What is it?
We are hoping to inspire as many neighbours as possible in High Halstow to hold a garage sale on the same day. For anyone with too much stuff, this is an opportunity to de-clutter and make some cash outside your very own front door. For some there’s none of the bother of a car boot sale: no need to get up early to get a good spot, no need to pack everything into your car and no sitting for hours in a traffic jam. For others, it’s a chance to explore the community and pick up a few bargains.
How will people know where the bargains are?
Saturday 8th July Wednesday 12th July and a map will be produced which can be picked up from the Village Hall on Saturday 15th July from 9:15 for 50p
Who can register?
There will be two ways
1 – Whether you wish the buyers to come to you or wish a traditional stall in the Hall please complete the form and bring to the shop along with your £5.00. Remember the houses visited will be for High Halstow only

Questions that have been asked will be added to this item below
Q1 Will it only be for two hours
A1 This is the first time we have tried to run this and it was a guess based on the number of stallholders. If the number of stallholders is higher we will extend as long as stall holders wish to have their garage open for sale
Q2 Could this be extended to other parts of the peninsula
A2 As this is the first time we have let it be small this time, but if proves to be a success we would look to run another one later in the year covering a wider area
We have stall holders selling the following:
Furniture, electrical & household goods, power tools, toys, books, pottery, cards, tombola, shoes, handbags and much much more. Fiesta Loca will also be attendance to supply food
Not too late to have a stall as will have time to add amendments to the map
Deadline Now Extended to 10th June 2017
Every day sees an act of kindness, generosity, sacrifice and courage in our small community. From the friend who visits sick neighbours to the single parent struggling to raise children alone. From the sick child who always has a smile to those who work sacrificially to ensure our community is a wonderful place to live. The High Halstow Relief in Need Charity is once again sponsoring the Heron Awards. It has been 10 years since we last ran our community award schemes there are lots of good people out there who deserve to be recognised and thanked for the difference they make to us all of us. So often we don’t realise what a person makes till they are no longer here and then it dawns on us what we have lost. Let’s try our best to change that and say thank you while they are still here. Maybe what they do will inspire others to do the same. There will be a special award night on June 28th so book the date now and join with us as we celebrate the efforts of our friends and neighbours.
There are two main categories ; “Junior” (under 16) and “Adult” (over 16). Each main category has 3 further divisions as listed below. There will also be a “Community Hero” chosen by the judges from the nominees. Applications must be completed in full, put into a sealed envelope marked “Heron Awards” and deposited in the Rectory letter box (2 Cooling Road, High Halstow ME3 8SA) or handed into the shop no later than 10th June 2017. Applications maybe supported by one A4 page of supporting information, but no photographs. The judges are nominated by The High Halstow Relief in Need Charity and the judges decision will be final.
Rules & Conditions
You may nominate anyone who lives, works or attends schooling the village or makes a significant contribution to the village.
A nominee may only be nominated for one category and in the event of a nominee receiving more than one nomination the judges will decide into which category he or she should be entered.
The more information you give us about the person and why they deserve an award the easier it will be for the judges to make a decision.
The number of nominations will not effect the judges decision BUT the quality of the supporting evidence will.
Illegible nominations will be discarded.
Nomination forms & supporting documentation will not be returned.
The judges may also present a special community award to anyone they feel has made a significant contribution to our community.
Alternatively, you can respond:
The consultation opened on Monday 16 January 2017 and has been extended to 5pm on Monday 10 April 2017.
Please find below the revised budget for 2016/17 as well as the budget for 2017/18

At the end of last year, a group of singers was needed for some community events and Ken and Maggie, both of whom have long been associated with local choirs, got together with a group of enthusiastic villagers who were very keen to sing and help the community. There were no auditions – just a love of music!
Before long there were many of us having a very enjoyable time, making new friends and learning new musical skills that surprised us all! Ken Reynolds inspirationally leads the group and we started with singing carols for the Christmas Tree Festival which was a great success and helped to raise money for the ‘Friends of St Margaret’s Church’. Everyone was keen to go carol singing as a traditional village Christmas gift to our village. This was very popular, many joined us to sing and the villagers supported us very well. Many people – particularly villagers who had recently moved to live here from big towns, were enchanted to see that these traditions are still alive and well. The carol singing ended brilliantly at Rupert and Sally’s house with mulled wine and mince pies which were most gratefully received! Donations from the carol singing raised £120 for Demelza – a charity close to the heart of those we met along the way.
The singers who had originally just got together for the Christmas events, then wanted to continue as a choir after Christmas, so we got together again for our first practice on Monday 16th January and songs from the musicals proved to be very popular! We are very grateful for the support we have received from Stephen our vicar and the Friends of St Margaret’s.
The High Halstow Community Choir will meet fortnightly on a Monday evening in St Margaret’s Church at 8pm – 9pm.
All are welcome – do come and join us to sing!
