Rev Jane Stephenson at St Mary's Church, Tilston
1. A GREAT, BIG ‘THANK YOU’ to you all for coming to our Garden Fete! It was wonderful to see so many people there and we really hope you enjoyed yourselves in the sunshine!
Huge thanks also to the Bostocks for hosting the event and to everyone who helped set it up; ran stalls and games; sang; played music; made donations of money, raffle prizes and donations of all kinds; baked cakes; brought pigs; served Pimms; served beer; served teas and coffees; manned bouncy castles; organised the fairy trail; tidied up at the end of the day.
Thanks to Ian Bartholomew for opening the event and helping to draw the raffle too!
We’re so very grateful to everyone who helped and couldn’t have done it without you! It was brilliant!
2. ST MARY'S CHURCH FENCE
Thanks to everyone who's generously sponsored the new fence. We suggest a donation of £5 per paling, but all donations are welcome. Each section will be numbered and donor's names kept in a special book in the church (unless you want to remain anonymous). Many thanks to John and Sue Wright and Kate Buckeridge who organised the sponsored bike ride to raise money for the fence, as well as to all those fit people who completed the 50 mile circuit.
3. FIRST WORLD WAR CENTENARY
Various events are planned this year to commemorate the ending of the Great War 100 years ago. Please take photos of poppies in your garden and around the village and let us have them for displays. Family memories, photos and other memorabilia would also be welcome. Please contact Chris at the Reporter.
