BREAKFAST MORNING The Breakfast Morning held at the end of April resulted in a total £ 103. Thanks to Janet, and helpers including Neil who stepped in at the last minute. The next breakfast morning will be on Saturday, 25th June so do come along and treat yourself.
COFFEE AND CAKE MORNING A total of £203 was raised from this event. Thanks to everybody who helped on the day. Also thanks to those people who donated so that the stalls were packed with plants, crafts, books, paintings and cakes. It was disappointing that the morning was not well supported by the community.
VALLEY ART GROUP During our first session in May we tried out some collage techniques, experimenting with various types of papers to create a different type of artwork. The hall provides a good light space for working in all mediums, and if you would like to join us to work there, or to join one of our outside trips for sketching and painting during the summer months please contact Loraine at email@example.com or phone 743577. Weather permitting will be making a return visit to Langford Lakes on June 10th to draw and paint on location.
CRICKET CLUB QUIZ Thanks to Steve Grant and all who helped organize this evening of quiz questions and refreshments in April. A great evening was had by all who took part in the teams.
EASTER BINGO The St. George's Day Bingo saw the hall suitably decorated with an English theme, and the raffle prizes were chosen from English products. A fun evening of bingo together with nibbles and a special raffle was much enjoyed, and thanks to Heather and helpers for putting on this extra session. Money raised amounted to £333.
