Remember the Plant Stall

There are plenty of plants available in and around the church porch at the moment.

Details of how to pay are on the notice near the plants. Stock changes daily so its worth checking out what’s available every few days. 24 hour opening whilst stocks last.

Prices are always reasonable and all plants are grown locally with minimum transport miles!

Christian Aid Week and Coffee Morning

The Christian Aid Coffee Morning on the Village Green last Tuesday.
A big THANK YOU to everyone who gave so generously to Christian Aid again this year. Over £1,800 has been raised so far. The weather for the coffee morning started terribly wet but by 10am the sun was out and it felt good to get together again. Maybe we felt for those people abroad suffering from the uncertain weather brought on by climate change. £513.10 was raised at the Coffee Morning.

The final result for Christian Aid Week in Natland, Oxenholme and The Oaks was £2,094. Thank you very much to all you generous people.
