ILLNESS - Please see Julie or any member of the committee if you know of any of our members who may need our support.

COMMITTEE - 4 members of the committee are stepping down so we are hoping for people who wish to contribute to the running of our group to come forward. We meet once a month for an hour at the Methodist Church Hall for a catch up and an exchange of ideas, followed by optional tea and biscuits. Any further involvement is then up to each committee member.
Our next committee meeting is on Wednesday 10th October at 7.30. If anyone would like to come along to observe they would be most welcome.

SALES TABLE – The result of the vote on which charity to support with the proceeds from the sales table were: Clatterbridge Cancer 16 votes, Charles Thompson Mission 12 votes, Northern Lights 6 votes, Village Hall Ness 3 votes.
A cheque for £250 was sent to the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity who received it with many thanks.
Thanks to all the members for supporting the sales table.
Especial thanks to Dee for all her hard work.
