talk about charity work: On Wednesday, March 19, at 2pm, Margery Pryce-Jones, of Multi-International Aid, (Newport) will, once again, be in Sardis Chapel talking and showing slides to the Ladies Fellowship about her continuing work for Russian orphans.

These talks are always very interesting, and one is always amazed at the marvellous things Margery and her friends achieve in helping hundreds of poor children.

There will be refreshments and everyone is invited to join with us - and there will be opportunity to look around the newly renovated chapel.

And finally, a big congratulations to the Sardis children who took part in the Eisteddfod at Ebbw Vale.

They enjoyed themselves and achieved wonderful results - well done.
