“The choir were amazing and delivered a varied and beautiful concert at All Saint’s church. The audience were relaxed and mesmerised by the wonderful music and all really enjoyed the evening. The only distraction being Simon’s assistance dog trying to join in the choruses!!! We followed up with cheese, wine and a bar at the village hall where everyone got the chance to relax further, chat and catch up with friends. Overall a fantastic evening.
We would like to relay our heartfelt thanks to all members of the Sharnbrook Gospel Choir and everyone who came along or bought tickets plus Nick Wells for organised donation of our alcoholic drinks. You all helped us to raise another £502.50 towards getting our toilets upgraded and installing disabled access to the village hall.”
The Pig Roast on the Village Green saturday July 23rd 2016.
A fine summers day greeted the villagers on Saturday for the annual Pig Roast. At 6am the fire was lit and many villagers helped turn the spit during the morning. By the afternoon the green was crowded with many villagers bringing along cakes and drinks. The afternoon was rather warm and some villagers chilled to the music which was provided outside Lamb Cottage. Later some villagers admitted they had slightly overdone the beverages and with the heat had decided to receede for a nap! Overall a great time was had by all including hero, Jeremy who had saved the pig from biting the dust during an incident. The roasting pig had slipped of the spit and Jeremy instinctively reached out with his bare hand to save the pig from falling into the fire! Oops, we hope he is alright! Anyway Souldrop.biz and I am sure most of the villagers would like to wish a big thanks to those that provided the pig and wood and set the afternoon up.
One of the highlights in Souldrop of the Christmas period was the Nativity torchlit procession through the village on Saturday 15th. Adam Green has kindly donated a number of photographs we shall post up in the next couple of days. In the meantime the Rev Tom Sanders has sent us a down-loadable magazine with some news of the recent festivities and some up and coming Church services.

We here at Souldrop.biz would like to wish everybody a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Peace to all!
Meanwhile Santa and his helper paid a visit to the Christmas Fayre on December 9th. The Sunday afternoon Fayre helped to raise funds for the Village Hall. Congratulations to all those who helped make the afternoon a very special Christmastime success.
To top it all, on a very windy afternoon, the village beacon was lit. That’s twice now this year as it was lit for the Diamond Jubilee back in June
Lit Beacon Christmas 2012
Please take good care over the holiday period and don’t drink and drive!
Just to confirm the Souldrop Christmas Fayre is this coming Sunday the 9th at 3pm (Not Saturday the 8th as an earlier post stated)
Please come along and support the local village hall and enjoy a raffle or browse the Christmas Fayre on display. Enjoy a spot of Christmas spirit and visit Santa’s Grotto followed by a spot of ‘mulled wine’, cakes and who knows, a guess the weight of the cake competition? Maybe, we shall have to show up to find out! Any funds raised will go towards supporting our village hall.
