Coffee morning: A successful coffee morning was held in the town hall in aid of the local branch of the MS Society. The organisers would like to thank all the helpers, donators and coffee-goers for their tremendous support Tuesday Club: On Sunday, August 4, an open garden event was held courtesy of Ralph and Grace Parker. It was a successful day, and £292 was raised for the Tuesday Club. The group supports people with learning disabilities and is organised by Eiza Sayer and Jane Jones, with meetings held in the Methodist schoolroom. For years there has been a need for more social facilities for adults with special learning needs in the Settle and Bentham area. Now Avalon, with the support of Bentham’s Methodist community, has come to the rescue by providing funding and the staff to get the Tuesday Club off the ground. The open garden was the first fundraiser and the next event will be line dancing at the Methodist Schoolroom on Friday, September 13, from 6.30pm to 9.30pm.
