    Sunday Lunch

    We had a very enjoyable lunch which was beautifully prepared and our thanks to all who did the cooking. It was a lot of work, but everyone had a good time. We raised an amazing £366 for the church funds, largely because many of the ingredients of the lunch were donated. Our thanks to the very generous folk who gave their time, energy and produce.
