Scam Telephone Calls & Emails

If you receive a telephone call or email from HMRC telling you that you will be taken to Court for failing to pay them, this is a Scam. Please ignore it. Similarly, you may get telephone calls or emails purporting to be from Amazon, BT, Sky or Microsoft about your accounts or saying you will be cut off, these too are more than likely to be a scam. There is a poster in the porch with more information on scams.

We look forward to seeing you at our next coffee morning on Tuesday January 21st 2020, everyone is welcome.
Thank you again, from Ann and Pat.
Thank you to everyone who helped to organise the coffee mornings, this year the coffee mornings have raised £1378.
