Pannal News

Village Hall News: the new extension and facilities were nominated for a National Award and last month Mel Raine and Pat Fitzgerald were invited down to Chatham, Kent to pick up their Finalist Certificate at the Biffa Awards ceremony for any “local Heroes” who have delivered exceptional improvements to local community facilities. Last year saw the completion of the project which now provides major new improvements to our facilities at the village hall including a new function room, bar and big first floor meeting room where many new community events are now being held. If you haven’t seen the new facilities you can have a look round as part of the AGM Meeting at 7.30pm Tuesday, November 6 when there will also be the launch of the new Pannal Junction website for us all to link into.

Church Services: Sunday, November 4. St Robert’s Pannal 8am Holy Communion, 9.30am Parish Communion (note no Junior church), 11am Parish Communion, 6pm All Souls Evening Service. Beckwithshaw – 11am Matins.

Coffee morning: at St Robert’s Church on Wednesday, November 7 in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support and Saint Michael’s Hospice. There will be a variety of goods for sale: Christmas cards, books, cakes, knitted garments including dolls’ clothes and Christmas decorations. The coffee morning will run from 9am to noon so plenty of opportunity to have a coffee and bun after dropping off the children at school!

Afternoon tea with hymns: this event, formerly known as Saturday Praise takes place on Saturday, November 10 from 3 to 5pm in the Chapter House at St Robert’s for anyone who cannot attend the usual church services. Please contact the church office with any hymn request and if you require transport.
