This month sees the annual Christian Aid collection. Someone will be knocking on your door during May 13th-17th. Please be generous as we can make a difference. 22 countries have halved their malaria rates in the last 6 years due to drugs and education provided by charities like Christian Aid.

If you still have an envelope and it is not collected in the next few days please return it to either the Methodist Church or St. Giles Church. Totals will be announced later once the massive task of counting has been completed.
This coming month we have our annual coffee morning for our own church. Many of our locals are starting to be aware of the forthcoming centenary of the present building which was opened in 1914. We are planning a celebration of the event and want to try and find out some information that has already been lost. We have a string of named sandstone blocks which go along the rear of the build at window lintel edge which we have recently had repaired. We don't know who the initials are for except for the six stones which have been turned and recut with new initials. These were totally obliterated and had to be turned to create a water seal.
Does anyone know who any of the initials are for? Come and join us for a chat and coffee and tea as usual from 10 am on Thursday 3rd May. We might even be talking about the Olympics or the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.

£83 was raised for own chapel funds. It was quite a quiet morning not helped by the awful weather kept some of the usual faces away.
