We had a great time!

teasWe had a great time at Cosgrove Church at the weekend – Baptism, flowers, history, signing the Birthday Card and teas – of course!

If you missed it – come next time we have a “do”. You’re always welcome!

Cosgrove Church is open every day during daylight hours. The Candle exhibition and some of the displays will be there for a few days yet if you want to candles4come and see it.

There’s still time to come to our last History talk for 2016 which is on Thursday May 5th at 7.30 and is about our map evidence from the 19th century – sounds boring but there are stories and jokes!
