Hospitality Sunday

Over a few Sundays in October, a number of people from TUC will open their homes for lunch. This will be a chance to get to know each other a little better! Most people are hosting lunch on Sunday 28 October, but a few people are hosting lunch, or dinner, on different Sundays in October. There are sign up sheets in the foyer for each host, including the date of their meal. If you'd like to come along, simply put your name down on the list with your chosen host. Your host will contact you with further information. Please be in touch with Wendy for more information: wendy.g.browne@gmail.com

Did you hear that the guy who invented fairy bread died…?
