Clubs & Groups

For the time being, all our Clubs and Groups are summarised on this page.

In the future we would like to include a separate page for each group, and hope that they will be able to keep their own pages up to date!

ParishHall_smallThe Parish Hall Committee

exists to maintain and develop the parish hall. The committee includes representatives from  clubs that regularly use the hall:

Piecemakers
W.I.
Parish Council

The remainder of the committee is made up of co-opted members and there is always room for new faces! The committee meet as needed to discuss and arrange village events, maintenance and fundraising. All time is given voluntarily.

Every other year a Fun Day extravaganza is organised bringing together groups and the community. Each Autumn a Harvest Supper is organised, this involves entertainment, an auction of wares and of course a supper for all.

To coincide with the Horticultural Show we often organise a Funday – this includes tombola, cake stall, car boot sale, dog show and go-kart races down the village lanes. The day ends with the famous duck race! Other events that have been held in the past include Band Night, Antiques Roadshow, Indian Night, Beetle Drive, Barn Dance and Race Night.

Profits from all events are used to maintain the parish hall. Improvements are made to ensure the future of the building for the Parish. If you would like to join us on a regular basis or just with an individual event, or simply hire the hall for your own event you can find further details of facilities and hire charges, and a Contact Form, on our dedicated

South Hill Piecemakers

is a friendly group of enthusiastic patchworkers and quilters. We are an active and busy group – always keen to develop new skills and learn different techniques. As a result our committee organises frequent workshops and events including exhibitions, held every three years. We began ten years ago and now have thirty members.

Quilt detail

 

We are also a very sociable group and enjoy visiting and entertaining our neighbouring quilting groups – Flowerpatch Quilters from Launceston and Goosey Quilters from Tavistock. We often get together with a “show and tell” evening to share our quilts, ideas, inspirations and home-made cake.

If you are a quilter and are interested in joining or if you would just like to come along to a meeting to see what we are up to you would be very welcome. We meet in the Parish Hall on the first Monday and the third Thursday of each month at 7.30 pm..

WILogo

South Hill Womens’ Institute

was formed over sixty years ago and its members continue to enjoy their friendly monthly meetings in the Parish Hall, realising that they are part of a very influential national organisation. Nowadays business at the meetings is kept to a minimum and this is then usually followed by a talk or demonstration (this year we have already heard about the Changing Face of the Ambulance Service, The Life of a Film/TV Extra, Gardening For Birds and had a wonderful Italian Cookery demonstration). At the end of the meeting members enjoy a very social time over tea and coffee. This is certainly how I met and made so many friends in the Parish. There are also many opportunities available to take part in events and activities organised by Cornwall County WI.

Do come along as our guest – young to not-so-young are very welcome at our meetings. We meet in the Parish Hall, Golberdon, with members arriving at 7pm so that we can start the meeting at 7:15pm.  Watch this space for details of meetings in the New Year.

Any further details please contact Liz on 01579 383202.

South Hill Investment Club (SHIC)

Formed in 1996, SHIC was set up as a way to invest in the stock market learning as we go without any great financial risk (the fact we agreed to meet at the Church House Inn had no bearing on it!) Now some eleven years later the club goes from strength to strength. We have had members come and go for various reasons (mostly moving away) but have always managed to keep our membership at our maximum of 20.

Each member pays a small monthly subscription and we choose shares to buy and sell at each monthly meeting along with a few refreshments and light bite to eat. The wonders of email have made communication between members much easier and several members have gone on to make their own investments in stocks and shares with a bit more knowledge and confidence.

Whilst the investments are taken seriously we do try to make meetings fun and enjoyable which was our main aim and we also have various social events during the year.

Members of the club should ideally live in or near to South Hill Parish.

If anyone is interested in the share club then
email Steve Moir or phone 01579 383202.
