St Martin’s Sunday Club Newsletter – Autumn Term 2018
Welcome back, we hope you all had a great summer break.
On Saturday 21st July 37 adults and children went to The Bluebell Railway for our summer outing. It was wonderful to travel all together by double decker bus again. The children had great fun on the huge steam trains and then a good run around in the park area. Everyone enjoyed and appreciated the packed lunch provided by the Church. The weather was kind to us and it really was a lovely day out.
On Sunday mornings, during the summer break, the children were kept occupied with origami and sewing activities as well as the usual quiet toys that are always available.
Please tell your friends about the great activities that we do, and the fun that we have in Sunday Club, and encourage them to come along and join us.
