Hello Everyone

Angela Tilly has asked me to put in a plea for people to buy tickets for the barn dance on Saturday 18 May in the village hall. This is another fund-raiser for the church heating fund and you will see below that the plant sale was a huge success and we would like the barn dance to be the same. It will be a fun night and includes a tasty supper to sustain you through all the dancing.

And another little plea from me to pop along to the village green on Monday at 11am for Fairwarp’s own contemporary British folk tradition. I know it might seem slightly bonkers but then a lot of our national traditions are!

Happy Reading

Clarification on the family service

The monthly all-age worship/family service will in fact be on Sunday 5 May – in case there is any confusion.

Woodland creatures ring gilded shells – a new tradition for Fairwarp?
Monday 6 May 2019 11.00am on the village green

Come along with all the family, wear woodland creature masks (provided) and rattle gilded shells (also provided) in a procession around the village green. No it’s not a joke. This is part of a project by university student Abbie La Rooy which looks into how rural traditions evolve. Intrigued? Find out more on the website and how you can be part of this. It should only last about 45 minutes.

Fairwarp Village Plant Sale – a great success!

Congratulations to Anita Long, Lisa Mahony, Judy Chittenden and Liz Gutteridge and all who contributed to the success of Saturday’s plant sale in the Village Hall by donating plants or buying them.
It was a great occasion and raised the splendid total of over £700 for the Heating Fund. There were various items of church merchandise on sale – special thanks to Angela Tilly and June Barton, and to Heather Dewhurst for printing.
