Westfield

Westfield Church: Sadly, the yew trees along the path to the church have succumbed to disease, and reluctantly the decision was taken to accept the advice of experts and have them removed before the rest of the trees in the churchyard are affected. Just two trees remain there, and it is hoped that they remain disease free. Services this Sunday are Holy Communion at 8am and Family Service at 10am. Don’t forget that there will be a showing of the Christmas film ‘ Nativity 2: Danger in the Manger’ on Sunday 2 December at 3pm.

Friendship Club: The Friendship Club meets in the New Inn on Monday 26 November from 2.30 – 4pm. Bingo and whist are played in a friendly atmosphere, with tea and biscuits on offer. Ring Derek Edwards for more information (01424 753155). New members are always welcome.
