The Witch Comes to Exbourne
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

January 9, 2008: On Friday, 21st December, customers at the Post Office, shop and café in Exbourne Village Hall, were surprised to be served by characters from Hansel and Gretel. The Post Office was taken over by the Wicked Witch and Hansel and Gretel served customers in the shop and café, assisted by a Wicked Stepmother. The children of the Pre-School paid a surprise visit to sing Christmas songs and Father Christmas dropped in to hand out presents. Mulled wine, mince pies and bacon butties added to the festive victuals and ensured good cheer. The shop committee would like to thank everybody who helped make the morning such a fun event. The Exbourne & Jacobstowe Community Association would also like to thank all of the volunteers and customers who have supported the shop project during the past year. We wish you a very Happy New Year.
