St. John's Players presents Dangerous Corner by J B Priestly - Directed by David Battom
Showing at The Townley Memorial Hall from Wednesday 23rd through to Saturday 26th of October at 19:30
"All seems well at the Caplan's independent publishing house until a can of worms is unceremoniously ripped open at Robert and Freda Caplan's dinner party. A chance remark plunges the guests into a re-examination of the mysterious events surrounding the recent death of young Martin Caplan, and skeletons come crashing out of the closet in more ways than one. Life will never be the same again.........or will it?"
Tickets available from www.stjohnsplayers.co.uk and on the door. Seats numbered and reserved.
Fulbourn's Repair Cafe in the Townley Hall

Fulbourn Autumn Community Litter Pick - Call for Volunteers
Sunday, 29 September 2019 from 14:00-18:00
Meet between 2.00 pm and 2.30 pm outside the Fulbourn Centre entrance.
We hope that you will join us for the second village litter pick of 2019. As usual, there is plenty of litter in many places, but with enough volunteers we should be able to cover most of the village and get out along the approach roads towards the parish boundaries, where much litter is thrown from passing cars! Pickers and bags (and bag holders - useful if it is a little windy) will be available from outside the Fulbourn Centre, but please bring your own picker if you have one. And don't forget suitable gloves and a hi-vis vest for when on road verges - however, we will have gloves and a few vests to borrow if necessary. Accompanied and supervised children are very welcome.
If required, lifts can be provided to and from your picking area, and refreshments will be available back at the Centre between 4.00 pm and 5.30 pm. Arrangements will be made for collection of the filled bags from the roadside - no need to carry them back.
If you cannot make the Sunday afternoon but would still like to help, contact us for the pickers and bags so that you can litter pick your chosen area in the morning on on another day - several people have been doing this recently.
Although there is usually a reasonable turnout of volunteers, we could always use a few more hands to ensure that all areas are covered and cleared of litter, and that the effort is spread amongst a greater number. It isn't hard work but it is very satisfying! Do come and join in if you can, even for just an hour - it makes such a difference to the village.
Cole Porter Evening
With Neil Maxfield (singer) accompanied by Ricardo Fernandes (piano).
Friday, 22nd of November 2019 from 20:00
Townley Memorial Hall
An evening of music and anecdote, in a nightclub cabaret setting, honouring one of the great songwriters and performers of the 1930s, who wrote many standards, such as I've Got You Under My Skin and Night and Day.
Neil Maxfield charts Cole's life from childhood to death - an intriguing look at the not-so-well-known legend, interspersed with many Cole Porter classics and some lesser-known gems. A fun and entertaining evening.
Tickets: will be available soon. To receive email updates, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Apple Pressing Day
Sunday, 13 October 2019 from 10:00-16:00
Old Stables, Fulbourn Manor, Manor Walk
This will be our eighth apple pressing event - do join us for another day's activities.
Hopefully, some of our regular apple providers will have some for us again this year, but if you have more than you cannot possibly eat or keep, then please let us know. We always need lots of apples!
Bring apples on the day (in the morning if possible) but we may be able to help pick and/or collect if necessary during the preceding week (we have long-handled pickers for large trees). Any quality windfalls should be freshly gathered and clean please - those covered with grass cuttings or mud are difficult to use. Please let us know in advance if you are planning to bring some apples.
We shall be serving drinks and cakes (including apple cakes) during the day - offers of cakes and biscuits gratefully accepted. Many willing hands will be needed throughout the day for a variety of activities - washing, cutting (please bring a knife if you can), crushing, and pressing - so do come along, even for a short time. Supervised children are most welcome - we have had helpers and visitors from 2 yrs to 92 yrs, who have enjoyed the day. All helpers (and apple providers) will, of course take home some bottles.
You are also welcome to just come and watch the action while enjoying a drink and some cake, and, subject to availability, go away with a bottle of Fulbourn Apple Juice 2019 for a small donation. Purchases on the day will be limited as we hope to be able to sell some at the December Community Market and use some at other events.
