Our next meeting

Tuesday 12th June
LIFE AFTER A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT is the topic of the speaker at our June meeting. No doubt we can all imagine what it must be like to have to spend three days every week on dialysis in order to stay alive.Then that longed for day comes when a kidney transplant becomes available, and suddenly you can start to plan for a better future. Tony Hale will be explaining to us the real difference in so many ways, this made to his life. So please come along to the URC Chapel School Room on TUESDAY 12th JUNE at 7.30pm for what promises to be an interesting learning experience for many of us. Visitors are very welcome.

KNIT and NATTER

If you like knitting or want to learn how to, come along to MALT KILN CAFE at 2.30pm on FRIDAY 1st JUNE and join in. We are knitting poppies for a display later in the year at Brinklow Church and hats for premature babies if you want to take part, or just bring whatever. Even if you can not knit you can join in the chat over a cup of something.
