Christmas Fair

Come along to our Christmas Fair on the 26th November. Pic up some Christmas presents, relax in our café and know that you have helped feed someone this Christmas.


Fun Run 2015

Cllr Stuart Emmerson had mapped the Fun Run for June. I was translating this into a document that could be handed out to the participants to show where to run etc.

After a few mistakes and concerns that I was telling people to turn left, when I meant turn right. I decided to go out and walk the route myself.

I mapped the walk so that I could report how long the run is…..

Well 10.47K (6.5 miles)  and 1 hour 57 minutes later, I was sitting in front of William Morris Gallery….. knackered!! A bruised left heel and chafing. If I said I was walking like John Wayne, you’ll guess exactly where I chafed!

As many of you may know, I am also on a sponsored slim for Eat or Heat. I was sitting there eyeing the Five Star fish and chip shop wondering if I should just have a bag of chips as a reward. You’ll be pleased to know, I resisted the temptation.

I urge you all to sign up to our Fun Run

I am supremely unfit and I managed it in just under two hours. I’m sure you all can do better than me and have a good laugh while doing it.

Look forward to seeing you all there.


Eat or Heat Sponsored Slim

Hi everyone

I will start my diet from Monday 6th April 2015 and continue to Friday 25th September 2015. My only goal is to lose as much weight as I can, (sensibly), by the end date. This is where I will publish my weekly weight loss.

Help me lose weight and at the same time help us feed those in need in our local community.

Go to for a sponsorship form

If you have overdone it recently and feel like you need to shed a few pounds, why not take part in our Sponsored Slim?
You can turn your unwanted pounds in to cash for Eat or Heat by asking your friends and family to sponsor you for the weight you lose.

You don’t even have to publish your weight, just your loss!

Just follow the simple steps below:
●        Decide how much weight you want to lose and by when. Be realistic!
●        Tell all your friends and family and ask them to support you in your goals
●        Download a sponsorship form here
●        Ask your friends and family to sponsor you and raise money for Eat or Heat
