It is with great sadness I have to inform you that three of our beloved members have died over the summer.
Joan Ransome at the begining of the holidays and this Weekend Marjorie John on Friday and Vera Walker on Monday.
All have supported and without them this place would never have happened.
"May they rest in peace and rise in glory!"
Our prayers and thoughts are with their families and friends at this sad time, they will be missed by all who knew and loved them.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
