Circles Coffee Morning – 21st March

Last weeks Circles Coffee Morning was a great opportunity for members and non-members to find out more about all our different activities. The team at Larte did a good job of the set up despite the rain.

Many thanks to Hayat, Jackie, and Josephine for organising, and Lisa for collecting memberships & making sure everyone was registered. Thank you to the Circle Leaders for all the effort they put into their circles year round!
