Stephen Prest reports…
Our Christmas events went very well this year. The weather was kind for our carol singing evening and we managed to sing in Porch Farm Close, Sycamore Close and Green Crescent before singing in The Grapes to a large gathering. Sincere thanks to The Grapes for the hot punch and mince pies which helped to keep us in good voice. We raised over £60 for Action for Children.
The United Carol Service in the Methodist Church also went very well with a good congregation enjoying the re telling of the Christmas story once again.
The Wednesday Fellowship Group has restarted after the Christmas break and we are going to do a series based on a book by Rob Parsons called The Wisdom House. It looks at the opportunities and problems we face as we go through life and encouraging us to have hopes and dreams for the future and how we can help them to be realised. Contact Geoff and Karen Bishop if you want to know more.
We are continuing with the fish & Chip delivery service on the second Tuesday of the month which is going well. Fish, chips and peas for £2-50 is excellent value.
Soupa lunch is going very well and for our Christmas special in December the Methodist Schoolroom was almost full and we all enjoyed an excellent lunch.
There is no Soupa lunch in February so the next one will be on Wednesday March 16th. Contacts are Stephen & Rachel Prest 628277 and Trudy Carr 628302.
