Bill’s Letter November 2014

We are moving towards the end of 2014 already.  The clocks have gone back and the dark evenings are drawing in but we are seeing the beautiful autumn colours beginning to show as we move into the next season. Plans are also progressing for the site of the old church.  The idea is to make it a place that people will want to come and visit; a place for reflection; a place to tell stories of Christ, the church and the community.  Plans will be on…

Bill’s Letter October 2014

After a bit of a break, work has continued on the site of the old church.  The ground has been prepared for grass seeding and we are waiting for the grave stones that were moved for protection to be     replaced.  It is now possible to see more clearly what the state of the site will be when it is handed over ready for the next stage.  I would very much like for the community to get involved with ideas and   helping with the work. One…

Bill’s Letter September 2014

This August we have lost two of our village’s real characters: Muriel Bell and Lilly Noble. Muriel was well known for her involvement in the community over the years and for supporting the family business of funeral directors.  The family were very involved in supporting the Scouts and Muriel was a founding member of the Parents’ Committee.  She was a governor at St Peter’s school and of course did an amazing amount to support the church.  In her younger days she helped doing flowers and…

Friday evening, 12th September, 7:30pm ‘Noah’ (2014)    12 Rating Darren Aronofsky, the Academy Award winning director, takes the helm of this epic and somewhat controversial interpretation of the biblical tale of   Noah.  Russell Crowe portrays Noah as a tormented, dysfunctional man in a corrupt and ruined land.  The supporting cast features Jennifer Connelly,   Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins and Ray Winstone; in fact the women’s roles are greatly expanded and are made to be far more important than is   suggested in the Bible story.  The special…

Bill’s Letter Summer 2014

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make our Summer Gala such a success, and thank you to all who came to support us, despite the rather miserable weather. The gala is always timed to be as near as possible to the feast day of St Peter, our patron saint, which is celebrated every year on 29th June. St Peter’s school began the celebrations with a special service in school followed by a sleepover, which was a great success. It is always helpful to…
