It’s summer and it’s party time! Did you know that Lurgashall Village Hall hires out its furniture, crockery, cutlery, glassware and almost anything else (but the kitchen sink!) that you might need for your summer party?
Have a look at our list of equipment for hireand our charges. Our rates are very reasonable indeed.
When Lady Sandra Abbott discovers that her husband of 40 years is having an affair with her best friend, she seeks refuge in London with her estranged, older sister Bif. The two could not be more different – Sandra is a fish out of water next to her outspoken, serial dating, free-spirited sibling. But different is just what Sandra needs at the moment, and she reluctantly lets Bif drag her along to a community dance class, where she starts finding her feet…
Lurgashall Village Hall – Wed. 4 July
Tickets £5 on the door. Doors and Bar open 7pm for 7.30pm start
It’s high summer and halfway through the year already!
But the Village Hall is still busy: Apart from the regular monthly Film Nights and Afternoon Teas,
the *VILLAGE LUNCH* Ladies invite you to ‘Bring a Friend for Free’ to their delicious Lunch on 9th July – surely an invitation not to be declined!
The *VILLAGE HALL* AGM on 10th July is a Public Meeting, so do come along to support all those on the Management Committee who work so hard to keep our Village Hall alive and buzzing!
On 11th July there is a *PARISH COUNCIL* Meeting, which is open to the public. Both organisations value YOUR input.
And before we know it, it will be August, so we hope everyone is busy in their gardens, potting sheds and kitchens getting ready to exhibit at our 35th Annual *HORTICULTURAL SHOW* on Saturday 18th August. And there are fun classes for children to enter, too. (Schedules available from the Village Shop.)
From this month ‘The Hungry Guest’ bakery in Petworth, who proved very popular during a trial in April, will deliver each Saturday. ‘Bread of Heaven’, Haslemere will continue to supply on Monday to Friday. Do let the shop know if there are any favourite items you would like to buy regularly.
Another new local supplier is Crosbie Cakes, a family bakery in Witley. Crosbie bake the most delicious cakes, brownies and tray bakes using only fresh ingredients – no preservatives or flavourings. Crosbie have a wide selection of cakes (including gluten free), and orders can be placed for parties or special occasions. Crosbie deliver every Thursday, but be quick as they are proving very popular already!

In the Village Hall it’s AGM time: May sees the Parish Council AGM; and the LRA AGM is in June. Both meetings are open to the public.
So do PLEASE come along to have YOUR say. Both organisations need YOUR input.
May’s film will be “Dunkirk”; June’s film to be decided.
The LRA (Lurgashall Recreation Association) is holding its popular fundraising supper and Quiz Night on Saturday 5 May – postponed from earlier in the spring due to the inclement weather. If you would like to attend, please contact Malcolm Caird.
The shop has begun to introduce new DELI PRODUCE each week in the chiller cabinet which are ideal for lunch or a light supper, including a larger selection of cheeses, honey roast ham and a selection of patés.
For those with VEGETARIAN or DIETARY requirements, the shop now sells Quorn mince from the freezer, Artisan nut roast, Gordon Rhodes gluten free Bread Sauce, and Alpro almond milk.
Lurgashall Village Shop is now operating as a community shop and has just completed its third week of trading. Huge thanks go to everyone who has enabled this vital village hub to continue, including:
all our customers, old and new
the army of volunteers
Pam, who has so kindly agreed to help keep the Post Office going in March
the “management” – Sophie, Annabel, Malcolm, Hennie, Sally and Anthony, without whom this whole venture would never have happened.
The shop is open over Easter Bank Holiday weekend, so please make a visit and buy your groceries (and EASTER EGGS)!
From Monday (26th), there will be daily deliveries of fresh HOT CROSS BUNS until the weekend.
And for those who enjoy BAKING, the shop has extended its range of ingredients available on the baking shelves.
If you fancy the cake without the baking, there are three new delicious COOLMORE CAKES to choose from: lemon drizzle, chocolate fudge and carrot cake.
There is also a selection of lovely EASTER CARDS, and STAMPS are now held at the shop counter, should you need to post a card or letter when the Post Office is closed.
So, we are well stocked, looking forward to seeing you – and wishing you all a Very Happy Easter!
2 March 2018 – Lurgashall Village is carpeted in snow and looks wonderfully picturesque, but…. it’s not easy for many villagers, and so neighbours are out in force to make sure that everyone is safe, warm and well.
Meanwhile, the ‘makeover’ to the Village Shop continues, in spite of the wintry weather, and the large team of volunteers are well on schedule to have the shop re-furbished, re-stocked and open again for business on Monday 5 March.
However, one casualty of the snow – our village is virtually cut off – is the LRA Quiz Night on Sat 3 March. This will now be re-scheduled for sometime in May.
