Events in Smalley

Souper Saturdays

Come and join us on the following Saturdays from 11:30am to 1:30pm at Smalley Church Hall for delicious homemade food and the chance for local people to meet and socialise.

On the menu is homemade soup with a roll, dessert and tea or coffee. The cost is £5 for adults and £3 for children. All funds raised goes to the Smalley Community Group to fund future village projects or events. All are welcome.

If you need help with transport, please ring Neil Paget on 01773 768123. To pre-book your table, please ring Jean Brown on 01773 768229 or 07743 710173.

Do you want to help or get involved? Volunteers of all ages are needed to help on each Saturday. Raffle prize donations would be gratefully received. Do you have a glut of home-grown vegetables we can turn into soup? Can you provide transport help to those who need support to come?

Souper Saturday

Our first two Souper Saturdays have been really well attended and received some lovely comments. Here are just a few of the things that people had to say:

"Really lovely meal and enjoyed getting out and meeting people. Thank you."

"Well done to all involved. Really good meal, excellent all round service."

"Great community event, lovely food and great people."

"Fantastic food and wonderful service! We will definitely come again."


Calendar of Events in Smalley for 2018

We are pleased to deliver our 2018 Smalley Calendar of Events which we hope you will find of interest. This is produced collectively by all the groups and societies which meet in Smalley. As the Smalley Community Group we are delighted with the progress over the past two years in pursuing our vision of bringing Smalley people together. Our “Picnics at the Pavilion” and “Spookfests” have been extremely well-received and attended, as have our “Souper Saturdays.” Please contact us for any information, or if you would like to become involved. We use e-mail, this web site and Facebook pages, but are mindful of the fact that not everyone uses the Internet, and other methods of communication are needed as well. With inclusion as our aim we want to insure that no-one in our village is left out. We would like to reach out to all age groups, listen to what people say, and facilitate activities for all as far as we can. Please look at this site, our Facebook page, or contact us on 01332 883224. All comments and suggestions are welcomed.
