SINGING FOR FUN: The monthly meeting for singers takes place on Tuesday (note the different day) and will be held as usual at the Cross in Hand Methodist Hall at the top of Firgrove Road at 2pm. Favourite well-known songs and time for refreshments and a chat afterwards. Charges just cover the costs.
ALTAR FRONTALS: Thanks to a generous legacy, St Bartholomew’s Church has been able to commission and have made beautiful new altar frontals, which will be dedicated at a special Songs of Praise service at 4pm on Sunday June 4. Now the needlewomen (and men if any come forward) of the parish are to stitch new altar kneelers. Polly Meynell is offering a free workshop to anyone who would like to help in this task, whether by completing a section or even sewing just a few stitches. Please contact Viv Durne (01435 865682) or Carollyn Stanbridge (01435 866750) if you’d like to volunteer. The workshop will take place on Friday May 26.
FRENCH EVENING: There will be a French evening at the pub on Saturday June 3 with Django Jazz to entertain you. The menu du soir also has flavours of France with choices such as boeuf bourguignon, entrecote grillḗ, tarte provencale, salade nicoise, tarte au citron and crepes suzette. Our chefs for the evening are Messieurs Nicholas Botting et Alex Knight.
SERVICES: This Sunday is the sixth Sunday of Easter and services will be held at All Saints’. Holy Communion is at 8am with president and preacher Simon Hobbs and Parish Matins is at 10am with George Pitcher as leader and preacher.
