A big thank you to all that attended the Easter Eggstravaganza yesterday. Despite having to move indoors the event was very well attended and everyone seemed happy with their chocolate and all the fun and games involved. A very big thank you to all those that helped make the event a success - Sue, Adrian, Fay, Mu, Paul and Jo for fetching the gazebos (even though we didn't use them in the end). Also thanks to the local Sainsburys store on Morley St, Thorntons Chocolates, and Adrian Pegg for supplying us with Easter Eggs for the event.

We look forward to your support at our future fundraising events, including our Quiz Night, which takes place on Friday 23rd February at the Lonny WIlsoncroft Community Centre on Stepping Lane
