Making Money

Half of the Trelawnyd Flower Show Committee


After much, MUCH debate the Flower Show Committee have finally agreed what we're are going spend our monies on this year.
  • We will pay for the coach for the village Friendship Group's Christmas outing! 
  • We shall cover the cost for new linens for St Michael's Church
  • We shall contribute £250.00 to the village conservation group for Summer plants
  • We shall buy a new clock for the Memorial Hall and will offer to replace the existing water geyser in the kitchen which is knackered
  • We shall also offer to purchase new crockery for the hall
I love our committee, they may have taken bleeding hours to make a decision about spending money but when I told them that Sandra C from the village needed help with her fund raising Christmas Fayre, to a man they volunteered to run the refreshment table.

  3. Erm, the crockery you are replacing in the hall, it wouldn't be utility china?

    If it is sell it off in a jumble sale! You'll make some cash out of it!

  4. Has anyone thought of asking Auntie Gladys is she would donate her recipe for the scones? Then you should have a lively auction with plenty of bidding (absent bidding as well for those of us on the other side of the pond) but there ought to be a rule about sharing. No sharing.

    Next year it should be auctioned again with the same rules. I am sure some of us would be happy to bid for it.

    I am sort of back among the living and while I read every day the cast finally came off so I typing again.

  5. I'm going to just ask this and sound like the American I am.... what the *bleep* is a geyser in the kitchen? Is it a water fountain? A natural hot springs that spouts sulfurous water at hourly intervals? (ie: Yellow Stone's Old Faithful) A faucet with a faulty valve?
    Do tell.

    2. I read this as: leaking old plumbing that needs replacement.

    3. A geyser is a water heater in the kitchen. I
      wonder what the American name would be for it.

    5. Our water heater/hot water tank is in the laundry room.

    6. Geyser is a water heater in the kitchen unless you live in the US then a geyser in the kitchen is water shooting out of the pipes and not a good thing :)

  6. Worthy causes all round. Village fund spending is so much more focused than from bigger organisations. Straight to where it's needed.

  8. Excellent choices I am sure! A great way to contribute to lots of parts of the village community that was contributed by lots of parts of the village community. It proves that what goes around comes around doesn't it!

  10. It must be like a meeting of the Tory cabinet at 10 Downing Street. There's Teresa May and Amber Rudd on the right and Philip Hammond on the left. But who's taking the picture? Trelawnyd's own Boris Johnson - that's who.

  11. Are the people wonderful, because they live in a wonderful place, or is the place wonderful because of the people who live there.

  12. You really do live in a lovely village John - and I know that your contribution goes a long way to making it so.

  13. This post reminded me of a novel where they have the cutest little village, and everyone knows each other, and they all help each other out. I love it, John. You are blessed, and so are the people around you...and the animals!

    1. Are you thinking of the "Miss Read" series of books on life in an English village?

  14. A geyser can be slang for a "bloke" but I think spelling is different. A bloke for the folks abroad is a man. This is getting complicated.
