With the recent re-decoration all but finished by the time you read this; it is now time to make plans to enjoy the ‘new-feel building’. The Jubilee Room looks fresh and inviting and the wooden floor in the large hall has responded well to a great deal of TLC. We are now onto the hallway and having a Big Clearout! Hopefully you will have space in your diaries to come and check out the changes at our ‘Quiz and Curry ‘evening on Saturday 5 October. Ring Margaret (01423 359961) or Veronica (01423 862478) to book your place.

If you are in Starbeck on 28 September don’t forget the Joint Autumn Fayre we will be part of at Starbeck Church – and bring your cycling friends too, on their way to the Women’s Elite Road Race World Championship final.

In September we are re-starting the Friendship Club which previously ran successfully for many years. Our first session will be on Thursday 5 Sept 2pm – 3.30pm and we aim to run initially on the first Thursday of each month. The initiative is one of many to try and combat loneliness in our society, especially in the immediate area, but is open to anyone who wants to be friendly! Please ring Ann (01423 860128) if you know of anyone who may benefit from coming, or to find out more details.
