DDARA Youth Group is entering both the Scarecrow Competition and the Battle Town Carnival. We are asking for any help people can give us the theme is ‘British Armed Forces’ The carnival is on June 29 2013. Any children wanting to take part please contact Marrissa on 01424 838106.

The service this Sunday June 16 will be a Holy Communion at Mountfield and Sunday June 23 will be a Holy Communion at Netherfield. This is also the Patronal Festival so we are planning to have Pimms and nibbles after the service so hopefully the warmer weather will continue! The final service on Sunday June 30 will be at Brightling and will be an Evensong. With the exception of this service all others will start at 10 am.

Our Coffee Morning last Saturday, hosted by the Parkinson’s at Stoneywood was a brilliant morning. Despite the aggravating north wind it was possible to shelter, enjoy the sunshine and take in the magnificent views to the coast, which were something to be enjoyed while having a chat with friends in the beautiful garden. It was well supported with a constant flow of visitors and there were some interesting competitions, goods and plants for sale together with a raffle to keep one entertained. A very sociable morning and financially rewarding as £250 was raised for our church. A huge thank you to those who supported it, also to Rosie and Ted who worked hard to entertain everyone and prepare everything to such a high standard.

We have another Coffee Morning coming up in July which will be advertised soon. Paul Smith, Churchwarden.
