Daffodil Tea – Saturday 23rd February, 10.30am – 1pm

These cheery first signs of spring help us look forward to lighter, warmer days – even if things outside still feel as if winter isn’t planning to leave any time soon!

Join us in the Hall for cream scones, home baking, music, Fairtrade goods, a play area for the young ones and daffodils, of course!

Everyone is welcome to drop in, browse, buy, chat, eat, drink, and stay a while between 10.30am and 1pm on Saturday 23rd February.

A Matter of Opinion – Friday 15th February, 7.30pm

The topic for this meeting in the “A Matter of Opinion” series is David Stow: ‘a sort of amateur teacher’ led by Glenda White.

The far-reaching achievements of a little-known local man: followed by discussion for those who like to discuss and the opportunity just to sit and listen for those prefer it that way.

Friday 15th February at 7.30pm – All welcome – we hope to see you there.

Home to Us All – Saturday 19th January, 10.30-14.00

Come along with family, friends and neighbours to…
A bazaar/fiesta/bonanza in the Church hall involving everyone who meets in this building, which will raise some cash for the building and various good causes but is also a great opportunity to get to know each other better, make friends and enjoy ourselves!

Browse and buy: including delicious home-baking, pre-loved books and music, interesting curiosities and toys and that wonderful stall labelled simply ‘STUFF’…

Compete: some challenges which you may have met before and some which you probably have not!

Refresh and relax: at Joyce’s wonderful tea place with a cuppa and delicious treats.

See you there!
