A farewell party to say ‘goodbye’ to the Ladybirds Playgroup saw children past and present enjoy its facilities and a picnic. Closure of the playgroup after some 40 years is because no new committee members came forward to take over running it. So the morning Parent & Toddler sessions have ended. The committee members have agreed to stay on to keep the Pre-school sessions running on Tuesday afternoons from 12.50-2.45pm at the Sure Start centre. If you have any questions or queries, please contact Emma on 07506 880425 or by e-mail at email@example.com
Had a mixed day, weather wise, for their show on Saturday 19th July with heavy showers and the sun shining for short periods. However, it was nice and dry inside “All Saints’ Church”, Beckingham and the lovely, friendly, relaxed atmosphere, gave visitors a good excuse to linger over the appetising refreshments! The show was very well supported and the entries were of a high standard.
On the 4th August 1914, the UK declared war on Germany and its allies and thus began the First World War, a conflict that touched every family, affected every community and fundamentally altered the country’s place in the world.
For the July meeting members were invited to the garden of member, Monica Marsh with a touch of memories of World War One when some ladies wore attire of the time. The Roll Call was a flower. Members were informed of a Fashion Show on Friday 13th March next year. They were also asked for help when members will be hosting a Coffee Morning for the MacMillan Nurses. This will be in Sturton Village Hall on Friday 26th September. A most enjoyable tea of jelly and fruit with home-made cake had been prepared by members of the committee. The raffle was won by Jeanne Ingamells and the competition for a fan was won by Doreen Hancock and Janet Cliff.
Mr P. Jackson will take the service on Sunday 3rd August.
Last week’s speaker was Roger Ferguson from L.I.V.E.S. who gave a very interesting and enlightening talk on the work of the organisation, from start to present day, including the new social scheme. The next meeting will be on Thursday 4th September, which will be an outing to Dobbie’s Garden Centre, leaving at 9.30am. Contact Jean Morley on 839343 for information.
A morning service is held every Sunday in Lea Methodist Church at 10.30am.
