    Do something positive for Lent

    This year's Lent Group is based on the theme of 'Migration and
    Movement'.  The first session is on Wednesday 17th February, starting at 7:30pm in the Mews. The theme for the session is 'Nowhere to lay his head'.  All are welcome.


    Are you willing to hold a small scale fundraising event in your home this year? For example a coffee morning, a book exchange, cheese and wine, cocktail party or a ‘bring & buy’ including preserves and jams. This can be at a time and date to suit you. We would help you to do the preparation and tidy up. Please let me know if you have any ideas. Carole Sweet
