This Sunday 7 October we will ‘Feast on our History’ by celebrating Black History Month with a programme of events, including drumming workshops, poetry and history talks. We will be celebrating the harvest as we always do by asking you to bring Foodbank donations and to join in with the St Luke’s and Chatsworth choirs when they sing. There will also be a Dog Show!
