Many thanks to all who donated to the Tombola land those who helped at Stall and in the Bar. Total raised was £576, with £451 from the stall.    

Good for the Lodge to be seen as a part of a huge community effort, which received tremendous support from local people despite very wet conditions.
Thanks again, have a good summer.

Donations of prizes for the Tombola would be welcomed as would food donations to the Tea Room - and, crucially, offers of help from Ladies to serve.
