St Augustine’s Church News: Church Gardens - Brian Sitford has taken care of mowing the church lawns, and maintaining the hedges, over many years, with great dedication and love. He now needs to stop doing this because of his health. Alan and Jenny Cattermole have also given an enormous amount of time and love through the years to maintaining the flower beds in the front and back of the church, and feel that it is time for them to relinquish at least part of this very physical work. So the church is currently considering how they might manage these different aspects of the garden in the future. If you would be willing to be part of this, or have ideas about people that could be approached, please speak to Jenny Cattermole. Youth News - Apologies ...This is a message related to Christmas! Yes, Emily knows it’s only (June), but Emily has a plan which needs plenty of prep time and which needs your help!! The Church would like to have a knitted nativity set which will be used in Advent (just over 5 months away). Emily is not a knitter but is hoping some of the community are. (Actually, she says she can knit a scarf but that’s all she can knit!). Could you help knit 24 sheep, several shepherds, Mary and Joseph and 3 kings? Would you be willing to donate either some money to buy wool or donate some wool? Please speak to Emily 07825235907 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org Do you have any good, second hand toys you could donate to the children’s toy box? If so please let Emily know
