Within our Deanery, the priest at Middleton Cheney, Nick Leggett, has started a foodbank which runs out of Chacombe Church, and they are always looking for donations.

Rather than have fixed opening hours they run a delivery and collection service.

Revd Nick can be contacted via email: -

MacMillan Coffee Morning

A huge thank you to Zoë & Mark for hosting our MacMillan coffee morning at the Crewe Arms, Hinton in the Hedges and generously providing teas coffees and bacon rolls.

A massive thank you also to everyone who baked and bought delicious cakes, donated money, and joined us.

So far, we have raised an amazing £420!

Thank you all!!

Looking ahead to November

All Souls service at Farthinghoe on Wednesday 2nd November at 7pm. Lists will be at the back of our churches to include names of loved ones you wish to have read out.

And Finally

In praise of books

If you cannot read all your books...fondle them---peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them, at any rate, be your acquaintances.
