Alton Webteam: June 2016
At our May meeting we had a double helping of Normas!
First, CAMEO member Norma Barton gave us a fascinating account of her work as an Alton Street Pastor. The Pastors are out and about every Saturday night, their aim being to take God's love to the streets and show it in practical ways. Norma has the honour of being the "Senior Member" of the team.
After a break for tea and cake, Norma Duke told us about a photography project in which she's involved and which members of CAMEO might take part in later in the year.
Our June meeting was held at the Allen Gallery where we enjoyed afternoon tea and a stroll in the lovely garden.
