Alton Webteam: June 2018
On the 15th July it is our Church Anniversary Sunday and we thought it would be
a nice idea to have a picnic lunch after the Morning Service.
The plan is that we each bring our own picnic lunch and make our way to Hale

have our picnic on the grass at Hale Church followed by a walk to Farnham Park
this is optional ). There are swings and toilet facilities at Hale so it is a
Of course all our plans are weather dependent, and if it is wet we would stay
at Alton and hopefully be joined by our Hale and Rowledge friends, where our
picnic can be held in the hall along with some fun and games!
It would be helpful to have a rough guide of numbers so could you please let Jill in
the office, or any of the stewards know if you will be there. Also if you need
transport, please contact one of the stewards.
