Village Week
Village Week

Support the Old Barn Hall:† Each year during Village Week we make a donation to the Bookham Community Association to show our appreciation of this wonderful venue.† We ask members to contribute an additional voucher on†Monday 17th†and Thursday 20th June.† Visitors will be asked to pay an extra £3 in addition to their table money.

The hall was originally†provided for the use of the villagers by a wealthy local philanthropist.† Before this the only meeting places were local inns and he felt that Ďthe working man had nowhere to go in the evening apart from the public housesí. ►See the history of the Old Barn Hall.†

JEAN SUCKLING

We have received the sad news that Jean died peacefully at home on Wednesday 5th June.† Jean was a founder member and former chairman of the club. She was made an honorary member in 2019, on BABC's 50th anniversary. Jean played regularly on both Mondays and Thursdays until very recently when ill health prevented her attendance. Jean was an excellent player and a gentle, gracious† presence who inspired great affection within the club. She will be greatly missed.†

We send our condolences to Jeanís family.

Jean's funeral will take place at 12 noon on Tuesday 16th July at St Michael and All Angels Church, Mickleham, and afterwards at Mickleham Village Hall.

Directions can be found on the church website:†www.micklehamchurch.org.uk
