Events at Bethlehem Hall in April

We had our first themed supper quiz last Friday and this got a very positive response from everyone who attended. We are delighted to say that, in all, we raised £190 towards the Hall, and that we have already been asked by quite a few people to make the event a regular date in the calendar, which we are more than happy to do. Watch this space for details!

Bethlehem Book Cafe 23rd April 2-6pm
We've been busy sorting out all the books that have, up until now, been living in the small meeting room on the big bookcase, along with other books donated to us. So s ince the Post Office room is now empty, we have moved the bookcase in there, along with a couple of long tables, and all the best books are now neatly displayed so that local people can come along and hopefully find some great new titles to read. There's a varied selection of fiction and non-fiction (with some great cookery books btw!), as well as children's books and some Welsh language fiction, so really, something for everyone.

We will be holding the first Bethlehem Book Cafe this Sunday, April 23rd, between 2 and 6 pm, where not only can you browse through the books, or bring a few of your own to swap, but pop into the hall as we will be serving afternoon tea, with a variety of teas, freshly brewed ground coffee, soft drinks, and a selection of homemade cakes, all at very reasonable prices.

Even if you're not looking for new reading material, why not call in anyway for a cuppa, cake and a chat. Hope to see you then!

The Food Club is back! Des will be presenting his 'hands on' cookery class on 26th April at 7pm. All the ingredients and recipes are provided, with a little bit of guidance and the occasional nudge in the right direction, and at the end of it you get to cook a lovely meal which you know you will be able to reproduce when you get home. This month we will be cooking Spaghetti Cacio e Pepe, a delcicious spaghetti dish in a cheese and pepper sauce. We'll also be making a wild garlic pesto and Panna Cotta with a raspberry coulis. The cost of the ingredients is shared amongst those attending with an extra £1 added on for the hall hire. For more information contact Des on 01550 779255 or email interfoodtech@sky.com

If anyone has any ideas that they would like to put forward for events in the hall, please contact Nia (niaclement@aol.com) or Sue (sue@deeproot.co.uk)
