Our speaker in September was Simon Gledhill, from St Martha’s Church in Broxtowe, talking about work in the community, including the Food Bank. Also it also means sitting talking to anyone who calls into the building about their problems and getting further advice if necessary, which is great quality time for lonely or anxious folk.
Our members brought a wonderful selection of items for the Food Bank, which were very gratefully received. If anyone would like to donate items, they can be left behind the font in St Swithun’s Church.
Suggestions of suitable food; tinned meats(meat balls/curry/hot dogs/meat pies etc) UHT milk, squash, tinned vegetables (not baked beans or potatoes – they have a good supply of those), cereals, tea, coffee. No fresh food please. Any of these products will be very much appreciated. Thank you.
On October 4th, 8pm in the Institute our speaker will be Paul Berrisford (a village resident). He is a member of Rotary, who for the last 20 years have been involved with “Outward Bound”, arranging holidays for deprived children in Holland and this country. We look forward to hearing about this valuable work.
The Crafty Chatters
A new craft group has been set up in Lowdham, meeting every Friday, 1.00pm till 4.30pm in the W.I. Hall, Lowdham.
Sessions cost £3 which includes tea/coffee and biscuits/cake. We would like crafters from all disciplines to come along and enjoy an afternoon chatting and crafting.
For those who sew we’ll have a sewing machine or two and an ironing board, knitters bring your needles and crocheters bring your hooks, colourers bring a pencil sharpener and ruggers bring your frames.
It will be a great opportunity to share knowledge and pick up tips, plus you might get inspiration to try a new craft! Open to all ages and all crafters. Phone Jane Waite 07985293351 or 01159 664907 if you have any questions.
