As we rush through November, our diaries seem to be packed already with planning for a huge variety of Christmas events around the village – where there will be something for everyone to enjoy – so keep your eyes open for posters everywhere.   With the Holly Tree Fair presumably having taken place a few weeks ago, St Mary’s is preparing to welcome the WI’s Christmas Tree Festival, when a number of organisations in the village have been invited to dress a tree, giving us an idea as to what they each represent as a group – some opportunity here for unusual decorations !!  For further details see elsewhere in the Record.

Please note that as the Revd George Heighton will be taking both of the Children’s Crib Services within the group of five churches on Christmas Eve 24th December, St Mary’s Crib Service will now take place at 5.00pm which is an hour later than usual.  Do come along and take part – all welcome.


The Revd George Heighton is continuing to introduce a regular very short Morning Prayer at 8.30am on Saturday mornings in December There will be the usual mid-week Holy Communion at 10.30am in St Mary’s on Wednesday December 13th


We would like to wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year, and we hope all those who have been ill recently are well on the road to a speedy recovery. Our sincere sympathy goes to all those who have lost loved ones this year.
