3.  ‘Meet and Mingle’

Many of you will have read in ‘Talkabout’ for last November about the Christian survey highlighting the level of alone-ness and isolation in our society.  We are delighted to announce that our initiative towards doing something about this locally is gaining momentum.  Volunteers have stepped forward and we are planning to launch ‘Meet and Mingle’ on Monday 2nd March (and the first Monday of every month thereafter.)  We will meet in St Mary’s church hall from 12.30 pm to 2.00 pm to share a homemade lunch and conversation.  Registration is required for Health and safety requirements and for catering, but any information will be kept private.  If you know someone new to the area or living alone please share the details with them and come along with them.  For further information or to register, please contact Wendy Fogerty or Bev Crapper
