Families had fun at the Crewkerne Branch of Royal British Legion coffee and crafts morning, held in the George Reynolds Centre. Various crafts were prepared by Sandie Smith, the Branch Community Support representative to keep children busy and other members helped the youngsters to make masks, origami tanks, paper flowers, cards, paper parachutes and pom-pom ice creams. The popular sugar modelling activity with Viv from Viv’s Vision Cakes saw the youngsters creating their own penguins and polar bears to take home.
Crewkerne Mayor Kathy Head called in for coffee and cake and commented that it was a lovely idea to hold the event during the summer holidays. Branch Secretary Alice Samuel said: “We raised £62.45 which was a bonus because we just wanted families to come along and enjoy the morning. I would like to thank all the children and parents, RBL members and our Mayor Kathy for calling in. A big thank you to Sandie and the other members who run these coffee mornings so successfully.” The next RBL coffee morning at the GRC is on Wednesday September 11th from 10.30 am until 12.30 pm. Everyone is welcome, you don’t need to be a RBL member to attend.
