Hemyock Acorns ClubThe club normally meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Parish Hall in Hemyock, at 2:45pm.
The object of the club is to provide companionship, community spirit, and information on village affairs to mature members of both sexes from Hemyock and district. Also to hear interesting speakers, and provide the opportunity to go on outings.
We have an interesting speaker or activity and a raffle each month.
Subscription is £5.00 per year payable in January, this includes tea and biscuits at each meeting.
New members would be very welcome.
For more information, contact Mrs Violet Lee, on 01395 274350
They have learned about interesting things that happened to George Williams and his dog when they walked around the coast of Great Britain.There was so much to talk about, there will be a return visit as he has was not able to finish. Then Janet Govier came from Wellington to tell members about the Oxfam Shop in the town as well as the History of Oxfam itself.
Hemyock Acorns have had an interesting programme of speakers so far this year. Brenda Persey started it off with a selection of music and songs to suit all tastes. This was followed by an informative talk on 'Wills and Power of Attorney' by Bill Bennett and colleagues. In March members were delighted to welcome Mike Bolton, who had come at short notice to give a most interesting presentation, which incorporated 'Photography', 'Family History' and 'Fun'. Future talks will be Mr Williams in April speaking about walking around Britain with his dog.
The meeting of the Acorns was well attended when members met in Forbes Lounge on Wednesday February 18.During the business part of the meeting, Christine Brown was elected as Vice President. She was thanked by the Chairman Mary Hawkins for taking on the position. Members had come to listen to a talk by Dee, Angela and Jack from Milford and Dormer a firm of solicitors about Wills and Powers of Attorney.
In October Mary Hawkins agreed to continue as chairman. It has been a successful year with a varied selection of speakers. Annual Subscriptions will remain at £5.00. When the business was finished Mary introduced Chris Draycott who came at short notice to tell of his family connections with life in India. So good was the record keeping this had been a fairly easy task but he has not been able to ascertain why his Great Grandfather went there in the first place in 1858.
Hemyock Acorn's Group had an enjoyable meeting in August. 34 members were welcomed by the Chairman Mary Hawkins. After the brief business session, it was agreed to have a trip to Bath on November 13th 2008. Mary then introduced Jim and Tracey, two police officers who were spending the day in Hemyock. Members were given cards to write down any worries they may have. No matter how trivial,Jim assured members they would be read. He said he would like to spend more time in the village,but there is a large area to cover in Mid Devon and matters crop up which take up a lot of his time. Jim was able to tell members about the Tour of Britain Cycle Race which is passing through Hemyock on September 9th. He was thanked by Mary.
The March Meeting of the Acorns (over sixties) was well attended. The Reverends David and Elsie Howells showed slides of their journey in the steps of Saint Paul. The scenery was spectacular and the remains of many ancient buildings was amazing. They were thanked by Val White who said it was a most appropriate subject as it was now Holy Week.
