The services over the Christmas season were all very well attended; we had over 400 in church. A big thank you to our leaders and also to Jim Wilson our choirmaster who organised the Carol Service.

On Advent Sunday John Tattersall dedicated the new Advent Candle Stand in memory of Barbara & Ken Elliot.

We have just had the architect’s quinquennial report on the fabric of the building and I am happy to report that the Church is in good repair thanks to the ongoing general care and attention it gets.

An alarm system was installed on the church roof in January.

The Friendship Club met in December and sang Carols and had a really nice afternoon.

The Short Mat Bowls has resumed after the Christmas break.

What could be the last Lunch Club was held on January 9th, unless we can find someone to take over from Julie Taylor - perhaps on a Rota System. Please give this serious thought; it would be a shame if after so many years it had to stop. Look out for the Lent Lunch on February 19th.
