Just a short note this time around, to say that I hope you enjoy this edition of the newsletter, and to say a HUGE “thank-you” to Toni for preparing this every fortnight.
For those of you who use the Internet, I encourage you to “like” and follow our Facebook page as well, because we share information there too that you might find interesting.
No special events this fortnight; our usual range of wonderful groups and activities keeps going though, so please take a moment to check them out and join in anything that interests you.
And remember to say “hi” next time you’re in the House. EUNICE.
