Our fabulous parish summer fete is back, this year on June 10th at St George’s, Badshot Lea, from 12-4pm.
There will be all sorts of stalls with things to buy, games to play, delicious food and drink, a craft market and a grand raffle. It’s a proper community fete with people from across the villages which make up our parishes taking part.
So please, put the date in your diary, and also, if you’d like to run a stall, help set up, clear up, generally get stuck in, let us know. Email Maxine Everitt to find out more.
It’s Coffee Artz again this week, on Thursday, May 18th, 10.30am to 12noon, and the theme is Spring.
Everyone is welcome to join in and help create a picture of Springtime which will then be made into cards to sell.
Coffee Artz takes place on the first and third Thursday of each month and each time the group takes a different theme to inspire the art. No artistic skill is needed, no experience is needed and the equipment is all provided. Coffee, chat and cake are also provided!
It’s Christian Aid Week next week and we are holding a concert to raise money for this vital charity on Friday, May 26th at 7.30pm at St George’s.
There will be music from soloists and groups, including Saxooma saxophone quartet, choirs, a singalong, dancing, a raffle, drinks and nibbles. Tickets are £5 (children free) on the door.
This year, Christian Aid Week is focusing on Malawi where food, fuel, fertiliser and school fees have doubled in price in the last 12 months, and hard-working farmers are seeing their harvests fail as the climate crisis brings increasingly erratic weather. The impact of the recent Cyclone Freddy in Malawi has been devastating. Floods have washed away crops, over 500,000 people have been displaced and hundreds have lost their lives.
Please support Christian Aid at this concert and via their online appeal here.
Come and join us at St Mark’s Church on the second and fourth Friday of each month from 7-9pm for our ‘youth club for all ages’, aka Friday Night Games Night. The next ones are: April 14 and 28, May 12 and 26.

You will be able to sample some of local distiller Nibbs Gin‘s spirits, and hear about how the gin is made. Tickets are £5 which includes a drink, but if you don’t drink alcohol come anyway and have some soft drinks for a donation. Tickets on the door or contact Maxine Everitt.
We’ve not seen much of the snow, but you can still create a snowman or two at our Snowman Drive at St George’s on January 14th, 6pm-9pm.
This is a seasonal variation on a beetle drive and is a fun way to cheer up a dark winter evening. Create your snowman by rolling a die, then move move from table to table.
Bring your own snacks and drinks. If you want a fish and chip supper this will be available for £10 but you must book ahead for this. Please also let us know if you are coming even if you don’t want supper as this will help us judge numbers. Contact Maxine on email@example.com or 01252 318135.
