Paul Dent is hoping for interesting items for the new magazine. Brief accounts of events over the festive period, or other things that will interest our readers please. Please give or e mail to Paul by January 15th for the Feb/Mar issue.
Make sure you have got your copy of this month’s magazine – the last in the present format.
We are collecting items of warm clothing such as hats, scarves, gloves and socks to take down to the Booth Centre for the homeless in Manchester over the Christmas period. If you have any of these to spare or get some as Christmas presents you can't use these would be most welcome.
Also Cold Nights - Local charity which goes into Manchester to take food to people sleeping on the streets. They would like donations of pot noodles, porridge pots, crisps and chocolate. Their local drop off point is Limekiln Cafe by the Brownhill Visitor Centre in Uppermill so we could take donations up there. Chocolate bars are a particular treat, so if anyone has any such thing as an unwanted chocolate bar that would be greatly appreciated.
If any of our children or young people play a musical instrument, would they like to join a small group to play occasionally in church services? Please let Paul or Edith know if you might be interested.
