Lent starts tomorrow, 6 March, and we have a splendid programme of Lent Soup Lunches scheduled in all sorts of different places. These will all be held between 12 noon and 2.00pm and everyone is welcome to a shared time of good company and excellent home-made soup. All we ask is that you make a donation in aid of our two chosen charities and, if possible, telephone your hostess beforehand to help with numbers and catering. This year we are concentrating on small charities who do a wonderful job of helping people with various needs. The Cart Shed (which we supported last year) is a local organisation based in Norton Canon which supports people who are stressed in various ways, including ex service veterans, by organising outdoor activities and crafts. The Kitchen Table Charities Trust supports small overseas charities involved in providing clean water and sanitation and the training of midwives and health assistants among other things.
Pat Millington will be giving an Illustrated Talk entitled ‘Postcards around Weobley’ at 2.30pm on Thursday 24 January at St Thomas’ Parish Room, Weobley. Tickets cost £6.50 to include afternoon tea. Tickets are limited, and selling out fast, so please contact Pat soon if you would like to buy one (319330).
