Staff at Old Park Meadow Natural Burial Ground are holding a socially distanced coffee morning to raise funds for St Clare hospice.

The event at Coppice Lane, North End will take place on Wednesday, September 23 from 10am to 12noon.

Organisers will be following coronavirus health guidelines so ask participants to please book their place by calling in advance or emailing to say they will attend.
