There are more fundraising opportunities coming up. Special Church Christmas cards are available in All Saints church or from Alison Hannah (861261).
Also the next Coffee and Cake afternoon will be held in the Church Rooms on Friday 8 December between 1.30pm and 4.30pm. Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy a tasty treat with friends
