Colin Cradock would like to invite you to celebrate his 80th birthday with a buffet after the morning service on Sunday 18th February. Please could you let Kay know if you are able to attend so she has an idea about numbers for catering.
We are growing our rented space so please call Ruth on 07546 102508 if you wish to use the church premises that are at times which are not for a booked meeting.
Do check the Notice Board for events that might be of interest, not run by Unity Oldland.
Not already, surely!
The Real Easter Egg is the only Fair Trade Egg of the 80 million chocolate Easter eggs sold each year. As you may know the Real Easter Egg comes with the Easter Story in the box.
Brenda Flay would like to know how many to order so has put a list up on the notice board.
Ordering in advance would be much appreciated.
Traidcraft Exchange is this year championing the cause of ‘Hidden Entrepreneurs’ These are not the business executives who appear on Dragons Den but the small farmers and artisans in poor countries.
These people often have the drive to work hard and support their families, but are unable to progress due to the lack of a little extra knowledge or capital to invest. Traidcraft Exchange works with these people to help develop their potential.
The good news is that the British Government is once again matching all the pounds raised for this cause until 11th April this year. Therefore £100 from us means £200 for Traidcraft Exchange. I shall hold the annual ‘BIG BREW’ again in March so please look out for details. Brenda Flay.
Escort for the Disabled Club community bus
The Disabled Group that meet at our church, have a vacancy for an escort. Molly has reluctantly retired. It would entail giving up a few hours every three months on the 2nd Friday afternoon in the month. Someone is needed for 9th March please.
Further details from Doreen Lindup on 932 6591 or talk with Molly. Please don’t wait for someone else, please get in touch if you can help please. Thank you.
During March there will be three Traidcraft stalls, on the following dates:
As a result there will not be a separate Big Brew this year, but there will be Bric-a-Brac, Easter Eggs and cakes available on all these dates.
All the profit from the non-regular items will go to the Traidcraft Exchange Hidden Enterprises appeal. This money will be matched by the government, so 'Thank you' in advance for your support.
