On 9th October, the “Alan Bennett and a Lady of Letters” production was held in the village hall. £200 was raised on the evening to go towards Hall funds. Plans are now being made for another production of “Love Letters”, probably at or around Valentine’s Day. Further details on this site.
Alan Bennett comes to Letham in the form of a play and examples of his monologues on Saturday 9th October.
Ticket price is £6 and includes a glass of wine .
Tickets are obtainable from John Vaughan 01337 810359
Pat and Hugh Laidlaw from North Lodge, Monimail, are going to host a Garden Tea Party on Sunday 29th August in aid of Letham Hall funds. The garden will be open from 2-4.30pm and in addition to the chance to have a cup of tea or coffee and walk around the garden and wood, there will be a plant stall, a baking stall and a tombola. There will be a treasure hunt and a quoits game for the children. Entrance costs £2.50 for adults and 50p for school age children. Car parking will be available in the church car park. The garden is fully accessible but the wood has uneven ground.
Come along and enjoy some Letham reared bacon, served in a roll, at the Letham Hall Coffee Morning this Saturday. The Rotherams of School Brae Have supplied the bacon, at least one of their (ex) pigs did!
Alas the Letham coffee bean plantation hasn’t really worked so it will have to be Columbias finest I’m afraid!
Earlier this year, Donald Dallas (local teacher, long-time resident and President of the Letham Lawnmower Society) delivered a fantastic talk on the history of Letham. I filmed the talk and have finally managed to workout how to burn it on to DVD.
If you’d like a copy of the DVD, it can be purchased for the value price of £5. All profits to the Village Hall Fund (ie all of it as I’ve donated the blank DVDs!) If you’d like a copy, either email , phone him on 01337 810349 or send a cheque to “Letham Village Hall Fund” for £5 per disc, to Saddlers Cottage, The Row, Letham, Fife KY15 7RS.
With more than 80 lots donated by a variety of local businesses and individuals, the Letham Village Hall Silent Auction was a great success, raising over ?1000 for village hall funds. This follows hot on the heels of ‘Old Letham Night’ last month which also raised a considerable sum of money to help with the upkeep of the hall. There was a good crowd of people there, all trying to outbid each other to get the best deal on the various items. There was a very wide range of goods and services on offer including:
- sand, gravel and dung
- clothing and jewellery
- artwork and crafts
- locally produced meats and homebaking
- dog walking and babysitting
- a microlite flight and tickets for Knockhill
Lots were auctioned in batches of 10 or 20 in a hands-on, up-close-and-personal version of ebay. Buyers tried to sneakily up bids without their rivals seeing and then jostled for position beside the lots as the clock ticked towards the last few seconds of bidding! One of the most keenly fought contests was amongst the young people – for a bag of homemade doughnuts!
It was an entertaining night so thanks to the organisers and particular thanks to all the individuals and businesses who contributed items.
