The HCPT Group 101 preparation day, to get us ready for the 2015 pilgrimage will be on Saturday 21st February at St Paul's church hall in Cantley. The times will be announced later.
It is vital that helpers going on the pilgrimage attend as there is no regional preparation day this year.
Please get in touch with Marge and Phil if you need further information.
