We start each evening with a welcome drink, then we take places for a 4-course meal, plus coffee, all for £27.50 per head. We don't have a drinks licence, so please bring your own wine or beer to have with your meal.
These evenings have proved very popular, and they usually "sell out" within 24 hours so don't delay. Keep an eye on the Chapel Kitchen Supper Club facebook page or the Flore facebook page for announcements.

Commonwealth Flag Project and Commonwealth Disaster Relief Scheme
Johnnie Amos - 01327-349080
The Flore Commonwealth Flag Project started as a means to celebrate Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. The inspiration behind this choice was The Queen’s unwavering work for, and love of, the Commonwealth. Further research showed that the commonwealth flags were not flown in the UK, therefore it seemed a perfect and unique idea for our village, and the Commonwealth Flags Project took on the task.
The flags are hoisted in rotation by Paul Rowles and members of the Flore Scouts, as well as other members of the community. The Work of today's Commonwealth and that of the Overseas Territories are a great leaning tool that can earn 'Scout badges' as well as giving a splash of colour and interest to the community. Can you name the Commonwealth flag flying when you pass by?

Richard Floyer Trust
Christine Littlewood - 01327-340918
The key objective is to establish a fund which will provide financial support to selected activities and projects that have a positive impact on the village communities. These activities and projects may be aimed at all age groups or at specific sectors of the community such as the elderly, youth or children. They may have recreational, educational or entertainment focuses as long as they implicitly support the beliefs underpinning Christianity.
