Talented youth group members at the craft fair. Chloe makes all the bags herself and is raising money for her school trip away to China. Adrian makes the paper flowers as a passtime and is now making paper dragons as he becomes more skilled.   Kirsty

16-18 August -‘Holiday at Home’

We are grateful to Northbourne School who made us very welcome again, and on Thursday morning we competed against each other in a variety of games and activities. In the afternoon we watched Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines with much laughter and plenty of tea and cake.

On Friday we enjoyed a day at Millet’s Farm. It was warm and sunny. We had a good lunch. Some of us did some useful shopping and some sat in the sun eating ice-cream.   Jenny
