All Saints Day Concert: The concert given by Jennifer Thompson, Gordon Hewlett and friends raised £102 for Friends funds for the renovation and repair of the church. During the evening a cheque for £4400 was presented to the PCC from the Friends to cover the outstanding balance of the most recent restoration work. In the spring the Friends were able to cover the cost of some extremely urgent repairs to stonework. Last year the Friends covered the cost of re-installing the organ which had been dismantled while work was carried out.
Wine Tasting Evening: The November Wine Tasting Evening was a great success and raised £464.62 for Friends funds.
Christmas Coffee Morning: Saturday 30th November 10:30am-12:30pm in the Village Hall. Come along for a cup of coffee or tea and feast on mince pies and shortbread. There will be a variety of stalls to tempt you and a raffle.
Casting call for Shepherds, Kings, Marys and Josephs! We are looking for volunteers! Do you have an hour or two free between 6 and 8 on either Friday 20th December or Saturday 21st December? The Friends are breaking new ground and are putting together a live Christmas tableau outside the church. Refreshments (mulled wine, mince pies etc) will be available inside! Contact Jacquie Bland (250986) or Gail Bull (251057) to get involved or for more information.
