CHURCH SERVICE: At the 9.30am service in St Mary’s this Sunday we shall be celebrating Harvest Festival. During the service there will also be a dedication of our new hymn books, and a re-dedication of the Aumbrey, in the Sanctuary, where the Reserved Sacrament is to be kept in future.

SOUP AND SCRABBLE: Arranged by the Four Charities, there will be another session of this popular and sociable lunchtime event, in the Hall next Thursday, October 11. It will start at noon, when hot soup will be served, followed by an hour’s friendly and relaxed Scrabble, then followed by tea and biscuits. All for the modest price of £5. If you can come, it would be helpful if you could let Sue Lee know (01424 883122) by Wednesday evening.

HARVEST SUPPER: Next evening, 7pm on Friday October 12, our annual Harvest Supper will again be held in the Hall. For a home-cooked two course hot supper the price will again be £10, and there will be a raffle too. Bring your own drinks. No tickets, but if you’re hoping to come please let Liz Turgoose know (01424 882657) by Tuesday, or midday Wednesday at the very latest, so that she can add your name(s) to the list - and make catering arrangements.

MACMILLAN COFFEE MORNING: Now that we’re having our own MCM once again, do make a point of looking in at the Hall the following morning, Saturday, October 13 (with some cash to spend, in aid of this excellent cause) any time between 10am and noon. Besides refreshments, there will be things to buy, and a raffle. More details in this column next week.
