Wool Drops If anyone would like to do some knitting or craft whilst they are at home I can organise wool, needles, patterns etc to be dropped round. Please call me, Kate Rowe, on 07763 863954 to discuss what you would like. You can join in with the Knit and Natter projects, some of which are easy to do, or you can make whatever you like. I can provide some sewing kits as well if you prefer to sew. Craft activities are very good for you, apparently – particularly knitting!
Do you need help coping during the coronavirus crisis? Or can you offer help? Now is the time for Christian love in action – between us, we can ensure that people’s needs are met. If you need help,speak first to your pastoral visitor. If they are unable to help, Maureen Draper has kindly agreed to liaise with people so those who offer help are able to assist the most needy. Equally, if you are able to help with shopping, collection of medicines from a pharmacy, or anything else,please let Maureen know. Maureen’s number is 656255. Let’s all pull together, while remembering to take care of ourselves too – we are all beloved children of God.

Mark Wiffen is raising money for the children's charity Holibobs. The charity provides holidays for children suffering from cancer and leukaemia. The challenge is to complete as many climbs as you can in 24 hours of Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons. At 2,907 ft, completing 10 Y Fan is the equivalent of climbing Everest.….. tenuous maybe, but it just shows the enormity of achieving the full ten climbs. For your sponsorship Mark has set up a Just giving page, alternatively Mark also has a sponsorship form should you wish to donate directly to him. The challenge takes place over the 24 hrs from 6 pm on 9 May.
