August coffee morning

Just a reminder that the August coffee morning will take place next Tuesday, the 19th. It will be in Allison's house which is in the Northern part of Newcastle. You can call Allison for full directions on 01782 561428.

As usual, we'll kick off around 10:30ish and if you can bring a healthy snack to share, all the better. I won't be able to bring the whole library but will bring a selection. If anyone has any books or topics they particularly want to read up on, let me know and I'll bring along anything that is relevant.

We still need volunteers to host and help out with coffee mornings over the next few months. It would be good if we had a range of locations as some people are stuck for transport so can only reach certain areas. Helpers should turn up a little early and help to tidy up after too. Hopefully this will mean its not too much work for the host. The schedule at the moment looks like this:

Tues. 19th August:
Host: Allison (north side of Newcastle)
Helper: Jane

Tues. 16th Sept.
Host: Louise in Congleton
Helper: Volunteer needed.

Tues. 21st Oct.
Host: Volunteer needed.
Helper: Volunteer needed.

Tues. 18th Nov.

Tues. 16th Dec.
