V.E. Day Commemorations.
4th May 2015.

Like many villages, Hixon had a great little event organised, on the Millenium Green, in memory of V.E. Day all those years ago. There were several military vehicles along with lots of Camouflage Netting, many Cadets and lots of local historical documentation as well as a few other attractions including a "Plant Stall." This was of course organised and run by our "Allotmenteers" and many thanks must go to everybody who helped, both on the day and those who provided the wide range of plants to sell. After a donation to the M.G.T. (Millennium Green Trust) we raised 68.20 from the stall.

A few days later the remaining plants were taken to another local event to help them raise funds and then finally those plants still left were placed on the allotments for people to help themselves to with a little request that a small donation be left, at the Allotment's Secretary's house, to go to the funds. (Several additional pounds have been added to the tally in the last few days.)

Millenium Green/Village Hall Celebrations.
4th of June 2013.

As part of the National Jubilee Celebrations the village will hold a fundraiser on Bank holiday Monday, on the Millenium Green if fine and in the Village Hall if necessary.

Hixon Allotments have agreed to have a plant/vegetable stall.

Any plant donations or assistance will be very welcome.

Donations can be made on the day to the stall.
