Thank you
Mr Tony Harris has given our ‘Guttering Fund’ a gift of £500 —we are so grateful for this gift. Each gift is a step towards ensuring our ancient church is maintained and not lost to future generations. It is a place of quiet and peace where many of our village friends and family have been laid to rest. It is a place that people use to come and think, to reflect and meditate. Not all those who use this sacred place are Christians, or come to church, it is used by many who just value the atmosphere and history. Do you value it? Do you want to preserve it? If so, any gift you can give will help towards its preservation. Thank you for your generosity.

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 non-biodegradable things in the bin provided and compost the rest in the designated area. Thank you.
