Changes due to Coronavirus
Santa CHRISTMAS FAIR This year, reluctantly, we had to accept that the Fair cannot take place, which is why the Friends of Leigh Church (FOLC) have launched their first ever Christmas appeal.  Click here for more details.

LOMCA, in line with Government advice, has suspended all of its activities for the foreseeable future. 

 

We have continued to maintain links with most of our ‘older’ members throughout the period of lockdown.  However, because our core support is to the ‘older person’, the coronavirus continues has meant that we cannot run the highly popular Active Living Centre. We announced in April that LOMCA, in line with Government advice, had suspended all of its activities for the foreseeable future.   With the continuing coronavirus outbreak and increasing restrictions, this remains the case for both our Active Living Centre meetings and Kurling sessions for the remainder of this year.

We are currently unable to run our formal programme due to COVID-19, but are in touch via email, post and Zoom meetings. New ladies are welcome to join in without commitment.
See WI blog for on-line activity. 

 

Memorial Hall
The Hall's 100 club has normally run from March until December each year. This year we have decided to suspend the club due to the complications of contacting members under the Covid restrictions. We will review the situation from time to time and let people know when we decide to re start. In normal times the club is a significant help towards your Hall's running costs as well as providing a little boost for the winners so we hope when the time comes as many of you as possible will support us.
