The Village Hall was transformed into a nightclub for a swish party on New Year’s Eve. Casino Royale played on the big screen while Eddie Cochran and his band played two superb sets. A fun casino also provided entertainment to guests enjoying champagne and canapés. A great evening was had by all and the Club Committee would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to put the event on, those who served on the night and last but not least the bleary-eyed crew that turned up the next morning to clear up!

Scaldwell Club would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated so generously to our main fund raiser. There was a good sized crowd at the shared lunch and auction; the “kids-only” lots attracted particularly fierce bidding. Thank you to everyone who came, bought and endured the auctioneer’s dreadful jokes, raising some £1,300 in the process.

Join us for a traditional service of carols and lessons at the church at 4pm!

A good-sized crowd came to the park on Sunday 3rd for the hastily rearranged fireworks display. Many thanks to the large team of volunteers who put on another spectacular and entertaining event

Apologies but we’ve had to move the fireworks from saturday 2nd to Sunday 3rd. Same time – gates open at 6:30

The strong winds forecast from the south – particularly the gusts – mean that we were unable to be sure that we could run the display on the Saturday.

Have you seen this cute cat?

This young male black cat is probably travelling between Brixworth and Old so may well be coming through Scaldwell. If you see him, please call Alex on 07544 817994.

Many thanks and please keep your eyes skinned!

The church had its annual clean on the 3rd August. Polished from top to bottom by a great team of volunteers, fuelled by tea and scones. Thanks to everyone who generously gave their time to keep our church looking so spick and span.

If you missed last year’s Scaldwell Club Treasure Hunt, it will have been a long year of regret and sorrow. But cheer up! The Treasure Hunt has returned and it’s better than ever. Meet at 5pm in your car at the Green on the 7th September for a fun-filled and challenging search for clues in the surrounding countryside. The prize will be….well come along and find out…..

Actual prize may vary…

A packed church on Sunday 21st July witnessed Paul being officially licensed as a Lay Reader in the Church of England. This was the culmination of many years of study and practical training. Many congratulations, Paul!
