'Fridays' at the Memorial Hall
'Fridays' at Downton Memorial Hall continues and is growing in popularity. On the last Friday morning of the month, from 10am - 12 noon, the hall turns into a cafe serving drinks and home-made cakes - with a bring and share stall for seedlings, garden flowers, vegetables or fruit. The book share is also well used - bring a book that you have finished and/or have a browse and take one away.
Thanks go to all the cake bakers - contributions are always much appreciated. The plan is to store any left overs in the freezer but so far that hasn't happened!
The event is made possible by those who help - eg by clearing tables, putting tables and chairs away, washing pots and sweeping floors - and thanks go to all these volunteers too.
Donations to cover the costs are welcome - the surplus is being saved to pay for a special event later in the year...watch this space.
The organisers look forward to seeing you over the summer on May 27, June 24, July 29 and August 26.
