Goings on at All Saints

Well wasn’t it nice to be called the Village with Poppies. The youngsters did a great job with the pump after alot of hard work in th Village Hall painting them all. The Church looked wonderful with the Poppy on its Tower, big thanks need to go the the Parish Council and Village Hall who helped us with the finances of it.

Talking of lights, we have had a number of enquiries about having the lights on for special occasions and you will have seen the Church aglow on a number of occasion. I will have to say that seeing it alight as I drive past always brings a smile to my face wondering what event or person we are celebrating and of course appreciating what a good idea it was when we installed the lights way back in 2003. In fact the idea was born during the celebration of the Millenium in 2000 when Rosemary Barham who lived in School Lane, and a leading light on our Church Council organised some mobile lighting and showed us all how lovely a floodlight All Saints could be. If you would like the lights on to celebrate or remember a loved one please contact Sue Williams on 07855414941 or myself on

Now it’s almost got to the stage when we can mention the “C” word. In fact although as I right it’s a touch early when you read this its will definitely

As we have in the past we will be having a Christingle Carol Christmas Celebration with something for all together with festive fare at All Saints, on Sunday 8th December at 4.00pm which I am pretty sure will be preceded by a celebrations round the pump with Carols in the days before. This though is very much still in the planning stage so I will not be stealing the Village Hall Committee’s thunder by saying more. Suffice to say there will be a chance to celebrate the lighting of the tree decorated as always with decorations from around the Village.

Let me close this final edition of All Saint News by wishing you all a very happy Christmas, may yours be a joyous one and in the hope that 2020 is all you could wish for.
