Pop up Pub, broken stuff and ART

Saving the Black Horse – pop up pub

The latest news from Judith: “Due to circumstances beyond our control we’ve had to bring the Pop-Up pub forward one day to **FRIDAY 29th September** – please update your diaries! Our local brewery, Lord Conrad’s, will be serving ales and cider from 4pm-11pm, and we’ve been told there are a few bottles of ‘Save The Black Horse’ special beer left. We will be serving curry (with rice) from 6pm-8pm. All welcome!” And, if you haven’t seen the news on the campaign’s blog, they recently posted: “At about 8pm we will have a brief update on what we know about the new tenants and their plans for the pub, as well as what we plan to do now the Black Horse is going to be re-opened. We have made contact with the new tenants, Colin and Amanda O’Neill, who are currently working very hard getting the pub ready to re-open (hopefully) before the end of the year.”

Something Broken – need a fix?

Just a quick update that this weekend is the Histon Repair Café frpm 10:30 am – 1:30 pm, on 30 Sept 2017 at St Andrews Centre, School Hill, Histon. What is a repair cafe I hear you ask? You can basically bring anything you need repairing that you can carry that will not make a mess in the venue.  Here are some suggestions: A bicycle, clothing in need of repair, small electrical or electronic appliances, lamps, toys, mobile phones, laptops, printers, items that need gluing, jewellery that needs a clean/repair etc. Whatever it is, it might not even be broken – just dirty, and you don’t know how to clean it without damaging it – or you can’t work out how to use it without the manual – bring it along.  You can even bring several things – though to be fair, you will have to join the queue several times! Their website with full information is here: http://circularcambridge.org/repaircafe/ 

Feeling artistic or wanting to invest in art?

It’s the Village Art Exhibition (and Sale) on 7th and 8th October, 11am to 4.00pm in the Village Hall. Details and entry form in the September Village Newsletter (which you can read online at https://tinyurl.com/y9zgyn75 ). Feeling creative – you have almost missed the deadline for entries – so contact Graham Carver straight away: grahamcarver@aol.com
