New members on the committee would be most welcome and we are always open to new ideas. We have held 6 Saturday coffee mornings this year again and have raised £560 for church funds through the coffee mornings and Wednesday evening meetings. The AGM will be followed by a faith supper, so please come along and if you could bring a small plate of food to share, that would be much appreciated.

Wednesday 7 November:
‘English and Welsh Waterways’, a presentation by Mr John Holroyde

Wednesday 5 December:
Christmas Celebration and Supper.

The next Saturday coffee mornings from 9.30 a.m. to 11.30 a.m. to be held by the Circle are on 13 October and 8 December. Please come along and enjoy a cake and a cuppa. There is usually a cakes and preserves stall, for which contributions are welcome!
