Hi <<First Name>>

Our Children's Nearly New Sale went very well. Possibly our best ever with a queue right down to the entrance. Lots of customers got some great bargains. The sellers were really pleased with the amount of customers. The Snack Bar and the Coffee Shop also had plenty of customers. All in all it was a great event and we raised over £400 to put towards our new chairs.

So if you came to the sale or had a table, thank you very much!

Note that all of the tables for our next sale on 12th October have been sold and paid for already. That's another date for your diary.

Don't you just love this weather! Gloves and hats on again. There was snow on the field a few days ago. Will there be any more wintry weather?

Is that an Easter bunny? Whatever the weather this month and over the Easter Holidays, you will get a warm welcome in the Coffee Shop. Don't forget Coffee Shop is open longer hours for the Easter Holidays. From Monday, 8th April to Monday, 22nd April it will be open from 10am to 5pm every day except for Easter Sunday, 21st April when it will be closed all day.

Read the community news below about bicycles and another polling day.... and some activity group news.
