St Mary's Christmas Tree Festival
Thank you to everybody who contributed to a very successful Christmas Tree Festival at St Maryís. We raised £2006.80 (less expenses £1934)! It was a very enjoyable weekend; many people commented on the high standard of the trees (which can be seen on St Mary's Facebook page) and all the stalls were very successful.
Operation Christmas Child
This year a total of 34 boxes have been donated by friends from the village and beyond. Many thanks to Walkern School who again agreed to be a drop-off point and to everyone who has supported this yearís Shoebox appeal so generously.
Historic Churches Trust Bike'n'Hike 2017
St Peter's church took part in the Historic Churches Trust Bike'n'Hike as usual this year. 10 Cyclists visited our church and we fielded one hiker (others who might have taken part were busy at Saturday Club.) £200 was sent to the Churches Trust of which half will be returned to St Peter's. Thanks go to Paul Hudson, his sponsors and to the 7 helpers who welcomed people arriving at our church during the day.
