Jackie, one of the helpers, has agreed to carry on every third and fifth Friday. However, the club will be open on Friday, March 11. Ring 5190582 for information or if you would like to join for a meal.
Lingo Kids is a new venture which teaches French to children from reception class to Year 6 in the Old Schoolroom every Wednesday, the youngest beginning at 4.40pm.

Teachers are experienced specialists, who will promote the love of languages from an early age. Ring 07454383249 for more information.
