    Our Church will again be a refreshment stop for the garden visitors and Nicole would like to ask for your help with this. Last time we had far more people than was expected and Dorothy who helped Nicole, didn’t even get away to see any gardens!  So this time she would like to have 3 or 4 others who could do an hour each (from 12.30 to 5.30) of making/serving tea and selling programmes.  Also we will need home-made cakes to serve.  The Church will get a £100 donation from the organisers for our efforts.  There will be a display entitled Bible Gardens in the Church.
    All offers of help to Nicole Long please.
