New photos have just been added to the 2016 May Fayre gallery on the Photos page. Thanks to Nigel Powell for his camera skills and to our gracious photo host James McCauley.

There are three more ways to get involved with the society coming up soon, see below for details. Hope to see you there!
1) Wood collection – Saturday 4th June.
Another morning in Bonny’s Wood, collecting brushwood to dress our Bonfire. Cut and make more hazel flag poles, learn how to use a draw-knife to strip bark and of course there will be tea and sausages.
The SBS team dominated the group stage of the 2016 Bonfire Cup competition on Saturday but missed out on a place in the final following defeat in their semi-final with Cliffe.

The Rook Inn
We’ve got a good number now for the beer festival on Friday evening, but can always use more willing hands. Pouring beer festival pints is very easy. You just take a prepaid voucher from the punter, turn the tap and out the beer flows, job done.

CAN YOU HELP?
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org (and I’ll pass on to the relevant people).
