Thanks to Margaret Parrott, Anne Rolfe and Doreen Hindle and those who helped them to beautify our churches with wonderful floral displays for Easter. The churches looked magnificent. Thanks also to the Messy Church Team who organised the Good Friday crafts.

Open Church at St Owen Thanks to Flora and the Social Committee and those who worked hard to welcome visitors into St. Owen’s Church on Bank Holiday Monday

A big thank you to all who entered our “Name the Puppy” game. The name we chose (before the competition began) was Lucy and the lucky winner is Frances Bulmer who receives a small prize for matching our chosen name. The Game raised £57 which has been passed to the St Owen’s building fund. Lucy will arrive in Bromham on 2nd May and we are sure she is looking forward to meeting everyone. Thank you once again.

Deirdre and John.
