ST PETER’S CHURCH: Inspired by a visit to the magnificent exhibition in Durham of the Lindisfarne Gospels the Rev Paul Summers celebrated parish communion last Sunday in vestments to rival Joseph’s amazing technicolour dreamcoat created by children of the school in the parish where he was previously rector, All Saints in Kirby Overblow, who had been on a school trip to Holy Island. Meanwhile Hands On church was meeting in the Church Hall and one of their hands on activities was to make a farewell card for Canon Barbara Clarke who has nurtured the group from its inception and whose last meeting it would be for her. Thank you Barbara for all you have done with Hands On Church. There was a good turn-out for the Alzheimer’s Society walks and £170 was raised for the charity. The Macmillan Coffee Morning is on September 27. The Church Orchard, under Derek Law’s skilled guardianship, is yielding much fruit and apples and plums are available in the church hall in return for donations to the Send a Cow charity. There are the usual services over the coming week and there is a toddlers’ service at 11am today.
ALLOTMENTS AND GARDENS ASSOCIATION: The group starts its new season of meetings on Thursday, September 26. First one is by Michael Roe entitled Ten thousand acres of sky and will be on wildlife photography. This will be in Mount Hermon at 7.30pm. We hope to see a good crowd of members and non members as all are welcome. Over the autumn winter season we have some interesting talks and film shows lined up which we hope will be of interest to everybody.
