ST MARY’S CHURCH, BETTWS-Y-CRWYN
Many thanks to Gill Binks, who hosted the April Coffee Morning on a day when Spring seemed finally to have arrived. The results of the 100 club draw were: 1st Diana Lavers, 2nd Lisa Gilby, 3rd Peter & Mary Salmon.
Valerie and Richard Whately are transforming the June Coffee Morning into an Afternoon Tea and we are all invited to celebrate the Summer Solstice at Quabbs Cottage on Saturday June 23rd from 1 to 5 pm. It will be a stylish occasion with scones, cakes and strawberries served on vintage crockery and the cost will be £4 per person, children half price. We look forward to the Bettws putting Ascot into the shade as everyone turns up in their summer best.
A date for your diary: on Saturday 29th September at 7.30 pm at Newcastle Community Centre the Ynysowen Male Voice Choir from Aberfan will be singing in aid of the Air Ambulance and Hope House Hospice, with support from Bettws Ladies Choir and other local performers. The Bar will be open and refreshments will be available. Please keep the evening free for this worthy cause.
Flowers and Cleaning for June: Thelma Davies and Margaret Garfitt.
