We hope everyone had a Brilliant Christmas and Happy New Year to you all.
A BIG thank you to all who contributed and helped make our Santa’s grotto on Christmas Eve.
Father Christmas said he was made to feel so welcome and has promised to visit Tideswell again
next year! Special thank yous go to Tideswell Co-op for donating the mulled wine and to Linda
Easton for again providing her delicious mince pies.

Thanks to Wayne and Heather at the Star and to all who supported Howies “Grand Wakes
Christmas Quiz” which raised £217.00.The triumphant winners were. “Paul’s Christmas Posties”
(No guessing who was on this team?) who kindly donated back their prize money,despite a request
for a stewards enquiry from previous 2 times winners “team Wain and Wright”.

We are pleased to announce the winner of the “Grand Balloon Race” from the finale of Wakes 2015
is 5 year old Alice Lewis who’s balloon made it about 100 miles to North Cotes, near Cleethorpes
on the Lincolnshire Coast. So a big well done to Alice and a prize of £25.00!

The team are now starting preparations for wakes 2016.

This year Tideswell Wakes are gong to be celebrating their 70th (Platinum!) Anniversary and would
like to see if the people of Tideswell have got any old wakes photos etc. that we can borrow and
scan in order to make an archive for this anniversary year. One of our first events will be our Coffee
Morning on Saturday 20th February 2016 10:00-2:00pm at Fountain Square Church Hall. We
invite all Tideswell people to come along and support us and bring your old photographs,
programmes or memorabilia for us to scan.This can be done there and then,so you can take them
back home with you. If you have anything that you think maybe of interest and you cannot make it
for for some reason,please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of the team.
