St Breward Luncheon Club

After 13 years with the Luncheon Club, Lee Brattle will be retiring after the July Luncheon Club to spend more time on grand children duties

The Luncheon Club are looking for a new leader; this is an exciting opportunity to lead a happy team who shop, prepare, cook, serve and clear away at the monthly Luncheon Club held at the Football Club on the third Tuesday of the month.

The Leader of the Luncheon Club has overall responsibility, the Club has a Secretary and a Treasurer – being a cook is an advantage but not a necessity

Membership of the Luncheon Club is open to over 55’s living in the Parish of St Breward, with approximately 55 people attending the monthly Lunch. For more information please contact Lee Brattle 01208 851252

The Luncheon Club would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to Judith Nance on her retirement from the Luncheon Club, she has been with the Club for twelve years as a Helper and then Treasurer.  Lee and all the Members are grateful for her help and dedication which has been much appreciated

Baby & Toddler Group

With regret I’m deeply saddened to inform you that Caroline and Myself have decided to close the doors of St Breward Baby and Toddler Group.

Unfortunately since September our numbers have dwindled and we don’t have many younger members on the books to keep us running. Unfortunately financially we can not keep running on such low numbers. I have been a member for 51/2 years and my youngest is about to start preschool so it a natural end for me to finish my post as secretary.

Caroline cannot continue to run the Playgroup without support or with such low numbers so has decided it’s the right time to retire from the Playgroup after 25 years. She plans to continue helping and being involved with Messy Church.  Caroline and myself have other commitments over the summer so have decided the final session will be the 11th June.

However if anyone maybe willing to-continue running the Playgroup or has any other thoughts or ideas, the insurance is valid until March 2019 and Caroline would offer any support needed after the summer.

Some of the toys will remain at the Village Hall to be used for messy church or if anyone wants to use them for a party’s or events at the Hall. Anything else will be donated or sold.  If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything please feel free to call myself or Caroline.

On the 11th June, I am organising a Morning tea and play to help Celebrate Caroline’s achievement and commitment to the group over the 25 years. It would be lovely to see any members past or present or anyone who would like to join us to celebrate her retirement please let me know if you plan to attend so I can organise the Catering. Call, text or email me on 07800 549254  kernowjess@gmail.com
