Alton Webteam: January 2016
The film "Paddington" was voted a hit by everyone! All of us who viewed it have fond memories of Michael Bond's original stories of the accident-prone little bear from Peru and this new screen version didn't disappoint. Grateful thanks are due to Keith for acting as our projectionist. Our tea after the film was especially delicious as we were the lucky recipients of three cakes donated by the Friday Market as a "thank you" to the church.
At our Christmas Tea we took a collection for the Anna Chaplaincy Fund and the sum of £60.40 was raised.
Our next meeting is on Saturday 13th February.
