APRIL 2017

16th April

We kindly inform you that this year’s Easter Sunday celebration is going to follow a different format. After the Divine Liturgy on Easter Sunday and until 5pm, the Community Hall grounds and the Hall itself (next to our Church), will be available for all to come and celebrate Easter.

However, the Committee will this year not provide food or drinks (including lamb). Please bring your own prepared food (including meat) and disposable utensils. For those who wish to celebrate in our Community Hall and they don't plan to bring their own food, the souvlaki van of Eat is Greek will be in our garden.

It would help immensely if you let us know in advance if you wish to participate. Those who come are kindly asked to take their rubbish home and leave the premises fit for use on Monday morning.

Happy Easter

From the Committee
