Easter is on the way — so it must be time for Lent Lunches in Chawton!
To refresh your memory — every week in Lent, someone in Chawton will host a simple 'soup lunch' in aid of their chosen charity and it's always a very friendly occasion.
This year my Lent Lunch is on Saturday 24th March (the last LL this year, so don't miss it!) any time between 12 and 2pm. We anticipate a very happy time and all in a very good cause — Action for Children.
I chose the last date so that the daffodils would be in full flower — just hope they won't be over!
Offers of help would be greatly appreciated.
