This Friday, 21st June, due to the amount of work we have with Summer Fair and Family Fun Day, regrettably we had to cancel the weekly Retired People's Lunch Club. Also, we will not be selling Thai food at the cafe this weekend. There will be a variety of foods available from food stalls at the fair, 11am-6pm on Saturday. Apologies for any disappointment.
