Publishing online means we reach far more people than just in print. This means advertisers can reach more people too. If you would like to advertise, contact Stella on 07842761919 or email@example.com

We are holding another Quiz Night for the parish – this Saturday evening (May 30) at 7.30pm, on Zoom.
Last time we had around 16 teams who tackled an admittedly tricky quiz (strong words were had with the quiz master afterwards!) and we are aiming for even more this time and perhaps slightly more user-friendly questions. In fact the quiz master has resigned on the grounds that he wants a chance to answer questions too and the quiz will be devised and compered by Ed Eggleton.
We’ve also learned a lot about Zoom in the past few weeks so that should all be smoother too!
Last time we raised around £100 for the parish through donations and there will be the chance to donate again. Let’s beat that number too!
Want to join in? Email Stella on firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll send the Zoom link.
See you on Saturday!
Wills and what happens to our money and possessions after our death is not something most of us like to think about. Nor is the idea that money from what we leave may well go in inheritance tax. Wouldn’t it be better if some – or all – of what we might pay in tax could go to a cause we supported – even, perhaps, the parish?
There is a way of doing this – by making a codicil to your will, including a legacy for the parish but leaving the rest of your will unaltered, you could free your beneficiaries from a tax burden and help the parish. If you leave such a legacy – however small or large – via a codicil, the legacy will be completely exempt from Inheritance Tax.
Wendy Edwards, one of the LLMs in the parish, is happy to make a codicil to your will free of charge if you would like to add a legacy to the Parish of Badshot Lea and Hale to your will.

If you currently give by Standing Order to Lloyds bank, or do not give regularly, please would you consider signing up for the Parish Giving Scheme? Forms are available at the back of church. This simplifies administration for this parish, gets us the gift aid sooner, and will allow us to shut the Lloyds bank account which levies bank charges on us. Thanks.
