OPEN SATURDAY AT TRINITY
A massive thank you once again to all those who helped to make January Open Saturday a success. We have had some lovely compliments from the Hillside Community Allotment, they are very impressed with the event and grateful for the money raised, a huge total of £279.88. As Trinity already support the allotment this won't be matched, but the food costs of £43.80 will be paid from Mission Funds. The Allotment team will be back again in May with a plant stall, and they will also be raising money for Thrive. If you get the chance do take a look at the Allotment and see if you would like to be involved.
FEBRUARY OPEN SATURDAY at Trinity will be for Home for Good, ‘Together we can make a difference for every vulnerable child’.
Saturday 2 February, 11am – 2pm Coffee & Cakes, Bring & Buy & Table Tennis (Jacket potato lunch from 12pm).
Talk to Laura Eades for more information and please sign up on the board in church to help.
Wednesday 27 February, 7.30pm at Trinity
