NEW – Tea & Chat Afternoon

Sadly, support for the monthly coffee morning has dwindled since the recent move to The Barley Mow, Milford, and these are now discontinued.

Please join us if you can and feel free to bring a friend who may be interested in joining the Phoenix Club – meeting dates are Feb 6th, Mar 5th & Apr 2nd. Meg & Robin
