Cathy is stepping down after many years supporting the association especially is the area of catering.

We need  new Committee members , so if you would like to contribute something to the running of the Association, please contact Chris ( or come to the AGM and seek nomination. This is also your chance to have your say or make suggestions on how we can improve the Association.

Murder Mystery Play - 7th May

The Murder Mystery play was a welcome return to somewhat ordinary times as the impact of Covid on everyday life begins to diminish. This was our first substantial event since January 2020.

Many thanks to PADS (Purton Amateur Dramatic Society) for providing the Murder Mystery play and to Cathy and her helpers for providing the catering. The evening was a success with 85 guests at some 14 tables.
