Penwortham United Reformed Church has informed us, at short notice, that we are unable to use their premises on 7 April 2018 because essential electrical work is being carried out.  As our last meeting was disrupted due to snow, we were reluctant to cancel the meeting.  We have been able to book the Board Room from 10:00 to 15:00 at Penwortham Priory Academy, which is about 10 minutes walking distance from the Church.  The full address is:

Penwortham Priory Academy
Crow Hills Road

All members should have been informed, but if you have any questions, please email or contact the secretary.
