Harvest Thanksgiving in the Church at 7 pm on Friday 4th October, immediately followed by the Harvest Supper in the Parish Hall. Farming is the reason these hills are maintained as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Harvest Thanksgiving central to our sense of community, a time when we all gather from our far-flung homes to celebrate together. Everyone is most welcome to attend.

Many thanks to Jenny and David for hosting the July Coffee Morning at Tack Barn, where Jenny had baked some wonderful accompaniments to the coffee. The results of the 100 Club draw were: 1st Geoff Smith, 2nd Ted Pugh, 3rd Mike and Barbara Dawe.

Many thanks to Brigid and Paul for hosting the August Coffee Morning at Tyn-y-Vron, where the Raffle Table was so well-stocked that the Rev. Simon had to declare the holders of lucky tickets could receive more than one prize or we would all have had to stay the night. We took the chance to draw the 100 Club draw for September (thereby allowing Peter to skip off for his honeymoon with Josie) and the results were: 1st Roger Garfitt, 2nd Bonnie Dobson, 3rd Margaret Magowan.

The October Coffee Morning will once again be held in the Parish Hall on Saturday 19th October, 10.30 – 12 pm, hosted by Jude Powell, whom we must also thank for co-ordinating the Coffee Mornings throughout the year. Do turn out in force to show our appreciation to Jude.
