  Thanks to Simon Holloway for a very enjoyable and informative talk about Cyprus

 - its history, its people, its customs and its scenery.  The photographs, projected onto

   a big screen, were beautiful and Simon, who has lived on Cyprus, was able to give       
   us a really good insight to Life on the island.  

£85 was donated to this year's Charity - ARC - Axminster recovery thru' Counselling.

                                amazing organist & pianist

                          Thanks to The Watermead Stranglers for giving up their evening to

                                    entertain in St. Peter's on Wednesday 12th September.

                                                    for Children's Hospice Southwest.

       This was the first of our Evening Coffee/Wine Concerts and as it proved to be successful, 

     we hope to have another after Christmas with the Somerset Group  "One Foot in the Groove"
