Churchwarden Brenda’s October Notes

Early mornings and evenings are feeling a bit chilly and as I looked at my calendar this week, noticed that Friday 22 September was officially the first day of autumn.   The leaves on the beech trees in the churchyard are just starting to change colour, maybe in another couple of weeks they will show their true glory before they fall to the ground.   The yew trees either side of the path have been taken even lower and given shape and although looking rather woody, new shoots have started to appear which we hope to shape into bushes and will be far more manageable.

The PCC met on Tuesday 19 September and the following dates have been confirmed

8 October – Harvest Festival Service @ 11.00am and Lunch @ 12.30pm.   Should you wish to join us please put your name(s) in the red book or let one of the PCC members know.
