The Coffee Shop
This Christmas we are filling bags for DASH - we’d like to make as many bags as possible so if you are free on Tuesday 26th November we will be bringing materials to sew simple drawstring bags. Please come and help. We’ll have a few sewing machines and all the materials.
If you work or can’t make that date but would be happy to machine sew a few bags please contact Alison Wheatley who can supply materials and instructions.
Knit or Crochet - we need these lovely angels (pictured right) made for mid December. Pop into knit and natter and Tuesday from 10 - If you can’t make that date contact Alison Wheatley and she’ll provide the simple pattern and materials. We are still looking for double knit & chunky white wool for this and other Christmas gifts we’re making.
If you bought a poppy or other knitted item from the Coffee Shop I’m delighted to tell you that we have raised £122 for Alexander Devine Children’s Hospice - thank you very much.
Nepal Leprosy Trust
The next prayer time for NLT will be on Tuesday 19th November from 8.00pm at the home of Hilda Rabbitt. More information from Hilda or via the Church Office.

Crisp packet collection

A bit more cleaning!
In order to keep both of our churches spick and span or at least fit for human habitation, we have a small amount of paid cleaning time for St Andrew's "high traffic areas" but the rest falls to a few people who have been faithfully serving in this way for a long time and really could do with your help. For the hale and hearty: some mopping, sweeping, hoovering and wiping at both churches and for the less energetic, a little light dusting and brass cleaning at St Giles'. If we can get several people in small teams on a rota, it will only be a couple of hours per month. Please contact Debbie in the Church Office if you can help.
