NEWS

Mothers’ Union – Spring Day – Tuesday 21 March

The Diocesan Caravan at Morecambe, used by needy families, is to be replaced.  Our Mothers’ Union have been asked to contribute to the cost.  To help with this an extended ‘Coffee Morning’ will be held on Tuesday 21 March.  Holy Communion at 9.30 am, to celebrate Lady Day, will be followed at 10.00 am by coffee in the Narthex.  There will also be stalls with cakes, spring flowers and plants etc.  No admission charge, but donations for coffee and the stalls will be greatly appreciated.

Electoral Roll

A copy of the Electoral Roll is now in the Narthex. If you wish to be elected to the Electoral Roll please check whether your name is already included and if not please see Graham Tipper who will be able to provide an application form for completion and submission to the Parochial Church Council.



Recycled Cards

We now have a small selection of Mothers' Day cards available on the card stall. We also have a selection of Easter Cards, some at 50p each and others at 3 for £1 or 10 for £2.50.  During 2016 we were able to make payments to various organisations, including our own Mellor School, totalling £581. Since we started making cards back in November 2006 the grand total of our giving is £8,400. Without your wonderful support we would not be able to do this, so "Thank You" to all of you who have supported, and continue to support, our efforts. From "The Card Ladies".
