Thank You to Everyone who came to the Fete

The weather forecast was right and though we had to retreat indoors for the Church Fete last Saturday, it still seemed a happy and busy event. A group of very tuneful children from St. Mark's School kept our spirits up and £1,800 was raised for church funds. There were plenty of plants for sale and since it was a bit too wet to linger many are still available in and outside of the church porch, none the worse for regular wetting.

It's very good to be able to welcome Angela the vicar back from her sabbatical this weekend.

Damage to the Trees on the Village Green

Things can get out of hand......
Trees on the Village Green are being damaged by people climbing them. Click here for more details.

Comment from Rhian Peters:
Five of these had been hammered/ screwed into the oak tree.  This was on the ground where it might have injured someone.  Also a claw hammer nearby.
