What have the Social Committee been up to? Well, we have enjoyed supporting the Friends of Holy Trinity with the refreshments at the concerts. And when the re-ordering campaign was launched to the business community by Andrew Mitchell MP and The Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands, Mr Paul Sabapathy CBE, we were called on to do the refreshments and light lunch.
We organised a Quiz with Fish & Chip supper for Harvest, with the Routh family setting the questions, successfully raising £150 for 'Cherished'. We cooked hot dogs for Messy church - that went down very well with adults as well as the children.
One thing hasn’t happened for the saddest of reasons. Toby Norris, who has featured in some of our Christmas productions, approached us and told us he believed the lights would be going out on 15th January. He asked if we would like him to do a talk for the church on Nuclear power. We thought it was an excellent idea so we arranged date for a cheese and wine evening with Toby giving his talk. Tragically he was diagnosed with cancer and passed away within a few weeks - he will be sadly missed.
Going forward, we're arranging a trip to see Cinderella at the Lichfield Garrick Theatre. And as the current season of Friends concerts unfolds, we’ll be there in the background - supporting with refreshments!
