What? – A celebration of the life and talents within our community
When? – The weekend of
26th/27th October.
We are planning a weekend to celebrate the skills and talents in our parish. This could be displayed in various creative ways.
You might have a skill in art making, crafts, music making, creative writing, storytelling, circus skills, riding a unicycle or other hidden talents. There may be something you have made which you have enjoyed making in the past and would like to share now.
We hope to have a display of talents, art, crafts and flowers created and produced by members of this community. We seek to involve as many groups or individuals as possible to contribute to displays in church over this weekend.
If you would like to share ideas please discuss with Janet, Alison, Glenda or Margaret from the PCC.

Churchyard Project.
We are blessed with beautiful natural surroundings that contain mature trees and wildflowers. At our recent ‘tidy-up ‘day we discussed the different tasks and ways to keep this wonderful churchyard in good order to respect the wishes of the families who have entrusted their loved ones to this place. There is often much discussion about the history, memories and stories held within the inscriptions on the grave stones too.
There are many ways to think about the care of the churchyard and we wonder if there is a ‘heart’ for some people of the community to come together to discuss these matters and form a church yard group who could maintain and develop the environmental, historical cultural and faith understandings of this place.
It seems that these Tidy-up days promote some wonderful discussion and sharing about history and interest in the natural environment.
We would welcome suggestions and support to develop a Wildlife heritage and possible Peace garden within the church yard. These ideas have been discussed with PCC and we think it is a time to open up the care and interest shown in this place to the wider community.
If you are interested or curious about this project please contact me or discuss with anyone you know involved in the church.

Many thanks indeed for all the acts of kindness to date. The Women’s Refuge is delighted with all the contributions this Parish has made.
In church, we continue to keep a large plastic box under the coffee table for donated items. We will continue to pass on any good condition household items that you no longer need to the Refuge. Your generosity is making such a difference. Thank you.
