Easter is just around the corner now and we still have plenty of Real Easter eggs and Divine Popcorn eggs for sale.

The small packs of Divine mini eggs are particularly popular and I am expecting to sell out of those ahead of Easter.

The Real Easter Sharing Eggs have also been popular but the date for ordering them has now gone.

As usual we will be closed Good Friday and Easter Monday but we will be open Easter Saturday and there will be Simnel Cake and Easter Eggs Nests! Also for the next three weeks we are running an Easter Meal Deal for Children: a mini pizza, a box drink and an ice lolly for £3.50 and an Easter Colouring Competition: pick a colouring sheet from our selection at the till, it is 20p to enter and one lucky winner will win a Real Easter Egg.

Make & Bake for the Under 5’s. We had a great time this term with a core attendance of around 10 children but more came each week. We were able to present each child with a bible society book called “The Super Cool Story of Jesus” on the last session before the Easter break and it was very well received. We are already working on craft and bakes for after Easter so if you are crafty and want to be involved we’d love you to get in touch.

Calling all Knitters. A project our Craft Group has just got involved with is knitting little hats for Innocent Smoothie Bottles. It may sound crazy but every winter Innocent adorn their smoothie bottles with hats and for each hat wearing bottle sold they give a donation to Age Uk. We love Age Uk and so we will be supporting this by being a collection point for the hats. We do also have a selection of patterns printed for people to pick up. The deadline for bringing them in is the morning of 28th June 2017. Happy Knitting!

This month’s Special Hot Meal will be Turkey and Cranberry Ring, served at 12.30pm on 26th April.

As usual, Mandy will be here in the Morning from Age UK with her information stand, so drop in beforehand to find out what Age UK are doing in the area.

Do remember to contact us to book in advance.

God bless,
