What is this thing called loss?

Loss impacts on all of us at different times in our lives.
How we react to loss depends on our life experiences and,
as we all know, this is different for everyone.

Would you like to come along to a small informal group
to look together at loss in its many guises?
The group will meet for six sessions between June and September.
We already have six people who are interested;
if you would like to join us, please contact Sue Mellor.

Milnthorpe Art Exhibition
    Thursday 1st–Sunday 4th August

Catering and Stewarding volunteers needed.


Thursday 1st–Sunday 4th August, 10.00 am–6.00 pm.

Two-hour shifts.

Without the generosity of time and baking skills of many
(I have to say, mostly ladies!)
the catering for the exhibition would not be possible.
This part of the exhibition is greatly appreciated equally
by the many visitors and the organisers.
I will put the usual lists in St Thomas’ church centre
for you to sign if you can help with serving refreshments
during the exhibition and for providing cake.
If you are able to help it would be gratefully appreciated.
Please fill in the list or contact me,
Val Robson.


Wednesday 31st July–Sunday 4th August, 10.00 am–7.00 pm.

Two-hour shifts.

This year I'm also overseeing the stewarding for the exhibition.
All that is required is that you take this great opportunity
to come and sit amongst the beautiful works of art
for a couple of hours at a time. You can

  • smile and say hello to people and make sure all is well,
  • ensure that no-one runs off with the art, and
  • ponder over life’s mysteries.

If you would like to sell raffle tickets, all you have to do is… sell raffle tickets.
How about selling catalogues …?
It’s a great chance to meet and greet people – just like at Asda!

All of these are on two-hourly shifts. We in the catering dept will lovingly bring you a cup of tea or coffee.

If you would like to help please contact me, Val Robson.
We aren’t ageist or sexist; please put your name down for catering or stewarding or both.
