Settle Soup Number 3 and Pitch for Death Cafe

The third Settle Soup was held on Wednesday 30th September at lunchtime.

The three Pitches were:

  1. Equipment for Children's Play group held at the Parish church on Monday mornings
  2. Invitation for people to help start a "Death  Cafe" -an event to chat about issues relating to that taboo subject - death.
  3. Raise awareness that our beautiful new Settle Library will not be able to survive unless more funding can be found for more paid supervision. 
Only the video describing  the death cafe is given here.

Judith Allinson reminded people that
  1. In two months Settle Methodist Church building will hold its last service and the congregation will walk across the road to the new building that is now being built next to the current church hall. People who would like to see inside the splendid 122 year old building before it is demolished are welcome to services at 10.30am on Sundays or coffee mornings at 10-12 on Tuesdays. Visit it before it is gone!!
  2. Settle Community Christmas Meal will take place again in St John's Church Hall on 25 December. Bookings are now being taken.
The next Settle Soup will take place early in 2016

Over the three Soups held this year, a total of £450 was raised for the winning projects.
