Tysoe W.I.’s Festival of Remembrance in St Mary’s to mark the anniversary of the end of WW1 exceeded all expectations. Poppies were produced by WI members made from all sorts of different materials and the display of photos and information relating to Tysoe and its servicemen who served during the war, drew a great deal of interest in Tysoe and from other villages as well. There was always someone in church coming or going, so congratulations to everyone who had contributed to the wonderful displays and skilful ideas.
Way back on October 21st we held our usual Harvest Festival with lunch in church afterwards, but surely it’s not too late to thank all those who were involved in decorating St Mary’s with fruit and flowers, providing the lunch for a large number of people, and gathering up the fresh produce and taking it to Agnes Court, a Leonard Cheshire Home in Banbury. Tysoe schoolchildren had been involved in adding to some of the non-perishables already collected, and these were all taken and gratefully received by the Food Bank in Coventry. Upton House National Trust Gardens had donated some big trays of fruit and vegetables as usual and we would like to thank them for their generous contribution.
Best wishes for a speedy recovery to all those who have not been well recently, or have been in hospital. We would like to send sincere sympathy to all those who have lost loved ones this year.
* We wish everyone a very Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year*
