The Celebration Fellowship Supper

We had a great supper with lasagne, baked potatoes, spiced

beans, gammon and salad, followed by sumptuous deserts and all washed down with a glass of wine. It was such a happy and relaxed evening. We watched short animation film produced by the Diocese of Bristol and a Power point presentation celebrating last year’s achievements with lots of cheers as the pictures were displayed! The new look report and accounts for the year ending 31st December 2011 were circulated— if you want your own copy there are spare copies in the church.

A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to the food, setting up and clearing up – and to those who supported the evening.

This will be held in church at 7.30pm on 18th April. Thank you to all who served and worked so hard during the last year.

Refreshments provided by South Marston Church

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.

We look forward to seeing you
