HVA COMMITTEE NEWS
The HVA is funded almost solely by the income it derives from advertising in the village magazine. Under the incredible drive of Kay Tomlinson over many years we have managed to fund all sorts of things from our income. Unfortunately and understandably, many of our regular advertisers have decided to withdraw their support in favour of simply staying alive! The consequences for this are absolutely dire for the HVA. We would no longer be able to fund the magazine or village events like the upcoming Coronation Fete or the annual Fireworks. The committee could not even fund the hire of the village hall for our meetings.
There is a long term need to consider our situation and it might be perhaps, that the magazine goes exclusively online, or is only available for purchase. I would ask anyone who might like to advertise in the magazine to contact our wonderful Advertising Manager Kay Anderson Ball and she can let you know the details. She is available through this Facebook group.
In the meantime however can I invite anyone who might be prepared to sponsor the Coronation Fete, with any sum whatsoever to consider making a donation to the HVA please contact Jerry Janes or drop an email to Chair / Secretary @holybourne.com and we can give you the details of how to donate electronically.
Currently we cannot fund what we need to do so please, if you feel you can help, then I would be enormously grateful.

Megan-Beth Millar has taken up the challenge of coordinating the Village events to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.
The jubilee celebrations went so well that we hope to mirror some of them. There will be street parties on the Saturday to fit in with the coronation ceremony itself which will be on TV – so we’ll make sure the times don’t clash. We also want to run a “Village Picnic” again on the sports field on the Sunday which will follow on from a junior cricket match being played in the morning.
Details have not been finalised yet – planning has really just started with a coffee morning meeting at the White Hart on Saturday 11th.
If you would like to help in any way – or are even just curious to know what’s going on there is a new WhatsApp group where messages are flying about – it can be joined from a flyer on the Community Hub WhatsApp. Otherwise contact Megan-Beth (above email) or Jerry at email@example.com .
There has been a proposal to build 4 affordable houses in Lower Neatham Lane.
