World’s biggest coffee morning
As in previous years we will be holding a coffee morning in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support as part of the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday September 30th. in St. Mark’s Church Hall, Wellwood Street, Amble between 10.00am and 12 noon.
Over the last 20 years, the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning has grown into one of the most successful fundraising events in the world.
In 2010 alone, over £8 million was raised, and every penny of that money is now being used to provide better cancer care for more people in this region and around the UK.
2011 is the 100th anniversary of the formation of Macmillan and it would be good to mark it by making this year’s coffee morning the biggest ever.
So we need your support. Donations would be very welcome for the Tombola stall, raffle prizes, cake stall and of course it would be good to see as many people as possible at our event on Friday 30th September. For more information you can contact George or Irene on 01665 711010.

In May this year I was honoured to be invited to the Naming and Dedication service for the new inshore lifeboat. It was very special for me considering I am no longer a Councillor. The fact that someone went to the trouble of sending my name to Manchester, where the invite came from was a lovely thought. These events do not happen all that often and as far as I could see may not happen again in my life time, one cannot be sure.
Although the weather wasn’t good, it was a smashing day. The buffet was excellent and old friends and new gathered there for the afternoon.
May I say”Thank you very much” to the Lifeboat Association for the chance to be part of the day and for all their efforts.

Donations to Autumn Club
I would like to say thank you to the Amble business people who donated money vouchers to enable the Autumn Club to have a meal out at “The Coach” Lesbury.
They are Northcut, Jaspers and Harbour Fish Bar.
I run a prize-bingo on a Tuesday afternoon in St. Oswald’s Court, about thirty members, the oldest being 104yrs!

Punch bag amnesty
The new Circuit Training group are looking for any old but useable punch bags that are stored in your garage/loft etc that you want to get rid of. If you have a punch bag, or any old equipment(not weight benches etc) that you don’t want and that we could use, then ring us or drop us a text on 07707 718 049 and we will even come and pick them up from you.
Ladies, if your bloke bought a punch bag to ‘keep fit’ years ago but the biggest sweat he broke was getting it out of the box and he hasn’t touched it since, but he keeps saying he ‘will get round to it’ but you want it cleared so you can have the space, we offer a totally secret pick up service so he will never know it’s gone…..! Thanks for your support.
Bruce Durham, Amble
