Building Fund News 

Advanced notice of December events. 

On Saturday December 1st there will be a flower arranging demonstration ‘Floral Inspirations’ by Mary Western.  She is a very well-known demonstrator and even if you are   not an arranger yourself, the evening promises to be exciting and full of great ideas.

On  Friday  December 7th we  are  very privileged  to  have Nia  who  is a  highly  acclaimed Christian  folk  singer.  She will   be singing a wide range of songs including a Christmas selection.

On Friday December 14th there will be a concert by ‘One Accord’.  The choir came earlier in the year and we were rather disappointed by audience numbers as they were one of the best mixed – voiced we have had.  Please don’t miss out this time.

Book all the dates in your diary and make sure you view the posters for times and prices.

Thanks Tina
