General Notices 

Action for Children Just a reminder that this is the time of year that collecting boxes would normally be collected. However it was decided to make a regular collection in place of boxes, and so Hazel will gratefully receive any donations to Action for Children. There will also be a box at the back of Church on Sundays

Eileen Wragg writes: it is good to be able to announce that the Lunch Club will be re-opened on Tuesday 8th October.
Up to the end of June 20+ members were coming week by week. Almost all are looking forward to coming again when we re-open. When the Church took over, in 1994, quite a lot of Church members came to the Lunch Club. It would be good if this tradition could be repeated. I’m planning to come along for my lunch on Tuesdays. Would you consider coming too? The Lunch Club provides a good meal in pleasant company for a vey reasonable price.

Toddlers - Friday Toddlers will not meet on Friday 25 October  & none of the Toddler Groups will meet during the week commencing 28 October
