Closure of Sunday Club at All Hallows: it is with great sadness that Helen Render has to inform all concerned that Sunday Club will not be taking place from now on. Unfortunately, due to lack of children and also teachers/helpers she has had to make the regrettable decision to close this small, but worthwhile club. She would like to thank everyone who has been involved over the years and encourage younger members of the parish and families to attend the All Age Worship at All Hallows every second Sunday in the month, where there awaits a warm welcome.
Welcome Packs: have you recently moved to Bardsey or East Keswick? If so, would you like a welcome pack to help you get to know more about our villages. The pack for Bardsey is available from the back of All Hallows and for East Keswick give Gaynor Anning a ring on 01937 572890. They are well thought out and packed full with useful information.
Good Companions: I find it quite amazing at the small number of ladies and gentleman who go along and enjoy the friendship and companionship of this group. They meet alternate Tuesdays in the Callister Hall from 2-4pm. Some play whist and dominoes and others enjoy lively conversation. They are all young at heart and welcome new members, pop in and give them a try. They will arrange a lift if necessary. For more information contact Gill Thackeray on 0113 2892264.
