Messy Church September
Messy Church this month is on September 25th with the theme of Messy Harvest. Do bring your children/grandchildren along at 4pm at the Church Centre.
New craft group
I am thinking of starting a craft group to make articles for St Martin's Church summer and autumn fairs. If you are interested in sewing, knitting, or any other craft, please contact me. Can't knit or sew? Don't worry, come along to learn or there are a host of other things you can do to help. Promise coffee and cakes - and lots of fun! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tea for The Queen
After a hectic morning setting up, our helpers were pleased to join others for our usual monthly charity lunch (half the proceeds for our youth project and half for charities.)
We then settled down and had a brilliant afternoon. It was so lovely to see everyone enjoying a traditional community English event as many villagers turned up (some wearing crowns) with their picnics to celebrate our Queen’s 90th birthday.
The children enjoyed making handicrafts and then joined with their parents / grandparents in various races. Most people managed to have a go with Maypole dancing – expertly organised by Pat.
Cream teas were on the menu as we sat and listened to the Enderby band who played in the sunshine and then completed the day for us with a “last night of the proms sing a long” with “Jerusalem”, “Land of Hope & Glory”, Rule Britannia and finishing with the National Anthem.
