A Pancake Feast to raise more funds! Plus Lottery winning numbers

Apart from the Village Cinema screenings coming up (see our posts about that) we have a rolling programme of other fundraising events. Next on the horizon is a Pancake Feast and Beetle Drive, a bit of lighthearted entertainment to coincide with Shrove Tuesday.

The cost is just £3 and that includes your first pancake free. Don’t miss it! Phone 01485 540271 to reserve a ticket, or pay on the door. The fun starts at 6.30pm on Tuesday 28th February.
