the event happen. Kevin Finnerty, the school district’s executive director of health, physical education, recreation and athletics, said his heart broke for the family and friends of the former student-athlete when he learned of LaRosa’s death a few months ago. The decision to hold the event at the school, he said, was an easy one.

“JoJo was an amazing student-athlete with a heart of gold and a great outlook on life,” said Finnerty. “As his family would say, he was the bravest warrior. During JoJo’s battle with cancer, he inspired so many of his peers, family and community with his strength, resilience and positive attitude.

Finnerty said the organizers put a lot of work and effort into the event.

“I know this will be a great success and a great way to rally our community to remember and honor JoJo,” he said.

After the games on November 27, an awards ceremony will take place at The Bench in
Stony stream.

Submitted for publication by Joanne Brannan of The George Community

Plans to refurbish and reopen a 17th century pub in the village of Bethersden received matching funding of £ 250,000 from the government’s new Community Property Fund.

The George Community group was formed to save The George, in the heart of Bethersden near Tenterden, which recently closed after the longtime tenant gave up the lease at the end of 2020, the first time in its history that the pub has closed for any length of time.

Residents and loyal customers were planning on keeping the working-class area as the village’s lifeblood when they realized it had been put up for sale and would not reopen. Their aim was to run it as a community pub, a formula which proved to be very effective for other UK pubs at risk.

Although still a relatively new concept, according to CAMRA there are around 150 community owned pubs in the UK, and so far these pubs have one of the best business survival rates. worldwide with only one UK registered closure.

With the government’s commitment, the group has now set itself the task of raising at least an equivalent amount in order to buy and reopen the pub. A community sharing offer should be launched in a few weeks, and the results of new grant applications are also expected.

George Community Campaign Secretary Alex Withington said: “The timing of this victory couldn’t be better. Of course, we need to raise at least the same amount ourselves to receive the full pledge, and realistically we need more than that because the pub needs a major renovation, but this is a big boost. “

The group’s steering committee, made up of four local residents and businessmen, is in regular contact with the current owner of the pub who supports the plan, allowing them to organize a number of pop-up events in the cafe in open air during the summer to generate support and raise initial seed funds. Villagers and supporters are kept informed of campaign progress via the group’s website, social media and regular electronic newsletters.

The project has the support of the Plunket Foundation, Ashford City Council, Bethersden Parish Council and Ashford MP Damian Green.

George Community President Robin Draper, who has lived in Bethersden for 35 years, said: “The George has been at the center of our community for hundreds of years – a welcoming place where residents can meet, connect and celebrate in equal measure. Our vision of reopening as a community pub will not only ensure that this role and atmosphere is restored, but that it will also be strengthened to provide expanded services to the village and that future profits will be redirected to our community for the long term ” .

Prior to the launch of the offer, the group set up a crowdfunding page raise funds to help cover the costs associated with buying a pub.

There is also a fundraising event for families on December 17 at the Bethersden Village Hall with Christmas carols, entertainment, mulled wine and local beers. For more information, please see future articles on the website or follow The George on Facebook.

People of color representing all hues of the rainbow descended on the Bethany Baptist Church campus in West Los Angeles on October 29 to receive COVID-19 vaccines and booster sessions.

The afternoon fair, hosted by Bethany Baptist, Baldwin Bethany Community Development Corporation and Kedren Vaccines, also featured blood pressure, diabetes and blood sugar tests, as well as boxes of non-perishable food, Visa gift cards and refreshments offered by Earle’s Grill on Crenshaw Boulevard.

“We wanted to help our community here in Baldwin Village and in the Crenshaw area by using our facilities to sponsor a vaccination clinic,” said Rodman Miles, director of Baldwin Bethany CDC, who was appointed to oversee the event by Bethany Pastor LA Kessee.

“After hearing Dr. [Jerry] Abraham talks about taking Kedren mobile units to places like ours, I invited Kedren and they invited Charles Drew (School of Medicine), so we are forming a partnership to help the Crenshaw community and we want to continue to do that. do until 2022, ”noted Miles, who added that attendees also enjoyed Earle’s hot dogs, fries and drinks.

“And it’s all free because all we need to do to get people to get vaccinated is what we will do,” he said.

The clinic provided another opportunity for Abraham, director of Kedren Vaccines, and his staff to fulfill their self-proclaimed mission to inoculate every community of color in LA. To this end, Kedren’s team presented those who chose the Moderna, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson Vaccines and Booster Injection.

Since the vaccines became available, Abraham has partnered with places of worship and community groups to sponsor clinics throughout the city. In his opinion, no place is off-limits when it comes to distributing the blow to stop the pandemic.

“This is how we do work the Kedren way: you meet people where they are. We meet people where we live, work, worship, play and where we go to school. We go there and we vaccinate the confined at home. This is how you do the job, ”Abraham insisted.

“You don’t sit and wait in an ivory tower or a medical mecca hoping and twiddling your thumbs hoping that everything will work out. When you expect things to happen like this, people die. The pandemic happened the way it did and we are not going to allow it to happen again, ”he said.

Beatrice Acy receives a vaccine during the clinic. (Cora J. Fossett / LA Sentinel)

“So from now on we will democratize health care and take it out of the four walls of hospitals and clinics. This is how we are going to make our community healthier, happier, live its better life, its better quality of life. That’s ultimately all we’re trying to do – walk towards the collective immunity we need to end this pandemic. “

And even as COVID-19 infections and death rates decline, Abraham is still asking for vaccinations as cases in African American and Latin American communities remain higher than in other ethnicities.

“We ask you to get vaccinated – not just for yourself, not just for your family, loved ones and your community – but because we know this is the best way to be protected and for all of us to be safe, ”Abraham said.

Dr Kay Veal of the LA County Public Health Department echoed Abraham’s call, saying, “We really need to get the black community vaccinated. We are at 56% vaccination rate and everyone is at 70% and 80%. We have to do it for blacks and browns before the outbreak. “

The Reverend Dawnesha K. Beaver, head of the Kedren Vaccines program, characterized the vaccination campaign by clearly stating: these drugs that save lives.

This is now provided, with the amended plans available for viewing on the Council Planning Portal (PA20 / 09631).

Community engagement events will take place Monday November 8 at Threemilestone School Hall, Tuesday November 9 at Shortlanesend Village Hall, Wednesday November 10 at Pydar Pop Up in Truro and Thursday November 18 at Chacewater WI Hall.

All events take place between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. and are open to everyone.

Following the completion of the next round of consultation, Langarth Garden Village’s hybrid planning application will be formally reviewed by members of the Council’s Strategic Planning Committee.

The request is currently scheduled for consideration at the Strategic Planning Committee meeting on December 16.

“This is especially important in an area on the city-county border, with relatively few community services and meeting places. “

Reverend Miles added that community support for the project had been very positive and that many ideas came from parishioners who often asked him when the center would open.
