  • Hospitality Team

    Serving tea and cakes at monthly meetings requires a team of helpers to work with Di Latter. Di has a list of volunteers who help on a roster basis, but she always needs more especially when people drop out at the last minute. A list was put up at the Open Afternoon and several members added their names, but unfortunately it disappeared during the tidying up at the end of the afternoon.

    If you put your name on the list, or would be prepared to help now and again please contact Di Latter.
