What we did (and hoped to do) in 2020

Sadly, because of Covid, we had to cancel just about everything. So no excursions and we cannot use the Church Centre until further notice. Mo is working very hard to keep everybody in touch via the "newsletter". All contributions and suggestions for that welcome!
