Churchwarden Brenda’s Notes for May

Well is it or isn’t it?   Our typical English weather can’t seem to make up its’ mind what it wants to do.   We have gone from cold, wet and dreary days to being tempted to bring out our summer clothes from winter storage.   But then again I keep reminding myself that it is only the end of April and those warm sunny days aren’t the norm.   It was lovely to see the daffodils in profusion and now the blossom on the trees – nature in all her glory.

The first Saturday of April we held our Annual Coffee Morning and Spring Gardens.   As well as our normal stalls we were fortunate to have 4 craft stalls which added variety.   Over 130 people visited us and helped us raise £1200.00.   Thank you to the Brackenbury family for their generosity in letting us use the hall and gardens.   Thanks must also be given to everyone who helped or contributed to make the morning such a success.

On 23 April we held our A.G.M. Reports were given by the various officers.   Elections took place and Herbert Wakefield and I were re-elected as Church Wardens and Elizabeth Brackenbury, Margaret Hodgkinson, Audrey Newton, Cynthia Stacey, Colin Wightman, Jean Wightman as P.C.C. Members and Ian Godson and Sylvia Wakefield will be co-opted as members.   A P.C.C. meeting will be held in May when no doubt social events for the year will be organised.

Will you please remember in your prayers Robin and Elizabeth Brackenbury, Richard and Rae Cumberland and Margaret and Brian Hodgkinson.
