RESULTS UPDATE - MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING: Margaret writes “The weather was kind after a very uncertain week, the sun shone and the garden was filled with people enjoying coffee cake and chat, it was great!

Thanks must also go to our friends for the loan of gazebos, chairs and tables setting up and clearing away, lots of hard work but worth it”
