COMMUNITY CAFÉ

With great regret David and Judith find it necessary to discontinue running the café.  It has been a wonderful asset, enjoyed by church members as well as the local community, for over 4 years.  Our sincere thanks go to all who have contributed in any way – both in running or supporting it for the benefit of St Basil’s.  Thank you Judith and David for all your hard work and the delicious food. If anyone would like to take up the baton from Judith and David and run a café on Monday lunchtimes at St Godwald’s please speak to them or Christine, Pat or Caroline.
