WE watched the weather forecast with much optimism and we were fortunately rewarded!

The storms did not affect our enjoyment on Saturday when we had, for the first time, a Community Barbecue in the beautiful surroundings of Malvern St James Dome Gardens.

All who came said what a treat it had been and how much they enjoyed it. The children were able to play games and run off some excess energy and we were delighted that our friends from Community Action could be with us and enjoy food and a chat with everyone. The entertainment was first class, provided by Malvern’s excellent Lounge Toad . Our grateful thanks to Malvern St James. We raised £135 for Christ Church Roof Fund!
