December 2016

Christmas is Coming!  We all gathered at the Hall to celebrate by switching on the Christmas tree lights, decorating the tree, singing some carols, drinking some mulled wine and eating lots of mince pies.  All great fun!  We had fun at the Hall Christmas Supper and Music Hall too with entertainment from A Bit of Fun and We 3 Aged Thespians who performed a sketch loosely based on Allo Allo.

February 2017

Our first Wedding Fair!  And it won't be our last as it proved to be so popular!!  You can find more images and details of our exhibitors on our Wedding Page.

March 2017

Pictures of Great Alne was a trip down Memory Lane for many of us when John Bunting and John Ruffell kindly presented some images from their photographic collections.

Our Annual General Meeting this year was held on 22 June.  The minutes of the meeting and the accounts can be downloaded by clicking on the links below.

July 2017

In July the Hall received a huge boost to its appeal for funds to create a Centenary Memorial Garden on the derelict land behind the Hall. An Awards for All  Big Lottery Grant of £10,000 was awarded to the project which was launched to commemorate the ending of the Great War 100 years ago and the part played in it by the men and women from Great Alne and Kinwarton. The Hall was built in 1921 as a War Memorial, funded entirely by local residents.

We also held our annual Village BBQ this month.The weather was warm and dry and there wasn't a rainbow in sight this year! Everyone had a wonderful time chatting with friends over a beer and a burger (or a glass of wine and a hot dog!) while the children played games on the grass.  Unfortunately we forgot to take any photos!
