You can shed tears that she is gone
Or you can smile because she has lived
Your heart can be empty because you can’t see her
Or you can be full of the friendship that you shared
You can remember her and only that she is gone
Or you can cherish her memory and let it live on
You can close your mind, be empty and turn your back
Or you can do what she would want: smile, open your eyes, love and go on.

Friday Coffee Morning
We could do with a few more volunteers to expand the Duty Rota of those making and serving the coffee/tea and toast.
At the moment duty comes around every 4 weeks, but more volunteers (2 working together) would make it much less often.
Elders needed – we now have two vacancies and would
welcome enquires from anyone interested in joining the team.
Please speak to Brenda Bakes if you would like to find out more.
Future Events – all fundraising suggestions considered.
