Thursday Club

Jackie Visser of the Kingsbridge Food Bank came to talk to us on 8th February.  South Milton already provides a great deal of support for this charity in the form of volunteers to sort and deliver food as well as fundraising.  Jackie's informative and passionate talk described how the team worked together to provide essentials for the many people who need help in these difficult times for many different reasons - and it's not just food they need but sometimes household goods as well.    People's needs are wide-ranging and the team at the Food Bank have to rise to the challenge.  It was humbling to hear Jackie's talk.

In March, David Curry from Exeter Diocese Environment will give us talk on 'Hotspot Churches on the South Devon B-Line' which is all about connecting the network of B-Lines - supporting a multi-partner project to restore viable populations of some of the UK’s rarest invertebrates and plants living along the South Devon coast between Berry Head and Wembury, including the last known colony of the Six-banded nomad bee. These B-lines would allow species to move freely through our countryside, expand their populations and recolonise areas from where they have been lost and churchyards have been identified as highly suitable areas.

It has been wonderful to see so many people at the last few meetings and we all hope that this trend will continue as Thursday Club needs support if it is to continue.  For those of you who feel the cold, please be assured that keeping the heating on during meetings will be a priority during the winter months!       

Everyone is welcome to our meetings - feel free to bring a friend or two!  £3.00 per person plus £1 for a raffle ticket.  Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements.
