Every couple of months we have what we call “Drop in for a Drink”. This month it’s on Thursday 11th, at the Fiveways pub as usual, on Macclesfield Road, by the Fiveways lights. And it’s simply that – an invitation to all and sundry to pop in for a drink and a chat at some point in the evening – anytime from 7.30 onwards. It’s always a lovely friendly gathering – a chance to make new friends from church, or perhaps catch up with old ones. Do come along, even if you’re not a regular at Norbury – all are very welcome!
On 10th August we invite you to our Afternoon Tea with Bring and Buy stall and Raffle in the Legh Room, two till four pm. Tickets £2 from Faith Clarke.
