Aston Le Walls WALKING NATIVITY
Fri 20th December Meet at the village hall on Main Street in time for a 7pm start.
This is a tradition that has been going in the village for 30 or so years, with the nativity characters brought to life, and with real animals, a walk round the village with carols and the stable tableau followed by mulled wine and mince pies in the village hall. It’s a magical event and a delightful way to connect with the Christmas story. All welcome.
If your child would like to take part as a shepherd or an angel please let Ali know by Friday 13 Dec on 07762 330 497. Bring a torch!
Upkeep of St Leonard’s Church
We are in need of helpers to assist us with the cleaning of the interior by joining the rota. This involves easy dusting and vacuuming, at the most once every other month. If you could help it would make such a difference. Flower arrangers also wanted! Please contact Ali on 07762 330 497 to offer your help. Visit the Notice Board page for more details.

The Harvest Supper and the Safari Supper were great triumphs and raised much needed money to support our local churches. Well done for everyone who worked hard to make these events a success, and good fun for the Village!
A new, refreshed sign for the Village, showing the footpaths and bridleways, is up on the School fence. Check it out.
Wow, what a Brilliant Success for the 2019 Scarecrow Weekend!
The weather was (mostly) ok, we had 47 amazing Scarecrows and people came from far and wide for the marvellous Scarecrow Trail in Aston le Walls! Many, many thank to everyone who made a Scarecrow, followed the Trail, baked cakes or helped in any way with making the weekend so successful. £671.50 has been raised towards the upkeep of the Village Hall, which is a great resource for the village. The lists of prize winners, raffle winners and the answers are on the Village noticeboard by the Hall and you can find pictures of the Scarecrows and all the answers here!
The Summer Fete on Saturday, 22nd June raised the magnificent sum of £1388.22 with approx. £1400 to come from the Silent Auction! Well done to everyone who helped, organised, baked, grew things, juggled, cooked or spent money – a great effort by all. Many thanks to Philip and Johnnie for the use of their lovely garden (and the bunting!).
