NEWS

Annual Churchyard Spring Clean

Monday 10 April starting at 6.00 pm. 

Once again it is time for the annual churchyard spring clean to remove the dead leaves, broken branches and litter that have accumulated over the winter months.  If you are able to spare an hour or two that evening it would be really appreciated as the more helpers there are, the easier is the task.  Please bring garden rakes and wheel barrows if you have them.  Once the clean-up has been done the mowers can start their summer

grass cutting which makes the churchyard look so much neater. 

HELP WITH MOWING THE GRASS THROUGHOUT THE SUMMER

WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.  THANK YOU

 

 

Recycled Cards

We have a selection of Easter Cards for sale, 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".

Mothers’ Union

The Mothers’ Union are most grateful to all who supported the Coffee Morning the Tuesday before last.  £304 was raised towards the purchase of a Diocesan Holiday Caravan.

 

DATES FOR YOUR DIARY

Tuesday 11 April

Mothers’ Union 7.30 pm in school.  Speaker: Vanessa Cameron ‘Memorials in St. Mary’s’.
