Coffee Morning – May 2024

As usual we will be having our next coffee morning on the first Sunday of this month, which is 5th May, starting at 10am. Refreshments and cake will be available until midday. We look forward to seeing you there!

We have been told by some members that they are not always able to come to the coffee mornings as they have other commitments on a Sunday morning. So, at the last committee meeting it was agreed we will have a second session each month which will be on the third Sunday of the month in the afternoons, from 2 til 4pm.

This would make the May date as 19th, however, this is the date we have already planned to have our AGM, so our first Afternoon Tea session will be 16th June 2024. There will be more information about the AGM being circulated very shortly, please make a note of the date in the meantime. It will start at 11am with refreshments available from 10am.

A note about the prices for refreshments, we have decided to revise the charges and in future a slice of cake will cost £1.50 and tea and coffee will still be 50 pence per mug. (A fraction of the price compared to most tea rooms!)

New Mower

We are very pleased to announce that we have been able to purchase a new mower to replace our old mower which we had had since 2010 when we first came to be on this site. The old mower had served us very well but it had come to the end of its working life and was beyond repair. We appealed to our local Councillor, Stephen Scoffham for funding and through him, the District Council was able to provide funding for the full cost of the mower. We are extremely grateful to Stephen for his support which means we will be able to keep all the paths in and around the site mowed, neat and tidy and safe for everybody to use. Thank you Stephen.
