HOLIDAY CLUB: After the great success of last year's 3 day Summer Holiday Club the Young Adults Group are planning a follow-up this year, hopefully for 5 days, from 24th to 28th July. With over 50 local children attending each day it was a most worthwhile outreach. To put on the Holiday Club will require a lot of helpers both in the activity areas (PVG required) and in the kitchen for the lunch we deliver each day.
