On Saturday 16th November crowds poured into the Church Hall for our Winter Coffee Morning which raised a record £576. In addition Membership Secretary, Beryl Thomas, took £375 in subscriptions and was delighted to recruit two new members.
All the money raised goes towards meeting the running costs of the Museum. As Sue Amor, our Treasurer, who had the task of adding up the money, said: ‘It was hard work, but I think we can give ourselves 10/10 for effort’.
We are very grateful to everyone who worked so hard to make the morning a success. Thanks go to all those who contributed items and those who came to buy them as well as to the stallholders, the washers-up, Paul and Lynn Euden and Julia Arntsen for the loan of her coffee machine!
For the record the breakdown of the total of £576 is: Books £60, Bric-à-brac £78, Cakes £106, Coffee £60, Raffle £115, Shop/cards £137, Silent Auction £20.
