Summer Fete – Saturday 23 July 2022
Punch & Judy are booked, but we need lots of helpers.  Please tell Angie Leggett if you can help on the day or with preparations in advance. Could you run a stall or a side-show, make jam or cakes, grow plants or help with publicity to make a great occasion?  Please don’t delay in showing your interest.

We continue to encourage prayer for the people of Ukraine, and to use the Parish Church as a quiet place of contemplation in which to do so.  A pillar candle burns in the north chapel each day.
Our Sunday cash collections for the people of Ukraine have ended, and £1,000 (including Gift Aid) has been sent to the DEC Ukraine appeal.  We direct those who wish to make further contribution to do so through DEC or support the  Fund Raising Event for Ukraine – Tree and Teas, Sunday 29th  May 2:30 – 5:00pm at Church House, Westbourne Road (Opposite the War Memorial).  Come and see a 14m Tulip Tree in flower! One of Westbourne’s special trees.  Tea and cakes in our garden. Raffle with a star prize.  All donations (cash) to DEC for Ukraine.  

Coffee Morning in aid of The Leprosy Mission  
Please join us at Cranberry, North Street for coffee on Tuesday 14 June 2022, 10am to 12 noon. We have been supporting the Mission for many years. Every two minutes, someone is diagnosed with leprosy. That's more than 200,000 new cases a year. Although it is curable, millions of people worldwide are living with the effects of the disease, from physical disability to mental health problems, poverty and discrimination. The Mission aims to help these people.
