A comic investigation into an 80s childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems.

“It’s 1986. I am eight years old.

Prince Andrew and Fergie get married in the summer. Dirty Den serves Angie divorce papers on Christmas Day. And I’m sharing my bedroom with a KitKat-pinching ghost.”

Inspired by his favourite film, little Gareth became a self-appointed Ghostbuster, launching an investigation into a playful poltergeist. Now, three decades later, with the help of home videos, retro toys and interviews with his nearest and dearest, grown-up Gareth is determined to uncover what was really going on inside his very own haunted house.

Join us for a nostalgic trip back to the 80s and a comic exploration of a childhood haunting where nothing is quite what it seems — all wrapped up in some formidable fashions, stuffed with sweet treats and set to a cheese-tastic chart-topping soundtrack.

QVH Matters from issue 374 of the Queniborough Gazette

Queniborough Village Hall Matters

First published on 15 June 2018. The Queniborough Gazette is our community newspaper and is delivered free to all residents.

Chairman’s Review of the year

When I took over from Mike Bunn in May last year it was with a little trepidation. He had successfully run the team for several years albeit with one little break. That trepidation soon disappeared because I quickly realised that it is the team not the Chairman that actually makes things happen.

Our meetings are fast paced and lively, suggestions flow from all quarters and decisions are taken on a democratic basis after everybody has had their say. Not all agree to everything but everybody works hard to make any decision taken, a reality. Everybody on the team has a role to play and they play it wonderfully well.

The amount and breadth of the events that we put on is truly remarkable.

Welcome to a wet but hopefully now sunny and warm QVH Matters

Our AGM is fast approaching. This is the time of the year when all our officers tender their resignations and new officers are elected. We also open up the floor to new members. It will be held at the Village Hall on Wednesday May 9th beginning at 7.00pm and will be followed by our next regular meeting. Tea and biscuits will be available if you’d like to come along.

Next Events at the Hall
Our next event is our highly popular Junior Roller Disco (bring your own skates) hosted by the wonderful Paul Kirton-Smith. We will be holding it at the Hall on Sunday May 13th between 2.00pm and 4.00pm. Tickets are £5 and are available from Mandy Grainger or Liz Ellis. Remember, just like the popular supermarket, get in early because once they’re gone they’re gone!

Further down the line put the 7th July in your diary which is the date we have set aside for our ‘Summer Family Barbecue and Disco’. We are also choosing three more Live and Local shows but more on that when we have the details.

QVH Matters from issue 372 of the Queniborough Gazette

Queniborough Village Hall Matters

First published in March 2018. The Queniborough Gazette is our community newspaper and is delivered free to all residents.

Welcome to a wintry March QVH Matters

We couldn’t survive without the money we raise from events and the donations we receive from wonderful people. So, first on my list today is a huge, huge thank-you to Tim Lowe and his team for putting on a fabulous Beer Festival. Charities to benefit from the hard work undertaken by Tim’s team included the Dystonia Society and the Queniborough Village Hall Appeal. There was a record attendance, all beer glasses were sold and it was a hugely successful event. I suspect that there were a few headaches in play the following mornings (including mine). Thanks again Tim and Team.
