Here are the details of how to have a chance to win a 'one-off,' hand made, necklace and earring set worth hundreds of pounds.  The jewellery consists of a matching suite of a 9ct gold, oval sapphire and cubic zirconia pendant and stud earrings. The pendant is supported by an 18" 9ct gold fine neck chain. 

George Hempshall ('George the Jeweller' of the Hills) has very generously donated the jewellery set to Bradda Dads.  We are holding a Valentine's raffle for one lucky ticket holder to win the jewellery set with all proceeds going to Bradda Dads.  We are very grateful to George for gifting this wonderful jewellery to us for the eventual benefit of the village.

Here are some photographs of the jewellery that, as you can see, are presented in some beautiful wooden cases.  Please note, the prize consists of the necklace in its own case and a pair of matching earrings in its own case.

12th Pensioners' Christmas Lunch

The 12th annual pensioners lunch took place on Wednesday 5th December 2012.  Around 130 attended and enjoyed cottage pie, carrots, peas and Yorkshire pud.  The weather was kind, cold, but sunny.  Thanks again to everyone involved including the infant and junior school children who sang festive songs.
High Peak Radio's Becky Cassidy visited to see what the Bradda Dads Pensioners' Lunch is all about.  She recorded the junior school singers and interviewed Phil Granby and Betty Bradwell.  Becky was still at the Methodist Hall at 2.45pm but somehow managed to put together a lovely feature about the event including an interview with Bradda Dad Jonathan Morgan.  The feature was broadcast several times during the afternoon.
