Happy New Year
We were blessed to have ten members of our parish in the choir for the Carol Service on Christmas Eve. Wonderful singing and excellent readers made for a superb service in our packed church. Thank you to everyone and to Rob for leading us all. It is a fabulous way to kick start the Christmas festivities.
Looking back through the year we have had excellent services and a big thank you to Poppy and her team for running the show. We enjoy services with Martin, Christopher, Ian and Rob and are now welcoming back Richard and Margaret Maslen after their time with Cherington and Avening. We are lucky to have excellent organists as well bringing out the best in our organ. Christopher Mulholland is retiring from taking services in the Benefice after Easter. We will miss him very much.
A very jolly pub night in the church was held in November and the next is scheduled for Friday 23rd February, 7-9pm Please do come along and join in the fun. Everyone is welcome.
The PCC is in the process of reordering the back of the church. The wooden floor is to be lowered to the level of the stone floor. This will enable the space to be used more easily. No tripping up on pub nights.
RABI was the receiver of £250 from the collection at Harvest Festival and from the sale of tickets for the Harvest Lunch. Remaining monies have been spent repairing the stays on the bells. Our 2 student bellringers are coming along well with John as an excellent teacher and the support of the Tetbury Band of Ringers.
