Christmas Supper at the Abingdon Arms Tuesday 12 December

Starting at 7p.m for 7.30 seating, Aimee and Stuart assure a warm welcome for up to 28 people at two long tables in the dining room; they need to know numbers by mid November.  Their bookings policy is that "people pay 25%  of the cost five days in advance, this is redeemed against the final bill.  Cancellations made 24 hours before, or on the day will incur the full cost of the meal ".  Vegetarian option for the main course is Celeriac Pithivier.  There can be a  special dish for vegans.  Call or email Judy Bushrod to make the booking.

Come and Sing in the Church!

We have an offer from a professional singing teacher, Stephanie Pirrie, of a full morning singing workshop in the Beckley church (most likely a Saturday morning) which we hope can be held as soon as possible.  The cost of the workshop would be approximately £20 per person.  This could, if we get support for the idea, lead to regular singing (perhaps one evening a week?) to be led either by a professional teacher or y members of the group.

Do come and sing in our beautiful church!  Quite apart from being fun, it is, I'm told, good for mental and physical health!  

If you are interested, and the oppotunity is open to anyone,not just those in Beckley and Stowood, please pass this on to friends) send an email to Susy Jepson susy.jepson@gmail.com.  When we have gathered names, we will set a date with Stephanie Pirrie and let you all know.
