MINEHEAD COMMUNITY SUPPER
You are warmly invited to the relaunch of our Community Supper on
Wednesday 15th November at The Beach Hotel.
Come and share with us a delicious two course supper giving you the
opportunity to see what we offer at our community meal. This normally
takes place on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month between 5pm and
6pm and is attended by those who have been given a free meal voucher by
local support agencies thereby giving them the opportunity to engage with
others and enjoy a heart-warming healthy supper in pleasant surroundings.
To enable us to offset these costs we encourage the general public
to join us at this time and donate £5.00 for their supper.
West Somerset Food Cupboard October 2017
Food parcels since the project began in 2007 - 9568
Food parcels so far this year - 1500
At the end of a very busy month the first thing I need to say to all of you is a huge thank you! We have received so many donations following harvest festivals in churches and schools and it means that we have almost full cupboards again - at least for a while. But the demand has also been high and that means that our supplies will decrease quickly. Certain items are still needed despite all the items that have come in. Each week at the moment we are having to stock up on the following products: tinned potatoes, long life milk, fruit juice and cold meats.
Now as November begins our thoughts are turning to Christmas and the extras that we like to include in the food parcels that go out for this time of year. We are beginning to collect boxes of biscuits and sweets, Christmas puddings and other festive products to fill medium sized gift bags which we can send out with our usual boxes when we get to Christmas. Any donations of these items plus things like chutneys, tins of ham etc. would be very welcome to help make Christmas a little more special for people who have very little.
Thank you all again for your support.

In November, we were delighted to have a visit from Justin the Archbishop of Canterbury who has launched a programme of Renewal and Reform in the Church of England.
The Archbishop met with the 6th Form at West Somerset College for a Question & Answer session and then with all of the School Pastors.
