Introducing Pop-Ins

We are creating a list of occasional helpers called the Village Hall Pop-Ins; these will be people who could help with maintenance on an ad-hoc basis.   To get this started we holding three “pop-in maintenance mornings” for a hall Spring Clean.  These will be from 9am on Wednesday 27th Friday 29th and Saturday 30th April.  If you can spare a little time that week it will be a productive but fun time with free Coffee and maybe even a biscuit!

If you would like to join us for this or become a “Pop-in”, please pop Deb Tull a message on debtull22@outlook.com.
