PCC Fundraising and Social Events:- 9th September BINGO; Quiz 11th November.

Rutland Historic Churches Preservation Trust – the sponsored Ride and Stride will take place on September 9th; it would be lovely to have more local riders so please start training; the back roads around the Benefice make a very pleasant ride for both old and young legs;  also the church will need to be welcoming on the day.

Please think about supporting this as the Trust has been very generous to St Johns with grants towards the spire, heating and roof recently; more information nearer the time.

ANNUAL PAROCHIAL CHURCH MEETING this will be on May 11th at 7.30pm in the Church.

Following the death of John Nicholls we have a vacancy on the PCC and really need more help. We meet 4 times a year, very convivially,  so it is not arduous and can be interesting.

Please come along to the Annual meeting and support your small but loyal Parochial Church Council who work so hard to keep our Church going.
