Bingo on 9th September was a great success – a full hall of over 70 of enthusiastic players and £457 was raised for Church funds. So many thanks to Sam who masterminded the event with Anthea, Jake and Rachel helping. Congratulations to Layla who won the star prize of ‘Tea for Two’ kindly donated by the Falcon Hotel – we hope she and her mother enjoyed their treat. The ice cream van arrived unexpectedly at half time so he was delighted with his business.

Harvest Festival – at 11.00am on Sunday 8th October. Any gifts of flowers, fruit and vegetables are very welcome for decorating on Saturday 7th.  There will be a ‘make me an offer’ sale after the service in aid of charity. Please bring bags of produce and cash. There will also be a children’s creative ‘Make a weird animal from fruit and veg held together with cocktail sticks’ competition – to be judged after the service.

Remembrance Sunday on 12th November – service at the earlier time of 10.50am in order to be ready for the 2 minute silence at 11am.



Thanks to all who sat in the Church to greet participators in this fundraiser for the Rutland Historic Churches Preservation Trust from whom we have received very generous grants in the past. Sadly local cyclists were not available to take part this year but perhaps some younger ones will be old enough in 2 years time?



Thanks for donations which were left at 14 Main Street; they are delivered monthly to the collection point. Referrals to this service increased by 25% since April and a wide range of food, household goods and toiletries are needed.

– Mary Davidson
