EC. Coffee morning at Giselle’s:
The snowdrops and hellebores are coming on well so I am having a coffee morning on February 24th from 10 to 12 as I did last year, in Peter’s memory, so people can enjoy the winter garden he so lovingly made. There will be a cake stall too. Do come and invite any friends who would enjoy it. The donations will go to East Cottingwith church, some of it to buy flowers for the Flower Festival planned to celebrate the end of the 1st world war. Orchard House Storwood YO42 4TG. Tel 017590 318650.

B. Lent Message
The Archbishop of York is encouraging us to use the upcoming season of Lent as a time to reflect and refocus their lives through daily reflections available from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday.

W. Fete Plant Stall
As you begin your spring garden tidy up please remember the fete plant stall, if you have any plants that you do not want then pass them onto Paul Botting or if you want plant pots to grow them on for the stall please ask

W. Mothering Sunday & Easter Flowers
If anyone would like to buy a lily for the Easter arrangement in memory of someone, then contact Paul Botting.
