Look out for our “bird watching and nature church” on Sunday 17th May
at 7.45am. We will be meeting outside St. Ippolyts Church for a short walk around St. Ippolyts looking for spring migrants and resident birds that should be in full swing rearing their young. Michael Hooper who will point out as many bird species as possible will lead the group. Do you think we can see over 25 species? Of course we can! It is expected the one-mile walk will last about 75 minutes and will finish back at the church. Everyone, young or not so young, is welcome to join us.
We will be serving our Lent Lunches of delicious home-made soups and fresh bread every Wednesday from Ash Wednesday, 26th February till
8th April from 12.45pm. till 2.00pm. Serving time 12.45pm. till 1.00pm. A minimum donation of £2.50 per serving is requested, with donations for seconds. Proceeds will be shared between USPG and the Motor Neurone Disease Association. Everyone welcome so do come and join us.
