There is so much going on in the village over the next few weeks that we've dispensed with the usual format to create more space. You can still view the rest of the site by clicking on the links above.
West Tytherley is an amazingly generous place where groups of you arrange all sorts of events to support causes and charities that do so much for us and our neighbours. Here's what's coming next:
Allen Long is running the Berlin marathon to raise money for Macmillan. In order to encourage you to support this fantastic organisation, there will be a ...
FUND RAISING GERMAN NIGHT ON SAT 5 JULY.
A GERMAN FEAST will be served and there's a licenced bar. Music will be courtesy of The Sulkys.
Tickets are just £10 and it all kicks of at 7pm.
Pat Barretto has taken leave of her senses but for a really good cause. She will complete a tandem parachute jump on 19th July to raise funds for "Pilgrim Bandits".
They specialise in the support and rehabilitation of amputees in the forces. A snippet of their mission statement sums it up nicely “….We endeavour to get them to believe in a life worth living again. Through Pilgrim Bandits they push to new limits. They help others. They inspire children and young people by working with schools and care centres. They raise funds like other charities, and they also try to fund research to push scientific and engineering advances into prosthetic limbs.”

This was a really great day and raised over £500 towards the pavilion renovation and upgrade.
THE VILLAGE CLEANUP
Many thanks to Julie Neilson and Liz Dowding for organising the village clean-up on Saturday 14th June. A small but enthusiastic group assaulted the war memorial, the millenium benches, the shop exterior and the various donations to the verges up North Lane (thanks to white van man!).
The James Stachan Bi-annual Insanity Walk
James is treasurer of our village shop. He knows better than most that we borrowed a lot of money from the government to help build the shop in 1996. There is just £2,000 left to repay but the shop's turnover doesn't generate a sufficient surplus to pay it off.
He Did It!!!
Congratulations to James. He walked to Winchester and swam back in the torrential rain after a day's work.He has now raised over £1,800 on top of the £2,000 he raised last time.
You can still sign up at the shop or pay directly into the shop account.
