1. BLESS THIS ANIMAL.  An outdoor family Service (joint) to bless the countryside, animals and the community.  We will also be Beating the Bounds for Rogation Sunday.  11.15am on Sunday 17 May in the field by White House Farm, Shocklach (opposite the Bull).  If wet, in the barn.  Followed by refreshments.  Pets, animals and owners welcome.  Donations to St Edith's and Christian Aid.

2. BRIGHTER VESTRY  Thanks to Kate Buckeridge who, with help from John and Sue Wright, has painted the vestry and evicted 50 years of spiders.  We now have a pleasanter place for wedding couples to sign the register.  We can also see how much brighter the church will look when we pain the nave with funding from this year's Garden Trail.

3. PEACE DOVE FOR THE MEMORIAL HALL  Thanks to Chris and Tess Gilbert and helpers for creating a large mosaic 1914-18 Peace Dove for the Memorial Hall.  This was begun by children at the Easter Holiday Club (along with games and songs), with help from adults in the afternoons.  Click 'Children/Youth Activities' for pictures.
