Church Funds

Many of you will remember Mrs Win Smith. She was very involved in village life and is remembered with great affection. Win loved this village and its church. Sadly Win died last year but she remembered her church to the last and has left £1,000 for Church funds. We wish to express our deep gratitude for this generous and thoughtful gift.

We are also grateful for other donations we have received for our guttering appeal—wouldn’t it be good to get this work done before the winter comes? Damp brings so many problems to old buildings and the more we can do to prevent it the better. Its is after all our heritage we are looking after. We can’t do it without your help.

POLITE NOTICE

Have you noticed how tidy the church grounds are now? A huge thank you to Colin and Jenny McEwen for cutting the Glebe grass and Richard Sansum and William Hiscocks for working hard in the churchyard. PLEASE help us to keep it tidy by disposing of nonbiodegradable things in the bin provided and compost the rest in the designated area. Thank you.

The Annual Meeting.

Donald Page and Richard Sansum were elected as Church Wardens once more. William Hiscocks is Treasurer and Tina Hiscocks is PCC Secretary. We are very grateful for their commitment to continue in office. Also elected as PCC members are Diane Gambles and Shirley Wildern. Diane is also our Deanery Synod Representative. Our vision continues to be helping people to explore faith, serving the community through our links with the school, Meeting Point and sharing the joys and difficulties of life when called upon. We want to repair and renew the guttering and downpipes but raising the money for this necessary maintenance is proving very difficult — will you help us?
