News update 9th June

This weekend we have our "Cherish Your Churchyard Day" at St Thomas' on Saturday. The weather forecast isn't good, but we can keep popping back into the community room for a brew and a warm, and to collate ideas about how we can make our churchyard more welcoming to wildlife and humans.

Sunday is Pentecost, and there will be a Parish Eucharist, 9.15 at St Thomas'. The arrangements for the walks and the Churhes Together joint service can be found below (the weather forecast is rather better for Sunday).

Next Saturday the Ladies have Tea and Toast from 10.30 - 12 at St Thomas', and immediately after that there will be a tour of the church using the Quinquennial Inspection report as a guide. Please do come along to both.
