Brede Flower Festival: Our two grandchildren, aged 7 and 5, greatly enjoyed their visit to the festival last Monday, spotting familiar details of the books they know and intrigued by others that haven’t yet come their way. It was indeed a wonderful show, full of imaginative ingenuity, for which Sue Sturmey and her talented team of helpers deserve hearty congratulations.

Church Services: In St Mary’s Church this Sunday, Holy Communion at 8am will be followed by Evening Prayer at 6pm. The monthly Messy Church will be in the Community Hall as usual, on Tuesday (September 2) starting at 4pm.
