Not the European Song Contest Quiz Night

Everyone is very welcome. Friends, neighbours, acquaintances and any other category of person that you might create are all invited. 

It remains the remarkably unreasonably good value of £5.00 per person including a Fish & Chips supper (or sausage or veggie burger as an alternative) provided by our friends at the Sawston Fish & Chip emporium.

Please let Steve Munday know (either by emailing Munday5@aol.com or seeing him in person on a forthcoming Sunday) if you are coming, how many places you want to reserve and what food you want.
Date: Christian Aid week 15th to 21st May 2016.
Volunteer collectors needed, please see Linda. Everything necessary (apart from collectors) will be with the Christian Aid packs. There is a presentation on 21st April (same date as our Church Meeting) in St Mary's Pavilion at 7.30pm, speaker is Marie Lucchetta, all are welcome, and there will be tea and cakes.
