Shadwell in Bloom: the SIB committee are organising a Casino Night at the Red Lion (with kind permission of Richard Hicks), on Saturday, January 19 7.30pm for 8pm. Tickets are available for £10 this includes a welcome drink and canapés and some fun chips (not the edible kind). Further chips can be bought during the evening. A fun casino is very simple, at the beginning of the evening the initial fun money is given out. This is then taken to the casino table of your choice and exchanged for chips. Bets are made with these chips. At the end of the evening a count is taken and the person who won the most chips is declared the winner and awarded a prize. The best thing about a fun casino evening is that you get all the fun without the risks. There will be an auction and raffle. Money raised from this event is in aid of SIB.

Christmas Tree: the village Christmas tree was kindly donated by the owner of the Village Golf course at Wike and it made a very colourful and attractive addition to the Shadwell during Christmas. Thanks are extended to the Village Golf for this kind donation.
