Many thanks once more to Jacqui and Peter for hosting a mouth- watering Strawberry Tea on June 30th.As a result of ticket selling and a raffle, £205 was handed over to the Trust treasurer to be used for extras in the new hall.

Visit to Jodrell Bank & Quinta Arboretum

A very exciting Church outing has been planned by Chris Fox (822779) and Andrew Wogan (822912) to the Jodrell Bank Discovery centre on Tuesday August 20th. Travel to the Centre will be by coach, leaving the Memorial Hall at 8.15 and returning at 5 p.m. The cost of the coach plus admission to Jodrell Bank is £25 for Adults and £10 for children (Under 4's go free.) Chris or Andy have forms to be completed and handed in, the closing date is Sunday 11th August. There will be a Telescope Walking Tour at 11.45 and again at 1.30 with a Guide to explain its fascinating history and ground breaking research.

More information can be obtained by going to the website :- www.jodrellbank.net.

There is a café on site, but it might be a bit expensive so it might be a good idea to bring a packed lunch with you.

In the afternoon we will visit the Quinta Arboretum and the village of Swettenham, with a nice country pub.

Don't forget to pick up a form from the back of the church if you are joining the church trip to Jodrell Bank. These forms must be handed in to Chris or Andy BY THE 1st OF AUGUST , together with the money , in order to assess numbers for booking a coach.

Our Harvest celebration on 29th September will be joint service with St. Luke's at 10. a.m. Help will be needed on the Saturday to decorate the church. See Brenda for times.

Baking for Builders

You will have noticed that our new hall is progressing well. The hall trustees have decided that it would be nice gesture to provide the builders with a cake each Friday. We have a rota at the back of church with blank spaces if otheres would like to volunteer.

A Family Treasure Hunt around the village is arranged for the afternoon of September 21st. Starting at 3.30 it will finish at the Tennis club for a hearty barbecue. Tickets will be on sale at a later date.
