Welcome to e-bulletin for 13th January

It seems like Spring-cleaning is in the air – the Recycling centres and charity shops are busy with ‘donations’. It’s a great opportunity in these dull days of January to purge cupboards and wardrobes.
You can Gift-Aid donations to charity shops and it’s a double-win for them, if the eventual buyer also Gift-Aids their donation.

Beat the January Blues and join us as we process to the orchard with torches and lanterns to ‘bless’ the trees to make them fruitful for the coming year.

Friday 21st January at 7:30pm: Cine Pew - the screen at All Saints Church, Wood Norton, presents: A Midwinter’s Tale
A ‘thespian’ comedy directed by Kenneth Branagh and starring a hapless Michael Maloney as a desperate – and depressed - actor in search of a cast to perform Hamlet in a disused church on Christmas Eve. The idea is to rescue both his and the church’s fortunes, but the odd assemblage of actors and a lack of funds threaten the whole project.

Doors open at 7pm. Light refreshments. Bring your own cushions. There is no charge for this event.
Running Time 99 mins
