If you would like to attend, or wish more information, please speak to Jane Harrison or Fiona Barnard. (Initial numbers will be limited).
Micah – walk no.4 at Blebo: Now that the days are longer, & the weather milder, perhaps you might fancy a walk? A leaflet is available for one of a series of walks that Anne & Allan have kindly compiled & we’d love to know what you think of walk no.4. Perhaps it will be a solitary walk, or a walk with friends. Either way, we hope you enjoy God’s world & you feel blessed & refreshed. Please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have registered as a potential sponsor for a Ukrainian refugee, or wish to help refugees accommodated locally in other practical ways (e.g. befriending, help with English) please let Jane Harrison know, or email email@example.com. Thank you.
Van for Romania: Donated summer clothes, shoes, bedding etc will be uplifted on 13th June. Please leave any last-minute donations at Allyson’s. Thank you for your generosity.
