Come and enjoy a typical summer’s afternoon tea and listen to some restful background music.
This is your last chance to have a summer tea until 2019, so don’t miss it!

The celebration will take place from 3.30 – 5.30 pm, so there will be plenty of time to eat, to enjoy a chat, to listen to the music and to test your general knowledge with a table quiz. Quiz questions will be distributed among the tables so you will be able to make up a team, or “go it alone” or “give it a miss.” The choice is yours.

We also have some tempting raffle prizes.

Tickets available price £5 from Margaret Cooper or Heather Taplin at St Luke’s Office, 01223 311136. They will also be available in all of our churches

This event is taking up the challenge of the St Luke’s Talent Scheme and will be offering a chance for fun and fundraising.

After the Silence at 11.00 am we hope you will join the walk to place a poppy at a number of these memorials. This year we will particularly remember the thirteen men who died in the Great War Battles of 1918 and later, from injuries, in 1919.
