Volunteer cooks: We need to cater for the Clare College Choir on 26 September.  Anyone willing to cook a dish for 6 hungry young people? Please let Sue or Felicity know.

Embroidery: We have an embroidered memorial to the crew of a plane who died in a crash in the parish in WW2.  It turns out that there was a second plane that crashed killing its crew too. Does anyone fancy embroidering a matching memorial, and renovating the existing one?

SMA Trust collection: Came to £400 including Gift Aid. Our token of recognition of the high esteem Joan Barnes has been, and continues to be, held in and for all her hard work as Verger over the years.  Thank you, on Joan’s behalf, for your generous contribution. Sue Brown

Our next churchwarden: Could it be you? Pick up a leaflet and pray.

Confirmation: Any adults or young people thinking about being confirmed?

Baptism &/or admission to communion: Any children aged 7+ interested?

Church calendar: The church calendar is always available on our website. Do check it out.  We also try to put what is coming up on here well in advance. Apologies when we fail! If you have anything to add to it, let Jeannie, Simon, Felicity or Sue know.
