SUMMER FETE  THANK YOU to everyone who worked so last weekend, to all the stallholders, to everyone who brought and made and baked things, and particularly to the organising committee led by Charlotte Fenton. We raised £2000 (£1000 to the organ fund, £500 to The Fulbrook Centre and £500 to ‘Silver Lining’). Also to everyone who provided food for our Patronal Lunch and to Sarah Pepys for organizing it.

APPOINTMENT of NEW VICAR  Applications are now closed. Interviews are expected to be held on 10 July. Candidates will be invited to visit the parishes the previous day. Plans for the visit are being coordinated by the Area Dean. The churchwardens will represent the parish on the appointments panel, chaired by the Archdeacon.

AGE UK DROP-IN SESSIONS  The last Tuesday of the month in the Parish Room during term-time.  The aim of Age UK is for older people to be supported to enjoy later life – one way of doing this is to ensure that they have the information they need to access all that is available to them. These drop-in sessions will provide a point of contact where people can ask questions about specific or general needs (which may include health matters, fitness, money, bereavement, avoiding scams, etc.), find out what’s going on in the area, and also a chance to simply have a cup of tea and a chat!

FRIENDS OF ALL SAINTS’ AGM: Advertised for 9 July will now take place on 18 July  at 3pm in the church. Business meeting 3.30pm, 3.45pm History of All Saints’, David Humphrey. All welcome. Refreshments.

ST PETER’S NET TEA Sun 19 July 3:00pm.  Join a GROUP SINGING some fairly easy, fun songs. First rehearsal on Mon 6 July 6.15pm – 7pm. Second rehearsal Mon 13 July same time, and just before the Tea. Contact Viv.
