CHURCH FAMILY NEWS
We continue to uplift David Kember and his family following Thelma's death and there was a sense of celebrating a life well-lived at the Thanksgiving Service recently. We are sorry to hear that Barbara Porter is now seriously ill — this has come as a shock as until recently she was very much enjoying life. We think of her husband and their neighbours, the Cresswells at this time. We remember David xxxxx and Di Wright as they recover from their operations. Rebecca is struggling at the end of her pregnancy and she and Dan and Owen await their new arrival. We hope that by the time of the next newsletter there will be good news.
LADIES COFFEE AND CHAT TIME
This month we are changing to the last Wednesday in the month. Do pop into Wetherspoons on 26th July and 30th August for a conversational coffee!
ACTION FOR CHILDREN
I don't yet have a total from emptying the boxes but so far I've paid in over £700 — so keep feeding them; it all mounts up. If you would like a collecting box in which to pop your spare change then do contact me. Thank you. Jennie Marlow (85698)
LUNCH-TIME ORGAN CONCERTS
St. Lawrence Church will again be having a monthly season of recitals on Thursdays from 1.10 — 1.45pm. Will Nisbet will be playing on 20th July, Gerald Marlow on 17th August and Rob Goldfinch on 19th September.
