Lent Lunch in Chawton
Easter is very early this year so I chose a late March date to make sure the daffs were out — of course, most of them are out, even dying off, but the soup will be hot and the welcome as warm as ever.
Date: Saturday 12th March
Time: any time between 12noon and 2pm
Place: Carlyle Cottage, Wolfs Lane, Chawton — 01420 86602.
This is always a happy time of food and friendship and all donations will go to "Action for Children".
Offers of help would be gratefully received.
