Rood Screen Funding Update

Our S O S Save our Screen appeal has got off to a tremendous start with donations coming in and a welcome commitment by Ugbrook Environmental Ltd of £5,000 towards it; this helps a great deal when we apply to other Trusts for grants.

Other events in aid of the screen include
Sunday 17th June from 2.30pm to 5pm - Cream tea in the Parish Hall
Sunday 1st July - Christina and John Everett have kindly offered to do a lunch
Saturday 14th July - David and Wendy Wells at Becky Falls are offering a BBQ evening for families which we believe the "scary monsters show"will feature in the entertainment. Plans still need to be finalised so watch this space.

A big thank you to everyone.

Jill Rogers and Joan Hayes, churchwardens.



Pets Church Service - Sunday 12 August

For the last couple of years, St Winifred's church has held its popular Pet Service during the midsummer festivities in the village. This year we are not having it over the Jubilee weekend, but will hold it during the Show and Fair weekend in August ie on Sunday 12th at 5pm; there will be no service in the morning so this will allow the exhibition in the church to still be available during the morning for people to see, especially those doing teas in the parish hall on Saturday.
