Pant Autumn Bazaar deemed ‘Success

Pant Autumn Bazaar a success

This year’s Pant Autumn Bazaar, which took place on Saturday 5th October in Pant Memorial Hall, has been deemed a great success as it raised a record amount for the upkeep of the village hall and at the same time brought together a number of local traders.

Pant Autumn Bazaar has always had the dual aim of bringing the community together at an annual event as well as raising funds for the upkeep of the hall.

Locals and visitors enjoying Pant Autumn Bazaar.

This year, the bazaar was held between 2pm and 4pm and during that time locals and visitors came together to browse around the stalls and also to enjoy a cuppa and piece of cake along with a chat with friends and neighbours.

Stalls this year featured wood items turned from local wood, local honey, fresh produce and preserves as well as fundraising stalls for the hall.

Thanks to everyone’s hard work and donations the hall was able to raise over £600 which will be used by the hall to invest in the upkeep of the hall. The support of local businesses in Pant, Oswestry and Welshpool which donated items for the tombola, helped the committee raise such a magnificent amount.


Stallholders at Pant Autumn Bazaar offered a wide range of products.

Over the past few years, the committee that runs the hall has been keen to invest in improvements at the hall to ensure it can stay a vibrant and well used community asset.

According to Shaun, Treasurer at the hall, this year saw the highest amount raised at the bazaar. “We were delighted to raise over £600, which is a magnificent effort on the part of everyone who came along, donated items or had a stall. I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone on behalf of the committee.”

Pant Autumn Bazaar is back!

The bazaar is being held between 2pm and 4pm for locals and visitors alike and will feature stalls from a number of local organisations and charities, as well as refreshments and an opportunity to see the facilities offered in the Hall.

Once again, there will be a wide selection of local craft-makers and businesses offering unique and bespoke products, gifts and cards. The hall itself will be running a tombola, treasure hunt and bookstall, as well as selling bric-a-brac, to help raise funds.

Proceeds from the sale of teas, coffees and cake will also go towards the upkeep of Pant Memorial Hall, which is a registered charity and a valuable asset for the community.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of visitors and stallholders, Pant Autumn Bazaar raised over £600 and, just as importantly, villagers had the opportunity to meet up and enjoy a ‘cuppa’ and a chat.

Donation drop off for books, bric-a-brac and tombola prizes takes place on Friday 4th October from 7pm to 8pm and all contributions are appreciated.

Pant Autumn Bazaar Success

This year’s Pant Autumn Bazaar took place on Saturday 6th October in Pant Memorial Hall and was a great success, bringing the community together and raising over £570 for the upkeep of the hall, which is a registered charity.

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2017

The bazaar, now in its fourth year, was held between 2pm and 4pm and saw more visitors than ever. It featured stalls from a number of local organisations and charities, as well as refreshments and an opportunity to see the facilities offered in the Hall.

For the first time at this year’s bazaar, the hall was selling hot snacks fresh from its newly installed electric oven – a selling point for anyone looking to hire the hall for a party or event.

There was also a bring-a-photo exhibition and those attending were invited to bring along a photo or two on the theme of ‘local history and people’. The aim was to showcase the village and those who live there to create a fascinating display for everyone to enjoy.

Once again, there was a wide selection of local craft-makers and businesses offering unique and bespoke products, gifts and cards. As well as a plant stall and local produce, such as cakes, pumpkins, honey and preserves, there were complementary therapies on offer.

The hall itself was running a tombola and bargain bookstall, as well as selling bric-a-brac, to help raise funds. Proceeds from the sale of hot snacks, teas, coffees and cake go towards the upkeep of Pant Memorial Hall, which is a registered charity and a valuable asset for the community.

Shaun Fisher, Hall Treasurer, said: “We would like to thank everyone who came along on the day for making this year’s bazaar the biggest and best yet. We would also like to thank the local businesses that donated prizes, the stallholders who filled the hall and of course the hard-working volunteers who made it all happen. We were delighted with the amount of money raised and we look forward to building on this success in 2019.”

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2016

It’s summer, but not too early to think about Pant Autumn Bazaar!

It might be hot at the moment, but it’s time to start thinking about Pant Autumn Bazaar.

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2016Yes, we know it is only just summer, but volunteers are already being sought to build on the success of last year’s Pant Autumn Bazaar.

Organised by Pant Memorial Hall, the Bazaar is now in it’s fourth year and aims to bring local people together in the village hall while raising vital funds for the upkeep of the hall.

Everyone in the village is welcome to become part of the organising group for the Bazaar – you don’t need to be a regular hall user – so that all views and ideas are represented.

The first meeting will be held in Pant Memorial Hall at 7pm on Tuesday 24th July and new ideas for activities during the Bazaar will be most welcome.

In previous years, the Bazaar – which takes place on the first Saturday afternoon in October – has featured a range of local stalls selling items from local honey to soap and plants, a tombola to raise funds for the hall and tea and cake. This year, the hall committee is keen that villagers let them know of any suggestions that will improve the event further.

Said Shaun Fisher, treasurer at the hall: “Over the past couple of years we have been investing in the hall to improve it for villagers and the Autumn Bazaar is a major fundraising activity that helps us keep it going. We are looking forward to putting on another successful event and to welcoming as many villagers as possible.”

If you want to attend the planning meeting, there’s no need to book, just turn up to find out more and see how you can contribute.

Once plans for the Bazaar have been finalised, you will be able to find details on the Pant Today website as well as at www.pantmemorialhall.org.uk.

Third Pant Autumn Bazaar deemed a success

Pant Autumn Bazaar held on Saturday 7 October this year raised more than £450 towards the upkeep of Pant Memorial Hall and saw over 170 people attend.

The Bazaar, was supported by a number of local stallholders and charities including Oswestry Country Markets, local Pant beekeepers Chris and Jayne, the Restore the Montgomery Canal campaign and Cae Post. These stalls were joined by a number of individuals and stalls organised by volunteers from Pant Memorial Hall.

Pant Memorial Hall was founded as a resource for all the people of Pant and the Autumn Bazaar was an ideal opportunity to showcase its facilities as a community hall in North Shropshire and a focal point for the village.

Thanks to the generosity of individuals and local businesses, the Memorial Hall was able to raise over £450, which will go towards the maintenance of the hall.

Speaking about the event, Helen, Secretary of the committee said: “The Memorial Hall is an asset for the whole village and we are grateful for all the hard work put in by the committee and local businesses to make this year’s Bazaar a success. Among many sponsors and donors, the Cross Guns Inn donated a meal, Cambrian Heritage Railway donated a free train trip and lots of Oswestry businesses donated prizes to the tombola which all meant we could raise over £450 for the hall. We’d like to thank everyone who made the event such a success again this year.”

The committee at Pant Memorial Hall will be considering whether to hold a similar event in 2018 but in the meanwhile will be looking at the possibility of putting on more events in future.

Not long until Pant Autumn Bazaar!

This year’s Pant Autumn Bazaar takes place on Saturday, 7th October 2017.

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2016The bazaar takes place from 2pm to 5pm, and will build on the success of the last two bazaars, with a mixture of stalls from local craftspeople, activities for children and stalls raising funds for the Memorial Hall. The organisers hope that the success of the previous events, which saw hundreds of people from Pant and the surrounding area come to the hall, will be repeated.

Stallholders will include a wide selection of local craft-makers and businesses, offering a unique opportunity to find bespoke products and a wonderful opportunity for an early spot of Christmas shopping.

Donated items wanted by Pant Memorial Hall

Organisers of this year’s Pant Autumn Bazaar are asking local residents if they have any bric a brac items that they could donate to Pant Memorial Hall.

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2016Plans are well underway for the bazaar in the Memorial Hall, with stalls from a variety of local businesses and charities. The event is the main fundraiser for the hall and, this year, organisers are hoping that a bric a brac stall will help raise vital funds.

Local people with any table top sized items that they are willing to donate to the hall can drop them off on Friday 29th September between 7pm and 8 pm as volunteers from the Memorial Hall will be on hand to accept them.

During the evening of 29th September, volunteers will also be in the hall to give it a late Spring Clean in advance of the bazaar. All are welcome to come along for a cuppa and a chat while helping get the hall as spic and span as possible for its annual showcase event.

This year will be the third year that Pant Autumn Bazaar has taken place and organisers from the Memorial Hall are hoping that the event will prove popular with locals and visitors alike.

As well as a number of craft stalls, a tombola and bric a brac sale, the bazaar is a great opportunity for local people to get together and enjoy a cuppa and slice of cake, with plenty of tables and chairs this year for a sit down and a chat. As well as promoting local craftmakers and businesses, and raising funds for the hall, the bazaar also aims to provide an enjoyable social event for the village.

Any items left over after the bazaar will be retained for future events or donated to charity.

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2016

Date set for third Pant Autumn Bazaar

Note the date: Saturday, 7th October 2017 sees the third Pant Autumn Bazaar taking place in Pant Memorial Hall.

Pant Memorial Hall has been the venue for an Autumn Bazaar for the past two years and the committee of Pant Memorial Hall have agreed to hold the third Pant Autumn Bazaar this October.

The previous two Bazaars attracted a good turnout and proved to be significant fundraising events for Pant’s village hall.

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2016To be held on the first Saturday of October, from 2pm to 5pm, organisers hope that the success of the previous events, which saw hundreds of people from Pant and the surrounding area come to the hall, will be repeated. The Bazaar in 2017 will build on the success of the last two bazaars, with a mixture of stalls from local craftspeople, stalls raising funds for the Memorial Hall and a continued focus on activities for children.

Currently, plans for the Bazaar are well underway and many of the stalls have already been allocated but it might still be possible to accommodate new stallholders. If you are interested, please get in touch with us using our contact form.

Stallholders will include a wide selection of local craft-makers and businesses, offering a unique opportunity to find bespoke products and a wonderful opportunity for an early spot of Christmas shopping. From cakes to candles and cards to crafts, once again there will be something for everyone and plenty to look at and buy. A tombola will take place and there will be a children’s corner with games and other activities for kids.

Upkeep of Pant Memorial hall costs several thousand pounds each year and the Bazaar is an important way of raising much needed funds, for repairs and other investment in the hall.

Pant Memorial Hall AGM 2017

Date set for Pant Memorial Hall AGM.

The Annual General Meeting of Pant Memorial Hall takes place on Thursday 16th March 2017 at 7pm and is open to everyone in the village.

Pant Memorial Hall - main hall for hire

The AGM is a very important meeting for the hall as it reviews the financial status of Pant Memorial Institute, the organisation that runs the hall for the benefit of the local community.

The AGM also elects officers and a committee to oversee activities at the hall for the forthcoming year.

This year is particularly important as the committee has looked at the roles of each of the officers and is proposing amendments to the roles to make thing simpler and to encourage villagers to step up to the positions of secretary, treasurer and chair.

The AGM is open to all and is a very informal event. For those who haven’t been to a Pant Memorial Hall AGM before, the meeting is a great opportunity to have a look round this important community asset and well as getting involved in the community.

At the AGM you will be able to find out about future plans for the hall and, if you are interested, find out how you could get involved with the running of the hall. The Memorial Hall is managed by a voluntary committee which is always keen to encourage more villagers to both use the hall and to get involved in its running.

For the past two years, the committee has organised the Pant Autumn Bazaar, which has been very successful and raised important funds for the upkeep of the hall. One of the issues to be discussed at the committee meeting that will follow the AGM is whether to hold an Autumn Bazaar in 2017 and villagers’ thoughts on this will be much appreciated.

Tea and coffee will be available.

Pant Autumn Bazaar raises £500

More than £500 was raised at this year’s Pant Autumn Bazaar for the upkeep of Pant’s Memorial Hall.

The event saw villagers and visitors coming together in Pant Memorial Hall to raise over £500 at Pant Autumn Bazaar, which goes towards the upkeep of the hall. More than 150 visitors came along to visit stalls including Oswestry Country Markets, Sweeney Hall Hotel, local Pant beekeepers Chris and Jayne and Derwen College, as well as enjoying a number of fundraising activities put on by the Memorial Hall committee members.

Pant Autumn Bazaar 2016

2016 is the second year that Pant Autumn Bazaar has been held and it saw an increase in funds raised for the Memorial Hall.

The committee that run and maintain the hall for the benefit of the people of Pant and surrounding area are keen to put on new events for the village and keep the hall at the forefront of the local community.

The hall was set up by local Pant people after the First World War as a memorial to those who suffered in the war and the community organises events to bring people together. This includes an annual ‘Time of Remembrance’ – for those killed in the two World Wars and recent conflicts, which is open to all.

This year, the remembrance service will be held in the hall at 7pm on Friday 11th November 2016.

One of the key aims of the committee of Pant Memorial Hall is to ensure that the hall remains a focus for activity in the village and the funds raised by the Pant Autumn Bazaar go towards maintaining and upgrading the facilities for all.

Local businesses in Oswestry and further afield provided tombola prizes and Pant Memorial Hall wishes to thank all of them for their generosity.
