Thank you to everyone who came to support our coffee morning.

It was lovely to see everyone and delighted that some of our old members of staff came to say hello.

Thank you to everyone who donated home baking, it was delicious and much appreciated.

Congratulations to all our raffle winners including Margaret, our nursing support assistant who won the delicious chocolate cake donated and made by Kat McInness.
