If you do have your own gardening gloves, please could you bring them as we only have limited numbers.

Urgent Appeal for the food bank.

Our next foodbank collection is this Sunday they are in urgent need of the following:

Sponge puddings critical

Others items they are in need of are Small jars of coffee, Razors, Toiletries, Fish and Christmas treats, but please be aware mince pies have a very short date, At the moment they have lots of pasta.


The Foodbank is happy to accept anything that can be spared. They are under pressure now with the free school meals vouchers for the school holidays which they have taken on, Cathy and Ann have been busy packing up family boxes to help that particular cause.
