Norman Lamb switched on the lights on the tree outside Lessingham chapel on Saturday, helping them to mark the beginning of their Christmas celebrations.
Lessingham Chapel has undergone a transformation over the past year under an ambitious redevelopment programme to enable it to be used by the local community. It is the only Chapel in the Methodist Circuit to have installed Solar Panels to conserve energy and raise extra funds to support the community work. There is already a regular monthly Scrabble Group, a Quilt Group, a Luncheon Club and two Coffee mornings per month.
Upon completion of the second Phase of the redevelopment in the New Year, the Chapel will be opening a monthly Forget-me-not Group for people living with Dementia and their Carers. Funds are currently being raised to install video equipment and a loop system to support users of this facility. Donations and offers of help at the Club will be gratefully received and further details can be obtained from the Lay Pastor, Ros Peedle - Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
