Main Hall Decoration
We are pleased to announce that the main hall will undergo some re-decoration during week commencing Monday 22nd July. We anticipate this will only take a week. During the week, table tennis and badminton have been cancelled but all other activities, including the coffee morning on 27th July. will continue as normal. We hope this does not cause too much inconvenience but we are looking forward to a fresh 'look'.
Coffee Mornings are held on most Saturday mornings from 10am to 11.30am, helping to raise funds for local charitable causes. Contact Sheila Swinbank on 01729 850458 if you wish to book a coffee morning during 2019. There are not many slots left. The next planned coffee mornings are being run as follows:
