Best Kept Village:  The Presentation Evening for the Best Kept Village is on Wednesday 15th November at Epperstone Village Hall. We are looking forward to being able to proudly display the plaque in the Village once again.

Past events:

October Community Cinema Night: The 28th of October saw our second film showing of 2017. Their Finest was  a romantic comedy drama set in 1940s London and featured a female screenwriter ,played by Gemma Atherton,  who is hired to write the female dialogue for  an uplifting film to warm the hearts of the nation at a time of war following Dunkirk. The British cast included Bill Nighy and Sam Claflin.

November  5th  Bonfire Night Celebrations saw us host our annual fireworks display at the Governors field & Four Bells. As ever this was a very well-attended event and we received a lot of complimentary feedback regarding the outstanding display of fireworks. Thanks to your generosity, via the bucket collections, we were able to cover most of the cost of the fireworks. This is a free event; however, all donations towards the cost are welcome and enable us to stage more events like this throughout the year. The Four Bells also supported the event, provided a barbeque, sweet stalls and live music in the pub afterwards from 8.00pm.

Monthly Bingo- Fancy a change on a Friday night?

This takes place at the Institute on the third Friday of every month –the next game will be Friday Dec 15th at 7.30pm and then in the New Year on the 19th January.
