At the time of writing the snowdrops are lining the paths and driveway of the church – which looks lovely

Soon there will be primroses too, together with daffodils, which are already peeping out of the earth, as we look forward to the new life that Spring brings.

The Quiz and Hot Pot Supper on Saturday January 21st. It was a huge success.

Delphine writes:

Thank you to all who took part, and to the committee members who made delicious food, gave raffle prizes etc. Particular thanks to Chris and Dick for great questions and an excellent Picture round. Ben Christie’s Music round kept us all guessing with TV theme tunes. It was a fun filled evening with a lovely atmosphere.

The Parish Hall gained £716.45 from this highly successful event.

 Last month I mentioned that we are planning a return of the monthly Coffee Mornings.  I put in a plea for volunteers too. I cannot say that we have been inundated with offers, but I live in hope. As I said before it is particularly nice if coffee mornings hosted by newcomers to Bettws, and these are usually well attended. Proceeds are divided between the church and church hall.

There will not be one in March – because those who farm are enmeshed in lambing, but look out for posters for one in April.

Best wishes – Valerie
