Please can we also have help with designing our stall with banners and posters etc. to ensure it is not overlooked! All offers and ideas welcome; Gerbera Le Fort 838238.”


THANK YOU  to the Youth Group for their recent sponsored Car Wash in aid of the St Nicholas Orphanage in Kenya, and to all who supported it. £75 was raised towards our target for this year of £360, which is excellent. On a warm summer’s evening, the Youth Group did themselves proud, and it was wonderful to see several of our Church-goers with their cars.


DONATIONS TOWARDS CHURCH FLOWERS are always welcome, in memory of a loved one, or to mark a special occasion or anniversary. Please speak to Fr William. Thank you for recent donations from: Derek Armsworth, and also Guy and Faith Raven, in memory of Jonathan, their son.
