Little London Community Day

Little London Community Day

After an absence of many years the Little London Community Day was resurrected last weekend. Organised over a short time period with many local organisations and individuals involved, the day was a resounding success. Caring Together was involved from the beginning and on the day hosted a cake stall. Many thanks to those Caring Together members and supporters who baked cakes and buns for the day and also to Waitrose and Tesco’s who donated cakes for the day. Pictured are David, Shirley, Valerie and John who looked after the stall on the day.
