Women’s World Day of Prayer: This annual event will be held today at St Laurence’s Church at 2.30pm. This is always a very special service which starts as the day begins with the sun rising over the island of Samoa. It is passed around the world following the sun until it sets off the coast of Eastern Samoa, some thirty-five hours later. It is moving to know that we in Catsfield are part of more than five thousand services being held in the British Isles alone passing on the message, which this year is written by the Christian women of The Philippines and translated into a thousand different languages.

Coffee Morning: Tomorrow is the Parish Church of St Laurence’s next fundraising event. There will be a Coffee Morning in the Village Hall from 10am until 12 noon with Craft and Cake Stalls and a Raffle.

Golden Wedding: Congratulations to Rita and Martin Gurney on their Golden Wedding anniversary on March 9th. Very many thanks from all their local friends who were invited to join them and their family in the celebrations at the Village Hall last Saturday, a lovely party!
