Over Exposed… an illustrated chat with Celeb Photographer Dave King

Urgent Notice – Due to unforeseen circumstances “Over Exposed” Chat is postponed

Dave King’s beloved dog Morrissey had to be put down unexpectedly due to cancer.

Dave has requested we therefore postpone the proposed “Over Exposed” chat for a new date yet to be confirmed in early 2020.

We fully understand the unexpected death of his pet has knocked him and his partner Jo for six at this moment in time and we are very sympathetic for their loss.

We are of course more than happy to postpone the talk on Sunday.

What does this mean for all ticket holders – those that have bought tickets via either the Post Office or the Tea Room are requested to either hold on to them until we are able to confirm a new date or if they prefer take them back the venue they purchased them from and exchange them for a full refund.

This can be done from Friday 4th October until Friday 18th October, thereafter we will assume you are hanging onto them for the new rescheduled date.

Those purchased on line will be emailed asking them to confirm whether they would like a refund or hang on to the ticket for a new date as soon as we know one. Refunds will be made when requested and subject to the payment app processing them.

The online draw will be frozen until we have a new date and reactivated nearer the rescheduled date and those already entered will be carried over to the new date and the draw will then happen at the rescheduled event.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and promise as soon as we have a rescheduled date we will publish it.

UPDATE: We have secured from Dave the chance to have your very own photoshoot…

Why not win the chance via our dedicated fundraising page…

It has taken well over two years of cajoling and discussions with Yalding resident Dave King to finally now say this event will take place on Sunday October 6th 2019.

Dave will be showing us a selection of his photographs of celebrities that he has taken pictures of in a career spanning some 30 plus years. There is always a back story behind each photograph and we are sure this will be a truly amusing and entertaining event. He will also reveal just some of the trials and tribulations of also being a co founder Yalding’s own music festival  “The Vicars Picnic”.

Tickets can be reserved online by completing the form below – we will then send you an online invoice with a  payment link to pay for your tickets by debit or credit card (N.B. This will need to be done within 24 hours of receipt to confirm your places) we then request you just bring the payment confirmation email sent to you as proof of purchase. (Hard copy or phone email will suffice)

Alternatively you can purchase physical tickets direct from Tim Chapman (a trustee) at Yalding Post Office or via The Village Tea Room.

Please make sure you do purchase early as we expect this to be a sell out event and there will be very limited tickets available on the door

Tickets: £8.00 per person

Tickets on the door: £10 per person (subject to availability)

(Audio Loop for hard of hearing is also available)

Lot 4 – A ‘Hari Covert’ meal for twelve persons

A stalwart supporter of YCPS Hari has agreed to host your very own private “Secret Supperclub” event at his secret local location.

Following a welcome drink and nibbles on arrival  you will be served a special four course meal served to your select group of guests.

Hari  is something of a man of mystery, some might say an “enigma” but he just loves to cook his unique style of food. He has cooked in a cheese cellar and even cooked for royalty.

He cooked locally for a double gold Olympic medal winner and even managed to rise to the YCPS challenge of serving a dinner on the church roof in the summer of 2012.

This is your chance to host your very own special dinner. All you need to do is supply your own drinks to have with the meal. Glasses, Ice Buckets and water Hari will happily provide.

(The estimated value of this item is £420)

A card is not just for Christmas…

The summer sun has faded and autumn has begun in earnest… thoughts could even begin to gravitate towards Christmas.

YCPS has come up with an interesting way to raise much-needed funds for ongoing and future projects in the parish church and at the same time we hope you will be able to bring some festive cheer to friends, family and loved ones: in fact just about anyone…

We have set up a special account with a website called Charitecards so that for an annual subscription (you decide the amount) you can send any number of e-greetings cards for one annual subscription.

You can even build your own special Christmas card and then send to all your friends worldwide for a fraction of the cost… and at the same time you will be  giving valuable support to our lovely and historic local church.

Forgotten a birthday or a loved one on a special day? Then send them an e-greetings card – nothing could be simpler.

Just click the logo and register today… it is that simple…if you are a UK taxpayer please gift aid it as well as this will ensure we can earn even more.

Thank you…
