I'm a BOF (Boring Old Fellow) and MOS (Miserable Old Soul) whose main interests are photography, cycling, walking and computers. Regrettably recent problems with my legs, back and heart have reduced the cycling and walking.
Our Treasurer set out today, Friday 19th August, on his 10 mile sponsored walk on behalf of the repairs to the church clock. on the 20th there is a coffee morning at the church in support of the same cause.
The weather forecast was not good for Friday, and rain was falling quite steadily when he set out, although it did improve a bit mid-morning.
The clock in the tower of St Edmund’s church recently decided that time had caught up with the interior workings, and it stopped. The repairs have been expensive, so an appeal is being launched to raise £1150.
On Friday 19th August the Treasurer will launch the Appeal with a 10 mile sponsored walk. On Saturday 20th August there will be a Coffee Morning in the church. There will also be a Raffle and Tombola. Please sponsor our Treasurer for the walk, donate prizes for the Tombola and Raffle, and be there on the morning of Saturday 20th.
The June issue of the Parish Magazine is now available, and for the first time you can not only buy a copy in the church, but you can access it on-line, via the web. It is in the form of a PDF file, so as long as you have Reader of an equivalent on your computer (and Adobe Reader is free, and often installed already on a new computer), you can access it. Just use the links on the right of this page to select Parish Magazine (under publications) to find out more, or for the June issue, just click here.
