Dates for your Diary

Coffee morning

Tuesday 21st January 2020
If you would like to come to our coffee mornings for a chat, laugh, cuppa or even a bargain in our bring and buy sale or for a game of bingo you will be made very welcome. We look forward to seeing you there.

Prisoner Outreach

Grateful thanks to all who have been bringing in their bits of Loose Change over the last few months. A total of £315 has been raised in the last 10 months. The Daily Bible Reading Books that are given to people in Prison make a huge difference to them. Please keep up your generous support. All donations of any amount – however small –  are very much appreciated.

Pensioner’s Christmas Dinner

We are most grateful for all the hard work put in by those who helped to organise the dinner and made it such a success.  The meal was fantastic and the children from the school entertained the pensioners with some Carols. A big thank you to the ladies group who organised the Bingo Night and the coffee mornings, the money raised from these events purchased many of the items needed for the dinner.
