Floodlights

Please will you send any requests for floodlights to Rosemary Payne, 9 Hadley Street. Tel: 472943 rosemary.payne@mypostoffice.co.uk   Thank you.

 

Church Inside Clean

Thank you to everybody who came on Friday 29th  to help with the inside clean. All the pews are polished and some screens.

BUT that is not enough! If you were not able to come on that date could you come and help me clean the glass or the chairs in St Swithuns or St Chad’s, or even hoover the blue seat covers at another time, so that these jobs are done annually? Those who came before have done enough, but we are sure there are others who could do a bit!   PLEASE  Judith Rickard, 472682.

 

The Green Corridor and Churchyard Rejuvenation

A huge thank you to everyone who supported our churchyard clean-up over the weekend at the beginning of April.  A really good start was made to clearing ivy, brambles, saplings, basal growth and fallen branches and we now have a very large pile of debris to make a bonfire.  Thanks also to the ladies who kept the volunteers fed and watered with tea and delicious homemade cakes!

Our next outing to continue the good work is on Sunday 22nd  May from 13:00 when we will be very grateful for volunteers to come along with suitable tools and equipment to tackle the overgrowth along the south wall.  Thanks again for your efforts to create a Green Corridor through the village. Contact Diana Muir 473455 for more information.

 

Church Heating

Please note that unless we have a really, really cold May the heating in church will be turned off till the autumn.

 

AGM May 8th

A reminder that the AGM will follow the 10.30 service on Sunday.  This is the opportunity to make any comments or ask any questions as we look back over the year, look forward to the future, approve the church accounts and elect churchwardens and PCC members for the year ahead.

Our two church wardens are standing down so please consider carefully whether you could take on this role, with the help and support of past wardens and the PCC.  We are also looking for new members on the PCC.  For more information on any of these roles please talk to Jeremy, Kay or Deanne, or any PCC member. Rosemary Payne

 

Church Tubs

It’s that time of year again ~ We will be planting up our tubs again soon. Donations to buy plants would be very much appreciated and can be popped through Angela Carr’s door in Victoria Street. Thanks again for your support.
