Your help is very much needed this coming Saturday 31st January from 10am to clean and polish church.
Lots of polishing, washing, brass cleaning (a nice sit down job!), sweeping, hoovering and dusting required, so please come along and donate some elbow grease to banish the cobwebs and create a clean and welcoming worship space. Please feel free to bring along rubber gloves, dusters, brushes, beeswax polish and any other magical ingredient from home. Coffee, tea and pastries provided throughout the morning. If you can stay into the afternoon then please bring a packed lunch too. Thank you.

Our very own Strictly Come Dancing night was enjoyed by all with fantastic music, brilliant dancing, a great atmosphere and one or two naughty drinks!! If you would like to see some video clips of the event and even get a glimpse of our dear Rector dancing then click on this link to my YouTube Channel.
Thank you to everyone who attended and special thanks to Glenis Turner and Patricia Keymer for helping to set up and keeping us all refreshed with food and drinks and thanks also to Paul Horsler, Josh Halsey and TADS for the loan of the lighting and sound equipment.
We are planning another similar event in the new year so watch this space.
