Have your say on the running of the village hall: the management committee AGM is on Thursday, May 9 at 7pm in the committee room. All villagers are welcome to attend. Come and find out how the Raise the Roof Campaign is doing and what the architect is recommending, as well as what plans there are for future fundraising events.

Christian Aid Week: is from May 12 to 18 so Helen’s team will be delivering envelopes at the start of the week and then collecting them later that same week. Helen would like to thank Christine and Dick, and Barbara and Terry for joining the team, but more collectors are always welcome. If you think you can spare an hour or two to help or would like more information about what it involves contact Helen at Barnstones or on 01423 866199. Christian Aid supports self-help development projects in less economically developed countries, irrespective of religion. Please give generously.

Super Soup Lunch: Helen and Nigel are once more hosting a super soup lunch in support of Christian Aid on Saturday, May 18 at Barnstones with two sittings at noon and 1pm. Enjoy delicious home-made soup (Karen Wyldbore has already made hers!) and good company. If you would like to join us, please let us know in advance by calling at Barnstones or telephoning 01423 866199.

Church Services: for Sunday, May 5, the sixth Sunday of Easter, 9.3 am Eucharist at St Thomas and 10am at the Methodist Church.
