July 2017

 

June has been busy and seems to have flown by.  Ten children from Belarus thoroughly enjoyed themselves and it was an honour to play a tiny part in such an enriching experience for them.  Then 22 rainbows!!  I think they enjoyed their hands-on time and we were very pleased to receive a donation from them.

Horses

Better news on this front.  Archie is in light work and is now trained to the hoist.  Merlin – new last week – is settling in well.

  • My coffee morning on Wednesday 5th July, 22 Fore Street.  Cakes, raffles and nearly new stall.
