Just a reminder about our fifth annual Christmas Bazaar which will be held on Saturday, December 16, in the Loftus Hall commencing at 5.30 p.m. As in previous years this has been a great success and we will be looking for Bakers to provide us with some beautiful cakes, buns etc. for this event. We will also be asking local businesses to help us by giving us some sponsorship towards the Bazaar. All proceeds raised will go towards our local North West Hospice. Please join us at this event and help spread the Christmas Spirit.
