Just where has this year gone? Already this month you can see the nights gradually drawing in compared to those wonderful long days in June!
Well, our Summer Fayre and Patronal Festival went off very successfully and the Fayre and cream teas in the afternoon for our Flower Festival brought in £1,370.00 towards much needed church funds. Thanks to all who supported the Fayre - I certainly enjoyed the hot-dogs which were being sold in the churchyard. I would have liked to have tried the cakes too, but my diabetic blood sugar readings would have made my testing machine explode!!
A Beetle Drive - a favourite with many of you - is being held on Wednesday 2nd August commencing with lunch at 1pm. Tickets are available at the Church Office price £5.
On Saturday 12th August we shall be holding a Bric-a-Brac Sale in church from 10am until 12 noon, please do come along and have a rummage. If you have any items which you no longer have any use for, which we could sell, then please drop them off at the church prior to the 12th. Thank you in anticipation.
On that very same evening Tim Forder has arranged another of his magnificent Car Treasure Hunts. If you have been on one before you will know how brilliant it is, great fun and with some right brain teasers as clues. The ultimate destination is a hostelry with delightful food. If you are interested in taking part there is a menu at the back of the church, where you can indicate the meal of your choice. The Treasure Hunt will commence from the Health Centre Car Park at 5.15pm with individual cars leaving at five minute intervals. In the interest of Road Safety I must point out this is not timed and careful driving is most important.
There is NO MESSY CHURCH this month as it is holiday time, but normal service will resume in September on Thursday 21st.
Our Seniors Summer Sensation Week this year is from Monday 21st August until Friday 25th August - both dates inclusive. On these five days the church will be closed for tea and coffee as it will be occupied with activities for the Seniors. Also there will be no Holy Communion Service on Thursday, 24th August.
Monday, 28th August, is the last of our Bank Holidays until Christmas time and I am delighted to tell you that we shall be holding another of our Open Church Days. Once again Lunches will be served from 12 noon until 2pm, and thereafter until 5pm cream teas and cakes will also be available. You will have a wide choice on the menu for lunches, all again at very reasonable prices. I know this event is always very popular with the elderly folk, who are unable due to mobility problems, to go rushing off to the seaside or elsewhere and they have the joy of delicious food and the company of others, whereas they may have been confined to four walls whilst everyone else was away enjoying themselves.
Before I go, have you come across the best mathematical equation ever seen? It is - 1 cross plus three nails - equals four given! ‘Bye for now!
