Fauldhouse Spring Hunt

27 March – 8 April 2021

Lockdown didn’t stop Fauldhouse Spring fun!  We designed a Spring Hunt for you to enjoy outdoors (as part of your daily exercise) around Fauldhouse with family.

Anyone could join in, all you had to do was walk around the village looking in shop/community windows and on notice boards for The Hub’s big bright yellow chick posters.  Each had Spring questions and a word to find.

Fauldhouse schools, playgroup and nurseries were given fliers for the children to bring home.


2020 events

Unfortunately we had had to cancel many of our annual events due to Covid 19 safety restrictions.

Fauldhouse Christmas Hamper Appeal

Monday 16 November – Friday 11 December 2020
*Covid safety measures in place

As we all know Christmas 2020 was a particularly difficult time for many local people due to the current pandemic and its impact on individuals, families and communities!

With this in mind, F&BV CDT and our team of fantastic community volunteers did what we could to give people a little helping hand, to try and bring some much needed Christmas cheer! Following the success of our volunteer led Christmas Hamper Project in previous years, we collected hamper donations again this year. Hampers and donations were delivered to individuals and families on a tight budget, and to those who were lonely, isolated; to help relieve some of the pressure this year.

Giving
We asked if you would like to donate a hamper and/or a cash donation (towards Brannan Butcher’s vouchers) please donate between Monday 16 November and Friday 11 December. Drop off locations this year will be Eastfield Development Centre, Wednesday to Friday, 9am-3pm and Fridays at The Hub between 12-1pm.

Receiving
We asked if you, your family, or anyone in the community you know would benefit from a Christmas Hamper then please contact us on 01501 773 699, message us on Facebook @FauldhouseCDT or email ann@fauldhouse.org.uk


Community Christmas Giving Tree

Monday 16 November – Friday 11 December
*Covid safety measures in place

Pop into The Hub (Friday 12-1pm), Eastfield Development Centre (Wednesday-Friday 9am-3pm) or Fauldhouse Partnership Centre and pick up a tag to buy an anonymous Christmas gift for a child.

Details were given when choosing your tag (gender, age). Your gift must be a new, unwrapped gift to the value of £10 (relevant to age picked) and placed in a gift bag with the tag you picked. No money, names, please.


Christmas Eve Jingle

Thursday 24 December
6pm

Calling all children and adults… please join the Christmas Eve Jingle.

On Christmas Eve , we asked everyone to step outside on your doorstep and ring a bell for two minutes to help spread Christmas Cheer, lift our spirits and of course help Santa and his reindeer fly that sleigh!

We appreciate not everyone will be able to participate but those who cannot will hear our bells and know that we are there and they are not alone. It’s the little things that bring the most joy!

F&BV CDT would love for this to become a Fauldhouse tradition, so to help you all join in this year and every year after The Hub is gifted all nursery and primary school children in Fauldhouse their very own bells to ring as loudly as they can!

Fauldhouse Remembrance Sunday Service

Sunday 8th November 2020
1pm

Due to Covid 19 restrictions on gatherings, the Fauldhouse Remembrance Sunday had to be a little different this year. There was no service for the community to attend. We were disappointed, but we did stream a live service on social media via the Fauldhouse Today facebook page (@FauldhouseToday and at @FCDT). The Order of Service is here to view/download.

The War Memorial was tidied up as usual and the flag raised but visitors were asked if they wished to pay their respects and lay a wreath that they please attend throughout the day, bearing in mind social distancing.

Thank you to everyone who took part, particularly to Craig Laird and Robert Russell who made the arrangements and Graham Broughton who kindly streamed the live event for the benefit of the community.
