Coffee Morning

Friday 31 March at 10.30 in Langham Community Centre. Everyone is welcome, and refreshments are being provided by Langham WI. There will be the usual 100 club draw and book stall.

This is Langham WI’s last event before the group disperses, so it would be good to have plenty of people.
The group had to ‘suspend’ as it finally, comprehensively, ran out of people for the committee, which had been running on delayed retirements for a couple of years. Suspension means county are holding the group funds for three years in case another WI starts up in Langham.
