Weekend Away at home 19th – 21st September On the Saturday evening we are planning to have a “Fullbridge Variety Show” If you have a hidden talent and would like to take part by providing a serious or light hearted contribution please have a word with Matt Springett. 

Also Don’t forget that the programme for the weekend is on the notice board in the back hall together with a form with the names of all the church members.

We need to know if you are planning to be there in order that we may have numbers for catering and we also need to know what jobs you are able to help with in order that we can spread the load. We have tried to put all the names on the sheet but if your name is not there please add it to the bottom of the form.

Children’s groups during the summer holidays During the summer holidays, except for Family services when everyone is together, Pepper and Mustard will meet as one group in the back hall. We will re-start our normal groups on the 14th September. 

Wanted: Children’s summer clothing items and footwear (apart from slippers) (FOR ALL AGES INCLUDING TEENS) including school uniforms (sorry no blazers) for Honduras. If you have any items please can you pass them onto Terry and Ann. After 20 years, this will be the last year we will be collecting clothes for the children and it would be great to finish with a generous amount of goods. Please let Ann and Terry have them by the end of October. If you have any queries please have a word with them. Also any plastic charity bags please.

Remember: OCC will soon be upon us. Please remember the shoeboxes when you shop and maybe pick up an extra toothbrush, bar of soap or toothpaste. Any items can be given to Gilly, Louise or Ann.
