A big thank you to all those who turned out on Saturday 25th August while the rain poured down outside to help clean All Saints Church after the building repair work. Particular thanks to John Apps and David Thornley for taking on the high up cleaning in areas which have seen no duster or brush for many years, and where the spiders had run riot.
The church was left sparkling and dust free with clean windows and gleaming brass and silver in time for the Service of Rededication of the church tower by Bishop Martin on 2nd September.
Keeping such a large building in good order is a herculean task. Your help was truly appreciated.
The church Tower appeal continues but is now not too far short of its target. Very many thanks to all those who supported the stalls at the Car Boot Sale on 9th September with contributions to the stalls and help and support on the day. We were exceedingly lucky with the weather; it was almost too hot for comfort! The event raised a magnificent £578. 90. Particular thanks to Pat Calvert for organising the tombola and to the Sports Field committee for their support once again.
