Jim’s Advent Retreat.

 

Sadly the St Annes and Elswick Advent retreat at Bassenthwaite has had to be cancelled Instead Jim is organising Advent Retreat – version 2!

 

Staycations are all the range now so take time out to relax and reflect on the meaning of Christmas with friends and sleep in your own bed at night.

For full details see the flyer in the porch or notice in the Hall.

 

Help Needed!

 

We need a Door Steward for November 19th and/or 26th. If you could cover one or both of those dates please see Marion.

Thanks.
