18th December 2014 - Stamp Of Approval

As those Christmas cards pour through the letter box, please don’t just throw the stamps away.

Maggie Higgins collects used stamps for the Royal National Institute for the Blind, so when Christmas cards drop through your letter box, please don’t just throw away the envelopes. Tear the stamps off with about a centimetre of paper all round, and pop them through Maggie’s letter box in Holloway House, Bell Streed.

Meanwhile, Lynn Corke is encouraging Horntonians not to send cards to friends and neighbours in the village.

“Instead, why not sign the communal Christmas card which has gone up on the notice board and send the money you save to a good cause of your choice,” she said. “You’ll save a tree too!”

18th December 2014 - Goodwill To All Men

Hornton has a Goodwill Fund to send a card, a small gift and our good wishes to village people who are sick, just to let them know we are thinking of them - and it needs your cash and what better time of year to give.

The idea came from villager Jean Burden, whose mother ran a similar scheme in Cropredy, where it was a great success.

"It's just really a practical way of us showing that we're concerned about people who are ill," said Jean.

What the Goodwill Fund really needs is donations, so that a gift most suitable for the recipient can be bought. If you'd like to give some money, please contact Jean at jpburden (at) hotmail dot co dot uk, or call her on 01295 670664.
