Poplars Pantry gets a makeover
You may have noticed that we have reconfigured the layout to the seating area in Poplars Pantry. We’ve installed more comfy sofas, added new seat pads to our chairs and replaced our old pine tables with modern new ones. The new layout provides more room between the tables and greater flexibility too.
It looks like the NSPCC will be better off to the tune of more than £1500 after the final totals from Santa’s Grotto have been added up. £1 from every child that visited Santa is being donated to this excellent charity. Our Keech Cottage collecting boxes were bursting with coins following the sale of Christmas bells and ribbons. Finally Flitwick Vale Rotary club collected over £400 when they came to visit with their float and elves last month. Thank you for your generosity.
