    Financing the Kingsdon Chronicle

    The first Kingsdon Chronicle was published on 1st October 2007, and has, I hope all agree, gone from strength to strength.. At the outset it had been my intention that a free Chronicle could be delivered to every household in the parish funded by voluntary donations. This has been achieved thanks to the generosity of so many. The production cost for the last 12 months has been £400. When the Chronicle first set out I used our old Golden Jubilee account for banking purposes. This account was also used for the defibrillator project. With fund raising now started for the Diamond jubilee celebrations in 2012, it has been decided to open 2 new accounts - ‘Kingsdon Jubilee Fund’ and ‘Kingsdon Chronicle’ Should anyone wish to make a donation to production costs, please send it to Wally Elliott at 4 Manor Close, Kingsdon, cheques payable to the ‘Kingsdon Chronicle’ I do not publish the accounts at the express wish of some donors, but they are available should anyone wish to see them. Please contact Wally for more details.

    Treasure Hunt with Bacon Butties

    The first fund raising event for Kingsdon’s celebrations for the Queens Diamond Jubilee in 2012 was held on Saturday 15th August in the Vil- lage Hall. We are indebted to the following:- Richard South who devised the Treasure Hunt clues and questions. Jill Waters, Babs Conway, Sally Clapperton and Julie South who staffed the Treasure Hunt café serving bacon butties and drinks Marilyn Elliott for organising and running the raffle. By the end of the day £206.50 had been raised towards our target of £2,500 required for the hire costs of the marquee etc in 2012. Winners of the Treasure Hunt were Angela & Trevor Saunders. Some people made use of the Village Street Map on the Village Hall no- tice board but it didn’t do them any good, did it Nigel! Nonetheless many thanks to all who participated.
