31st March, Village Hall

Preview 7.30-8.30pm Tuesday 28th March

Last month we told you how the HSA and the GI's (Village Hall fund raising Committee) were planning this Wonderful Extravaganza of an Auction of Promises

As time is Marching on we must keep you up to date with all the great ideas we are Hatching (it's near Easter see!). So here are just a few of the great promises we have received.

  • A tour and tea at the Houses of Parliament
  • A day sailing on a 34ft catamaran on the Solent with lunch on the Isle of Wight
  • Flying in Mike Smith's helicopter
  • Having a four course finner party for eight prepared, cooked and served in your own home.
  • Want the children to go on a Mystery Tour? Then let Mrs Hounslow and Mrs Norton organise it and take them for you!
  • Ride on a Harley Davidson to the Ace Cafe with up to 40 other bikes! Enjoy a real bikers meal and wonder in amazement at 400/500 Harleys, each one different from the other.
  • How about a glider flight?
  • Let a professional create that special cake for you
  • Get that family tree researched
  • Tour of Chiltern FM Studios and have breakfast in the studio whist they are on air
  • And many more!

These are just a taster of the promises we have received so far. Many of these are things that just can't be bought. So come along have a great evening, enjoy a supper and great fun bidding for the promises. Some will cost just a few pounds other a tad more. Don't forget our Preview on the 28th March.

The cost is just £5, which includes your supper (ploughman's), bring your own drink and glasses and just enjoy the event.

The profits will be split equally between the two organisations.

For any further information or to buy tickets, contact Eaton Bray Lower School on 220468.

Stop Press: Tony Denson (who was auctioneer 2 years ago) has kindly agreed to carry out this onerous task again.
