The year is rushing along, and soon it will be October. Then our Winter Soup Lunch programme will start up again.

The first lunch of the season will be on Monday (yes, we are back to Mondays again!) 2nd October at Escot Village Hall.

This lunch will be hosted by John Masters for the Melanesian Mission. It will follow the same format as usual - homemade soup plus a bread roll, seasonal desert, and tea or coffee - for a suggested donation of £5. It will be served between 12 and 2pm and a room draw will also be held.

We look forward to seeing you at this lunch, and please tell your friends about it.
