Quiz Night

The Quiz Night on Saturday 13th April was much fun and a great success. There were 9 teams in total, with a wide age group represented from the community.

The top three teams were within 5 points of each other, with “The Glebe Trotters” coming out on top, closely followed by “Sex and Drugs and Sausage Rolls”, and “Upper Glass”. The Wooden Spoon was won by “Thixy Chics” and the best team name being won by our second placers “Sex and Drugs and Sausage Rolls”. The final score board is shown below.

We raised £155 in total which will go to Hall funds for the continued upgrade programme. Thank you to everyone who attended, and in particular Hugh, Fiona and Jamie who set up the whole evening and quiz questions, and Cheryl for helping out on the night.

Tree Planting

Planting our Community Orchard

The children of Glass School and helpers had a busy morning this Friday. Two dozen fruit trees were planted – a mix of apple, plum and cherry. We have produced a map of the tree locations and the Christian names of the children that planted each tree. We also planted a further 450 hedging plants, which completes the green space’s transition to a place which is ideal for a range of wildlife. We also have a stretch of grass for sports & leisure. When the trees yield fruit it can be harvested by anyone, so help yourself in a few year’s time.

In addition to our tree planters we’ve had help from a gang of helpers who dug holes, made tree protectors & knocked in stakes.

Many thanks for the funders of this work: Co-op Community Fund and the Woodland Trust.

Hogmanay in Glass Hall 2023/4

Thank you very much to everyone who made Hogmanay at the Hall possible this year. There was a tremendous turn out, and it was a really wonderful night.

There are so many people to volunteered their time and skills to make it possible. Thank you to Lou for her amazing organisation with gathering up everyone’s tasty contributions and sorting the kitchen/table service! Thank you to everyone who bought the tasty contributions! Thank you to Morven for arranging the purchase of the decorations and for making the hall look so great! Thank you to Fiona for putting together a really fun variety show with some class acts and lots of hilarity! Thank you to Brodie & his gang for their skills with the sound and lighting.

Hogmanay isn’t necessarily a fundraiser but we did make nearly £800 in profit so that will go towards the continuing renovation of The Hall

We are already looking forward to next year.
