Durham Miners’ Gala, 9 July 2016

This year’s Miners’ Gala is on Saturday 9 July, and as usual we will be selling refreshments to raise money for charity. If you can help on the day itself, or with preparations beforehand, please sign up on the list at the back of church.

We are also looking for contributions of quiche and of cakes. Please sign up on the list if you can help, so we will have some idea of how much we may need to buy.

And, of course, if you are visiting the Gala, do drop in to our little oasis of peace and (relative) quiet!
