Church News – Feb 2011

The Christmas Gift

At Christmas we gave everyone in the village an opportunity to give a gift to the church towards the guttering fund. I would like to thank you for your generosity the appeal raised £576.80 some of which was ‘gift aided’ and will eventually yield more from the taxman. Vicky Fleming

The next High Five service for children up to 5 years will be on 4th February at 10am

‘Craft Company’

It is so good to get together with others of like mind and share ideas, inspire and encourage each other and enjoy a natter while doing our crafts. Please come and join us on Wednesday 9th February 2–4pm at Dryden House. More details from Mary Cooper or Vicky Fleming.

‘Saturday Scene’

meets on the 12th February in the Village Hall 4-5.15pm. An exciting church event for young families. Stories, songs, crafts, games and food. Contact Donald Page on 825693.

Guttering News!!

At the side of the page in Tower and Tap you will see how well we are doing in our efforts to protect the village church and heritage. We have a long way to go and we need your support. Last month I asked for help with fundraising ideas and someone to trawl the grant bodies that may help us. Unfortunately none has been forthcoming—perhaps now the Christmas season is over you would reconsider my appeal.

The Meeting Point

Those who come often remark about the enjoyment of sitting down with a neighbour they haven’t seen for a while with a cake in one hand and a coffee in the other.

I look forward to hearing from you.
