The annual quiz was much enjoyed on 11th November and made £280.00 for Church Funds. Many thanks to The Revd. Canon Jane Baxter who set the questions and all who cooked and helped.
Remembrance Sunday – we welcomed Reader Jill Cannings who took the well attended service; ringers including a recent learner, Barbara and returner, Andrew, rang the bells before the service. The wreath was laid, names and reading done by Andrew Davidson and Wilf Kendrick, Bible reading read and refreshments served by Brian Newman and organ played by Carol Dry; thanks to all of them. The open collection of £150 has been sent to the Poppy Fund.
CHRISTMAS SERVICES – the usual leaflet will be delivered shortly with all Benefice services listed.
CAROL SERVICE – due to ‘staffing’ complications we are holding this on WEDNESDAY 20TH December at 7.00pm; this is a change for Caldecott but has been successfully done in other parishes. It is hoped this will be well attended and most schools will have broken up so children will be welcome to sing as usual. Refreshments will follow.
DECORATIONS – the tree and crib will be assembled on Saturday 17th December. Other decorators welcome too. Please let Mary know on 770242 if you would like to help and we can arrange a time.
The Fashion Show and Craft Fair held recently in aid of Hall funds were both very successful and enjoyable; the amounts raised will be published next month.
Please continue to donate to this vital source of help donations may be left in the church or at 14 Main Street and are delivered to the pick up point monthly.
PLEASE BE RESPONSIBLE and clear up after your dog. There have been many complaints recently about this not being done. The churchyard has a public footpath but dogs should be kept on a lead to avoid upsetting people who tend graves and mow the churchyard, hall green and playpark. Our volunteers do a magnificent job and we do not want to risk their and other people’s health, particularly now the evenings are darker.
