Our January Brunch was well attended and so successful that we had to send out for more bacon! It was good to see regular and new faces, all making for a relaxed, convivial atmosphere. We made a profit of £184.00- thank you all who supported us and all our willing volunteers.
In February, as usual we shall be celebrating Shrove Tuesday, February 25th, with Pancakes Galore at the Village Hall from 12 noon until 4.00pm. There will be a range of toppings on offer as well as teas, coffees, soft drinks, and a cake stall. Children will find some interesting things to do in the Children’s corner. Do come and treat yourselves.
Looking to the future, on March 14th our annual Folk and Friends concert will take place in the church- look out for the posters and fliers nearer the time. Refreshments will be served.
Beeston Hall School choir and musicians will be holding their concert at All Saints Gresham on Wednesday March 25th, starting at 7.00pm. The young people put on a marvellous show last year and we are so glad they have chosen to return. Again, refreshments will be served.
There will be no charge for either of these concerts, although of course donations would be welcome.
Otherwise, we continue to prepare to start to deliver the programme of works and events outlined in our bid. More news next month.
