Lyn Bernstone: February 2019
The SOS group (Sometimes On Sundays) have started arranging a social event on the 8th of June. It is for our minister Rev. Helen Kirk and husband Andrew as they approach their leaving date to take up her new appointment as Chair of the Chester & Stoke-on-Trent District . This is likely to be mid-July.
For the 8th June, we have booked Stoke Mandeville community centre, Eskdale Road, along with the field. Weather permitting we will have a BBQ, fingers crossed! The event will involve the whole circuit beginning at around 5pm.
These are just the basics for now, to get the date in people's diaries.
