If you have checked the events calendar will you see that we are spoilt for choice today but if you plan it wisely you can enjoy some time at each of them.

I popped down to the Community Centre earlier & met some lovely people selling a variety of goodies. There is also a BBQ, live music & a visit from Dominic Grieve MP. Here are some photos from earlier on.

Tuesday was the opening of Cafe Thames in Oakfield Road, a much needed addition to the community in my opinion & on Tuesday evening, The Bounty played host to some Morris Dancing.  (Thank you to Anne Jirsch for these amusing Morris Dancers!)
