Calling children of all ages!

Please do come along and take part in our very popular Nativity play. We need young children to take the parts of Angels, Shepherds and Kings plus more children and adults to help. We would also like older children to come along and participate in telling the Christmas story.

As in previous years, we will be having a small, friendly pony that will play a prominent part, so please do support this service and ensure we have another good turnout.

Hope to see you at 10am on 23rd December (for an 11am start) to select your part and costume.

For more information, please call Helen McKenna on 577279.

 PCC Drinks Party – a date for your diary

Following the great success of the PCC drinks party in previous years, it has been decided to host another one next year on Saturday, 23rd February 2019 at Oaksey House from 6.00pm to 8.00pm. The purpose of the party is to not only thank all those who have helped the Church in any way, but also to extend the invitation to everyone who has helped with other village activities, such as the Fete, the Shop, the Village Hall, the Playing Field, the Lunch Club, PHEW, the School Governors, the History Society and, of course, the Parish Council. It will also be an ideal opportunity to welcome recent arrivals to the village. Please also remember to bring your diaries with you as the party will be an opportunity for you to volunteer to man the Church throughout the summer from Saturday, 23rd March 2019 to Saturday, 5th October 2019 from 10am to 4pm (in 2-hour slots).

 Oaksey Lunch Club

 The next lunch will be on Wednesday, 12th December at 1pm in the Rest at a cost of £6.00 per head. Please note that this is a week earlier than normal. Unless you are known as a ‘regular’, please let Miriam (577689) know by Wednesday, 5th December if you are planning to come.

Miriam would like to take this opportunity to thank all the volunteers who have helped in any way over the past year, whether it was preparing food, serving the meals or washing up afterwards. Your efforts are very much appreciated.

The Lunch Club would like to continue in the future, but this does, of course, depend on volunteers coming forward. So, if you feel that you could spare a couple of hours each month (except August), please let Miriam know on the above number.

The lunch in January will be on Wednesday, 16th January 2019 at 1pm in the Rest at the usual cost of £4.00 per head.
