Easter Celebration Lunch
Following our Easter celebrations on Sunday morning, there will be a celebration lunch at the Rectory. All are invited and there will be plenty of food, wine and good conversation, plus a welcome opportunity to do some of whatever you have given up for Lent.
If anyone is yearning to contribute via one of their "signature bakes" that would be appreciated, but not essential! Please speak to Kate Blackledge concerning the catering, and please let either Kate or the Rector know if you intend to come along.
Organ replacement - Volunteers needed!: Are you able-bodied, and free on the 9th, 10th, or 13-17th April? Our pipe organ is being removed, and we need some keen volunteers to (a) help remove the pipes to go into storage (b) help dispose of the now redundant organ mechanisms, and (c) take any scrap wood used for the organ frame to the tip. A trailer, or a car with a large boot, would also be a bonus! Please speak to the Rector if you are able to help out for any length of time.
The Flower Guild: Mary Edwards has taken over from Pam Johnson as Convenor of the Flower Guild. Thanks to Pam for her many years as Convenor and for her beautiful arrangements over the years. Also the Flower Festival has been postponed for a year - to June 2016, with a planning meeting for anyone interested on Saturday 12th September 2015.
Sunday School: We now have an established Sunday School each week and it would be wonderful if anyone else would like to become involved, either as a leader or helper. If you are interested, or want to know more, please speak to Jane Barley or Carol Thompson.
Women’s Fellowship: Daffodil Tea in the Trinity Centre on Thursday 23 April at 2.30, where Melanie Acey (from the Fabric Shop) will be giving a demonstration entitled "Gift Wrapping".
