Coffee Morning Date Correction

Please note that in the current edition of The Way, it indicates that there is a Coffee Morning on Saturday the 16th September. This is incorrect so please ignore! Our monthly Coffee Mornings take place on the second Saturday of each month and so the next one will be on the 14th October. Apologies for any confusion.

Last week’s Macmillan Coffee Morning raised a total of £320 for that very good cause. Thank you to all who came, donated, helped or baked lovely cakes!
