Local History Group: April 2022 Update

The next meeting of the Marton Local History Group is on Monday 25th April at 7.30 in the village hall. This will consist of the AGM, covering the time since 2019 when we last had an AGM, followed by a talk on the history of The Elms. This house has a fascinating history from its origins as a couple of cottages in the eighteenth century. As with past AGMs there is no entry charge but you still receive a complementary glass of wine. All welcome.

This is the last meeting at the hall for this season. In May there is a guided walk around historic Brinklow on Monday 16th.

Marton 200 Club – 2023

New Year – New 200 Club

The 2023 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 provides opportunities throughout the year for you to win cash prizes up to £40.
  • Being part of the 200 Club is a great way to show your support for our village hall and its continued use as a community hub.

The 2023 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. £960 was paid out in prize money in 2022! You could be a lucky winner this year!

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 is a vital source of income to ensure the future of our village hall. This was particularly important during the pandemic period when, due to enforced closure, the hall was unable to generate income through the events that would normally have been held.

Current members
We hope that current 200 Club members are happy to keep their existing numbers and we thank them for their continuing support.

New members
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, or 01926 633243 about available numbers.
