Winter Social Afternoons St Johns Church Hall 23rd November 2022 at 12.00 – 3.00pm (see below)

Winter Social Afternoons at St Johns Church Hall Since this winter could be a particularly bleak one, we understand that our hall could usefully be a community resource. We are planning “soup & activity” afternoons each Wednesday as an experiment. The programme will develop in the light of experience. The first event will be on Wednesday 16th November. Soup will be available from noon, and games of dominoes will start around 1pm. Tea and coffee will be available throughout the afternoon. Events will end around 3pm.

Rooms for the Ukrainian Families: There are some requests from Ukrainian families for accommodation. Those who are interested in offering them any spare rooms, please let me know about it as soon as possible. Autumn Newsletter I would like to publish the Autumn Newsletter by the middle of November. Those who are interested in contributing to it, please send your writings (only 200 words) before the first week of November.
