names of people they are remembering to be read out, along with those whose
funerals have taken place during the last 12 months.
Letters of Invitation to the All Souls Memorial Service to the next of kin of
the people whose funerals have been held during the last 12 months have been
sent out but there are still a few to be delivered. PLEASE PICK UP those
addressed to a road near you and deliver this week if possible. Do encourage
anyone you know who would like to remember a loved one to come to this

Tower Fund and Stone Sponsorship. If you take a walk around the base of the
tower you will spot some of the new stones being used in the reconstruction of the
South West buttress. Each is coded according to its designated place and eventually
the sponsors of each stone will receive a certificate identifying their area of sponsorship. There is also a model underneath the display board in Church.
This week’s Coffee Morning raised £149.50 for Church Funds. Thanks to all
helpers and supporters.
There is a small team of stone masons working on the project and during weekdays
their tapping can be clearly heard. There are still areas of repair to be sponsored,
with our shortfall now reduced to £12,500. So please, if you haven’t already sponsored a stone, please join with the townspeople and local community in ensuring
that this project can be completed by mid December. Leaflets and forms are a
available in Church.
