Looking Forward

Harvest Festival This year we will once again be supporting 2 local charities which work with local people. They are ‘The Vine’ Drop In and ’Step by Step’; both continue to provide a valuable service to some of the more vulnerable people in our community. If you would like to help, money or gifts can be given to Fr. Keith.

Coffee Mornings — No Coffee mornings during August, we resume our usual monthly charity coffee mornings on Wednesday September 19th then October 24th  and November 21st, 10-11am in the Church Hall – ‘Coffee Break’ dates are September 5th,  October 10th and  November 7th, again 10-11am. Why not come along, everyone is friendly and we always end with  a game of bingo!

Church Hall Floor  After having more problems with the Main Hall floor, the PCC has decided to have it replaced during the  Summer Holidays. This is costing us over £20,000 which is obviously going to be a considerable strain on our funds! I am however pleased to be able to record our thanks to our local County Councillor, Bill Withers, who has obtained a £1,000 Hampshire grant for us, and also our local ward councillors, Keith, Sue and Frank, who have allocated £500 towards the project. Any other offers of financial help would be very welcome!

Christmas Market— Saturday 24th November 11.00am –2.30pm There will be a variety of stalls  with Christmas gifts for all. I am looking for donations of small home -made decorated Christmas Cakes and suitably presented home -made sweets and biscuits; we also need prizes for the Grand Christmas Draw as well as   bottles and toiletries. Please mark the date and support what is meant to be one of our main fundraising events.  A limited number of tables will be available for hire for handicrafts, Christmas ’Stuff’ etc at £6 per table + 10% of takings for Church Funds – BOOK NOW on 320840.

Weddings It isn’t too late too book a wedding for 2019—dates still available, and we offer Fridays too!
