"Sadly, due to lockdown, we will be unable to hold our usual annual meeting in Cromhall Village hall. This has always been well supported and has been our AGM.
Instead, this year, we are emailing our annual report to all on our distribution list and hope that it reaches as many of our supporters as possible.

If you have any questions arising from the report, please send them to me at and I will answer them.
Thank you all for your continued interest and support for all we do."
Ann & trustees
THANK YOU to everyone who has bought the homemade colourful face masks from Cromhall Village Shop or myself.
These have been made to raise funds for the work of CLinC and the good news is that we have now raised over £2,200 for the work of CLinC. Amazing!
The chicks are also selling well!
There are still plenty of masks to choose from in the Shop or by phoning me on 294200.
Thank you to Cromhall Shop for allowing us to do this.
Sponsorship money is sent each December to cover school fees and uniform costs to enable grade 8 and 9 children to attend local government secondary schools.
The cost of sponsorship for one year remains around £100 per pupil.
If you are willing to continue sponsoring a child, or to give a donation towards sponsorship, please let me have cash or cheques by the first week in December.
Thank you to all who pay by standing order and those who send their cheques each year made payable to CLinC.

Roy Greenhalgh died in March 2015 after living with cancer for 15 years. Roy was one of the founders of CLinC in 2004 and his enthusiasm and support will be greatly missed.
Roy made it very clear that he wanted the work of CLinC to continue.
The two classroom block built in Roy's memory at St Mark's Community School in Zambia is now completed and awaiting official opening by the Bishop.
In true Zambian style, there will be celebration party for all those who have worked on the project, along with the staff and students at the school.
Plans are now being drawn up for a toilet block to be added to the school.
