Janice and Geoff have asked us to remind you all that payment for the Children’s Society boxes is due.  They are aware that due to the pandemic payment by cash and subsequently receiving coins in change has reduced.  Should you feel that the amount you are contributing to this worthy charity has been decreased they ask that you make a one -off payment, alternatively if you would like to make a payment by Direct Debit they will supply you with the corresponding bank details.
Janice and Geoff tell us that all payments will be sent to the Charity around the middle of June.
The faculty for the removal of some of the trees around the Church is being processed.  As soon as we have a date when this will happen, we will let you know.

On the weekend of September 10th, and 11th.  Christ Church will be open for the weekend as part of the country wide National Heritage Weekend, it is also the Dioceses Annual Ride and Stride Weekend.  We are hoping to have a Flower Festival this week end, more details as soon as they are available.
Please feel free to pass this Newsletter on to anyone else, and to contact us if you would like anything in the next edition.
Please continue to take care of yourself and other people, stay safe and enjoy the celebrations.
