Planning for Wakes 2014 is already underway and we are extremely excited to welcome new members to the team. John Hallows joins us as Vice Chair and has a wealth of Wakes knowledge and experience having been involved with Wakes for many years. We also welcome Gillian White to the team. Gillian has kindly volunteered to be our Secretary and is already doing a sterling job organising us. Thank you to those who attended the annual general meeting and continue to support us. I would also like to personally thank the current Wakes Committee who continue to give their time to the village and who are enthusiastically willing to be part of Wakes 2014. I appreciate their hard work and dedication.

A big thank you to Princess Imogen and Rosebud Ella who attended the Remembrance Service and laid our wreath. Queen Sophie was unfortunately a little bit under the weather that day but will be back with us for our Christmas Festivities.

Father Christmas has been in touch and will be visiting the village Grotto on Christmas Eve. He enjoyed leading our Torchlight Procession so much last year, he would like to do it again! The Christmas Torchlight Procession will be from The George Hotel at approximately 17.45 but please come along earlier from 17.00 and have a Christmas Tipple and get into the festive spirit with our brilliant Tideswell Band! Tickets will be on sale from Tideswell Stores, £1 per child from 1st December.

Before that though please come along to the Big Christmas Quiz. Our very own Wakes Quiz Master Howie will be hosting this event on Thursday 19 December at The Star, start time 21.15. We suggest you get there a bit earlier if you would like a table!

Test yourselves against the might of Tidza’s finest brains, and see if anyone can knock “Mums and Tum’s” off the Number one spot they claimed back at the Wakes Week quiz. It is only £1 per person to enter (max of 5 people per team) which leaves plenty of spare cash for beverages and a go on Andrew Turner’s Christmas Raffle! Hope to see you all there, especially you Dave Greenan!

See you all in December!
