A PLEA from the sellers of poppies.

There are plenty of shops in Tadley selling them, but because Budgens is no longer there they are concerned that sales will be down, so please do give generously to help the British Legion in their valuable work.

SEEABILITY have a Christmas draw running at the moment to raise funds and will be selling tickets at the turning-on of the lights in November.

ST STEPHEN'S, Baughurst, is holding a 50-50 sale on Saturday, November 1, and then, on the second Saturday in the month, at Heath End Village Hall, from 9.30am to 10.30am.

For further information, call Rose on 0118 9813600, or Margaret 0118 9812787, between 5pm and 7pm.

DATES for your diary. Events at the community centre: November 15 - British Legion Concert, November 22 - Christmas sale, December 6 - Hurst Singers Concert with Father Christmas, December 14 - Basingstoke Concert Band, December 20 - Tadley Band Concert, and December 21 - Frosty the Snowman panto.

A team from the Anthony Nolan Trust will be visiting the Rec Soc on Monday, December 9, from 11am to 2pm and would like people interested in bone marrow donation to go along to register and be committed.
