Parish Church News – February 2019


A Group service will be held on Sunday, 10th February at 10am at Charlton Church.

New Rector

Our new Rector, The Reverend Tonya Nixon, will take up her post in the middle of March 2019. Her Induction service will be held at Crudwell Church on Monday, 18th March at 7pm, followed by a reception in Crudwell School. Oaksey will be represented at the service by members of the PCC, but there will be a few spare places in the Church. If anyone would particularly like to attend, please contact the Churchwarden, Nick Mangnall, on 01666 577982.

Tonya and her husband Mark will be moving into the Rectory in Crudwell at around the same time. We all very much look forward to meeting them.

New Church Gates

The PCC is delighted to announce that two new bespoke Church gates have been installed at both ends of the Church path. The work was completed last December by Scott Miles, a carpenter of 27 years standing. He lives locally in Somerford Keynes.

The PCC would like to extend their grateful thanks to the Parish Council for their very generous grant towards the cost of the Project and also to the Oaksey Village Harvest Supper committee who raised a magnificent £622.00 from the hugely successful event last October.

You will see that the new gates have springs attached, so that the gates will now close slowly on their own. However, if you do happen to see the gates open, then do please close them to avoid damage to the springs.

PCC Drinks Party

This will be held on Saturday, 23rd February 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, 20th February at 1pm in the Rest at a cost of £4.00 per head. Unless you are known as a ‘regular’, please let Miriam (577689) know by Wednesday, 13th February if you are planning to come.
