Mark and Zoe have very kindly offered to host a coffee morning to raise funds for a wonderful cause, Macmillan Cancer Support. So many of us know family members, friends or work colleagues who have been affected by cancer, so this is a great opportunity to come along to our lovely local and catch up with fellow villagers and friends for some delicious cakes, a breakfast bap, a cup of tea or coffee, and donate to a very worthy charity. Come along and enjoy some lovely treats. Thank you all in advance for your support.

We see signs of summer's passing in golden leaves, shortening days, misty mornings, autumn glow. We sense it passing in rain that dampens, winds that chill, Harvest's bounty placed on show. Creator God, who brings forth both green shoot and hoar frost, sunrise and sunset, we bring our thanks for seeds that have grown, harvests gathered, storehouses filled, mouths fed. And, as your good earth rests through winter's cold embrace, we look forward to its re-awakening when kissed by Spring's first touch.
For summer's passing and harvest home
WE THANK YOU
