All Saints Church News
As September arrives so does Peter Frizzell to put the church yard to bed for the year. So that all that is left for the team is dealing with the autumn flush and a bit of a tidy up.
The Church has been open at the weekends over the summer time as well as the Summer Trail week for which we had bought a stamp for those visiting on the trail. Not forgetting of course the Church Cycle ride when we had a few additional visitors. It was nice to see the number who commented in our visitors book. During August we had a very successful Messy Church organised by Mary Alderton which proved a nice get together for both youngsters as well as parents.
So what’s coming up?
12th October Harvest Celebration Service at All Saints 4.00pm.
26 October: 100th Bomb Group at Thorpe Abbotts Then and Now. An illustrated talk by Ron Batley and Richard Gibson together with Afternoon Tea in the Village Hall, commencing 2.30pm Tickets £6 from Chris MacDonald 669116.

So a busy time coming up for the PCC, oh yes Christmas is just around the corner!!!!
This always falls on the second Sunday in November, this year the 9th. It is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives for the peace and freedom we enjoy today. On this day people across the nation pause to reflect on the sacrifices made by our Service men and women. Every poppy helps us to support the British Armed Forces past and present, and their families.
Please give generously and wear your poppy with pride.
