TONIGHT in the village hall, the Iden and District Natural History Society will continue its series of Winter Lectures with a talk by Mr. David Fletcher about British Wildlife.

On Monday 11th November there will be the very popular Pop - inn Coffee Morning to coincide with the visit of the Mobile Library. Coffee is from 11 am to 1.30 pm. The library comes from 12.10 to 12 50 pm.

Nobody has said anything, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the two minutes’ Silence is observed at 11 am.

Last Friday a very noisy, fun evening raised lots of money for the Goat Sanctuary. Huge thanks are given by Pauline and Robin for all the help and support, especially from John, Mandy, Paul, Ray and Ann. It was all immensely enjoyed by all who took part and a wonderful £428.49 was raised. Don’t ask who was short of a penny !!

There will be service of Parish Communion at 9.30 am on Sunday, the third before Advent.
