New! 300km Charity Cycle Challenge – Jun 23rd/24th – please sponsor us

Less than a week to go before some members of our congregation set off with a group of other local cyclists on a 300km sponsored cycle journey to help the Diana Camidge Foundation fund research into a cure for CJD and GSS (a degenerative brain disease which claimed Diana’s life and for which there is currently no cure).

The riders: David Booth, Jan van den Burg, Dave Judge, Chris Salkeld, James Dunn, Michael Foggie, Andy Walker, Chris Ramsey, Richard Swan
Support crew: Greg Sehringer, John Camidge, Chris Burdett

If you can, please help the team meet their fundraising target by making a donation on their fundraising page here.  Your help will be very much appreciated.

Many thanks to all those who have already donated.

Raising last money to pay for Churchyard Extension

Amazingly over £40k has been raised but about £800 remains to be raised to pay for our beautiful new churchyard.

The Churchyard Committee would like to give a big effort to clear this balance so there will be a cake sale on Sun 18th June at SJ, a 100-square board and the opportunity to make donations, preferably gift-aided.

Please do what you can to help clear the debt.  Thank you.

(Please note, the event in the diary for 17th June is not now taking place.)
