Epiphany – 7th Jan.   Another huge turnout representing all sections of the parish enjoyed a Bring and Share Lunch. With dishes ranging from Polish Pierogies to Irish Soda Bread the various origins of Parishioners was well and truly recorded. Thanks to all who attended and or contributed, but a very special thank you to Barbara Blackman who co-ordinated the feast and to the ever present Anne-Marie, Joy and Ruth etc for their help with setting out and tidying up



10th September Parish Picnic & Fun Day

Wow!! What a turnout, and what a feast. Greyfriars simply buzzed with hearty conversation and tables almost groaned with the weight of the food brought by on and all> Foods from a wide range of ethnic quarters provided an amazing choice that tested the brain and the appetite while tickling the taste buds. The mature parishioners sat, ate and conversed. Little opeople toyed with quoits and hoola-hoops – while a mixed aged grouped defied the weather and ventured into the Friary Garden to enjoy bubbles,shuttle-cock and the multi-coloured parachute silk.

Many thanks to all who brought and donated food and especially to Anne-Marie, Anne, Genevieve, Ruth, Jill Pat and to Neil for help setting up and clearing away.
