Blue gift-aid envelopes
Please ensure that you provide full name and address and
postcode legibly in the details when you donate by blue gift-aid
envelope. Failure to provide all these details will result in the
Church not being able to reclaim the tax on your
donations. Recently we have received a number of envelopes
where these details have not been completed and therefore
cannot submit a claim for the tax reclaim.
Gardening
Thank you to Lorna and Gerald Osmond who did a great job of
clearing the paths in the Garden of Remembrance last week.
Now we want more help please. On Saturday 25th October we
need as many people as possible with secateurs, saws, spades
etc. to help us to tidy and clear the beds at either side of the west
boor of the Parish Church. It will be great to have your company
between 10am & 1pm, coffee & biscuits will be available.
Musicathon
Well done to Mike and all those who sang for this event, it was
fantastic. Thanks also goes to all those who have worked
behind the scenes to make the event a success. Please remember to
collect your sponsorship monies.

The Food Bank
There is a steady flow of referrals to our local Food Bank. This
has now been operational for a year during which there have
been 97 referrals, of which 53 involved families with children,
ranging in age from a few weeks to 17 years old.
Please continue your support. The donation box is at the back
of church.
