We were beautifully entertained on 6th May by folk-rock pioneer Ashley Hutchings of Fairport Convention fame and the fabulous melodic vocalist Becky Mills. Their Paradise and Thorns performance was a wonderful mix of traditional and modern folk, new songs and old, dramatic readings, sonnets, diary excerpts, and superb lyrics and musicianship. Ashley’s son Blair Dunlop also joined them and it was lovely to welcome him back following his great performance in the hall last October.
New Year – New 200 Club
The 2022 Marton 200 Club is up and running and it’s easy to take part.
Becoming a member costs £12 per annum for each number purchased.
Membership will provide opportunities throughout the year for you to win cash prizes up to £40.
It also provides vital support for the maintenance of our village hall.
The 2022 Marton 200 Club has monthly draws providing cash prizes of £40, £20 and 2 x £10 that can be won for just £12 per annum.
How does it work?
The 200 Club has been running successfully for many years. Villagers have purchased numbers between 1 and 200 and these have been entered into monthly draws resulting in cash prizes.
The balance between tickets sold and prize money goes to the vital upkeep and maintenance of our village hall. This has been particularly important during the pandemic period when, due to enforced closure, the hall has been unable to generate income through the events that would normally have been held.
We hope that current 200 Club members are happy to keep their existing numbers and we thank them for their continuing support.
Marton has welcomed many new residents lately and we would like to encourage them to get involved.
Please contact Dy Hewett at The Cottage Garden, North Street, email@example.com or 01926 633243 about available numbers.
