Saturday 21 July 2018 1.00pm-4.00pm, Church Summer Fete

Only one week to go, have you delivered any flyers or put up a poster? There are plenty at the back of church, please help yourself. Remember too to look out bottles, raffle prizes, cakes, jewellery, scarfs, etc. Thanks, Paula

We are introducing a treasure hunt to encourage visitors to this year’s church fete to come into the church, exploring the beautiful interior to hunt for clues. We need a team of welcoming volunteers to work in pairs in 3 shifts of an hour each.  If you’re able to offer your time please contact Ali G.

Books for the Fete  - Andrew & Julia Gordon-Lennox would be very pleased to receive any books you might want to give to the Fete Bookstall. To minimise the carrying of heavy books around, please do not put them in the Church - you can contact by phone or email, details listed in the pew sheet in church.

10.00am to 12noon    Drop-in for Coffee & Chat in the Parish Hall
